    10 Things you'll miss about AirJ

    Yes, there was the hundreds of lost luggage every Christmas, delayed and canceled flights, and an occasional disgruntled employee.

    But for over 40 years, it was a "Little Piece of Jamaica - That Flies".
    With the current administration's plans, Air Jamaica as we know it, will cease to exist this year.

    What most will you miss about AirJ?

    Sounds a great experience, a flight on Air Jamaica. Sadly I have yet to experience it - probably never now.

    Re: 10 Things you'll miss about AirJ

    I'll miss...

    * 1. Feeling like I was still at home.
    * 2. Flight attendants speaking to me as if they had known me for a long time and trying to guess what I wanted to eat or drink.
    * 3. Trusting and feeling safe with pilots who always said what I wanted to hear when I wanted to hear it and most time landed the plane widdout jerkin out mi soul case.
    * 4. Reading Sky Writings.
    * 5. Flying over Cuba when some people aren't allowed to do so.
    * 6. Removing Sky Writings and other reading material from the plane.
    * 7. Having a chance to get another hot breakfast with callaloo, saltfish and bammy!
    * 8. Feeling flight attendants rubbing against my shoulder when walking by or standing beside me - a reasonable compensation when I didn't get a window seat.
    * 9. Watching the flight attendants as they walked away.
    * 10. Hearing questions like &quot;what kine a tea yuh have?&quot; from other passengers.
