We are going to Bonaire in August (for first time). Flying from Houston to Bonaire on Air Jamaica, the change of planes in Montego Bay only allows 45 minutes. Has anyone had experience with this? A 45 minute connection seems pretty tight!

We did the exact same flight in February. We left Houston on time but still arrived in Montego Bay about 15 minutes late because we had to circle the airport to allow other traffic to land before us. Even with that delay, we had no problem. And all our luggage arrived, too. I actually saw them load our luggage through the window on the plane. Make sure the Air Jamaica counter in Houston tags your luggage for your final destination of Bonaire. They should also put fluorescent green tags on your bags that lets the luggage guys in Jamaica know your bags are going on a connecting flight. Also, it is not uncommon for Air Jamaica to hold the connecting plane for late arrivals. I wouldn't worry about it. I think Air Jamaica is the best airline serving Bonaire at this point in time.

Anna we fly Air Jamaica now since they started service to Bonaire. We go twice a year...the connection does sound rather short but I believe they wait for the plane..our ONLY problem was the loss of luggage on one flight. At the ticket counter when checking your luggage make sure all tags say Bonaire as final destination......Have a great time......!!!

Just returned from Bonaire.... missing it already. Anyway, flew Air Jamaica for the first time. Left Monday, May 20 at 7am from Houston, arrived in Bonaire by 2:30. The connection in Montego Bay was very quick -- disembarked one plane, moved down one gate, and entered our new plane. All luggage made the move as well. I really enjoyed getting to Bonaire in the middle of the afternoon. And NOT going thru Miami is a BIG bonus!

You guys comfort me... I'm leaving for Bonaire on 6/12 from Newark, and I was VERY concerned after talking to our local dive shop.
