[Estelar] Leased aircraft InselAir has technical problems
Tue, Feb 21st, 2017

WILLEMSTAD

It seems like the local airline InselAir just cannot get a break. The leased Boeing 737 of the Venezuelan airline Estelar Airlines had technical problems shortly after taking off from the Sint Maarten airport recently. The pilots had to return to the airport.

The aircraft was parked at the airport on Saturday because of these technical problems. The passengers had to spend the night on the island. The passengers’ stay on the island had to be extended again because the problems were still not resolved.

What's the deal? Did you lease aircraft from a Venezuelan airline so that you can get some of the US$100 million Venezuela won't allow you to take out?

Didn't you think that maybe the Venezuelan airline can't themselves afford the hard currency to pay for the spares to maintain their US-made BOEING aircraft properly? And is a breakdown REALLY a surprise?

Seriously, is ANYBODY actually doing ANY thinking at InselAir?
