AIR JAMAICA delayed flights

I've been tracking various AJ flights and have found many delays.

What does one do while waiting 7 or 8 hours for their flight?

Can you leave the terminal if you've already checked in for your flight in MBJ. I remember years ago, feeling like a captive and not able to leave the terminal.

I'm thinking about checking in for the flight and leaving the building if the flight is delayed. Has anyone done this?

Based on my past 3 experiences (within a year), AJ flights to Jamaica have always been on time BUT AJ flights from Jamaica to the US have been delayed for at least over 2 hours. Yes, definitely an inconvenience and annoying.

Sangster Airport sometimes give you an option of putting you at one of the closer hotels while waiting for your flight (depending on how long the delay is). Another option they give you, depending on flight and seat availability is sending you to another airline, and possibly another airport close to your destination.
