(I am so tired of AA/Eagle’s playing games with Caribbean routes, always starting up a service in some island to compete with the routes of other airines trying to break into the Caribbean, under pricing them, putting non stop service where the competitor offers connecting flights etc. and as soon as AA has forced those airlines out of service AA/Eagle stops it’s service with the idiotic reasons that fool no one. This has been done to BWIA/LIAT and Air Jamaica for as long as I can remember. Wake up Caribbean).
