Well our travel agent is from Itravel so to check the prices we would just go onto their website and it lists all the differnet tour operators and their prices listed from highest to lowest so when we checked we saw that Air Canada had an ever better price then what Air Transat had, even though it was down $150 from what we were quoted.
I never had to personally call Air Transat myself as my travel agent did it all for us, so I have no idea who you would need to contact.
I'm trying to think of how I could help you out with this though. I saw your wedding isn't until May. We're leaving January and the price dropped around Thanksgiving sometime and by the time it was all sorted out it was very near to, if not the start of November. So you're still more than 2/3 months out. We locked in our prices in May and they never budged once until Late September/ Early October and it was nothing significant, like $50pp.
I know it's so hard and you want a better price now because that's what you had been told the whole time, but I really think your price will drop. I don't see it happening until at least the New Year though because no one's really thinking about vacation for that time of year right now with the holidays. Once Feb/March comes around people will start thinking about getting away and I think you'll start to see the deals then
As for you getting every 21st person free, I would defiantly try to contact someone about that one. How can they offer someone else a different number!!. And it's even more bizzare because they can't say anything like oh it's the destination location because we are both going to the same resort! I would try and get them to lower that one for you!
The only reason I can think mine would be lower is that since I booked so early but it was for 2011 the packages weren't out for the year yet so maybe they assumed that the 16th person free would remain the same but then it did in fact change but since I already had my contract with them they had to honour it for me.
I hoped this helped and if you have any other questions or anything don't hesitate to ask!

Its funny too as we have every 21 person free and not 16th and we are both flying transat
Any help would be awesome
