There are umpteen rumours of corruption and mismanagement at Air Jamaica of which the unwitting taxpayer is unlikely to ever know the full truth. And now alleges the opposition PNP, the new Air Jamaica chairwoman ordered a plane to be turned back on the runway, so as to pick up a friend who was running late.
And it’s not as if Air Jamaica needs help being delayed. And it gets better…apparently the passenger was yet another one of those non-paying ones.
Ah the privilege of flying with the national airline: queuing for hours; getting stuck in mud after taxiing off the runway; missed connecting flights; arrogant and unaccountable executives and not forgetting…paying your income tax for the privilege of it all.
