Air Jamaica cuts # of free checked bags :(

Recommended Posts

AJ just changed the # of checked bags included in the ticket price from 2 to the usual 1 that other airlines allow. I am so upset as we are bringing so much stuff and now we will have to pay $25 more per bag. This change will go into affect after Oct. 14th. I thought I would have my MOH and her boyfriend use their second bags for my wedding stuff and have FI and I take the other 2 bags of stuff and now it looks like this will end up costing us $100 to get the stuff down there. Do any of you girls know if they count your dress as your carry on? Or is it just allowed on extra. I have a TTD and Wedding dress that have to go on the plane with me so I was wondering if any of you knew how they handle that? I really hope they don't charge $25 for each of those too!

I didn't fly Air Jamaica, but your dress doesn't normally count as carry-on. I ended up stuffing a WHOLE bunch of stuff in my dress bag, because no one asked me about it, weighed or opened it up to look inside.

Wow... we are flying America in 3 days but my family is taking AJ and is taking extra bags for us too... Glad we made the cut off, but this is going to be tough for future brides.

Sh*t!!!! I have been holding off on booking our flights because I'm pretty sure the prices will drop a little more, but now it looks like the extra baggage fee is going to cancel out any savings. That will teach me for waiting sad.gif

Dress does not count as carry on...but be sure garment bag is clearly marked with your name. There were 4 other brides on my flight with davids bridal bags. I also stuffed my veil and under-skirt thingy in there as well, there was a ton of room on the bottom. It was only a hassle to lug around at the departing airport.

My in-law just flew AJ and said there was only 1 bathroom, so make sure you go before you board.

    • 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.
