Flight Dilemma

Recommended Posts

I need some help in about deciding when to book my flight to Montego Bay from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for my wedding in April of this year. I recently saw a seat sale for about $550 (taxes in). Now I am wondering if this is as good as it will get and I missed it. doh.gif

 

There are US flights that are at this price right now as well, but not sure if I should grab it since of all the new security measures put in place (i.e. no carry ons). I was hoping to bring my wedding dress on board the plane.

 

If anyone has any thoughts or advice, I would appreciate it.

Are you booking flights only or a full all inclusive package? I think from Canada it's more economical to book a package rate than a flight/hotel separately.

 

I got an early booking rate on my AI package of about $240 off the regular price and I haven't seen that deal again, but I suppose there's always the possibility of last minute options.

I am wondering the same thing as amygirl1169. Are you booking the hotel and flights separate. We went through a travel agent and booked our resort and flights as a package really early and got our week for an excellent price, about $2000 cheaper because the resort just went through reno's to upgrade and it was so early.

Good luck.

hey. my mom just left for jamaica in december from Ottawa as well. She got a fare for almost the same price. Ottawa-Toronto-MBJ (air canada).

Word of advice: don't fly through the states when going to jamaica. too much of a hassle. 2 custom checks and more hassle. I fly from Toronto ( i live here).

i just checked Westjet:$570 including tax april 13-22 , Air canada: $600+, US airways (throught Philadelphia, USA): $531 after tax.

 

*flight deals: sign up for westjet's deals... they email me all the time when there's deals. there was a sale from Ottawa to MBJ a few weeks ago for $406 after tax.... i emailed all my friends and family when i saw that! LOL.

* most flight deals come out on wednesdays.. keep your eyes open.

*keep in mind, Easter falls early April.. so flights might be more pricy. what are your exact dates?

 

Good luck.

I thought they lifted the carry on restrictions? I was worried also, but I was talking about it with friends tonight any they seem to think it's not applicable any more. Please let me know if you've heard otherwise!!

Thanks for all the responses! I am booking the accommodations and air fare separately. I already put down a deposit for Sandals Dunn's River (to secure the wedding date) and the 2nd week we are spending in Sandals Whitehouse.

 

I guess I will just continue to keep an eye out for airfare deals for Canadian flights! At this point, I think it may be too much trouble to switch the dates since (1) fiance already got his wedding band inscribed with the wedding date (this probably was not the greatest idea since things can come up that is not within our control such as an epidemic!) (2) my travel agent was saying how the prices have gone up for the rooms so switching any dates may increase the prices

you should try to find a direct flight too, it's totally worth it!

our package rate is about the same as if we did it sep, our honeymoon we are booking the hotel sep cause it's way cheaper that way. weird!

    • Watches as a gift can never go wrong. Couple necklaces, or special jewelry can also be a great choice. 
    • As a wedding gift, necklaces are a good choice.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
