    Boycott For Caribbean Airlines Coming

    The youth arm of the Opposition People's National Party (PNP) is calling for a boycott of Trinidad's Caribbean Airlines if the government does not give due consideration to the bid by the pilots' group to acquire Air Jamaica.

    In a statement Tuesday night, the PNP Youth Organization
    said it takes issue with the government's unwillingness to engage the Jamaica airline Pilots' Association (JALPA) in its bid to take over and operate the airline.

    Damion Crawford, PNPYO President, is suggesting that Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora boycott Caribbean Airlines, if the Bruce Golding led administration proceeds with the sale of Air Jamaica without giving JALPA an equal opportunity.

    "The government has been treating the workers of Air Jamaica with scant regard which is reminiscent of the way that they've treated all the other worker including teachers, nurses etc. We believe that the people of this country should therefore take affirmative action as it relates to what the government is doing and how they're doing it and boycott Caribbean Airlines if Air Jamaica is sold to it," he said.

    On Tuesday, JALPA suffered a setback in its bid for Air Jamaica.

    The Office of the Contractor General said it will step in if the government bows to pressure and breaches the law in order to facilitate the Air Jamaica staff's bid to acquire the ‘Lovebird'.

    That will not be hard at all. Airliners fly into uncontrolled airspace/airports all the time.

    NO. Spirt is not run by the US goverment, nor did you see Americans gloating at the possible purchase of Air jamaica. Very tacky and in poor taste by some Trinis. .

    What you need to realize that the 6 or 7 Trinis on this site who continuously talk about the Air Jamaica sale are not representative of the country at all. Most of these people don't even live in TNT. The average Trinbagonian is oblivious to this Air Jamaica sale and most people would not really care either way...trust me on that.

    the sad thing is that the average trini have no clue about this whole issue nor do they care (which is really sad if you ask me) i wish they did because i for one don't think we had NO business being involved in any this! esp. with the problems we have! and i think the comments people make here is for kicks but i could be very wrong!
