I don't understand!!!! My future brother-in-law lives in Chicago and looked up flights for our wedding; it's only going to cost him $500 round trip! Where as from Kansas City; we're looking at paying upwards of $900-1000? I even looked into flying to Chicago and then booking a seperate trip from Chicago to the DR!? In the end to fly to Chicago and then the DR would still be around $800!? Should I just keep watching the flight prices?? Has anyone booked theirs yet?

I am having the same problem. Getting marrired in December in Punta Cana and I booked in January and got first class tickets for under 600 from Newark, NJ. Now the prices are over 600 for regular flights and alot of my guests still haven't booked. I was able to get a 5% discount from American Airlines, but I had no luck with any other airlines. Any one else have suggestions. I found that the group rate deal with continental didn't actually lock in the rate, so I would just be careful when you sign a contract with them. They said it is just the average price that all your guests will pay that they guarantee you, so they block the seats but the price is not discounted. I was shocked when I found this out...so be careful that you speak to an agent when you do the contract and ask all those questions, I didn't want to lock in an amount only to find out that all of my guests may pay 900...

For everyone traveling to DR just be aware that when you see prices listed online you need to add about $250 per couple in taxes to the cost. DR is one of, if not the most, expensive islands to fly to due to the heafty taxes.

I still can't find the Airtran flights, but jet blue looks to be about the same prices as Continental.
