Hello everyone. I decided to take a trip to Port Of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago and decided to fly on Caribbean Airlines on the JFK-POS-JFK route. Being that it was my first trip to POS wanted to give BW a try. Flights departed on time, nice friendly crew and a meal that I wasn't expecting since all airlines nowadays are cutting onboard services/products. Since then, (June '09), I have flown with them 4 times and have no complaints, the service is good, even better than US carriers that currently fly there from JFK...

General Flight Overview:
Airline: Caribbean Airlines
Flight number: 521
Origin: John F. Kennedy Int'l Airport (JFK)

The Flight:
My Inflight Meal:
Consisted of; JFK-POS; egg and cheese omelet, potato wedges with tomato sauce, yogurt, croissant w/ butter, and a beverage of choice. On The return; POS-JFK; consisted of; chicken lasagna, Mexican chips, chocolate waffle, and beverage of choice.

In conclusion my trips with Caribbean Airlines have been very pleasant. Interior of aircraft have been clean and maintained in good condition. Legroom is OK, but hey it's good enough for such flight. Inflight service is good as well as the friendliness of the Cabin Crew and ground personnel at JFK and in POS. Hope you enjoyed reading this short TR. Well, that's it, [for now]...

Feedback welcome and appreciated. Thank you.

Nice little report!

The in-flight service on BW looked very generous to me, I didn't know that there were airlines in the NA/Carrebian region that still offered this kind of service  Wink
Did they serve alcoholic drinks for free, or did you have to pay for them?

Thanks for sharing!  Smile

Great TR! I agree with your statements in regards to the in-flight service, cheerful cabin attendants and helpful ground staff. Thanks for posting this TR! Also, BW provides comment cards onboard all of their flights and the airline appreciates customer feedback.

DL is the only other airline on the route, but their in-flight service is not comparable to BW's at all. I'm glad that you enjoyed your trips on BW and hope that will you will continue to fly with Caribbean Airlines. BW will increase frequency on the route to 4x daily effective 12/14/09.

Did you know that you can even order your meal 48 hours before your flight?

Alcohol on this flight was available for a small fee, even though you could purchase it if you requested it, as the crew doesn't mention this service, not sure why.

SCL767, I am seeing that they plan to operate a 767 in December. Do you know if it's a leased North American aircraft, or do they plan to get a lease from Boeing and operate it themselves?
