Hi guys....I am in the planning phase of a cruise (Carribean islands on Celebrity) departing from Fort Lauderdale. I want to combine my 2 loves (NY and cruising) so I am planning on cashing in frequent flyer miles (or take the train if I don't get tickets) from my hometown of Montreal to NY. I then want to fly from NY to Fort Lauderdale.
I am planning on leaving NY on August 14th. I prefer to spend the night in Fort Lauderdale to be ready for the cruise at the beginning of the afternoon. Some people fly in on the same day but I am too anxious a person to do that!
The problem is that I am used to flying with Air Canada and have not taken US owned airlines regularly.
The best prices I got back were around 350$ (including luggage) on Delta and 360$ on Jet Blue. Since I can't leave early in the morning of August 22nd, the price is a little bit higher.
Do you know of other "discount" airlines that fly the NY-Fort Lauderdale route? There is Spirit also but they now charge for carry-ons! The price is 280$ but you have to pay for carry-on and checked baggage.
Thanks to anyone who can help me with my little problem! It would be less complicated to fly from Montreal to Fort Lauderdale but I would not get to spend time in NY:)
