We booked our flight 2 weeks ago with WestJet for January & yesterday the same seats were $400 each more round trip. That's big. We have found with WestJet the price doesn't drop much the closer the trip becomes. Although it is nice to have lower fares but we are happy to be able to go.

Checked the prices from MSY (New Orleans) to SXM for Aug 2017, and the cheapest was $827 per person. That's about $300 more than we have ever paid.

When checking tickets, you need to check daily.. I know for us, prices change a lot... I try to go in every day, or every other day. Be surprised how much the fares change... Bottom line. do not buy so quickly, check frequently...

We live in Seattle and it's quite a feat to get to SXM. We always overnight in Miami. For the last 15 years the fare has basically remained the same (around $800)and we always book in April for the October trip. I have had people in the travel industry ask me the best way to book this trip as it can be very confusing.

AA has always come through for us even after the merger.

I am waiting for the JB schedule to extend a bit so we can book our mid-January trip. I did notice that AA has a R/T one stop flight with decent times for $357 (BOS) which is a steal...but..I just don't trust them to actually keep that flight and not change it to some bizarre connection fiasco.

SO it's not the price with AA..it lack of confidence.
