ANTIGUA & BARBUDA: Gov't. Called Out for Not Lowering Fuel Prices
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Daily Observer reports that as oil prices continued to drop on
the world market, former minister of finance and political leader
of the opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) Harold Lovell is
criticizing the government for not passing on the savings to
residents.

Mr. Lovell said the UPP is monitoring the situation as he calls on
government to drop the price of fuel, according to The Daily
Observer.

"It is unconscionable what the government is doing.  Based on the
price they are paying, the agreed tax return that we would get
from consumption tax on gasoline is between EC$2.50 and EC$3 per
gallon and today they are getting two and three times that
amount," the report quoted Mr. Lovell as saying.

"That cannot be right and that cannot be fair to the people of
this country," Mr. Lovell told the Snake Pit, the report notes.

The UPP leader said even if the government does not want to cut
back as much as the previous administration did, it is making
enough to give more of the benefits to consumers, the report
relays.

"Even if they wanted to take a little bit more because they felt
things were tight and they maybe wanted to take EC$4 on the gallon
-- which would represent an increase from EC$2.50 -- but to
bringing in EC$7 and EC$8, I think that is unconscionable," Mr.
Lovell said, the report notes.

Last year, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance Lennox
Weston said that local gas prices are not tied to price
fluctuations on the global market, but are instead based on
government's projections, the report relays.

Mr. Weston said that the government examines the longevity of
trends in the global oil market every six months and uses that to
predict price changes here, the report notes.  Long-term changes
result in changes in the local market, while short-term changes
have no effect on prices, the report says.

Oil prices worldwide have dropped from over US$100 per barrel in
August last year to just about US$40 per barrel this August, the
report discloses.

Between that time, fuel prices were dropped only once in Antigua,
the report relays.  In February this year consumers started seeing
savings at the pump when gas prices fell from E$14.99 to E$13.50
per gallon, the report notes.

Diesel went down by E$2 from E$15.20 and petrol prices here are
said to be the highest in the region, the report adds.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
September 23, 2014, The Daily Observer said that Antigua & Barbuda
could soon find itself in the company of Japan, Zimbabwe, and
Greece, the countries with the highest national debts.

In the January 2014 budget presentation, the former administration
indicated that the nation's debt was 87 per cent of GDP, according
to The Daily Observer.  However, Prime Minister Gaston Browne has
disputed the figure, deeming it to be as high as 130 per cent, the
report noted.

Minister Browne said while his government's increased borrowing is
pushing up the nation's debt-to-GDP ratio, it is necessary to
solve the country's problems, the report related.

FIDEICOMISO FINANCIERO: Moody's Assigns B1 Global Rating on A Sec.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's rates Fideicomiso Financiero Pvcred Serie XXIV, a
securitization of personal loans in Argentina
Global Credit Research - 07 Sep 2015
Approximately ARS 123,089,000 of debt securities rated
Buenos Aires City, September 07, 2015

Moody's Latin America Agente de Calificacion de Riesgo has rated
Fideicomiso Financiero Pvcred Serie XXIV.  This transaction will
be issued by TMF Trust Company (Argentina) S.A.- acting solely in
its capacity as issuer and trustee.

As of Sept. 7, 2015, the securities for this transaction have not
yet been placed in the market.  The transaction is pending
approval from the Comision Nacional de Valores, if any assumption
or factor Moody's considers when assigning the ratings change
before closing, the ratings may also change.

   -- ARS 81,239,000 in Class A Floating Rate Debt Securities
      (VRDA TV) of "Fideicomiso Financiero Pvcred Serie XXIV",
      rated Aaa.ar (sf) (Argentine National Scale) and B1 (sf)
      (Global Scale, Local Currency)

   -- ARS 2,462,000 in Class B Floating Rate Debt Securities (VRDB
      TV) of "Fideicomiso Financiero Pvcred Serie XXIV", rated
      Baa2.ar (sf) (Argentine National Scale) and Caa1 (sf)
      (Global Scale, Local Currency)

   -- ARS 39,388,000 in Certificates (CP) of "Fideicomiso
      Financiero Pvcred Serie XXIV", rated Caa1.ar (sf) (Argentine
      National Scale) and Caa3 (sf) (Global Scale, Local
      Currency).

