  1. Many of friends/coworkers would love to visit st lucia, but since 2011 ticket prices are going up. If flights are cheaper more visitors would visit st Lucia. Look at Barbados a couple can book airfare and hotel for $1000.00. For st Lucia that is impossible. American Airlines has no competition so hence the reason for a flight to cost you $827-950 per person. Waiting for a flight to come out of Fort Lauderdale, their flights are normally cheaper.
