I didn't post that very well. We paid $189. YHZ to MCO with a stop in Toronto. $205. MCO to YHZ, direct. Total for 2 round trips was around $1000. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

We booked the same deal, like the idea of not having to worry about a drive to the US to get a flight when the weather may be iffy.

Just looked at Allegiant out of Bangor and they are selling some flights one way to Orlando in April and May for $25!! Return flight is $209 for most dates but perhaps you could find a way back cheaper on Delta? Haven't checked that yet....

You're right...they are gone Last night they had dates the end of April and mid May for $25. I know I wasn't seeing things since someone on the Transportation Board spotted them too.

Guess it was one of those quick midnight booking sales I'd heard of but never seen before. Perhaps because it was Christmas Day? I've signed up for their emails but have never gotten one.

Hopefully they do it again and I get all my ducks in a row BEFORE I spot the sale!

Jetblue out of Portland is the way to go if you can get good fares. We paid $775.00 CDN for 3 return tickets from PWM to MCO in November, 2009. Air Canada from our home in Charlottetown, PEI was over $2,400.00 CDN. Even factoring in the cost to drive, eat and stay overnight in Portland ME we were still in over $1,200.00 CDN.

Jetblue's service is wonderful and Air Canada could learn a lot from them on how to run an airline. My wife feels that from now on we'll drive to Maine to catch a flight as it is so much cheaper and in many ways just as convenient as flying from Canada ( no routing through dirty old Montreal Airport).

Hope you have a great time at Disney!!!!

I was just checking out Jan 17-23 from Portland to Tampa flying AirTran and the cost was $390 US for 2 of us...approx $430 Cdn.

The same dates flying from Moncton on Continental was approx $980 Cdn

$550 difference - but you have to factor in the return drive, parking, food, gas and additional 2 days of vacation time used up.

Just to add to this Jan 17 to Jan 24 from Halifax is 836.48 CAD taxes in for 2. Still way up from the 658 cdn taxes in (for 2) observed a month ago ...

Thumbs up Air Canada

Allegiant had $20.10 fares from Bangor to Sanford, end of April - first part of May listed this morning. I was about to jump on it however they put their return fares up from $109 to $179+. After adding all their fees it wasn't worth it. We've been going back and fourth between Airtran and Jetblue out of Portland for MONTHS - that is until today.

Instead we jumped on the Air Canada sale...$338 ($449 taxes, fees incl) NON-STOP out of Halifax or MCO After we factored in gas, hotel for one night, a couple of meals out of Portland we would have only saved roughly $500 for our family of five...plus the 8 hour drive both ways. We're looking very forward to the 40 minutes instead

I've never seen such a good rate out of Halifax to MCO! Last time we flew out of Boston and saved over $2000..so it was worth it!

RainbowsMist ... I went through Portland with 2 adults 3 kids my costs for park stay and fly were 250 US (5 person room ... embassy suites), gas I use a proxy of $100 cdn each way, plus food $150US both ways total plus evening

So $600 to $700 cdn would my proxy for my costs (others could do this cheaper) ... so add on air for $250 US each and your $500 in saving is close ...

Under the right circumstance traveling from Maine is very good, but when tickets from YHZ get in that $400 to $500 range ... I opt for YHZ

In June I travel to Texas and so far Portland is my only option unless I find a flight from YHZ to DFW for $400 Taxes in.

Ted, this is really OT, but can you explain to me how to change my vacation ticker at the bottom of the page? Any help is appreciated. When I look at it in days, it looks better than 3 months.
