American Airlines' Bolivia Sale
American Airlines (tel. 800/433-7300; www.aa.com) is having a sale on winter travel to Santa Cruz, Bolivia from Miami, New York, and D.C. How does it compare to what the other guys are charging? We checked Miami to Santa Cruz for January 10 through 17 and found $600 round-trip, nonstop on American, and $749 round-trip on TACA. And that's with three, count Â?em, three plane changes! So unless you're willing to pay extra for the joy of multiple layovers, American is the obvious choice. And in every other case we checked, American's fares came out on top.
Again, the following are all round-trip and include taxes:
- Miami to Santa Cruz, Bolivia $600
- New York to Santa Cruz, Bolivia $732
- Washington D.C. to Santa Cruz, Bolivia $752
