Unfortunate that it would cost my daughter's family ( 2 adults, 3 children) over $5,000 airfare to come Presidents Week. I wish airlines would add extra flights or make fares more reasonable so that more people can come down, enjoy the island, and spend money to get the island on its feet again after Irma. We have visited 3 weeks every year since 1985. I don't remember fares being this high.

Are they able to take off an extra day or two on either end, to make the fares more reasonable? Even if they have to rent a room for a day or two, it might be cheaper over all.

I don't think it's the airlines responsibility to provide for the economy. As fare as pricing and more flights it all boils down to supply and demand along with how many planes the airport can handle.

My DIL and hubby bought a beautiful T/S on Aruba while on their honeymoon 6 years ago. Fast forward to today three kids later they also can't afford to go during Pres. week. $6K for R/T airfare for all, she's a school principal and not allowed to take days on the front or back end.

Presidents day is Monday February 18. School vacation times usually coincide with that week. They typically start vacationing that Saturday before and through that week.

Instead of the usual Saturday to Saturday, we've booked next year on a Wednesday to the following Friday. Airfare for 5 adults in May 19 came down to $3100 total. Thats really cheap for Chicago to SXM.
