CARIBBEAN Airlines pilots said yesterday passengers should expect “chaos” as many of them have decided to not operate the company’s ATR aircraft which they say have been experiencing constant technical problems.
Pilots said passengers travelling on CAL flights to Caribbean routes and Tobago should expect delays and disruptions for their own safety, CAL uses five ATRs.
Some of the destinations they service are Tobago, St Lucia, St Vincent, Grenada and Barbados.
The Trinidad and Tobago Airline Pilots Association (TTALPA) yesterday held a meeting where between 30 to 40 pilots voiced concerns about technical problems with the ATR aircraft.
Aviation sources in Trinidad say TTALPA was consulting its legal team on the way forward.
The pilots said when a warning light comes on in an aircraft the crew goes into emergency mode and it is traumatic to keep putting passengers through this ordeal.
