Cheap flights from Austin (AUS) to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) are being offered by US Airways / American. Airfare is $199 for round-trip flights with a short layover; usually in Charlotte (CLT). FYI: Miami (MIA) is only 25 minutes by car, so if you would rather be there instead of Fort Lauderdale it’s relatively easy to do that.

A few of you have asked me how to avoid the long Miami stopovers on the American Airlines Caribbean airfare sale. During the start of the sale, there wasn’t a discount fare basis that would route around it for a few of these destinations, but now there’s one that will route via Charlotte (CLT) and another that routes through Miami (MIA). It is now possible to avoid the overnight stopovers in Miami from Houston to Punta Cana, Grand Cayman, Antigua, St. Lucia and Montego Bay.

[07/31/2014 @ 12:00 PM] Update: It is now currently possible to avoid overnight stopovers in Miami for St. Lucia.
[08/01/2014 @ 4:44 PM] It appears that American Airlines and US Airways have ended their sale. Prices have increased to all destinations listed in this post by about $150.

I noticed that the price on Orbitz for the Houston (IAH) to Grand Cayman (GCM) flight was a bit higher than the flight being offered on American Airlines. I believe that this would make for a valid claim on Orbitz’s “Best price Guarantee”.

What this means is that you should be eligible for a credit of $50 to $200 dollars if you book your flight on Orbitz, and then provide a link to the same flight, same booking class, and dates being offered elsewhere for $5 or more cheaper.

Update: I don’t think Orbitz will honor this. From what I can tell, the reason why the price is $7 higher on Orbitz than American Airlines is that Orbitz charges a fee for mixed airline itineraries. It also explains why this fare isn’t bookable on American Airlines’ website without some massaging via Google Flights.
