                Please keep in mind that while this is exciting news- please be cautious! Airtran ( and others like it- Spirit, Jetblue Ect ) do not code share. Plus, often they are only running flights to these destinations once a day or every other day. So what's the big deal?

                If the flights are cancelled, or run into a mechanical issue and you do not make it to the destination in time -you may not be able to get legally married! Or, if your guests book on these flights and run into these issues they will likely miss your wedding!Of course if you put in a few days wiggle room then you won't have to sweat it out!

                Without codesharing there are extremely limited options on what these airlines will do to get you to the destination on time- they will not care ( unless your lucky!) that you will not be able to get married. There obligation is to get you to the destination on the next available flight- that could be days later if the next flights are full !

                I'm certainly not trying to be a party pooper- just wanted keep from any future heartbreak! The good news is these will be great at possibly keeping the prices down as more seats will be available and this will be great for site visits and vacations!

                      Thanks for the info! Does Air Jamiaca "code share"? Right now it seems like they have the only non-stop flight out of Chicago and is probably the airline we will end up using.
