That is really good! Congrats!

Still looking for airfare out of Boston April 11 and 21. Expensive time to fly out of MA. Any suggestions?

Has anyone tried cheapair.com (not to be confused with cheapoair.com)?

Wow ... your dates result in crazy high prices ... too bad you couldn't slide them a few days later! Ive never used cheapair, so I'm no help to your question. Just as a note, I checked BOS, PVD, MHT and PWM and yes, the prices for your dates are high!

Any problems flying out of pwm??

Looks like I found the right place to ask questions. We are a family of five from Halifax and are considering flying Portland Maine to Orlando to save $$. Are there any issues at all with Canadians flying out of Portland?? The drive doesn't bother me at all as we do that at least one or two times a year.

Also, jetblue flights right now are approx 256 per person taxes Inc. So about 1300 for5 of us. Is that good or should I wait? This is May 4th cominghome May13 as it is much cheaper than Sunday. Curious if I should wait.

Thanks!!!!
Jeanette

We flew them Xmas 2011. Portland is a very very nice airport, very quiet, clean and so pleasant! We flew dec 22, returning jan 6. Jet blue was good but our flight was delayed and delayed and delayed. I so recommend checking it before u head to airport from hotel. We couldn't as the hojo there had insanely slow net connections. As in, one bar in the room but If I went into the bathroom there was two. They brought out snacks while we waited. And gave us each a credit for future travel. The airport had no issues w Canucks flying out-your going to already be in the "system" as u checked in w customs at the border. They were actually much nicer than leaving from Halifax, it was great.

It is a good price. For us we paid 1550? Return, direct there and was on way back but four months before departure they called and we had a connection at JFK. I'd fly them again but w a new wee babe not any time soon.
