Only One Airline Gives Free Rum Punch on Flights to the Cayman Islands
These days, the general consensus is that airlines nickel and dime you every chance they get along the way. This is true of most of the mainstream North American carriers, but as we discovered with Southwest's ever-running happy hours and free drink days, there are still airlines out there that give you bang for your buck. Or better yet, let you have some fun on their tab.
Cayman Airways' flights allow economy class passengers to check two bags for free, and they also feature a meal and complimentary Tortuga rum punch. Yes, free unlimited alcoholic drinks in a non-transatlantic international economy class. It's not heavily advertised, but if you look closely at the list of complimentary beverages, you'll surely find it.
Direct flights to Grand Cayman are offered from Miami, New York, Tampa, Chicago, and Dallas. Delta and United also service the island, but as we found out this week, despite the fact that the route is technically an international flight, you won't be served a meal, free drinks, or be able to check bags without a fee. They'll also look at you funny if you ask for a free rum punch.
