    Default WOAH!! No Nonstop from MIA to POP,STI,or SDQ?

    Hola mi gente! Ok, Im in the middle of planning my 2nd trip to the DR when I was totally thrown back by the airline prices and the absence of non stop flights from MCO or MIA to the DR. Last year my flight cost of my trip was less than $300, this year the flights are like starting @ like $1400 and up alone with out hotel etc. Am I missing something here? Does anyone know when or why this is happening? This is really bad because now Ill probably have to stay at a lower priced resort and wont be able to get all the gifts I had planned for mi princessa! This will break her poor little heart for there were so many things that she needs me to bring. (joke...the truth is I probably wont come with those prices...)

    Were you using Expedia, Orbitz or Hotwire to search? None of those list AA flights any more. To my knowledge, AA still has quite a few flights from MIA to all Dominican destinations. The prices have gone up, but not as much as what you posted. Try aa.com.

    Keep in mind; the Dominican taxes are $140.00. When you account for this many of flights are'nt bad at all .

    Whew! Crisis averted! Thanks for all who replied. I was using expedia and like a few of you said, no American Airline option when booking with expedia. So I guess the beat goes on after all! Hey thanks again

    AA can only compete with Jet Blue and Spirit because of two things: Bags and times.
    To travel on Spirit you leave Santiago at 3:30 in the morning and arrive at 5:30 in FLL. You leave FLL at 11:59 p.m. (so they say) and arrive at 2:20 in the morning in STI....Not all travellers will do this. Plus they charge for bags and carry ons. No matter, they are still hundreds cheaper than AA...

    HB-> cheapskate
