    When I heard the news I thought the same thing, hope no one from the BDW forum was involved. I knew a few of the RIU Montego Bay brides had been there last week, but was hopeful that everyone was safely at home when this happened. Talk about being in a dramatic situation--YIKES !
    So glad that everyone is safe !

    so crazy! I saw this on the news today and I couldn't believe it! I'm so glad that everyone is safe and sound. I'm not sure that the bride was acually on that flight though, because all the reports I've heard have been talking about the guests going down. Hopefully this didn't interfere with their wedding!

      wow i am so glad everything turned out well in the end and that no one that we knew (potentially only the guests of the bride and groom were on board. it is really scary and the security at Sangster really needs to step up! I hope they throw the book at this direlict!

            We were the next Canadian flight out of MoBay after the CanJet incident -- zero issues with getting through the airport and our flight was on time. The CanJet plane was still out on the tarmac when we got there and the Jamaican police had just arrested him when we arrived at the airport. Not sure if anyone from BDW was on that flight.... Im pretty sure montegobay09 (Gisele?) was from Halifax and her wedding was this month at the Riu in MoBay -- hopefully it wasnt her flight out.

              Nope, wasn't my flight. I had just gotten home when it happened and our phone was ringing off the hook with people checking to make sure it wasn't us! Such a scary experience I'm sure but thankfully everything was resolved.
