Just heard an Air Jamaica flight land at JFK. The controller asked "since when does Air Jamaica fly 757s into JFK?" Pilot responded they were flying North American equipment. Anyone have details?

North American does a wetlease for Jm during the summer months and sometimes during the winter months.

Thanks for the info. I'm guessing this is done during busy season for JM? Do they fly the 757s on any specific routes? And how many do they lease?

In years past they would use the 757 on a jfk/mbj/fll/mbj/jfk and a 2nd 757 on jfk/kin/jfk. I believe this year it was supposed to be jfk/gnd/jfk only, but if a plane goes tech..then they might have to sub the 757 for a nyc-jam flight.

And as was disclosed recently it also did a couple of ORD-MBJ rotations in the past. An A321 went tech in YYZ recently plus the absence of two aircraft that are still in China so the B752 is busy doing JFK rotations.

Air Jamaica recognizes that in some seasons the A321 doesn't have the necessary performance to do what it needs to have done, and thus it wet-leases some 757s. There was a thread a while ago on its CEO's plans to make some fleet changes, but the wet-leases may accomplish the same thing without needing to buy new metal and retrain crews, if the 321 does what they need most of the time.

JFK is NAA's home airport, so that makes it easy for them to integrate into the schedule.
