Cayman Airways has been approved the fly to Boston. They will operate a sesonal non-stop service between Boston and Grand Cayman once a week with a 737 (-300, I assume). Service starts 5 November 2004, and runs through 2 April 2005. Flights arrive Friday evenings, and depart Boston on Saturday morning.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll try and capture this bird sometime in December...right now, I am either heading up to BOS on either the 10th or 11th of December, so I might have to head up Friday night to catch this bird.

Are they planning any special marketing / advertising to Bostonians. Does any other carrier compete on the BOS - GCM route?

MAH4546: Nice to see a non-stop and another livery at BOS.

Kim777fan: I know that US, AA, and DL serve GCM, but with a stop in Charlotte, Miami, or Atlanta, respectively.

Now that you mention it, I believe JM serves that market too, with a stop at MBJ.

All six cartel carriers actually fly to GCM, two of them seasonally. Including the services you mentioned:

AA: 3x MIA; Sa JFK
US: 1x CLT; SaSu PHL
UA: Sa ORD; Sa IAD (winter only)
CO: 4 weekly IAH; Sa EWR
NW: Sa MSP; 5w DTW (winter only)
DL: 1x ATL + Sa ATL

In the past, NW has offered MEM-GCM and AA has flown BOS-GCM.

But, this would be the only current non-stop service to GCM..... Unless, UA, US, or DL wanted to step in and copycat the service like they seem to do other places when a new service starts up.

No it isn't. You cannot book it past 2 April. It might go year-round, eventually, but it isn't yet. Even their DOT application said it was seasonal. Also, you are correct that it will operate twice a week, though res systems are only showing the Saturday evening/Sunday morning flight during peak holiday periods.

US is 8x weekly to CLT.

GCM is one of the destinations US has been likely considering out of BOS, but US has the problem of connecting pax at BOS, and international arrivals being in a different terminal. (This already affects their MBJ and CUN flights.) Now that AUA has seen an increase in frequency, I think that STT would be an "easier" new destination than GCM or SXM.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Why doesnt AA consider adding a GCM nonstop from DFW or ORD, I am sure that the connecting traffic alone could support it, as for most of us GCM is a two connector through MIA. I would think that the traffic would be there, and the yields are good from this market.

AA simply doesn't care to operate Caribbean services from DFW or ORD. The only Caribbean flight from either is to their San Juan hub (and AA also flies DFW-NAS, though Nassau is not in the Caribbean). The two-connection problem is going to be slowly elimated, because AA is building up their domestic network out of MIA very heavily.
