The new US Airways Flight 1000 from Washington Reagan National to St. Thomas is about as close to a nonstop flight from National as you can get.
You have to be an early riser. Flight 1000 leaves DCA at 5:45 a.m., and makes a 45 minute layover in Charlotte without Washington passengers getting off the plane.
Total flight time: about 5 hours and, even with the one hour time difference right now, that still gets you to St. John in time for a late lunch.
The only true nonstop Washington to St. Thomas flight is seasonal, but operating right now: United Flight 1443 that leaves Dulles at 8:30 a.m. and also gets you there in time for lunch.
Where do you fly from…and what’s your flight like?