RATINGS RATIONALE

The rated securities are payable from the cashflow coming from the
assets of the trust, which is an amortizing pool of approximately
6,376 eligible personal loans denominated in Argentine pesos,
bearing fixed interest rate, originated by Pvcred, a financial
company owned by Comafi's Group in Argentina.  Only the
installments due after October 31, 2015 will be assigned to the
trust.

The VRDA TV will bear a floating interest rate (BADLAR plus
400bps).  The VRDA TV's interest rate will never be higher than
32% or lower than 20%.  The VRDB will also bear a floating
interest rate (BADLAR plus 500bps).  The VRDB TV's interest rate
will never be higher than 34% or lower than 22%.

Overall credit enhancement is comprised of subordination, various
reserve funds and excess spread.

The transaction has initial subordination levels of 24.76% for the
VRDA TV and 22.48% for the VRDB TV, calculated over the pool's
principal balance as of Oct. 31, 2015.  The subordination levels
will increase overtime due to the turbo sequential payment
structure.  The transaction will have a grace period for principal
and interest payment until December 2015.

The transaction also benefits from an estimated 46.07% annual
excess spread, before considering losses, taxes or prepayments and
calculated at the caps of 32% for the VRDA TV and 34% for the VRDB
TV.

Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the rating:
Factors that may lead to a downgrade of the ratings include an
increase in delinquency levels beyond the level Moody's assumed
when rating this transaction.  Although Moody's analyzed the
historical performance data of previous transactions and similar
receivables originated by Pvcred, the actual performance of the
securitized pool may be affected, among others, by the economic
activity, high inflation rates compared with nominal salaries
increases and the unemployment rate in Argentina.

Factors that may lead to an upgrade of the ratings include the
building of credit enhancement over time due to the turbo
sequential payment structure, when compared with the level of
projected losses in the securitized pool.

Loss and Cash Flow Analysis:

Moody's considered the credit enhancement provided in this
transaction through the initial subordination levels for each
rated class, as well as the historical performance of Pvcred
portfolio.  In addition, Moody's considered factors common to
consumer loans securitizations such as delinquencies, prepayments
and losses; as well as specific factors related to the Argentine
market, such as the probability of an increase in losses if there
are changes in the macroeconomic scenario in Argentina.

These factors were incorporated in a cash flow model that takes
into account all the relevant features of the transaction's assets
and liabilities.  Monte Carlo simulations were run, which
determines the expected loss for the rated securities.

Moody's analyzed the historical performance data of previous
transactions and similar receivables originated by Pvcred, ranging
from January 2013 to April 2015.  Moody's has observed a weaker
performance of recent vintages with delinquencies of more than 180
days, as well as prior recent securitized pool of assets.  As a
result, Moody's has increased some of the default assumptions in
the securitized pools.  Moody's notes that there is significant
uncertainty around key macroeconomic variables in Argentina,
including inflation rates, salary increases compared to inflation,
and economic activity, which have an impact on future performance
of this transaction.

In assigning the rating to this transaction, Moody's assumed a
lognormal distribution of losses for each one of the different
securitized subpools: for the PVCred loans, a mean of 20% and a
coefficient of variation of 60% and for the "Refinanciados" loans,
a mean of 41% and a coefficient of variation of 60%.  Also,
Moody's assumed a lognormal distribution for prepayments with a
mean of 35% and a coefficient of variation of 70%.

Servicer default was modeled by simulating the default of Banco
Comafi as the servicer consistent with its current rating of
Caa1/Baa1.ar.  In the scenarios where the servicer defaults,
Moody's assumed that the defaults on the pool would increase by 20
percentage points.

The model results showed 1.69% expected loss for Class A Floating
Rate Debt Securities, a 12.91% for the Class B Floating Rate Debt
Securities and 32.84% for the Certificates.

Moody's also evaluated the back-up servicing arrangements in the
transaction.  If Pvcred is removed as collection agent, Banco
Comafi will be appointed as the back-up collection agent.

