American Rebooks Flights

Oh, You’ve Been Rebooked on American, Too?

Yep, it’s happening to almost all of us who have booked our tickets on American for the wedding. We’ve been rebooked against our will.

Some people have had their flights changed with their final destination as Miami or Nassau. This simply won’t work. There are no ferries that go as far as Nassau or Miami. You have to fly to Marsh Harbour (unless you have a boat and want to brave the ocean waters for a few hours).

So if this ends up happening to you, here are some things to consider when figuring out what to do next:

from the short amount of research I’ve done, it looks like a lot of the flights going through Miami now have long overnight layovers either in Miami or Nassau.

»  Consider going through Fort Lauderdale. From that same short research I did, I found there to be more direct flights from Ft. Lauderdale to Marsh Harbour, leaving FLL and arriving at MHH at reasonable times.

»  Consider going through Nassau. It looks like a lot of flights going through Nassau also have an overnight layover, but at least you’re in Nassau!

»  Just an idea: book your tickets separately. DFW – FLL round trip. Then FLL – MHH round trip.

»  Fly Bahamian. Besides all the major US airlines, look into major Bahamian airlines Bahamas Air and Sky Bahamas. You can book Bahamas Air through Travelocity and Orbitz, but Sky Bahamas is only through their website. Or…a new one to try…Silver Airlines.

Please let us know if you have any questions; we’re happy to help!
