    Even when I was Chairman's with US Air, I seldom got communications on flight changes. I've been "Preferred" status now for 8 years or so.

    JetBlue just notified me of a schedule change from JFK to SXM. Never had that before.
    Always planning my next trip.

    I just discovered another flight change that made for an illegal connection with Winair in SXM. Thankfully, Winair corrected the mistake with just a phone call.

    US Air just made minor changes to their flight schedules RIC to SXM in January and February. For tight connections, these minor changes can be problematic.

    That happened to us too! We had a flight change with Winair also. They put us at the end of the day ( 5:30 pm!) we were to go out at 3:15 p, but that would leave us only 30 minutes from arriving SXM from US AIRways. Anyway, all the earlier flights from 4:15 pm + were sold out by the time we were informed. It's a hard place to get to!

    Korcutt- if you have about 2 hours in SXM try the renamed Executive Lounge- at the opposite end from the Winair gate- it's $20 and has free wifi, snacks, drinks and comfortable chairs.

    Check in with Winair when you arrive in SXM, and there's a good chance they'll put you on an earlier flight.

    Tim, has you ever used Turbe car rental? I usually use Avis but with our villa we get a 15% discount if we use Turbe? Thanks Keith

    I've never used Turbe for personal reasons. I use Gumbs exclusively, for what it's worth. Odile Gumbs takes good care of me.

    We are like Phil and always book our Win Air two hours after arriving. Without fail, we have always gotten on an earlier flight. Sometimes we have to wait 15 minutes for our luggage, which has arrived on the next flight.
    I swear, I am not sure Win Air keeps track as to who is on which flight.
    Thanks for the heads up. We will regularly check on line to make sure Win Air is not up to their usual tricks.

    I have also found Flightaware to be extremely helpful on recent trips, especially for the day before and day of travel http://flightaware.com
    It has a smartphone app, on which you can set flight alerts (also sends you gate changes), check airport status, check inbound flights, etc.

    I too received an email from Winair yesterday changing our flights for November. But appears to be within 20 minutes or so of our original flights so no biggie.

    My monthly check of our January and February St. Barth flight reservations uncovered some minor changes in our Winair flights both coming and going. The changes did not warrant my contacting Winair, so I just accepted them. I'll repeat my advice in the opening post of this thread - ​CHECK YOUR RESERVATIONS REGULARLY!

    Wow, we just had a bit of a scare! Rob was in his AA account to check a flight he has booked for an upcoming business trip and suddenly asks me why I booked our November flight to SXM for a 9 PM arrival time?? WHAAAAAT? AA changed our flight that was originally scheduled to leave YYZ at 6:30 am and arrive on SXM at 3:10 pm - we were now leaving YYZ at 11:30 am and arriving on SXM at 9 pm! Rob didn't remember receiving anything from AA to advise us of this change so thank goodness he just happened to have checked on another flight.

    Made a call to AA and we're now on a US Airways flight arriving on SXM at 2:36 pm. Seats were scarce so that could have been a disaster if we didn't catch the change as early as we did.

    So another shout out to CHECK YOUR RESERVATIONS!!

    Another tip for tracking changes is to turn on notifications for the reservation and use the app for notifications on your mobile devices. This from my Apple Watch

    What app is that? The American Airlines app or the Apple Wallet thing?

    I've never used the wallet thing for anything. Don't even know what it is, does or purpose!! :nightmare:

    Both. The wallet holds boarding passes, movie tickets, affinity cards and the like. The AA app (top) give gate and time changes. When you near the day of departure the boarding pass shows on the lock screen and can be accessed without unlocking.

    Also, Apple Pay cards are stored there. Just paid at The Container Store with Apple Pay.
