We have made our plans for going "home" the end of March. Upgraded to First Class air to be able to better keep distance in the plane. Are going to use Rocky taxi again as we hear their drivers wear a mask. For departure, we figure Club Mobay will help us avoid crowds while we wait to leave MBJ.

Wondering if the Club Mobay system will get us through MBJ faster on arrival with the covid restrictions and immigration and baggage crowds.

Re: taxis - I think all licensed taxi drivers wear masks (or at least HAVE them)..... and surely will if you ask them to. There are checkpoints on the road, staffed by soldiers ensuring that drivers have masks on and adhere to other rules.

Re: CM, it appeared that CM folks got thru the medical screening about 20-30 minutes faster than we did in early November. We waited in line for about 45 minutes. Everyone had masks on, and most people were doing pretty well at keeping 5-6 ft of distance between parties.

Don't assume First Class will have more room- I did first class on AA from Philly to Mobay on 1 Dec and 5 of the 8 seats (AirBus219) were filled - where in the rear of the plane, only about 20% of the seats were taken. FYI. Check the seat map frequently if this is a major issue for you.

Club Mobay is always worth it IMO; a lot depends on when you land, how many planes landed before you etc, etc. I don't take chances - expedited thru all the way including Customs. I also recommend having your test results, Travel Auth and Quarantine Order (signed) in paper form - it's just quicker that way.

Thanks for the replies and confirmation.
Yes, we wear masks all the time and our plan is to "Mask-up" in the parking lot in Cleveland and not take them off till in the room at Hedo. We know about needing the print-out of test results and will be watching for any updates to the Jamaican Ministry of Health requirements as covered here

We can get the Vax starting 1/26 just have to hope the line moves faster but since we don't fly out till end March I expect some Jamaican requirements will change.

At least the AA 1st class is not 3 seats.
