    That’s because BA have the monopoly and charge outrageous fares to Cayman. CITA should be seeking to encourage new airlines from the UK and Europe in order to force prices down and make the Cayman Islands more appealing to over 500 million potential passengers. And don’t forget, unlike the US, most UK and European citizens have passports and do travel on a regular basis with a 4 week minimum vacation entitlement.
    Where we have catastrophically lost, the Bahamas have gained, and ironicallly they use the same aircraft that comes here.
