The Jamaican PM was on radio tonight on a live call in program and he advised that there will be more trimming at JM as he wants to see the carrier in position where it can take off without any"baggage" once the new owner take over. As such the uncertainty that the staff is experiencing understandable as they are concern about job security but he wants to have a "soft landing" for the airline staff and that implies some more staff cut but they will get a good severance package

He also advise that there will be a re-fleeting of the airline but did not indicate whether or not JM will be sticking with Airbus or Boeing. He indicated that an announcement will be made soon but for confidentiality purpose no more information can be given at this time. Finally, he repeated that the name "Air Jamaica" will be around and that the new owner has agreed to pump some significant amount of capital into the carrier.

On the same note it seems that the union is on a warpath with the management as they think that any retrenchment of staff should start at top management but earlier in the year, the JM chair dismissed the union request and insisted that JM management has the right mix of people to carry it through the divestment process.
