American Airlines, Delta & United Airlines fly the most frequently from the United States to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Yes, they do. While the islands are considered "unincorporated territories" of the United States, they do use the same currency, so there are no foreign exchange transactions involved for US citizens or permanent residents after your flight from the US to US Virgin Islands. Both airports have ATMs in case you need some cash after you arrive.
This is a matter of personal preference, however according to many travel magazines, St. John has some of the most pristine and beautiful beaches (Trunk Bay Beach, Honeymoon Bay Beach) that are included on the Top 10 list. After you arrive at St. Thomas Island Airport and take the ferry to the island, you can visit them all.
Virgin Islands National Park is the biggest national park in the US Virgin Islands and consumes most of the island of St. John (about 60%). While it is relatively close to Christiansted Airport, St. Thomas Island Airport on St. Thomas is much closer, so you should factor that into your travel plans.
It is recommended to travel by taxi or rental car when on holiday in the US Virgin Islands. Please be advised, though, that you must use the left side of the street when driving around the islands.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was courteous."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I am very impressed with the level of consistency that Delta has offered the last couple of months. This flight didn’t disappoint. The crew was particularly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Pros: "The Airbus was so futuristic. If you can make it more futuristic, even better."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to put my bag under when there was plenty of room overhead."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Pros: "The cookies and soda was good and staff was exceptional. Instead of cheezits, chips would be better"
Cons: "Instead of cheezits, please upgrade to chips"
Pros: "Amazing entertainment display and the boarding process is smooth."
Pros: "Movies were good, once in flight it was a smooth ride"
Cons: "Communicate better during the delay"
Pros: "Everything and everyone was very nice and helpful My son has a cognitive disability and he flew by his self And they helped him find his seat and treated him with respect."
Cons: "While trying to get a gate pass to pick up our son from the gate Delta service makes it very hard to know where to go and get the pass and then they only had one person working at ticket assist. Totally unacceptable. Many managers walking around but no one actually helping."
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great"
Cons: "They charged me $646 for the flight. And we departed 40 min later. I arrived late to my work. They gave me seat in the back of the plane. Horrible"
Pros: "Very comfortable seating!"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough. Lol"
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Pros: "Clean plane, quick turnaround"
Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "All went well"
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis.

Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."

Made no sense to me."
