American Airlines has “basic economy” round-trip flights from Houston (IAH/HOU) to Grand Cayman, Aruba, Antigua, or Providenciales (GCM/AUA/ANU/PLS) starting at $331 with a connection. $128/$203 each-way. Flights September to June. Availability varies greatly depending on the destination, see example dates. Some weekends available. Holiday Blackouts apply. Origin/Destination reversible. Stick to the example dates provided to avoid dates with long connection times.

Note: “Regular Economy” fare is available for +$50 more.

Note: “Basic Economy” fares do not include a free carry-on bag. Only a small personal item, like a Jansport City Scout backpack is free. Checked bags cost +$25 each-way. Seats are randomly assigned prior to boarding.

Note: I’m currently using the Jansport Right Pack as my “personal item” when I fly in “basic economy”. Which is slightly more than expensive than the Jansport City Scout because its fabric is Cordura instead of Polyester. Both have the same dimensions which are: 18″ x 13″ x 8.5″. There is half-an-inch of extra depth than what is officially allowed by AA, but it has never been a problem for me. The bag has a large main compartment, which makes it ideal for stuffing as much as you can into the limited amount of space.

Note: Be sure to check BOTH “IAH” and “HOU” for availability.

Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on Tripadvisor to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal. Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability.

I was able to pull this up on Priceline. Screenshot taken when this post was initially created. See timestamps at the top of this post.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
