Chances are it could happen. We were one of the ones who got stuck in Jamacia overnight and AJ put us up at the Holiday Inn Montego Bay. I did my post under AJ experience. If you do book AJ just remember it could happen and go with the flow. That's what we did. Have a great trip !

Hey, Carl! Glad to see AJ's flights went well and that you had a great time, again. You bum!! You are becoming a real Bonaire traveler, now, eh? That's great! It must have been nice to have lots of room on the Bon MB flight...that is so rare. I guess on Wednesday it is not as crowded as on the weekends. Where did you hit the waters this time around??

We had a great experience flying down via Ft.Lauderdale on April 20. A mechanical failure resulted in AJ chartering a jet to fly down from the states on Sunday May 1 to rescue about 200 of us. As a result we were 12 hrs. late getting back to Louisville KY. We were supposed to fly back MB to Atlanta to Louisville. Instead it was MB to Boston , to Chicago to Louisville. However, we did get to accompany Kirstie Alley (Cheers, Fat Actress,(she's not fat now, she's foxey)), down the concourse in Boston.

I am flying AJ ATL/MB/BON Sunday July 3rd, with a group from my LDS and returning the following Sunday. All this talk about the Sunday flights has started to make me a little nervous. Keep us posted on good(and not so good)AJ experiences.

I am so glad that you had a wonderful experience. I hope that AJ stays on top of their game.

Had no idea Air Jamaica flew there... ;-)
|By Bob Banker (BonaireTalker - Post #19) on Wednesday, May 11, 2005 - 4:54 am:|
We are up early this morning to go to the airport and saw an email from Air Jamaica saying that today's 8:20 flight from Atlanta to MB has been delayed until 9:14am. I figured that they would do this since yesterday's flight from MB to ATL was late and there is a mandated crew rest time. The good news so far is that no flights have been cancelled.

Hope you made it ok, Bob...hope we do hear from you after you had a great trip! Since you have not posted all day, today, we can "hope" you are on Bonaire right now enjoying yourself and not in a MB hotel room.....Thanks for the update. Carole

Just an update from me on AJ. Flew to Bonaire on AJ from May 4-11 and I can say it is very intense for all wondering what is going to happen to the airline end of month. I flew from Phila to MoBay then to Bonaire, and there was only about twenty people flying on aircraft from MoBay to Bonaire and from Bonaire to MoBay. Plenty of seats available. I had no delays except from MoBay to Bonaire due to a little later departure time, but still made it to Bonaire and coming home yesterday, we left Bonaire about 15 minutes early and left on time for Phila. from Mobay. So, all worked out o.k. for my trip, but not sure what is going to happen end of May for the airline. I really hope that AJ works out it's problems and will continue to service Mobay to Bonaire, but I guess time will tell. I am waiting to see before I buy tickets for our August vacation to Bonaire.

We flew Air Jamaica Boston-Bonaire Apr 30 - May 11. All flights were on time, early, or at most a few minutes late.

Also, we were there at the same time there was a "Digital Shoot-off" being held at the Habitat. We learned from some of the participants who stayed longer than 1 week that some of the others (who went home after 1 week) and took AA found their very expensive cameras and housings developed legs in San Juan.

Susans and My easy to spot feature really worked well as the Pursers on both legs of the Air Jamaica flights recognized us from past flights. It was like old home week.

Well, it was almost an excellent experience. Our flight on May 11th to Bonaire was just about on schedule. Gate agents and flight crews were courteous and helpful. All luggage arrived with us. As usual the TSA had opened the bag with the peanut butter; but we had TSA locks, so the bags were still locked when we arrived.

Thanks for the report on AJ, Bob. Glad it all worked out for you.

Hi, guys, just checking in. AJ was excellent today...actually arrived in Montego Bay one half hour early from Newark. The MB to Bonaire flight was perfection, too.....on time, right on the mark and arrived before the KLM 747!!!

There's pretty good prices on Scotch at the airport in Jamaica Carole.
