    Default Air Jamaica - still okay to book?

    Is it okay to book Air Jamaica for November?

    Would you leave on a 2:40pm direct flight on Jet Blue to come home from Couples or book a 5:25pm flight (not direct, stopping in Kingston, then home to NY) so as to spend a few more ours at Couples befor leaving to come home?

    You may spend a COUPLE more hours at the resort ( you will have to leave 3-4 hours prior to flight time either way) but you will make up for them sitting on the plane during the stop at KIN. Anytime you add a stop to a flight plan you are asking for possible delays.
    Always take the direct flight

    I think it is, the government is not going to just shut them down. They are linked to much to the revenue for the country. They are running some good specials.

    We booked Air Jamaica for our September trip. Non-Stop flight from BWI to MB! It's a 3 hour flight and we arrive at MB at 9:15am. Great price and have never been disappointed! Fifth flight on AJ 3xCSA 1xCN 1xCSS!

    But it is true that Air Jamaica is up for sale, right?

    Two of our friends both booked on AJ for this October, had direct flights (Chicago) and both had their flights cancelled. Now they have significant layovers and did not get any kind of refund.

    So....just something to consider.
