  1. sometime cancellation make us really mad, but if it has good reason for our safety it’s the right decision.

  2. True, but these guys promised not to be like BWIA and here it is 2 months after re-starting and Same Story, Different Day check the link to the release on original story within this item, also – the real issue is what is this ramp problem, was there a collision and if so …. how? I emailed them for clarity and the request was fwd’d to the Dir. Of Mktg; makes me wonder if I’ll really hear anything?

  3. Please note that our on-time performance this month despite closure of the airport last weekend in Port-of-Spain is above 80% for the month of October and was 92% in September with 10 days of 100% on-time performance during the month. So far this year we have achieved an 84% overall on-time performance. Also note that our luggage claims are below 1 per thousand. These two performance indicators clearly point out that Caribbean Airlines is moving in the right direction and is among the best performing airlines worldwide.
