How to turn a $400 airline ticket into a $700 ticket

Airfare to St. Thomas is pretty attractive right now. Until you make yourself comfortable.

We have no status on United, but it flies these seasonal nonstops from Dulles and that’s just irresistible. And the fare is about $400 round-trip right now. Buying seats near the front of the plane, and buying our way to the front of the boarding line jacked that up a bit.

If you haven’t bought your December or January tickets yet, get going. Back-of-the-plane economy seats always sell out, and on some DC to STT flights on AA and UAL, they already are.

DC area travelers note: United has a second weekend nonstop from IAD to STT right now. One leaves at about 7:30am. The other at 8:30am.

  1. We probably won’t be coming in 2017, but we do have a trip planned for 8 Tuff Miles in 2018. Hope the United fares remain as good as they are now!
