SUMMARY: The Caribbean is a “graveyard” for airlines over 40 in the past 30 years, with 6 government owned airlines still flying and still burning taxpayers money, destined to never make money because they never change, till now. Cayman Airways, owned by the British Overseas Territory of the Cayman Islands has been changing quietly for years, reducing its debt, modernizing its fleet with 4 x B737-8 (Max8’s), but still dependent on $20+M per year from the government. A new modern fleet will help reduce operating costs but lease rates will be 6 times more than the B737-300’s, and new routes like the latest to Roatan, Hondurans are a good sign of expansion. It is at least a change, the other 5 government owned airlines are ‘business as usual’, politicians sticking their noses into everything they don’t understand, no new initiatives, no new strategy, no new leadership, just sitting around their desks “doing the same things over and over again expecting different results” (Einstein’s definition of insanity) and it applies so well to these 5 perpetual money losers. Only radical change will bring about a brighter future for Government owned Caribbean airlines, its time for surgery to revive them or its time for euthanasia, and cut off their life support (aka taxpayers money) ? one or the other, but things cannot keep going on usual, at some point creditors will have had enough, and then its THE END.
