That JetBlue flight from FLL into STI is money if you don’t mind the overnight flight.  I’m a vet with reliable connections and transport down there so I’ve never worried about it.  I’m saving hundreds and a shit ton of time by not having to drive that extra few miles south to MIA although the new brightline service really makes MIA more appealing again.

I booked first class in American for my September trip for about $620 R/T.  MIA to STI ( decent flight times) and then POP to MIA .  That’s a steal IMHO

Anyone flying from Toronto to POP August  - September?   Booked a flight in July for September paid 570 cad approx 430 usd.  Curious to see how much others are paying.

Not Toronto but Montreal in November ... paid 515$ on Air Transat ... direct flight to pop.
There is not much choice from yul to pop: Air Transat direct flight, Sunwing direct flight but fckn expensive and Westjet with a 1h layover in Toronto but usually more expensive than Transat. The westjet flight is good because you leave very early from Montreal but you arrive in pop around 1h30pm. Transat has the best price usually but landing is around 7h30pm ... Sunwing is the most expensive but direct and lands around 2pm in pop.

Learn the airline points game...  If you reallocated a fraction of the time spent on this site to reading points blogs, you would save a fortune...   I'm sitting on 80K avios, which guarantees almost 6 $150 flights from MIA to POP....  100K southwest which guarantees 10 $150 flights from TPA to PUJ...  etc etc etc....  This isn't just a Florida thing, I've taken advantage of points to RD in northern US...  and you don't need to fly to accumulate points...

It's unreal how everyone bitches about $25 taxi rides, "holding the line" with chicas, and pennies on the exchange rate....  yet they're amost all overpaying by several hundred on flights with no lounge access or other perks....

Preach!!! I accumulate travel points with my credit cards (Chase mostly) and transfer them to my BA account to book $125-$150 round trip tickets from MIA POP MIA. I've done this about 10 or so times for DR and a couple of other times for other places of travel.

The biggest problem I could see for some people is it really depends on if award travel is available for the times that you want to go. Don't expect a bevvy of award tickets available during peak travel season, but it is possible. If you can be flexible with your schedule it can really work in your favor. I've scored a couple of these tickets for last minute trips to POP as well (<72 hours)....price of the award ticket is still $125-$150 round trip.

Touching down at 130pm for 515 is a good look.  I prefer touching ground before 4pm or I feel I'm missing out on a day.  I booked November WestJet direct flight for 470 (lowest paid since flying out to POP) touchdown at 230pm.  Best experience with WestJet found Sunwing more expensive and was on 3 hour delay in July. 

Question are the strip clubs still live in Montreal?   I didn't get to any my last road trip last year but the last time I did get to check them out had a good time.

@2up you misread my reply ... the Transat flight lands at 8h45pm .. I only took that one because it was cheaper and I don't mind since originally, It was supposed to be a saturday to saturday 7 days trip ... this one was cheaper and leaves on friday so ... 1 bonus day for me lol
and yes the strip club scene is well alive in Montreal.
