Caribbean Airlines (Port of Spain) according to this report by the Trinidad Express Newspapers, has failed to meet its promised $5 million payment to Children’s Life Fund, a charity favored by the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.

Also according to the report, CAL owes National Petroleum approximately $29 million for aviation fuel.

The airline has recently reduced staff in the Air Jamaica operation.
