Spirit Airlines sent a “recovery plane” to Grand Cayman Monday night. The passengers stayed in the departure hall until the aircraft landed at 10:11pm and took them to south Florida.
Calls and emails to a Spirit Airlines media spokesperson seeking comment on the emergency landing have gone unanswered.
Emergency responders at the airport Monday reported seeing what appeared to be smoke coming from one of the plane’s engines, according to a source close to the situation. The airplane was kept overnight to be serviced by Cayman Airways maintenance and fire services crews.
It was since cleared for flight and departed Grand Cayman Tuesday morning. ■
