It was revealed today that Air Jamaica has acquired 2 A340 aircraft for the Jamaica-England route.Although this is good news for the airline, concern has been raised as to whether the airline will be able to sustain this as a possible fall out of Jamaica's tourism sector is a possibility due to the recent unrests in West Kingston.
The concern was aired by persons associated with the airline as it is widely reported around the world that all of Jamaica was in chaos when only a small portion of the capital city was having disturbances. JM it is hoped will be able to introduce these new aircraft for the summer run as they intend to increase flights to 11 per week into London.
(footnote).......I along with many persons have discovered how biased and sensational news agencies like CNN and the British media can be.As these news organizations tend to blow matters way out of proportion when reporting the news.

I work at JFK and JM has been doing tremendous traffic this summer in Terminals 2 and 3. I think JM is a strong airline.

However, how will fligths to London disturb the airline's partnership with VS?

Is Manchester there top priority to start. It will be great to see another airline operating A340s into MAN, besides Air Mauritius.

When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
