100 passengers left behind after Dynamic overbooks

One hundred passengers, who were scheduled to travel to Guyana with Dynamic Airways will not make it home for Christmas this year after they were left stranded at the John F Kennedy (JFK) Airport yesterday morning.

The snag triggered a protest at the airport and passengers were seen holding up placards, the New York Post reported. According to information received, the passengers were set to travel to Guyana yesterday but received the bad news when they arrived at the US airport.

The New York Post stated that the flight was apparently overbooked and a Port Authority Police Department (PAPD) source had released information that the airline would not have any other plane available until December 27.

The Post added that around 9 am yesterday half of the irate passengers were booking hotels, but 45 customers remained at the airport terminal to protest.

All attempts to contact local representative of the airline Gerry Gouveia were futile.

The airline, since it arrived in Guyana, has been hit by constant delays and technical problems.

A few days ago, another set of passengers were stranded at the JFK airport and it was reported that there had been mechanical issues. The travellers had arrived a day after they were scheduled to land in Guyana.