Stress Scenarios:

Moody's ran several stress scenarios, including increases in the
default rate assumptions.  If default rates were increased 6% from
the base case scenario, the ratings of the Class A Floating Rate
Securities, the Class B Floating Rate Securities and of the
Certificates would likely be downgraded to B2 (sf), Caa3 (sf) and
Ca (sf) respectively.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was "Moody's
Approach to Rating Consumer Loan-Backed ABS" published in January
2015.

Moody's National Scale Credit Ratings (NSRs) are intended as
relative measures of creditworthiness among debt issues and
issuers within a country, enabling market participants to better
differentiate relative risks.  NSRs differ from Moody's global
scale credit ratings in that they are not globally comparable with
the full universe of Moody's rated entities, but only with NSRs
for other rated debt issues and issuers within the same country.
NSRs are designated by a ".nn" country modifier signifying the
relevant country, as in ".za" for South Africa.

BAHA MAR: Wants CEXIM Exhibits Stricken
---------------------------------------
Northshore Mainland Services Inc., et al., requested that the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware strike and not
consider purported evidence that is the subject of the Debtors'
evidentiary objection to the CEXIM reply to objections to CEXIM's
motion to dismiss the Chapter 11 cases of the Debtors:

   Exhibit A -- Appeal Summons in the Matter of an application
   made under the inherent jurisdiction of the Court,
   alternatively pursuant to Section 254 of the Companies (Winding
   Up Amendment) Act 2011.

On Aug. 25, CCA Bahamas, Ltd., submitted a reply in support of its
motion to dismiss the Debtors' cases, stating that the Debtors
filed their petitions in bad faith, coupled with their inability
to adequately fund their cases, the strong Bahamian interests at
stake, the viability of alternative insolvency proceedings in the
Bahamas, and the lack of connections with the United States,
compel dismissal of the cases.

In a separate Aug. 25 filing, the Debtor made evidentiary
objections to the exhibits filed in support of reply of CCA's
motion to dismiss.  The Debtors requested that the Court strike
and not consider any of the purported evidence that is the subject
of the Debtors' evidentiary objections nor any statement relying
on such purported evidence:

   Exhibit C -- Address by Prime Minister, Right Honourable Perry
   G. Christie, M.P. to Nation on Baha Mar Negotiations and
   Proceedings.

   Exhibit D -- Petitions In the Matter of the Companies Act, 1992
   Chapter 308 and the Companies (Wind Up amendment) Act 2011.

   Exhibit E -- Applications In the Matter of the Companies Act,
   1992 (Chapter 308) and the Companies (Wind Up amendment) Act
   2011

The Debtors filed on Aug. 24, a status report regarding Bahamian
Proceedings (Winding Up Petitions and Provisional Liquidator
Summons) pending before the Supreme Court of The Bahamas,
disclosing, among other things:

   1. On Aug. 19, the Bahamian Court commenced a hearing to
consider certain aspects of the Bahamian Proceedings.  During the
course of such hearing, the Bahamian Court indicated that it would
dismiss the Winding Up Petitions filed in respect of these Debtor
entities upon the request of the respondents (and without any
objection) because the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of The
Bahamas, petitioning in a representative capacity, did not allege
on behalf of those parties for whom she was petitioning, that they
were creditors of the entities:

      a. BML Properties Ltd.;
      b. Baha Mar Operating Company Ltd.;
      c. Riviera Golf Ventures Ltd.;
      d. Baha Mar Entertainment Ltd.;
      e. Baha Mar Support Services Ltd.;
      f. Baha Mar Leasing Company Ltd.; and
      g. Baha Mar Sales Company Ltd.

As a result, the Provisional Liquidator Summonses relating to the
dismissed entities would be dismissed as well.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 1, 2015,
Stephanie Gleason, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported
that the bankruptcy judge for Baha Mar Ltd. on Aug. 28 outlined
two possible middle-ground rulings on whether to dismiss the
resort developer's bankruptcy case and said he would present his
decision as soon as possible, likely in September.

