JSC alarmed as one CAL pilot takes 100 free jumpseat trips in calendar year

Executives of state-owned Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL) have been called upon to explain why one employee made 100 free trips in a calendar year, on personal business.

The question was raised by the chairman of the Joint Select Committee (JSC) on State Enterprises, Independent Senator David Small, as CAL's executive appeared before the JSC today.

Small referred to CAL documents which showed that the employee, a pilot, made the trips using what is referred to as a "jump-seat".

"Someone is using CAL as Air-Uber. This smacks of abuse of privilege," Small said.
