    Flight Cancelations

    Anyone have troubles with flight cancelations to MBJ, or back to the states? With so many flights being canceled here, I'm hesitant to book our February trip. Nothing worse than getting all revved up and then the airline pulls the rug out from under you. Although I wouldn't mind being stuck in JA for an extra few days.

    Yup…we were scheduled to fly out of MBJ to Charlotte @5:50pm on Thursday 12/30. We got to the airport around 2:30. The AA clerk started to check us in & said your flight has already been delayed twice & is going to be canceled shortly as the crew is going to “time out”. She could put us on a 6:30 flight to Miami and fly us to Charlotte at ass o’clock the next morning, but wouldn’t be able to put us in first class. AA would pay for our room if we took that flight. Other option would be to fly out Friday direct to Charlotte in first class (we originally paid for first class seats). AA would not reimburse us if we chose to fly out next day. We would have to get another Covid test at our expense. We were able to contact our driver & he turned around and picked us up. Big up to Damion James of Damion Tours! He took us to a drive thru Covid test site in Mobay & got us to a decent hotel. We ended up at Grand A View Hotel. We always keep a change of clothes in our carryon just in case. Luckily we were able to keep our luggage. Total out of pocket $250. for room & 2 Covid tests.

    That is exactly what I'm afraid of. Being retired, my schedule is as flexible as it gets, but my wife is still among the working class, so we don't have a lot of room for error. Several more flights canceled today out of MKE. I'll wait until the chaos subsides.

    Yeah omicron stinks. I was planning on heading down for a short stay in 2 weeks with my son and his girlfriend. So many in our work and social lives are catching it. Between the high positivity rates in New England ( over 25% ) the difficulty of scheduling tests and getting the results in time, and flight cancellations I pulled the plug on the trip yesterday. Despite the allure of being stuck on a tropical island -real world responsibilities wouldn't let me chance it. Postponed until the spring 😞

    Emailed to Mark at Zimbali and he said he was getting a lot of cancellations. I expect other places are as well

    One flight cancelled at Sangster Int'l yesterday, three cancelled today. Over 110 total flights in and out today. Not a huge problem in Jamaica. Total cancellations within, into, or out of the United States today: 1,838.