According to the report, Judge Kevin Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Wilmington, Del., heard arguments on motions from two
Chinese national companies -- its lender, the Export-Import Bank
of China, and its contractor, a China State Engineering Corp.
subsidiary called China Construction America -- that want the case
decided in Bahamian court.  Judge Carey presented two possible
alternatives to a simple confirmation or denial during the
hearing: allowing the case to continue but requiring the Bahamian
court to approve the bankruptcy plan as a stipulation for its
confirmation, and suspending the proceeding rather than dismissing
it outright, the report related.

BAHA MAR: Judge Appoints Liquidator with Limited Power
------------------------------------------------------
Stephanie Gleason, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reported that a judge in the Bahamas said a liquidator could take
control of the stalled Baha Mar resort project to a liquidator,
but limited the official's powers.

According to the report, the Bahamian judge took the middle ground
in a ruling, read in court on Sept. 4, that appoints a liquidator
specifically for the purpose of preserving the assets of the $3.5
billion project, rather than authorizing the liquidator to develop
a plan for completion of the project.

BRAZIL: Rousseff Denies Levy Is Isolated and Worn Out
-----------------------------------------------------
Matthew Malinowski at Bloomberg News reports that Brazil's
President Dilma Rousseff said her Finance Minister Joaquim Levy is
not isolated and worn out, even after several of his recent
proposals aimed at avoiding a sovereign credit rating downgrade
were blocked.

"This process of distorting and saying that Minister Levy is
isolated and worn out is a disservice to the country," President
Rousseff told reporters in Brasilia, Bloomberg News notes.  "He is
not at all.  Within our government, he is not.   We have the
utmost respect for the minister, and for all the ministers in our
economic area," President Rousseff added.

Bloomberg News relays that the government is looking to reduce the
budget deficit and overcome economic difficulties, President
Rousseff said.  While Brazil is maintaining its social programs,
it is impossible to create new expenditures in this situation, she
said, Bloomberg News notes.

Bloomberg News says that Brazil's Congress has redoubled its
opposition to Mr. Levy's austerity proposals as Latin America's
biggest economy heads to its first two-year recession since 1931.

The government reduced its estimate for budget savings for the
second time this year amid political resistance to tax increases
and budget cuts, together with a drop in tax revenue, Bloomberg
News notes.  Standard & Poor's has warned that backtracking on
fiscal commitments would prompt a downgrade to junk.

Officials scrapped efforts to revive the so-called CPMF tax on
financial transactions, Bloomberg News discloses.  Mr. Levy had
said as recently as Aug. 29 that reintroducing that tax "would be
good if it were used as a source of revenue for the health area
for a few years," Bloomberg News notes.

The government foresees a deficit next year excluding interest
payments of BRL30.5 billion ($8.1 billion), or about 0.5 percent
of gross domestic product, Planning Minister Nelson Barbosa said
on Aug. 31, Bloomberg News notes.  That compares with a target of
2 percent at the beginning of the year and a revised objective of
0.7 percent announced in July, Bloomberg News says.

Moody's on Aug. 11 cut Brazil's credit rating by one level to
Baa3, with a stable outlook, citing weak economic performance,
rising debt and a lack of political consensus on reforms.  Brazil
is rated BBB- by S&P, which on July 28 changed the outlook to
negative, indicating that a downgrade is more likely than an
upgrade.


BRAZIL: President Vows New Measures to Deal With Deficit
--------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that Brazil President Dilma Rousseff vowed to
take new measures to reduce the deficit her administration is
projecting for 2016, without ruling out more spending cuts and
additional taxes in Brazil.

The 2016 budget unveiled projected Brazil's first-ever primary
fiscal deficit, before payment of interest on the national debt,
sparking controversy, according to EFE News.

The administration presented a budget with a deficit with the idea
of being "transparent" and showing that the economy "clearly has
problems," Rousseff told reporters at a ceremony welcoming
participants in the WorldSkills professional training competition,
EFE News notes.

The report notes that President Rousseff denied rumors that
Finance Minister Joaquim Levy was leaving the Cabinet and said he
was not unhappy with the government despite differences over the
budget.

The administration estimates that Brazil will post a budget
deficit of BRL30.5 billion (about $8.4 billion), the equivalent of
0.50 percent of the gross domestic product, in 2016, the report
relays.

The report discloses that some opposition members have called on
Congress to reject the budget and economists warned that credit
rating agencies could downgrade Brazil's debt because of the
budget shortfall.

