This is the first time we have flown American Airlines in many years. This was because the airline we usually fly does not fly to Curacao. We usually fly to Aruba and then to Curacao on a local airlines. We were not going to Aruba - was there in November and were in Florida so we needed an airline that flew direct to Curacao. The flight was on time, took under 3 hours, but was pricey due to luggage fees, seat selection, both ways. I will fly American again because we love going to Curacao. We will look at other ways to save when we fly American again such as carry on luggage - not checked luggage, Do not select seats before hand.
