I wish to protest the exorbitant fares currently being charged by our national airline.
Cayman Airways’ website on Monday, 23 Nov., shows a return airfare to Miami of US$830 for a combined distance of 998 miles.
On the American Airlines website, their return fare from Miami to London Heathrow, a combined distance of more than 8,000 miles, is $711.
Why should the Cayman taxpayer, who already subsidises CAL in excess of $10 million a year, be held to ransom when there is no alternative method of getting to Miami? This is simply extortion.
