I have done many searches on this board for information but want to be sure I’m not missing anything before we make our flight reservations.
We are determining the best way to get our family of 11 to Virgin Gorda (6 adults, 5 children), weighing both convenience and price. We have decided to go through San Juan and have looked into Air Sunshine, Island Birds, and American Eagle for the flight to Tortola, then taking the ferry over to VG.
Right now Air Sunshine has by far the best price for the short leg, and their price includes the price of the ferry and the arrangements. They said they have their own boats. When my husband asked about all not fitting on the same plane, Air Sunshine said they would add another plane that left 10 minutes later. Does anyone have experience with this? It’s hard to believe they would add a second flight for two people (their planes hold 9 people).
I did see saffie11’s comments about going American all the way in case you have delays, but the American Eagle option would cost $4,000 more compared to Air Sunshine.
Any thoughts from regulars who have done this before would be appreciated!
