So we're still trying to figure out if a trip to Puerto Rico is in the cards to replace Michael's aging wardrobe. I was very excited to read about the Cape Air offering a special from Nevis to San Juan for $199.50US, but then started factoring in the ferry trip/water taxi to Nevis (R/T - $40) and a land taxi to the airport (R/T - $40) and ended up being $20 cheaper than American Airlines (from St. Kitts). I think we'd be willing to pay the extra $20 for less hassle.
LIAT = $460.70, American Airlines = $300.30, and Cape Air = $199.50 (a good deal if you're already in Nevis).
What I was really surprised about though was the difference in fees between everybody. I don't know if that's the advantage of leaving from Nevis vs. St. Kitts or what. LIAT adding almost $18/each way to the ticket for a fuel surcharge doesn't help its cause.
LIAT = $138.70 / AA = $92.30 (who does a crappy job of telling you what they are) / Cape Air = $49.50. The only difference was that Cape Air used Nevis and the other 2 used St. Kitts.
Does that make sense? By the time you throw in a place to stay (about $75/night for 2 nights) and a rental car (with insurance), we've spent over $500 for just one person and haven't even shopped yet. It's not that we don't have the $, it's that something stupid like this isn't what we want to spend it on (and no we don't need another vacation in Puerto Rico). So we continue to hem and haw and pretend all those pulls, stains, and holes in Michael's clothes aren't noticeable (thank you folks for not mentioning it).
HEE HEE HEE HEE HEE HEE HEE HEE
I'm sorry, but these are hysterical (found at Texts from Hillary Clinton):
