Caribbean Airlines under investigation

Published: Wednesday | October 17, 2012 Comments 0

WASHINGTON (CMC):

The United States Department of Transportation (DoT) has said it is investigating the Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines (CAL) for keeping passengers on an international flight for more than four hours.

The DOT said the near four-and-a-half hour delay occurred on an August 15 CAL flight from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport to Piarco International in Port of Spain.

The DOT's Air Travel Consumer Report states that the only delay on a runway that violated rules implemented in 2010 by the Obama administration, as part of a 'Passenger's Bill of Rights' in August, was the Caribbean Airlines' flight.
