Eager to see how this new service will turn out. I still think a CAL/JM code share arrangement PEK/LAX/MBJ and PVG/LAX/MBJ would have been better alternatives to get Chinese tourists to Jamaica but that's my personal opinion.

That is one reason for pushing the MEX-MBJ flight to Jan...To finalise the flight details and packages with travel agents...

Aviation Update..

KX's saga continues...

CAL still looking at aircraft options

The two Embraer 170 jets that were under consideration for lease by Cayman Airways to enhance airlift into the Cayman Islands for this coming winter season, have been ruled out.

Minister for Tourism Charles Clifford announced this as part of his State of the Industry Address at the eighth Annual Tourism Conference Thursday at the Westin Casuarina Resort.

But negotiations are still ongoing, with two other aircraft options being considered, the Minister said later.

Cayman Airways is engaged in negotiations to acquire additional equipment to supplement airlift to the destination for the winter season.

The Minister said that assuming successful negotiations, “Cayman Airways will be able to expand its tourism routes into the United States as well as into Central America, providing new opportunities for tourism from both central and South American countries.”

Airlift to Cayman Brac would be further enhanced with the additional equipment, said the Minister.

“I can confirm that of the equipment being considered, the Embraer 170s have been eliminated from consideration for this winter season,” the Minister said.

Later at the post–Cabinet press briefing, when asked about the issue, the Minister said, ““The Embraer 170s were certainly suitable for some of the routes we proposed, but not all of the routes.”

In fact, the Minister said they are still in active negotiations for equipment to ramp up for this winter season.

Explaining why they abandoned the Embraer 170s option the Minister said, “When you’re evaluating the aircraft types for specific routes, you have to look at a number of factors.”

He gave an example that when Cayman Airways first started routes like Chicago, the first flight to Chicago was done with a 737–200.

“That wouldn’t have been the most appropriate aircraft because there are load restrictions on (that aircraft) travelling that distance. Certain times of the year, on hotter days as an example, there’s a much higher fuel burn and so your load restrictions are even further restricted. So, a 737–200 on a Chicago route, as an example, a 114–seater aircraft, could potentially be restricted to a maximum of 90 seats out of Grand Cayman, so all of that has implications on revenue.”

Based on that you have to essentially run the numbers and see whether it works, he said.

Referring to the Embraer 170s, he said, “So when the numbers were run on those, the decision was made, very late last (Wednesday) night actually not to pursue that particular option. But that doesn’t mean that we’re not pursuing other options for equipment.”

Supplemental airlift is not off the table, he asserted.

“The objective for us is to find the most suitable aircraft that can serve the entire network so that you realise those fuel efficiencies.”

Back in May the Minister had announced that two 50–seater Saab turbo prop aircraft were to be acquired, but in June, because of the aviation fuel crisis, he said they were re–evaluating the decision and looking more towards 50 to 70–seater jets.

The Minister said the jets would give more flexibility to access more markets in the US in an aviation climate in which many US airlines are cutting domestic service and therefore access flights to Cayman’s main gateways.

The Minister has said that the jet option would be less expensive than acquiring the Saabs, which were not available for lease and would have had to have been purchased outright.

The private sector, the Cayman Islands Tourism Association, has given its full support to the acquisition of smaller jets and the potential addition of new routes, which, they believe, will boost tourism.

At the tourism conference, the Minister noted that Cayman Airways is engaged in developing a policy for medium to long term fleet planning.

“These critical steps will protect Cayman Airways’ viability by allowing it to assess its route network utilizing more fuel efficient and scale appropriate equipment, but they will also sustain our tourism industry and the livelihood of those engaged in the sector and by extension the stability of our entire economy.”

The Minister said that faced with a global airline crisis and with so many airlines cutting airlift to the Caribbean, Cayman is leading a Caribbean Tourism Organisation task force looking into increasing airlift to the region.

Some people argue that the GOJ deal with AA would have been less of an issue if the DFW route was the only one being subsidized, as opposed to ORD and MIA which JM currently serves as well. At the end of the day the mare fact that subsidies are going out to other airline (s) it would still irk many Jamaicans and other JM personnel regardless of which route (s) were subsidized for a foreign carrier (s).

True. JM's current situation at the moment would certainly be a factor. If things were different being JM is already a regular at LAX it would have been a convenient option ( for those who have U.S. Visa ). But alternatives are always good. Save the Chinese tourist the cost of obtaining a US visa and hassle.

I have been looking at AA's new menu...I hope the genius who created the menu took into consideration the various religious sects in the region who are not consumers of pork.....


Since the A300s are going..Have they decided on a replacement aircraft for PAP?...Having 3 757s from MIA is a huge loss in capacity and cargo.....This leaves the door open for another US carrier to start services to PAP....Lets see if DL will look at this oppurtunity...

Spirit is already there too. AA will increase frequencies on MIA-PAP and use the 763.

