Hey guys,

Just got an email today from Caribbean Airlines stating they are ending their code share agreement with British Airways on the POS-LGW route effective March 27th 2010. They said they are looking at alternative non stop services. Does anyone have any more information on this, or if they are actually getting a wide bodied aircraft to operate this route? Since the aquisition of Air Jamaica, I think we may be in for a big surprise.

Well if a non-stop POS to London flight started, I wonder what impact that would have on the 5xWeekly BA LGW-SVF-POS flight?

Let's Go British Caledonian!

Well the codeshare arrangement was agreed to for 3 years in the first instance and started in 2007. In addition to the POS - LGW route, the agreement covered LGW - BGI. BA started by flying 3 weekly flights LGW - BGI - POS and return. In 2008 it delinked POS and BGI but kept the BW codeshares on 2 (later 3) additional LGW - BGI flights weekly which operated alongside BA's long-established daily services to BGI. POS services were rerouted via UVF and this remains in place, with frequency being upped to the 5 weekly now seen.

BW has no long-haul aircraft so it would be a while before any new flights begin to the United Kingdom. Should the merger with JM be completed, there may well be an opportunity as the economy of scale could allow them to operate 3 wdiebodies for LGW routes. One could fly from POS / BGI / ANU / UVF to LGW, another be based in KIN and fly from there and MBJ and the third be a spare available to increase frequency as required. We will have to wait and see.


Hop to it, fly for life!

With Caribean Air truly becoming what its name means it should look into good used A330's or 777-200ER's. It could fly daily to the UK even if 3 times from Jamaica & 3 times from BGI.
