Hello All to everyone who read this!!
While trying to book a flight from SJU
, I realized that American Airlines is the current one and only airline who flies the route nonstop. While Spirit Airlines and even US Airways would take me, I would have to go as close as FLL
to get to SDQ
. But the biggest surprise, and that made me anger, its that, the direct AA
flight, its at least $306.00 USD!!!!... It is only a 1hr flight, and considering, that to NY (I had booked a flt to NYC last week) was $189 roundtrip - SJU
. And even to EWR
, the roundtrip from SJU
was only $209.
So, why charge $250+ for such a short trip, knowing that most of the people who travels are workers who could not afford that much money. Surprisingly, the route does great, since Dominicans can't stand being away from their island for several months.
We had other carriers serving the route, but they either cancel the route, or go bankrupt.
What are your thoughts?
Thanks for reading!
