Resignations, delays hit Fly Jamaica
KINGSTON – A number of flight delays have rocked Fly Jamaica Airways Limited over the past month, leaving passengers angry at the inconvenience.
Yesterday, news emerged that a flight to New York from Georgetown, Guyana, scheduled to leave last Friday, was delayed for two days.
Before that, on July 10, the Kingston to New York flight was cancelled, an irate passenger told the Jamaica Observer.
“People were at the airport at 2:30 a.m. for a 5:30 a.m. departure. Up to 9:30 nobody was talking to my family and they didn’t know what was happening. Eventually they were rerouted on another airline,” the passenger said.
Yet another passenger told the Observer that a flight scheduled to depart New York on June 26 arrived in Jamaica on June 28 due to repairs and maintenance on a plane.
Yesterday, when the Observer sought to get a comment from the airline, we were told the three founding members of staff –– Jamaicans Lloyd Tai, Christine Steele and Nadine Silvera –– had resigned.
Their resignations were said to have spanned the period November 2013 to March 2014.
The Observer also learnt that Sophia Chang, the former security manager, had also resigned during that period.