Despite the loss of the A300s, AA will continue to expand capacity in the region. They are getting 70+ new 738s that will be used to the region (replacing S80s that currently cannot be used to the region) and with 757s moving to trans-Atlantic duty, 763s will be free'd up for short-haul out of Miami. AA does most things wrong, but giving up capacity in this region won't be one of their mistakes. People should stop reading into the A300 retirement as an opportunity for other carriers, because it isn't (that's not to say opportunities don't exist for other, because they do, but AA's A300 retirement won't be creating any).

The 763 on MIA-POS is already back in the schedules, BTW. AA never wanted to remove it, but had to. Now with some scheduling tweaking, it's back.

Quoting HummingBird (Reply 7):

From JFK, it could do great, but PAP-USA traffic is so ridiculously skewed to MIA, FLL, and NYC (with some traffic from BOS, MCO, and TPA), that I don't think ATL-PAP would ever work unless it was a regional jet.

If DL wants ATL-PAP they should not make the mistake of flying it with a regional jet, Haïtians fly with a lot of baggage, so it'll have to be a regional jet restricted to half the passenger capacity or a B737 with lots of cargo space. DL could also check JFK-PAP, remember DL flies to GEO not from their mighty ATL hub but from JFK.

General trend seems to be that the airlines value the lower fuel bill, ramp staff salaries, less work at check-in over the funds that they can make carrying all those bags. Most incentives in place now for checked baggage is to discourage the practise, so????

I agree 100%. However at the same time, one cannot be excited about a fellow Caribbean island being linked with Mexico City. If only Jamaica was non-stop from POS!!

I was having a think about JM and BW's future relationship. If Jm got the right sized a/c, perhaps they could fly to for example BZE, PTY, BOG etc. BW in turn could start a non-stop flight to KIN to connect with those flights, giving JM the feed to sustain those flights. Pax could also be fed via KIN to other US cities like ORD, LAX etc from POS, as yet another option to avoid connecting in MIA. This would not only help strengthen Caricom relations but also foster the idea of neighbourhood, rather than always searching extra-regionally. I obviously have not fully worked this out, but it is just a thought, not a labour of love so feel free to criticize.

It sure would be nice- less baggage woes and mroe comfortable!

What do you guys think of the POS budget presented yesterday. As far as I ca tell it's pretty much unexciting, somewhat irresponsible (not reigning in spending), and a rehash of many old budgets. Of course what is most shocking is what our potential for savings is and the fact that we only save about 1/2 of what we should be saving. Anyways, CAL's fixed price subsidized fuel will remain for FY 08/09.

...Many thanks to HummingBird for starting another episode of Caribbean Aviation!....

Do persons really want to come to the Caribbean, if they do, all local carriers need to do is to establish a bridge, on the East coast of the US, Eurpope is further away and much more expensive, especially since our main influence is the UK, MAN may be better definately not LHR.
AA, BA, DL, CO etc are all creating or joining alliances to compliment each other and reduce overlap flying, what makes the Caribbean any different?
MIA, FLL, ATL, NYC should be full of Caribbean carriers, let the US Carriers use other port of entry.

Just a thought.

Remember, DL's service to GEO is subsidised by Guyanese officials, however I think they will start service to PAP eventually; as they just keep on deferring their "intentions" on flying JFK-BOG-JFK. Service to BOG was scheduled to begin in December, now Delta wants to start service in January.

On a side note, I was thinking about CM's route to PUJ, and I think they will do well at PUJ due to increasing leisure demand from South America. For some reason, PUJ is very popular at the moment. Also, LAN intends on increasing flights to PUJ.

AA will put the new 738s on the MIA-POS route next year, along with the 752. The reason that AA 1818 was delayed, (for 22 hours) at POS last Wednesday was because a worker accidentally deployed the emergency slide when the door was closed so the aircraft was taken out of service. The new schedule should be out by February. Also, MIA will see new AA European flights soon; 150 International Flight Attendants are needed at MIA and all those senior Chicago based F/A's are transferring to MIA!!!
I think I might have called the wrong number when I was in POS; my phone gives me trouble down there for some reason. I'll be going to POS frequently due to BW's great fares and convenient schedule. If your ever at MIA send me a PM. This was one of my first trips to Trinidad that went smoothly, I had a good time both in POS and BGI. Thanks to Caribbean Airlines and their on-time schedule, (we left BGI 15 minutes ahead of schedule)! I sent Caribbean Airlines an email about their courteous and exemplary service. Even on the short BGI-POS sector, Champagne was flowing and your glass is always topped up without even asking! The crews are extremely well trained, reminded me of BA First!

Hi guys,
finally decided to join this highly active forum after about 18 months of religiously reading through these threads.I hope I can contribute in whatever capacity I can.

First off,congratulations to Inbound on your upgrade!

Scl767,the pics you posted for your TR aren't showing.Could you possibly post them again?



It is what we think we know already that prevents us from learning.......

28 Beeweel15 : Not because of the charters but because of the routing - JFK-GEO-POS-GEO-JFK. The flight was very unpopular with folks going to POS.

54 Caribbean484 : I very much doubt that they will ever use such 757 to any Caribbean route, these a/c are premium flights and are geared towards the European markets.
