BWIA To Shut Down December 31

Long, long, long, long struggling Caribbean carrier BWIA West Indies Airways (I believe that’s pronounced BWEEEEE) will shut down December 31st after a prolonged illness.  The airline, based in Trinidad & Tobago, will be re-born as  Caribbean Airlines on January 1st, focusing on "niche" routes rather than trying to compete with airlines that do not lose gobs of money every time they fly.  BWIA has been on the brink of extinction for ages, so this won’t come as much of a surprise.  Unless you’ve never heard of them, in which case it’s a surprise, but not one that you care about.
