(CaribWorldNews): Jamaica`s already heavily indebted aircraft, Air Jamaica,will have to shell out US$180,000 to Uncle Sam.  The carrier has been forced to pay up to resolve a civil action by the U.S. attorney`s office in Brooklyn over maintenance issues that eventually led to an aircraft making an emergency landing at John F.

The U.S. Attorney`s Office of the Eastern District of New York announced yesterday that the action arose out of Air Jamaica`s `negligent maintenance of one of its aircraft` which resulted in the emergency landing.
