nicschick Posted September 25, 2006 #1 Share Posted September 25, 2006 Here's my scenario (I hope it's not terribly confusing), we're taking a Southern Caribbean cruise out of San Juan :) and I am trying to get the best rate on airfare (of course). I'm lookin at booking Spirit direct to San Juan out of Orlando. They have a flight that leaves at 7:25pm the night before we depart for our cruise. They have an earlier flight but my goal is to avoid coming to Orlando the day before and staying in a hotel (to me defeats the purpose of trying to save on the airfare, just goes to the hotel instead) and would rather spend the money in staying in San Juan. So my questions comes...now I have to get to Orlando and would like to fly in the same day but on Southwest, they so far have the best rates. I know this is possible with the right amount of time, but what is that amount of time? Say my flight from TUL to MCO arrives at 4:10pm, that gives me 3 hours 15 minutes (of course assuming everything is on schedule). Do this, is it correct that I will have enough time to claim my baggage, then re-check them with Southwest (could do online checkin)? I would do a similar thing on the return trip, but would have closer to 4 hours and 35 minutes, I'll have to reclaim my luggage anyway when we go through customs and then check-in with Southwest. Doing it this way will save $300-400, which would pay for 2 nights stay in San Juan. Who thinks this is very possible, any other concerns or comments are appreciated.
