Delta started a second flight from JFK to STI. Leaves @ 9PM returns @ 2am.

Delta is also building a new terminal @ JFK and in a news article they stated they want to focus their attention on latin america specially the Dominican market from NY.

Watch out JetBlue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it will Frank. That's why STI is cheaper and POP is way too expensive, competition.

I do not think it's the case from PHL. It used to be but I don't see it now. Not much difference between STI or POP.

If the price difference between POP and STI is not more than $200 US for a round trip, it is a moot point.

Yes Delta is aggressively marketing now. In all the online sites their route is coming as first choice. I also saw fliers with the travel agents here. I had booked ticket for the coming week to YYZ for 643 dollars but after the exchange rate difference it costs me 675 dollars.

Is that 25 USD for the first checked bag is true? Because I saw contradicting information in my ticket. At the link they gave it was mentioned first checked bag is free for US/Canada and DR and at another place they had mentioned no free bag. I contacted their customer support and are not telling exactly yes or no?

Yes, it offered me to pay inline ahead of time.............$25 for the 1st and $35 for 2nd.

I usually go thru EWR on CO and get free but not this time.

Its the highest I've ever paid - $375 one way.
Thats my normal R/T ticket..............OUCH!!!!!!!!1

My daughter has a EWR/SDQ the weekend after Easter and it was $476... I thought that was big.
It was $750 for the Saturday flight and $476 for the Sunday one..... crazy

I only looked for the dates I was interested in - April-May. Summer fares usually are more expensive.

Depends on more to me. Agree at $200 when one traveller and arriving/departing during times allowing for daylight taxi travel to/from Cabarete. With 2 people and up that can make it worth it. However the night arrivals and departures at STI are just not a good idea with DR road realities. And there is a hassle factor I apply, so usually POP is best choice.

Delta used to fly out of POP until about a year ago. I really wish they would do so again!! Competition! And they had a flight to ATL (which is their hub) so could connect well with other than east coast destinations.

JB use to have low hares to Santiago. I try to avoid connecting in NYC any time that I can. But yes more flights are needed from other carriers, seems like JB is flying the most to Santiago.
