This does not meet our 6 cents per mile criterion. Here’s why we are posting it – 1) it is a great Winter getaway 2) the Caribbean outside of St. Juan rarely goes below $300 from New York. 3) it is nonstop and it is an easy getaway. 4) the only time we posted a deal to St. Maarten from NY was in May, 2012 when US Airways had it for $244 with a connection.
Update 11/21/2013 @ 12:35PM Eastern – fare gone.
