It is now 5:30am local time and outside does not look pretty. Even though the wind is calm the rain is pouring with thunder and lightning. Will try to keep you updated as long as I have electricity.

In such a competitive industry I do believe it is best for them to focus on becoming a LCC since they hardly serve meals on their flights and with the opening of the Ritz Carlton property Newark/New York should be giv...

RE: Wide Bodies - Short Haul

This one takes the cake Air Jamaica operates their A340-300 between Montego Bay and Kingston. The flight time is actually 17 mins and the flight continues to either London or Manchester.

Air Jamaica To Add $40US To Cover Fuel Cost.

Last week an announcement was made regarding charging an additional $40 per ticket to cover high rising fuel cost. I have heard of $10, $15 and $8, but $40 does that mean there will be free upgrades?
