Pilots on the regional are not too happy about that decision (especially captains) cause the airline wants to transfer both captains and first officers as first officers on the A330's.
A group of them decided to launch a new airline by the 1st quarter of 2013 using 2 B-737-700's based in PTP to fly the current routes operated with the E190 (PTP, FDF, PAP, SDQ, CAY, BEL, HAV).
They are in talks with politics of Guadeloupe(PTP), Martinique(FDF) & French Guyana(CAY)
For now, the name kept for this new airline is : FRENCH CARIBBEAN AIRLINES.
As a reminder, TX has 3 ATR-72-500s and just received on the 25th of NOV a brand new A333 (F-HPTP) with a new business class (Madras Class), with a total of 5 A330s (including one -200)
They're adding a 2nd ORY-PAP(Haiti), a 3rd ORY-SXM, a 4th ORY-CAY / Weekly
To be continued ....
