Just purchased tickets today for a friend of mine going to Nevis for the Fishing Tournament. Delta had fares (via Orbitz)to Nevis from Detroit for $477.00 return….excluding taxes. :D
The flight is a pretty decent flight too, despite going through San Juan. Leaves Detroit at 6:30 am and gets into Nevis at 5:20 pm.
Flight goes from Detroit, to Atlanta, to San Juan, to Nevis. While this may sound like a pain for you people who enjoy USAIR direct, it is great for Detroit passengers.
Three weeks or so ago, the best fares were around $700.00, and Delta was not even listed. They must be trying to get a early foothold into Nevis. All of the other carriers had also followed suit, with similar pricing.
