Today I decided to look up Air Jamaica on Youtube, and I saw a photo of a Boeing 747 that Air Jamaica had leased. I am wondering when and how long AJM used this 747, and did they use a Jamaican cockpit and cabin crew, or the the airline they leased the 747 from, provide the crew?

Air Jamaica leased (wet leased?) 747s from both Aer Lingus and Tower Air during the 1980s, usually for several months during the winter.

The Aer Lingus aircraft leased were EI-ASI and EI-BED:

I believe EI-ASI was leased during the winter months of 1983-84.

EI-BED was leased from 15 November 1986 until 16 April 1987.

N602FF was leased from 1 July 1987 to 31 May 1988.

I am guessing that as Air Jamaica ad no 747s of their own that rather than retrain sufficient crews to operate the leased planes they damp leased if not wet leased them.
