Bride-to-be misses her own wedding after flight to Guyana is cancelled
(Modified from NY post) The cancellation of flights by Dynamic International Airways from JFK to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) at the weekend leaving about 1,000 travelers stranded at the Queens airport, also led to the cancellation of a wedding here.
Among those left high and dry by Dynamic International Airways was Leezel Cambridge, 27, a bride to be who missed her own wedding because of an unexplained snafu in the 2 a.m. flight.
Her husband had to tell their 300 guests, who were already waiting at their venue, that she wouldn’t be making it.
“I had to cancel it,” she said of her nuptials.
She spent Sunday — which was supposed to be her wedding day — curled up on the airport’s floor with her wedding dress and 15 of her family members.
She’s not the only bride that had some unexpected wedding stress caused by the sudden flight cancellation Saturday.
Francine Bascom, a 24-year-old Brooklyn mom, missed her newborn’s christening Sunday and may have to cancel her wedding next weekend because of the travel nightmare.
“I should be in Guyana happy and bouncing around,” she fumed to The Post. “But I’m in New York p—-d off.”
The discount airline initially told passengers the cancellation was because there was something wrong with the plane’s wing, but it has since cancelled three flights, which comprise all of the airline’s service to Guyana.
On Sunday around 6 p.m., a charter bus arrived to bring passengers to a nearby hotel for the night.
According to a facebook post by local handler of Dynamic Airlines, Capt. Gerry Gouveia, flights were scheduled to recommence on Sunday night with the first flight arriving here at 2am on Monday.
Gouveia said “We apologize for the inconvenience to our passengers but the safety of our passengers is always and will always be our first priority. For those who chose to fly with Dynamic, we would like to thank you and to assure you of our continued commitment to serving the Guyana JFK route.”
Additionally, it was noted that “We know all passengers have choices and that is a good thing. We congratulate all the other airlines and wish them well that operate without delays and service interruptions.”
The Airline committed to working around the clock to ensure that passengers arrive at their destination on time.
