I would not recommend flying Frontier. Did it once, never again. They really have a well deserved, horrible reputation. Pay a little more and you won't regret it, it's not a long flight anyway.

Reading of the corruption of the P.R. utility company reminded me of living in Hawaii. There's just something about islands that seems to almost create this sort of thing. Of course, Tx is the biggest state in the U.S, and has the worst utility structure on earth, so it isn't just an island thing. It's basically a lottery in Tx/ w/ a dealer's flush of many, many utility companies, all competing for the title of Biggest Thieves in Texas. They do everything big there.

On the Hawaiian islands, you had to deal w/ Heco/HELCO, and one of the first hits you will get on a google search is "why is my electric bill so high in Hawaii?" We trusted them about as far as we could throw them when we lived on the Big Island. They did usually manage to keep the lights on though. Since I foresee a move to Puerto Rico at the end of the year, I look forward to cussing out yet another power company. Losing the electricity doesn't bother me so much, I went through so many hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, it's second nature to live w/ candle light.

Texas is at least very cheap so you get a bit of what you pay for. frankly American is more than a little more.

Same corruption as anywhere else. It's just in the islands you see it more because of the small size and they do things differently than the mainlands to survive. Different culture. You see more underground economies there.
