Air Jamaica stopped flights out of ATL, MIA, & LAX

Recommended Posts

My TA called to notify me that Air Jamaica will no longer fly out of ATL, MIA, & LAX. I don't know if this is permanent but they won't be flying in March. Yes, my wedding month. censored.gif I have guest coming out of ATL and LAX. I had to switch our flight to Delta recently due to Air Jamaica cancelling Wednesday flights out of ATL. Now they are stopping service in March. I have 7 guest who will have to book on other airlines. I wonder if they're about to go under.

Wow...that is crazy! Sorry you're dealing with this! Although it sucks & probably doesn't ease the pain, at least you're finding out about this now & not in March!!!

Do your guests that had already booked with them, get all of their $ back?

 

I decided to google this to see what I found in terms of them going out of business & this is what came up:

 

Jamaica Gleaner News - Air Jamaica: Time's up - Friday | June 13, 2008

 

Air Jamaica pulling out of MIA - Triangle Business Journal:

 

Air Jamaica to end service to Miami - Breaking News - Business - MiamiHerald.com

 

So it seems like they are being sold but trying to stay in business. I guess time will tell!

Yes, they offered to switch them to the next closest city they service or full refunds. The closest city from Atlanta would be Orlando or Ft. Lauderdale. They requested refunds but it will take them 3-6 weeks to get it. Thanks for the info.

Calling my TA - this is making me nervous....

 

My flights are still ok for May out of ATL, but I have a feeling I will be booking last minute on another carrier....just something else to stress over I suppose.

 

My entire family is flying Air Jamaica out of JFK. Hopefully nothing negative will come out of that!

All - Jet Blue announced today that it will start daily non-stop flights from JFK - MBJ on May 21, 2009. Other cities will be available with connections.

 

Huge relief for us, we were getting worried with all the bad news re: Air Jamaica

Thanks! I kinda figured this was going to happen....

 

I have sent this e-mail to my TA so hopefully we can get this worked out. As long as I get a full refund, I don't really care at this point about the cancellation. I think I am actually just going to fly out of Raleigh or Charlotte.

 

I just hope that everyone in my family (10 flying out of JFK) don't run into this too

Yeah, my flight is cancelled. I hate Air Jamaica. My TA said not to expect a refund for up to 6 months. So now I'm out $600.00 for the forseeable future. Not to mention that I have 9 people flying Air Jamaica out of JFK and there is no mention as to whether they are going to cancel that or go bankrupt...

 

So its kind of a limbo thing at this point.

Just wanted to give those affected by this an update. We got our refund on yesterday from Air Jamaica. We requested it back on January 6th.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
