The pressure on the Jamaican government from the pending IMF deal will likely force their hand on the AJ sale soon enough. The news lately is turning back to a purchase/merger from Caribbean Air (Trinidad & Tobago owned), as opposed to Spirit or their owners.

I doubt either deal would re-open the recently closed AJ routes anytime soon, but perhaps long term may provide stability and growth to AJ.
