    My plane was probably 95% Dominicans. Wasn’t cheap either, not half fare, economy was about $650, business $720 rt.

    Someone told me about the Hopper app. If I would have flown midweek EWR-SDQ it was $267 rt.

    Problem is I’m 2 hours away and drivers work. Uber was almost $200 so we just bit the bullet.

    It was Winter break for schools in the US and Europe. Much more affordable to fly in February than Spring break (that is if you are not bothered by Semana Santa Madness). NYC-SDQ was a little under $400 RT. I am also seeing more and more Europeans connecting into the US to go down to DR.

    If you are in Toronto or Montreal there are flights to POP. If you are anywhere else in the country, you have to get thyself to one of those two cities.

    Both Westjet and Air Canada operate their own tour company that makes use of their own planes (obviously). I sometimes feel a little hard done by paying full airfare to sit on the same plane as a family with a decibel challenging toddler who booked their entire one week stay (per person) for what I paid just for that flight. However, it is what it is.

    The flights to POP are well populated because of the limited choice people have and because empty seats are discounted sometimes heavily in the days before departure for package tourists doing last minutes deals.

    Any Canadian trying to go home from POP pretty much as to choose one of those two airlines. Full planes make for a better business position but it really doesn't serve the traveling public as well as more robust competition would. Competition will not return until the cost to land at POP is the same as in PUJ.
