The airlines know that people living in Florida are wealthy so they charge them more to travel and give the lower prices to the less fortunate in the EAST!




If they were wealthy they wouldn't be living in FLA but in SXM

Tell me about it. We usually pay around $450 or so for a N/S, R/T from JFK. So far the cheapest fare for this itinerary is $968 with the most expensive being $1200. I'm waiting for a reasonable fare before we buy.

2 weeks ago I booked Jet Blue nonstop from JFK $390 RT for travel in the beginning of June. We used to pull the trigger at $500 so not bad.

One reason is that airlines like Allegiance offer dirt cheap flights to Florida from lots of locations. Many people assume that they can get a real deal to SXM and other Caribbean destinations from Florida. Nope.

Haaaa you are funny. I live in Florida and by no means am I rich. I am retired after 21 years in law enforcement and my annual pension is $35k. Oh that's before my $1,440 per month for health insurance which is why my better half still works full time and I have a part time job. Annual gross income for both of us in last 25 years has never reached 6 figures. For me to save enough to afford my $781 per person airfare plus all the other expenses has taken me over a year. I guess I take offense to your comment since we have a lot of Canadian snowbirds here in Sarasota who either fill up an RV resort called Sun N Fun with their $200,000 (US) motor coaches or have a condo/house and we wonder how they can afford two homes when us Floridians can barely afford one.

Yes Carol, it was only directed at you as a joke, I guess some folks don't pay any attention to the symbols at the end of the posts. After having lived in Florida for a few years, I certainly do know that all people living there are not wealthy!
