Air Jamaica just canceled my flight! Do I stay with them or switch?

Recommended Posts

So my travel agent just notified me that Air JA canceled my flight. frown.gif

 

She said I could switch the flight to the next day (which would be fine with me since we were going out there to spend a few days before the wedding anyway), or I could switch to US Air and fly both ways with a stop/transfer in Charlotte.

 

I am definitely trying to get a nonstop flight so I am inclined to stick with Air JA.... but now I'm nervous since we're 6 months out and they're already dropping flights!

 

Should I worry about sticking with Air JA? (I really want a nonstop flight but I'm nervous that they'll cancel again...)

I steer my clients away from JA when at all possible. They are notoriously cancelling flights (at least from this area). If they insist I sell them with a strong warning to be prepared for anything.

 

I'd personally save myself the stress and go with US.

**UPDATE** I now wish I had not recommended that ANYBODY book with Air Jamaica, but at the time they were offering the only nonstop flight from Chicago to Montego Bay, and we all wanted nonstop flights if available...

 

Now I just found out that they canceled the return flight for MEMORIAL DAY MONDAY! That doesn't make any sense-- that's the whole reason folks take advantage of traveling on the holiday weekend.

 

My FBIL, FI's cousins, and my parents were all bumped to the Sunday flight. what.gif Defeats the entire purpose of the long weekend. I am SO annoyed. rant.gif

I would just go with US Airways we used them for our trip to Mexico and it was very nice. The layovers werent that long one plus is that the Charlotte airport is huge with a great variety of food choices and shops.

I'm so sorry! Air Jamaica is possibly the worst airline we've ever flown, going and coming home. They didn't cancel our flights but the plane was very dated and the crew was less than hospitable...and it's hard for me to speak negatively about anything related to Jamaica because we love Jamaica, but it's true from our experience. All we could do was laugh so we didn't get upset.

 

Anyway, if it's not too late to change carriers I wouldn't try and change your mind!

American Airlines just cancelled our flights! We saved $500 but had to switch airlines and fly to Miami first instead of the original direct flight. We were bummed about it but happy to save a litte money!

Good luck! I don't know if they've cut that Monday flight on other routes or just Chicago....

My travel agent told me that they canceled the return flight to Chicago on Memorial Day Monday because they had concerns about flying back empty or close to empty on Tuesday. rant.gif

She tentatively rebooked everybody (my parents, FI's brother & cousins) to fly back Sunday but that defeats the whole purpose of the long holiday weekend! They'd all have to leave the day after the wedding.

She had meetings in JA last week and said she'd continue to plead our case, so I'm waiting for her to get back to figure out exactly what we're going to do....

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
