Sample flights

The following deals are for basic economy seats on American Airlines which includes a standard seat and free carry-on. A checked bag, seat selection and priority boarding are available for additional fees.

One of the cheapest deals we found was from Washington D.C. (DCA) to Port of Spain (POS) with a stop in Miami (MIA) at $210 round-trip. There were many options at this price throughout the end of January and February.

We found a steal in mid-March from San Francisco (SFO) to Port of Spain (POS). The options are long trips with two stops, but at $211 round-trip it might be worth the long journey.
