    Default Recent Club Mobay Saturday arrivals

    Hi there.

    Wondering if anyone has done a recent Club Mobay Saturday arrival? In our two previous trips with Saturday arrivals, the lines at immigration were horrible. Three planes land around 3:00pm and the mad rush is on at that time. Are you really brought through immigration past the long lines or am I wishful thinking? Standing in line for 2.5 hours after sitting in an airborne tube for 4.5, all while having to pee, isn't a good way to start vacation! The last two trips, it was 4 hours from landing to the resort, including the bus ride. That means we spent 2.5 hours at the airport. We literally didn't get to the resort until after 7 pm. If Club Mobay shortens that time for us, I am all for it, but some of the reviews on this board and on TA say its not worth it. I am looking for info specific to Saturday as I understand immigration is no problem mon on other days! Thanks for any and all info that can be provided!

    Hello! We arrived on a Friday, and the Club Mobay representations that you are fast tracked are true!!!!! Several (more than 3) flights landed at the same time as our flight, and we bypassed the long line and were taken to the front of the fast track line at Immigration. There was also a long line at Customs too, and the Mobay Rep took us to the front of the Fast Track line for that too! She then walked with us to the entry of the Couples Lounge and gave us our tickets for the Mobay Departure Lounge!

    We were thrilled with the package! Have a great trip!

    I am also interested in the wait lines experienced by travelers on Saturdays during peak travel months.
    I'd love to hear from travelers who recently arrived on a Saturday - let's keep this thread going for a while!
    We arrive on 3/23 at 11:50 AM.... not sure if we should consider a MoBay pass, but are considering it.
    Please let us know what your experience is during the next few weeks!

    Hi Patrice&Kevin:

    I will also be arriving on a Saturday and I'd love to hear from you after you return whether you used the Club Mobay package and if you thought it was worth it.

    Last year we arrived on a Saturday afternoon in February and waited in line for more than 2 hours. Made the mistake of booking another Saturday flight for Feb 9, so will likely be delayed in line for a few hours this trip too. We will probably look into getting passes to hopefully avoid the long wait.

    Great to hear that. We'll be doing the arrival part of the package on Feb. 1st so hoping it is as good as they say it is. I will try to post a update after we get settled.

    Hi;
    We used the service this past Saturday. Arrived at 2pm and were thru to the Couples Lounge by 215. The airport was a madhouse so I would estimate we saved at least 2 hours.

    Wait a minute, what is this club Mobay you're speaking of? Immigration is always a nightmare for us and our travel time takes us 24 hours to arrive at our resort so if we can decrease time at the airport then I'm all for it. Where do I purchase this???

    Think we're going to try the arrival option this year. We used the Club MoBay departure service last year for a Saturday departure and really enjoyed bypassing the lines. We even got lucky enough to connect with a skycap as we arrived at the airport who took us right to the front of the airline check-in counter, past a very long line of people. I'm not sure he was supposed to do that ~ don't think that's part of the service ~ but it was certainly appreciated!

    Jan and Mark ~ maybe we'll see you there, since we're arriving on the same day and time!

    If you use Club Mobay and then go to the couples location in the aiport for the bus trip do you know if you wait for the two hours for the other folks to get to the couples location as well or does the bus run a few times to the resort .... ? Thanks !

    We arrived on Sat. Jan.12 around 1:00 pm and there were NO lines! We went thru immigration, had our checked bags, thru customs and were at the Couples Lounge at 1:20. I actually felt sorry for those that paid extra for Mobay, LOL. It's all in the timing. The MBJ airport had about 30 immigration lines open when we arrived.

    We always plan to arrive on a weekday about noon, so we do not need the Club Mobay fast track. Two weeks ago we arrived on a Wednesday at 1:00 pm and we were at the Couples lounge in 10 minutes after deplaning.

    We usually leave MBJ on a weekend, so we use the Club Mobay departure plan. We were thru security in 5 minutes, with long security lines. With the free food and drinks, we think Club Mobay is worth every penny.

    Thanks TRM! We arrive on a Thursday in March at around 1pm. What time do you get in? Looking forward to hearing how busy the airport was.

    LindaBrian--I was wondering the same thing. Although I can't imagine it would be that busy for us on a Thursday, I'm curious all the same as to what they would do in that circumstance.

    As others have stated, definitely check out flightstats.com before you leave to see how many flights will be arriving around the same time as yours. It may help you make your decision about whether or not to purchase the Club Mobay arrival package.

    Hi louieandsusie! Hubby and I arrived at 2:14pm on Friday on a JetBlue flight. Our Club Mobay representative met us at our gate, reviewed our Immigration forms to make sure we hadn't missed anything! I'm glad she checked our forms! My husband had forgotten to sign and date his! She escorted us to Immigration and the line was up the ramp at least 90 minutes! She took us to the front of the Club Mobay fast track line and we were off to pick up our luggage in less than 5 minutes! Our rep got us a cart for our 1 suitcase.....we pack our clothes in our carry-ons and we check 1 empty suitcase to bring home our coffee and rum. She then took us to the front of the fast track line for Customs and then escorted us to the entry to the Couples Lounge and gave us our Departure tickets! We purchased the Arrival/Departure package because we were flying during the high tourist season and wanted to start our vacation as soon as possible! Now I know how great the Arrival service is, I may continue to buy it! Then I won't have to worry about how many planes may or may not be landing at the the same time as ours!

    Have a great trip!

    Hi LindaBrian! When you get to the Couples Lounge, you should not have to wait more than 20 minutes or so for your shuttle. You will not need to wait for the other guests to make it to the Lounge to start your vacation! We used the Club Mobay Arrival and Departure for our trip in December. Our flight landed at 2:14pm and we were at the Couples Lounge around 2:30ish and we were on our shuttle to CSS before 3pm!

    Have a wonderful trip!

    Hi Jan;

    Here is a copy of the review I posted on TA for ClubMobay:

    This service is worth every penny!!!!!
    We arrived at 2pm on Saturday January 19th and were whisked through customs, luggage and to the Club Mobay lounge in less than 10 minutes.
    Tameka Bryce looked after us like royalty and we will never attempt to navigate this airport without the services of ClubMobay ever again.
    Our departure service was just as wonderful. The departure lounge is gorgeous, the drinks plentiful and all top shelf liquor. Very impressed with the lounge for adults only, most thoughtful!
    I have already recommended this service to many and will continue to do so!

    Marnies, Did you have to wait long for your luggage after you were excorted through so long? How long did you wait in the Couples lounge before your bus arrived?

    Hmmm. We're interested but wondering if a Wednesday arrival(1ish I believe) & departure warrants this? Thoughts & feedback are welcomed. And also, how do we go about purchasing this?? Thanks! Razzl
