This year for the very first time we are going to use Tim Air and fly to Negril from Montego Bay. We just need some advice on the approximate amount that is norm for tipping the pilot. Having never done this before, we just want to make sure we tip him adequately..... We are 33 days away and is getting difficult to keep our minds on anything other then Jamaica!!!! Thanks for any help you can offer!
I think that we have tipped him or her, $10.00. I don't really know if that is good or not. They certainly make a lot more than the average Jamaican worker. I know some people that have tipped as much as $25.00. So I guess it really depends on what you are comfortable with. You're going to love the trip.
I gave our pilot a tip, keep the shiney side up and the dirty side down. He laughed and we bumped knuckles, then he asked what I flew. Turns out he has about 500 hours in the type of aircraft I have so it was fun. Then I gave him a $20 and told him great flight.
Thanks everyone. That is the amount we were thinking but thought we'd just play it safe and put it to the experts!! I am very excited to fly and see the aerial views , but I am equally terrified!!! However it's on my bucket list, so this year I can cross that one off. Bert we will be at CN from the 8th of April through the 15th,then we head over to CSA ....so we should definitely cross paths, especially if you go to the AN beach. We will be there all week with friends that we have made at CTI over years past. Hope to meet you at CN!!!
