    I recommend if you have a AAA near you that you look into membership and consult with their travel planners. I'm a devout Kayak.com user, but our AAA agent was able to find flights that were $200 cheaper PER PERSON for us. They're also able to work through tour operators that might get you group discounts if over 10 rooms, as well as letting the hotel know you're all together. Membership is usually around $50, but has a host of other benefits and discounts, plus eases the strain on you to help everyone figure out their travel. They'll do everything!

    I can't say enough about how great our experience has been with our AAA agent Linda!

    We also have several people flying out of Philly, thanks to the forum for the tip on BWI and Newark.

    As for the flights from the West Coast, it gets complicated because the earliest they could leave would be around 6am, putting them into the East Coast by about 3pm, and flights to DR don't usually leave that late. You might get lucky, but sometimes the extra night and cheaper airfare work out. We're seeing 19 and 26 hour flights even from the East Coast (totally crazy).

      When I went there on vacation, I went out of JFK in New York, had a brief layover in Atlanta, and was in Punta Cana by 2 pm. It was on Delta. I don't know if that helps at all!
