Cayman Airways - Customer service

The team at MIA is completely disorganized, vaguely rude, and caused me to wait an extra hour outside of security (where there is no available seating or decent amenities) because of this misdirection. They told me I had to get out of line and wait for a later time for my flight to start - waited right next to the line. Realized as the flight that had been getting checked in was close to departure and a huge line still - IT WAS MY FLIGHTS LINE! Had they not booted me I would have been in the front but here I am, wasting even more time due to their poor directions and lack of concern or consistency. I do not plan on flying with cayman again if I can at all avoid it. 3 flights now with Cayman and I have been consistently dissatisfied but this really took the cake today.

Desired outcome: Fix your broken system in MIA

Jan 01, 2022

Its ended up being 2 hour delay in line. Not 1. The single attendant just up and left for 35 minutes at one point. They kept letting people who complained cut line, thus making us honest folk further delayed standing on the concrete floors. Then one finally through security (total time waiting in checkin line for me was 4 hours 40 minutes) I get to the gate and find the plane and flight crew but we still haven’t left an hour after departure time because of the airport staff. This is a glaring level of incompetence and frankly makes me nervous to even fly on this airline. Not going to have my ride at GCM because of this horrendous delay, not even sure how I will get to my destination. Beyond disgusted.

The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer’s satisfaction.

Cayman Airways - Refund due to Cayman Islands not open to US travelers

My trip to the Cayman Islands was cancelled months ago due to the Islands were not open to US travelers. I was only given a credit and not a refund for my flight. I do not know if I will be traveling to the Caymans again, so a credit does not help. I have sent MANY emails requesting a refund, which every other airlines has providing due to Covid closings. Why can I not get a refund for my round trip flights? Right now, I have NO desire to ever go to the Cayman Islands because of my experience with Cayman Airways. This is a poor way to treat customers.
Below is the flight information that I did have and the cost of my ticket:
12/25/21 - Flight #KX4425 - from Grand Cayman to Little Cayman
1/1/22 - Flight #KX4422 - from Little Cayman - stop over in Cayman Brac - to Grand Cayman
Total price - $184.38

Desired outcome: REFUND


Cayman Airways - Waiting five weeks for a refund

Cayman Airways - complaining about a flight attendant on flight 601 on saturday may 18,2019 from jamaica to cayman islands.

My name is Tracey Black and I traveled on flight 601 on Saturday morning with seven other family members to visit a convention held by Bishop Dolbert Clarke. This was my first time traveling with your airline and I am very disappointed at the way one of your flight attendant communicated with me and other persons on the flight.
Her facial expressions and tone was not pleasant. It was as if she did not want us on the flight. My daughter was overlooked and was not given a drink and I got her attention and ask that for a drink for my daughter and the way she responded to me was very condescending.
I have traveled other countries and have used other airlines and the service of a flight attendant was never like this. I had to call the flight attendant and spoke with her about it. She apologized and said she would speak with her.
When a service is paid for, it is expected to be given in kind spirit irrespective of who you are and where you are from. Truthfully I felt as though I was looked down on. I know for a fact that I was talked down to and I don't appreciate it.
Thanks much for hearing me out.

Cayman Airways - Checkin service.

Yesterday I flew out on AC972 to Toronto from Grand Cayman. I had a connecting flight to Kingston, Ontario and needed to clear customs before that flight. I asked the woman at the checkin counter to please put a priority sticker on my bag. She said I had enough time for the bag to be transferred to the connecting flight. I told her I would really appreciate it as I had trouble on my incoming flight and my bag was lost for 8 days. During this interaction she tilted her head, leaned over on the kiosk and said, are you raising your voice to me. She was very confrontational and I was quite taken a back. I told her no I was not and that it is not my style. I told her I would appreciate the sticker. She had no compassion or understanding given my previous experience on the incoming flight. I found her behaviour to be rude and inappropriate. I did not feel comfortable raising this at the time as I was afraid she would not allow me to fly. I had a simple request, I have never requested this and only did because of the previous delay. She did end up putting the sticker on my bag, for which I told her I appreciated it very much. This was an upsetting interaction, and I do not feel this woman's attitude was called for.

Cayman Airways - Price gouging, taking advantage of customers

Because of Hurricane Dean I was forced to end my vacation in Grand Cayman prematurely. I couldn't get a flight on my airline (American Airlines), so I got a seat on Cayman Airways. I was charged $650 for this flight.

When I got home I looked on the internet for the 'normal ' prices for Cayman Airways for a flight from Grand Cayman to Miami. The posted price was $232 for a one way flight.

Cayman Airways took advantage of me and many other people during a crisis. This is price gouging. Unethical business practices like this should be made known and companies called to account for their actions.
