Just got email that Jet Blue is expanding schedule to 10/26 on Sunday 2/3.
But if you want to do a package deal with them you can do so on2/2, probably after 12 noon

As soon as JB posted the new schedule around 12:00 PM yesterday (Feb 03), we were able to book our tickets on JB for our trip in September. DW had a hard time booking the tickets online - looks like their site was experiencing
technical issues. After several tries where she had to keep re-entering info, she called JB and they were able to book our tickets & didn't charge the $25 fee since they acknowledged that there were problems with the online booking. We had enough JB points to cover both tickets. The price was around $500 roundtrip per person. DW also booked our 3-week car rental with Tropic. Always good to get this stuff out of the way early. Also happy that DW handles it.

Does anyone know the 'best' time to book flights?

Do you book early to get a good rate or wait til you get closer?

Thanks,

I always book as soon as flights become available IMO that is when the fares are the lowest, with a few exceptions.

Agree - we've been doing the same & from our experience, we usually see the fares go up. Also, the JB flights we take in September have been totally packed to & from Aruba. If you book early, you select your seats early.
