WHY The Change Of CO 1636/1637 To Barbados

Fri Jun 17, 2005 3:55 am

I did the jig when CO announced they were flying to BGI. I could reach my favorite destination in good shape.

Now they've gone and change their flights from departing EWR and arriving back in the same day to overnighting of plane in BGI.

Does anyone know why they've decided on this change? I just don't want to go back to flying AA

What's the "jig"

I don't know what you're asking ... "?" Do you want to know why the aircraft is overnighting? Schedule change I guess: Does it matter?

Hell yes it matters! They used to have a morning dept from EWR sometime around 10:00AM. With a return leaving BGI around 15:00 the same day. Now they dept EWR at 15:00 and then overnight in BGI. Beach time has been drastically reduced on both ends.

I used to be able to fly down on Saturday mornings, for sand, sun and sex and return sunday afternoon. can't do that now.

Don't want to fly AA back to NYC. Damn! loks like i now have no choice. Woe! woe! woe!

Fly BW. They have morning departures from JFK at 7:45 on Saturdays, return departing BGI Sundays at 17:40. Then again, that's BW time.

Gotta agree with Ahlfors- BWIA only publishes a schedule to tell how late they are running!

Thanks Ahlfors, But since I'm on a strict schedule- I need something a bit more reliable than BW

Tjwgrr, Some times it has been, but only a very few times
