    Default Any rumors of airlines flying from the US to AZS?

    Since Jetblue is no longer going to fly to AZS, it has become very expensive and slow to fly from NYC to AZS.

    Has anyone heard any rumors about another airline coming in to fill the gap?

    Las Terrenas had become my default vacation. Just when I get comfortable, Jetblue pulls out. Sigh.

    It's not quick nor inexpensive but if you are adamant about flying into AZS as I am you may need to look at flying into Toronto, Montreal or Halifax and then grabbing a Air Canada or West Jet flight to AZS. I was talking to a guy from NY that flew Jet Blue and I can tell you the Canadian options are pricey comparitively.
    The strong US dollar will play in your favour though booking a CDN flight.

    Good luck!!

    When I took the JetBlue flight in early March I asked the flight attendent if there was a chance that they would offer this route again. He said it may be offered again seasonally. Which could be next year during high season. This doesn't solve your problem now. The cheapest alternative is to fly into Santo Domingo and rent a car and drive to LT. Delta is offering a round trip for under $400us.

    I was wondering why JB wasn't showing flights anymore between JFK & AZS. I hope they return it during high season. I've taken this flight about 4 times in the last 3 yrs and its perfect + very inexpensive. And the flights seemed mostly full, so I can't see it as not cost effective for them. So I guess its SDQ & driving....

    everyone here cites the low prices - JFK/AZS

    that's exactly the problem..... low prices are need to fill the plane.
    JB can do better elsewhere.

    I booked Xmas over T'Giving... about $1700 R/T.... Dec23 to Jan 2 0r 3 ----Prime time
    2 weeks before Xmas that flight was 1/2 that price , trying to fill the plane.

    I got a refund of $850.... credit to future flights

    Apologies to those who heard this before

    Just shows to go you how fickle airline prices can be

    Yes I remember that time period being very $. I changed my time to late Jan. '16 & it was about $350. R/T, but sadly Mother Nature dumped snow that day & flight was cancelled! But received refund.

    I need LT every year, so see you folks next month via SDQ....

    My daughter works in NYC... so that's my problem... always a $$$ ticket.
    The UK daughter pays less.... True !!

    I posted the original flight cancellation notice from an internal memo a pilot gave me.
    His brother has a house in Cabrera... we know it's him at the wheel when we fly over Cabrera (Casa Kimball & Orchid bay are below)
    Then we fly the coastline to el catey..... great scenery

    It's the $$ per seat that is their beef..... too low

    It will not help the OP a lot but it appears Air Canada has added a weekly flight (Thursday) out of Ottawa (YOW) to AZS for the winter of 2017.
    This is fantastic news for me as I will no longer have to connect through Montreal or Toronto.
    Also it is a 6 AM departure so I will be on the beach by noon
