Caribbean Dreamin'

Starting July 13, Air Jamaica will add a red-eye flight from New York City to Grenada. Just think about it: you head home from your busy day, hit the airport, take a snooze, and wake up on a gorgeous Caribbean island … not too shabby if you ask me!

Flights leave Kennedy airport at 12:15 a.m. and arrive in Grenada the following morning at 6:30 a.m.  I think it’s a novel idea for a last-minute vacation, and I can imagine it would unfold something like this. You hit the bar after happy hour; enjoy some half-price appetizers and pitchers of margaritas when someone brings up how they didn’t think they would be working in a cube day in and day out. You chime in saying, "let’s go somewhere, let’s go somewhere tropical and warm and open up a smoothie shop and just live without the man infringing on our basic human rights to enjoy life."  You cab it back to your apartment, throw some mismatched (sort of) clean clothes in a bag, grab your passport, trek out to JFK, and hop on a last-minute flight to the islands to start your new life.

You wake up the next morning at the airport with a slight headache realizing it might be a little harder to open a smoothie shop in a place you have never been before. But you enjoy beaches, the laid-back vibe of the island (you might even get your hair braided and buy a crocheted beret a la Bob Marley) and return to NYC at 11:30 a few days later before heading to your stuffy office job relaxed and ready for the man to beat you down a little more.

This little scenario is the perfect way to end a long week of a 9 to 5 lifestyle. I laughed out loud at the idea of opening a smoothie shop while intoxicated. This is every cubies' daydream.

Air Jamaica will be officially closed and replaced by Trinidad-owned Caribbean Airlines from April 12. There will be an interim arrangement where Air Jamaica planes and crews will continue to operate until Caribbean Airlines can take over completely, but Caribbean Airlines will be named the National Carrier and Air Jamaica will be phased out.
