Flight Attendant Fired After Falsely Claiming She Was ‘Held Hostage’ During Quarantine In Jamaica.

A JetBlue Airways employee whose Jamaican vacation turned into an international controversy after she claimed she was being held hostage in the Caribbean nation is no longer with the U.S.-based carrier.


Derek Dombrowski, a spokesperson with JetBlue Airways, said Kalina Collier has been let go after an investigation.

“We continue to offer our apologies for the frustration and concern this incident has caused and reiterate our confidence in the health protocols Jamaica has put in place,” he said.
