So true……….we’ll be back in time to plant our garden.
We were in Jackson, MI last summer. MI is a nice state…..lots of wineries.
Starting June 23, 2007, National Flag Carrier, Cayman Airways, will begin non-stop service from Grand Cayman to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The three weekly flights will leave New York on Thursday, Sunday and Monday at 9AM and depart Grand Cayman on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 4:10PM.
There has been some criticism that CAL hasn?t loaded its Chicago schedule yet for the peak winter.
?What we?re trying to do is actually look at it more globally in terms of being able to operate Chicago year?round,? he said.
A decision had previously been made at Cayman Airways to make Chicago a winter?only flight, but Mr. Wrightington said that doesn?t make sense.
?It?s a very strong market and what we?re trying to do is develop a better relationship with United Airlines, because that?s their major hub. We?re working with them right now and then will be posting our schedule?
He hopes this can be operational by November, and that once it is, it can be operated on a year?round basis, with at least two trips a week.
P.S. that will be nice, but if they don’t post their schedules in a more timely manner, people will make other reservations–particularly during the holidays when it’s hard to get a seat.
The problem is that the airline tried to cancel with us once and they changed our flight plan two times already. We have already booked lodging and will be paying for at least a day more than we will be there due the the airline changes. We are really hoping there are no more changes!
That is really annoying–you would figure if you were flying direct, that you’d be pretty well set –not a good way to get repeat customers
