Last week, I urged you to book airline tickets for fall 2008 and 2009. I figured the American Airlines announcement of layoffs and service reductions can only mean trouble for VI-bound visitors. The number of AA flights to Puerto Rico is being cut in half, and there are undoubtedly cutbacks coming for St. Thomas service.
That e-mail header above is proof the VI’s will be hurt.
Following my own advice, I booked for next February, last week. Within 10 days, I got the e-mail saying my return trip would now get me home two hours later than originally planned. The connection also will not be through San Juan, but rather Miami.
Frankly, I expect more schedule changes before we take off in seven months.
