Rising Airfares To Nevis

Jump to last reply

Having recently booked an anniversary vacation to beautiful Nevis for this October, I've been checking the American Airlines website daily to try and get a good deal on airfares for our dates (AA is the only airline that flys direct from Washington, DC to Nevis). Since I've been checking, the fares have increased from $539 roundtrip late last month to the current $689. By way of comparison, AA's fare prices for October 2005 were about $490 for the same travel days.

I can't imagine that the plane is already filled for October 2006 so I suppose part of this increase is due to higher fuel prices (whenever it seems they can't possibly go any higher, they do) and the rest is because of the lack of competition flying to Nevis (a monopoly can charge monopoly prices). Ah well, I'll keep checking and hoping that what goes up will also come down (at least a little anyway).
