    Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Especially from Western Canada? I thought choosing the resort would be tough but now my TA has said most suppliers have stopped their charters early and aren't flying over Easter - except one. We really wanted to get in on a few perks (eg. 11 person flies free or 1 child free) but no go with this supplier. Any advice or similar experiences? Being a teacher, this is the best time for me to travel. Signature, Transat and Sunquest are all NOT flying over Easter

      We sort of ran into this problem last summer. Our wedding was over Easter this year. Originally we and our guests had booked our AI with Signature last July. In October, Signature dropped all its Canadian flights to Jamaica. Our TA fixed everything and just re-booked us all with Sunquest. Sunquest had originally been more expensive than Signature, but they honoured the price Signature had given us. No harm, no foul and I didnt have to lift a finger. Hope things work out okay for you and yours. We also live in Ontario and flew out of Pearson.

        Thanks for you reply and congratulations! Sunquest, Signature and Transat are all stopping their flights out of Regina at the end of Feb 2010. Even my TA was surprised. Sunwing is the only charter flying out and the flights are very reasonable....just no perks.....looks like that's what we'll do.
