The SP Daily said, today, that the Tourist Board will do a deal with American for some reduced cost tickets soon. Didn't say from where (Dallas?) but did say the flights would be during mid-week. If this really happens I hope they will not "ALL" leave Dallas at 06:00 AM on Tuesday and require a return on Thursday at 11:30 PM, much like Continental has done. This will do nothing for us out-of-staters. Jamaca plans to subsidize American $1.4M in 2009, just to keep flights to Kingston.
I'll be happy to discuss my avatar with anyone who knows what it is.

I actually like the morning flights out of Houston on Continental. I fly the redeye out of vegas which leaves at 1am and gets in at 6am, then catch the 9am to Belize. Gets me to the island by noonish, just in time for lunch at waruguma's. And my impromptu trip in may is only $400 round trip... best rate I've had from vegas yet.
I just checked just for kicks for a trip to Belize from Houston IAH in June and I saw flights for $170 + 94 tax = $264 total on Continental and Taca. Several options available for times. It looks good. Wish I had the money to go again. I hope these prices stay until next year.
FYI - for those who can.

You have to check the airline sites daily (or several times a day) and get signed up on some of their airfare watch programs where they email you if a flight you are watching comes within your desired price range. Sites like airfarewatchdog.com kayak.com and such
