Air Jamaica Late?

Thu Aug 15, 2002 12:41 am

Hi everyone
Hope this isn't a stupid question but today I was at MAN(EGCC) and according to Flight Routings 2002 the Air Jamaica flight from Kingston should have arrived at 10.30am.
However after waiting patiently to see the beast that is the A340-300 it finally arrived at 2.30pm....as I was driving away so I missed any photo opportunities ARGGG!!!

Anyone know why it was so late??-any replies MUCH appreciated.

And I'd like to say you can confirm the timetable via the MAN website, but this service isn't listed! Gives all manner of connecting services but not the non-stop one...very clever I don't think. Any wonder why MAN is losing passengers at the moment!

The title of "Air Jamaica Late?" is equivalent to saying "jetBlue over-hyped?" or "Southwest is like a cattle-car?" etc.  Big grin

SORRY I must of got the times wrong!!-shall I publicly hang my head in shame for this utter incompetence!!???(hey were not all perfect)  Crying

Kaddyuk I was in the viewing park from about 8.30am to 12.30pm then I went with my Dad along the footpath by 24L, down Lady Lane. This spot is SUPERB especially in the morning with 24L takeoffs, the view of the EGCC is fantastic from here.
