Question For Bwia Enthuiasts

Thu Jul 26, 2001 11:25 am

Just wondering which BWIA aircraft carried the name "sunjet Tobago". For example:
9Y-TGJ> "Sunjet Trinidad"
I know they had a few md80's in the early 90's that is not with them anymore. If I could remember the registrations were:
9Y-THN, 9Y-THT, 9Y-THU and 9Y-THY. Maybe it's one of those.
Just Qurious...

While on the topic, which BWIA aircraft had " Penny Commisioning" on it? Was it one of the MD-80's?



"was there ever a sunjet Grenada?"

I don't think so, but there was an Air Greneda in the mid '80s using a 707 to JFK and MIA. I actually flew on it once. Service didn'tidn't last too long though.
Only now do I appreciate the ride on the 707 with those screaming Pratts!

There has to be a Sunjet Greneda because it is a well known destination for BWIA for a long time now. Since "Chepos" confirmed that Sunjet Tobago was 9Y-THN then my guest would be THT, THU, or THY. Take a look at this picture. Under the pilot's window see if you can recognize the name.

By the way, "Penny Commisioning" was a DC-9 not a MD-83. I don't know the registration though. What I know is:
9Y-TGJ> TRINIDAD
9Y-TGN> BARBADOS
9Y-THA> ANTIGUA
N3140D> ST.LUCIA
9Y-THQ> GUYANA
9Y-THR> JAMAICA
9Y-THV> ST.KITTS (no longer with BWEE)
9Y-THW> DOMINICA
9Y-THX> ANGUILLA
