    Cool American Airlines

    I am so glad that AA is going to be flying from Miami to Bonaire. Our options for Christmas/New Years 2018 were:

    1. AA from MIA to Bon $429
    Add expense for one way rental car (Total expense $150)
    4 hour drive to Miami
    Add possible 1 or 2 nights hotel in Miami ($0 - $250)

    2. Delta from DAB to BON $1,374
    Hometown departure

    I think the convenience of leaving from DAB (and not having to drive to MIA) is worth something.....but NOT worth almost $1,000 per person (2 people traveling). That is outrageous. For me, this was an easy decision...American Airlines!! Helps that I have gold status on American too!

    For our American friends:

    American Airlines will fly more often between Miami and Bonaire during the winter season. From 9 June there will be a weekly flight, but from 15 December onwards, that number will be increased to four return trips per week.

    In addition to the existing Saturday flight, flights arrive on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. An Airbus A319 is used, which can accommodate 128 passengers

    FYI...We booked about a month ago with AA for our Sept trip, one way Bon to Mia then to Tulsa. I checked last week and flights had changed, we weren't notified. We still left Bon at about 4pm but now were scheduled to leave MIA at 3:30pm. The only option was an overnite in MIA. We canceled and got flight back with Delta. Wondering how long before Delta changes our flight.

    Booked AA Flights to Bonaire from Des Moines, Iowa 11 months in advance. Checked at least once a month because there are always changes. A few months before trip (January) checked AA Flights again and saw flight from Des Moines to Dallas was OK !!!! Flight from Dallas to Puerto Rico was OK !!!! But............The final flight was Puerto Rico to Miami !!!!!!!! AA had decided to not fly to Bonaire anymore but forgot to inform me and just decided to send me to Miami Florida instead. When I called they said " You don't want to go to Miami " !!!!!!!!!!! That has been my biggest flight change so far. Moral of story check your flights often because they do not care !!!!

    I don't understand your post. When was this flight you are talking about? AA hasn't flown from PR to Bonaire direct in maybe 10 years....

    and it was about 10 years ago. Same thing happened to us, we weren't notified, AA just dropped the last leg. In my case, they just left us in San Juan. Fortunately for us, I checked then re-booked through curacao.

    It appears AA is going to be our 2019 trip provider as it will be lowest cost by 255 per ticket. Our connecting flight has a near 2-hour window and I certainly believe that should not be a problem for our luggage to make in on the flight to Bonaire leave @ 6am CST and arrive 4:15 Bonaire same day---sounds like a plan to me.

    So we booked flights Business Class last week Sunday and looked this morning and tickets went up over $1,000 each! When we looked at seats they only have 8-seats on the flight down from Miami to Bonaire so 1/4 has been sold in this section but the remaining seats on both legs are showing available! I have never flown 1st/business on AA but we have on United and great service but Delta was just horrible so we will see how things go----and will of course keep a close eye on making sure of any flight changes that might take place.

    Does anyone know whether American will continue frequent direct flights to Bonaire from Miami this June (2019)? That would be much more convenient for non-Saturday travel, instead of having to go through Curacao.
