Dispute over airline purchase.
Wesley Sampson, former president of the Jamaica Airline Pilots Association (JALPA) said Nov. 19 he sent an open letter to Spirit Airlines, asking it to drop its bid to buy Air Jamaica and disclose the purchase price to the current and former Air Jamaica employees who are determined to keep the country's only airline under Jamaican ownership, even if it means buying it themselves. Sampson and his organization, Mayday Air Jamaica say if Spirit does not walk away from the deal, Mayday and its supporters would picket at Air Jamaica in Miami on Dec. 15. "According to the United Nations' Human Development Index, Jamaica is one of the ten poorest countries in the world," Sampson stated. "Air Jamaica is our one remaining national treasure, our only resource to hand down to the children of Jamaica in hopes of a better future for them," he said. Details: Wesley Sampson.
