American / US Airways – $233: Newark – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

American has been attacking United’s fares to a few Caribbean destinations. However, we don’t really think they want people to book them as they have very bad layovers (e.g., the overnight layovers with the Antigua and St. Lucia deals we posted last week). This Punta Cana deal can be done without long layovers although availability is limited and requires you to follow our search and booking instructions explicitly to find it.

2015 availability is about $15 more.
