I used to love to fly Air Jamaica, despite some of their problems it was always fun flying to or from Jamaica with a plane load of Jamaicans. How could you not like an airline that gave out free champagne and played reggae music? The coolest part was being in your seat and looking over to see some reggae performer. I remember one flight Everton Blender was sitting in front of me and water was dripping down on him from the air conditioner above, I tapped him on the shoulder and told him about it, he thanked me and then he changed seats. In Kingston you would always run into people at the airport waiting for their flight, Ken Boothe, Judy Mowatt, Carlene Davis, Frankie Paul, Beenie Man, I would see all kinds of people.
