Was the $1K with Air Jamica? Or did you try them? That does seem somewhat expensive for the end of April to me.

It is Easter week / spring break week.

Register with travelocity and they'll notify you of price drops in the airfare. They probably won't start those until January or so.

to Diane-

I was looking to travel from NYC down to Caribbean beginning of May and the airfares are crazy close to $800 on American. I'm hoping they go down. I avoided the Easter week recess that many schools have.

Way too early, guys.
Anyone booking this far in advance will get mediocre prices at best.

I agree with Kay.
The airlines wait to sell as many tickets to whomever will pay the high prices in advence (not me , and then release their fare sales later.
Although it can be tough on the nerves to wait, I've never been disappointed except for one year when I wanted to go to Mexico at Christmas.
I go to the Caribbean every April and wait to get the best fares until 6 weeks - or less - before I leave.

We went last December and paid $1100 from St. Louis. We connected in San Juan (on American). It's a loooong flight. But, we loved St. Lucia.
