We take the 6 am Air Jamaica flight out of Philly. In November, we arrived at MBJ by 9 and were the first plane through that day. I had my first Red Stripe at 9:20 am!!!! We got to CN a little after 11 - lunch wasn't even open yet! We changed into the bathing suits from our carry-ons and hit the beach.
Someone else just asked the same question. We fly out of Boston on U.S. Air around 5:00 a.m. Arrive in Charlotte around 7:00. leave Charlotte around 8:00 and arrive in Jamaica around 10:00, sometimes closer to 11:00
We will by flying with Sun Country and will arrive at 10:05 a.m. They are a Charter flight through "Fun Jet Vacations". Guess we better pack our swim suits in our carryon. We will have lots of time before checkin.
US Air out of Charlotte flight leaving at 7:50 am gets you into MBJ at 10:50 am. Usually through immigrations and customs and in the Couples Lounge by 11:30-11:45 and at CN (where we go) in time for the lunch buffet and onto the beach.
Definitely Air Jamaica (now Caribbean Airlines) if your leaving from the Philadelphia Airport that is...there flights tend to arrive in Jamaica around 8:30 a.m., which will then place you at Couples around 11ish...perfect time to still have the whole day to enjoy the beach! As a matter of fact, thats what I'll be doing on May 23rd!! Can't wait!!
We are flying Delta this year and our flight is scheduled into MoBay at about 11 in the morning. Not too bad, best we have found from STL. We figure to be at CSA around 3. From our experience if you can get in before noon from the States, you are doing pretty good.
It all depends on where they are coming from. I'd imagine Miami has some early direct flights but if you don't live there it doesn't really matter. We get there around 11:30 using US Air each time and that includes a stop in Charlotte. You won't do much better than that unless you have a direct flight from your city.
