It's BA, not CAL, to London for me
It is reported that Transport Minister Devant Maharaj says that Caribbean Airlines (CAL) will drop the London route if not profitable (this before even starting).
I have a child at university and know that you must book early in order to get the best fares. I happily booked on CAL instead of British Airways to go back in September, return in December and back in the peak period in January.
CAL listed six direct flights a week. Before any could be ticketed CAL cancelled all the reservations. The September and December flights were replaced with different dates. January remains blank.
Now Maharaj says he may drop the route if not profitable. Well I know it was not profitable before and cannot be in the current circumstances, with wet-leased aircraft. So I have rebooked on British Airways. That's common sense.
Firing Arthur Lok Jack (Chairman, Guardian), Robert Riley (Chairman, BP), Warner (CEO, Neal and Massy) and replacing them with unqualified party hacks was not common sense.
What qualifies Devant Maharaj to be a senior government minister and keep making stupid statements? Whose fault is this scheduling chaos?
