    I also wanted to say that I see a couple people getting married at ROR in June..days apart from my wedding date which is the 11. I will be there the 7-14 and than we are honeymooning at Couples Swept Away Resort from the 14-21. I am really excited to get to know you all and maybe we can share our wedding ideas! I have around 50 or more guests that already booked so you will deffintley see all of us around!

      Ditto...seems as though Air Jamaica is days away from being divested by the government...if online news sources are correct. Its one thing to have flight times changed, but I'm worried about last minute cancellation as both my photographer and priest are traveling via AJ. For those that had their flight cancelled, did you get refunded or did AJ re-book for you on another airline?

      My wedding is in a month, and all the other ticket prices are rising daily...has anyone looked into trip/travel insurance?

        I am so happy I read this post. I will now watch my flights, I know the time was changed, but I was thinking it ws due to daylight savings or something.

          Since AJ couldn't get me to Jamaica on time to check in and be there enough time for the wedding they gave me back every last cent. To be honest Sandals didn't have a clue and I called AJ myself and then got in touch with the Sandals booking department. However, they did state that they had no idea and I was the 1st person to call them about an entire cancellation. Most were just changed and they were okay with it. As for insurance I purchased it through Sandals and it covered my flight and land in case of flight cancellations or sickness, and etc. It was 99.00/person.

            Well I see this is still going on. Here's my thread about Air Jamaica: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t36101

              Yep, still going on. As soon as I got word that my flight was cancelled, I booked on US Air for a huge discount. It worked out well but it was stressful. I got my money back from AJ very quickly.

                Yeah, that happened to me as well. I went to check my flights out of Atlanta for my guest and continually got an error message. Did they ever, officially announce the pull back, that would have been the appropriate thing to do, instead of
                'surprising' everyone.

                  I didn't receive any notification from them, but I am going through a TA. I doubt that I would have very quickly or easily notified people though. I just checked every day, and then one day, I got that error message too. I told my TA and she hounded AJ until they finally told her that the flights were cancelled. Then I got my money back.

                    But I do believe there were articles out there mentioning that they were pulling out of LAX, ATL and Orlando? I was not aware of the cutbacks at JFK, although that happened to my family.

                      Deadline For Air Jamaica Privatization Gets Pushed to June

                      I feel for you Summer '09 brides, but I have a 'little' more confidence that my guests can travel next week without worrying if they'll get stranded in Jamaica (not that most would mind that!). Air Jam has definitely wreaked havoc with a bunch of my guests travel plans..i still have guests trying to get last minute flights so they can make their connections..

                      Anyone hear anything about who's buying?..i'm thinking Virgin Atlantic...
