The plane landed at approximately 6:30 hours this morning (Friday, July 04) from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, after which it was scheduled to leave as a domestic flight to the John F. Kennedy International Airport.
However, this was not to be. Local representative, Captain Gerald Gouveia told iNews that Dynamic Airways decided to use the Miami route as a result of Hurricane Arthur.
He explained that the staff did not turn up to refuel the plane due to the 4th July celebrations in the US. According to Gouveia, by the time the staff showed up, the pilots ran out of duty time and had to get their eight hours of rest.
The flight is now scheduled to leave at 18:00 hours. “This is an unfortunate incident for us,” Gouveia said.
Dynamic Airways hit its first snag last Friday on its inaugural flight to New York, when they fired the ground handler, causing hours of delay and missed connecting flights for its passengers.
