What To Expect From Air Jamaica?

Mon Sep 17, 2001 12:50 am

My father will be going LHR-MBJ soon. What can be expected from their service on long haul flights?

BA is not possible as there are no more flights between VIE and LGW, only VIE-LHR.

Thanks!  Smile

I haven't flown them but I've only heard the best from those who have. JM wins several awards yearly for their lovebird service. Many of their planes are new and if your flying from LGW I'm sure the A340 will be a pleasure to fly.. One final note I do know they have fashion shows on their longer flights...

Air Jamaica is a great airline.. I hae flown with them before only to the US though.. The flight was great, service was good.. the flight was late a few times that is aiight.. I give them an 8 out of 10. However they loose two points, cause unlike the others, i was not impressed with their food at all. In fact on my flight down.. we were served breakfast and this was teh first time in my life i did not eat my meal onboard an aircraft.. I tasted it and left it behind.. But everything else with no understatements was great..

Tell ur dad have a good flight as i am sure he would.
There is something special about planes....

KLMFan,

do you think it might be possible to grab an airsickness bag for my collection? I´d certainly pay all your postal expenses. Plus you´d get an honorable mention on my website´s donor list  Big grin.

Feel free to drop me a mail:

daniel.ka(at)bluemail.ch

Thanks,

Daniel Smile

I know this is out of topic b ut , they have fashion shows onboard their flights? Can someone explain how they do it and why they do it? Sorry for the question.

Cheers.

Airsicknessbag,
Actually it is not so sure yet that it will be JM, but there won't be that much possibilities from VIE to MBJ.
He's going in October and returning in November. I'll tell him and I hope that he won't forget. I also tell him to take lots of pictures and the inflight magazines.

Is there anything else anybody wants from that aircraft? Big grin
Pe@rson, which wheel do you want, there are four? Do want just one?  Wink/being sarcastic

I'm sorry, there are nore than four wheels on an A340. I wanted to write "more than one". Embarrassment

You collect air sick bags? Interesting  Laugh out loud
Hopefully, it won't be one of those generic plain white bags, or, the nameless blues that some airlines use. I suspect the "budget conscious" operators have no choice.
