    I just found out that Air Jamaica has cut is flights between JFK and MBJ to once a day from twice a day. Mind you, I only found this out b/c I was online searching for specials for my guests. I booked my flight only this past Tuesday, and all of a sudden my 7:30 a.m. flight is now 12:45 p.m. NO ONE sent me any notification! Sooo... please double check your flights!!

      Arrgh! So aggravating!

      They got me too. My flight to Jamaica was canceled, and then they also canceled the Memorial Day Monday flight returning to Chicago from Montego Bay! (no direct flights for my guests taking advantage of the holiday weekend)

        Yep...welcome to Air Jamaica!!! My flights out of ATL were cancelled completely....my 9 family members out of JFK were changed to a later flight...what a PITA. I am just PRAYING that they don't get their flights cancelled. Guess AJ is trying to avoid going under.

            I have been keeping a pretty close eye on the press regarding Air Jamaica's financial health. They are still trying to privatize the airline and find a buyer or partner by the end of this month. Now, being an attorney who has worked on mergers, etc., I can tell you, they may find a partner, but it is highyl doubtful that a deal is going to close that quickly.

            For now, it looks like the business plan is to streamline ops as best they can. For un NY'ers, Jet Blue is (starting in May) nonstop service from JFK to MBJ at 755 am each day, so I am sure that is why the 730 am Air Jamacia flight got blended with the former 230 flight into a 12:45. UGH!

            I will just keep on checking every day to make sure I still have a flight!

              Happen to me too!! Bought our tickets 2 months ago. It was brought to my attention when one guest tried to change her flight... it had already been done by Air Jamaica. So much for sleeping in...

                that happened to me too. flight time went from 9am to 7am. not that big of a difference so it did not bother me much. i had to book air jamaica cuz they were having a sale that i could not pass up. and they are the only nonstop flight from my area and it was worth it to me. i just hope they dont cancel the flight all together or i might be screwed. i just keep checking to see what they are doing.

                  They cancelled my Saturday flight a few weeks ago (from Orlando, FL), and when I called them they stated that they were not flying to Jamaica from Orland on Tuesdays or Saturdays any longer. One rep even went as far as to say that she was told that they may be going bankrupct. Because they couldn't get me to Jamaica in time to chek in at the hotel they gave me every last penny back and I booked with American Airlines for 28 dollars more(total for both people). They didnt have a direct flight, but at least I don't have to worry about not getting there.

                    Same thing happened to me and a few of my guests last week. We were flying out of JFK. I was very very pissed off. I should have followed my instincts and flew AA. Hopefully they don't cancel anything else.

                      Same thing happened to me and my guests. We are all flying Air Jamaica because it is the only direct flight to MB. They only had one flight in and flight out the whole time we have been looking. We booked all of our air tickets and all of our guests did too. Most of them are leaving from baltimore but some are leaving from JFK and than some from DC. They changed the baltimore flight from 8:35am to 7:00am. Which isnt that big of a difference, but after reading some of the posts I am worried that they will cancel our flights!!
