    Hey ladies! I haven't seen a thread on this so I apologize if there is one already. What is everyone paying or planning on paying for their flights to Jamaica (MBJ)?

    We are flying out of Chicago and I have been told to plan on spending $300-$400. Is that accurate?

    Also, for those of you that were able to negotiate a group rate, what airline was/is that with and what was/is the discount?

    Thanks for the info!!

      I've meaning to ask as well what are the flight/airline options from the Chicago area? I need to fly my photographer(Heather Parker) out from there and I'm not sure what's available, since I've read on here that Air J shut down the Chicago hub!

      Thanks in advance!

      I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

        It looks like Spirit Airlines might also fly direct?

          Oh ok-I missed that! It looks like they are pretty inexpensive. We will see what prices look like when flights come out for next May. :)

            Ok, maybe you shouldn't book on Spirit!

              My photographer is flying from Chicago and I have been following prices daily since November last year on kayak.com and $300 - $420 seem about right price. When you consider flights remember that some airlines charge for checked luggage even though Jamaica is an international destination. American & Delta don't charge for the first 2 luggage pieces but USAirways charges for luggage, $23 online or $25 if you check luggage at the airport for the first bag and $32 or 35 for the second luggage. It's something to consider when you are making your booking.

                Spirit also charges for luggage and seat assignments!

                  Interesting!! Glad I asked! I would have seen the cheap rate and booked not knowing any better.

                    Air Tran flight directly to Montego Bay however, you have to pay for your seats and checked bags! They really nickel and dime you.
