Check or Carry for Delta FLT - ATL to Montego Bay?

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my stepdaughter and step daughter-in-law (both in their 20's) to Montego Bay this weekend. We only have three days in Jamaica, so we want to make the most of every minute. My question is whether we should check our luggage or carry on? I never check luggage anymore because I am a light packer and have suffered through delayed, lost and stolen luggage in my 50+ years of flying..
We fly out of ATL on Delta on a non-stop flight, arriving in Montego Bay around 2:00 pm. It is an hour ride to our hotel. (DH and I flew to Montego Bay two years ago and stayed at the same hotel, so we know the real length of time to the resort.) Does anyone know the average wait time to retrieve checked bagged on a Friday afternoon at the Montego Bay airport? I think the girls would like to check their luggage, but they won't if it will significantly delay our getting to the hotel.
Thank you for your advice.
