The price! Also, it is with Gate 1, a tour operator with whom we have had some terrific trips. We figured it couldn't possibly be good at that price but is was!

Truly a fantastic deal. Got a hotel upgrade so practically my own private villa, the airplane had ample leg room, and nothing went wrong at all. Direct flights to and from LAX to Fiji. I will definitely use Gate 1 Travel again to fly!
