Trinidad Express / CARIBBEAN Airlines pilots said yesterday passengers should expect “chaos” on the air-bridge between Trinidad and Tobago 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 as the pilots said they were concerned about the ATR aircraft. 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 told the Express TTALPA was consulting its legal team on the way forward. “There is mass chaos on the airbridge right now because we have taken a decision to not fly,” a pilot who requested anonymity told the Express yesterday. The pilot 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.