President Rousseff refused to rule out any measures to balance the
budget, which posted a deficit in 2014 and is running below the
administration's projections this year, the report notes.

"No source of revenues" has been ruled out, President Rousseff
said, the report relays.

The budget adjustment measures already taken by the government
"already had an effect" on the economy, which is in recession,
President Rousseff said, the report notes.

The government released a report showing that the GDP contracted
1.9 percent in the second quarter on top of a decline of 0.70
percent in the first quarter, meeting the technical definition of
a recession, the report relays.

Economists define a recession as six consecutive months of
negative GDP, the report adds.


CORRETORA SOUZA: Closes Operations Due to Economic Crisis
---------------------------------------------------------
Denyse Godoy at Bloomberg News reports that Corretora Souza Barros
Cambio e Titulos SA survived three coups, a sovereign default and
hyperinflation that doubled prices every other month.  But
Brazil's second-oldest brokerage couldn't withstand today's
crisis.

After almost nine decades, only a few of the once 150-strong
workforce remain at the company's mid-century offices in downtown
Sao Paulo to tie up loose ends before closing its doors for good,
according to Bloomberg News.  In the end, the straw that broke
Souza Barros' back and brokerages like it wasn't so dramatic as a
military coup -- competition and a market that never quite lived
up to its potential was enough to do the job, Bloomberg News
discloses.

In a note to clients and employees posted on its website, Souza
Barros thanked "everyone who participated in these past 87 years,"
saying "we wouldn't have gotten here" without them, Bloomberg News
says.

Half of Brazil's 10 biggest brokerages have posted losses every
year since 2012, even as the head of the BM&FBovespa SA declared
that Latin America's biggest exchange was on course to lure 4.5
million new investors by 2015, Bloomberg News discloses.  Instead,
the bourse attracted fewer than 6,000.

"The exchange is out of touch," Raymundo Magliano Filho, director
of brokerage Magliano Corretora and former chief executive officer
of the BM&FBovespa, Bloomberg News relays.  "Instead of moving
forward, we're going backward," Mr. Filho added.

The BM&FBovespa's press office said in an e-mailed response to
questions that the estimate to boost individual investors by 10-
fold to 5 million by 2015 was based on "extraordinary" prospects
for Brazil's economy in 2009, Bloomberg News notes.  A worsening
domestic outlook contributed to "a frustration of expectations,"
the response added.

                         Overly Optimistic

As BM&FBovespa CEO Edemir Pinto reiterated the 5 million target as
recently as September 2014, it was becoming more and more obvious
the goal was unobtainable, Bloomberg News notes.  A BM&FBovespa
study, conducted by the Getulio Vargas Foundation in 2010, placed
the number closer to 1.19 million by December 2020 -- which would
be twice the 558,000 investors the market has now. Even that is
turning out to be overly optimistic: The estimate was based on
average economic growth of 4.1 percent a year between 2010 and
2020, Bloomberg News relays.

Instead, growth in Brazil has plummeted.  Latin America's largest
economy slid into a recession in the second quarter -- shrinking
2.6 percent -- and economists in a weekly Central Bank survey are
forecasting the longest contraction since the 1930s, Bloomberg
News discloses.  A plunge in commodities prices and an emerging-
market selloff coincided with a corruption scandal that has
crippled Brazilian builders and left President Dilma Rousseff
fighting for her political survival, Bloomberg News says.

Bloomberg News notes that Magliano Corretora has fired two-thirds
of its 105 brokerage employees in recent years, the firm's
director said.  SLW Corretora sold its portfolio to Guide
Investimentos in March, joining more than 30 other firms that have
exited the business since 2011, according to the Central Bank.
Others are merging to weather the downturn, Bloomberg News relays.
Sao Paulo-based Rico and the Brazilian unit of Caixa Geral de
Depositos combined operations in July 2014, the same month that XP
Investimentos bought Clear Corretora, Bloomberg News notes.

                           Fearing the End

For months, Souza Barros traders swapped whispers that the end was
near, but it wasn't until the firm started selling its furniture
that the worst was confirmed, said one former employee who asked
not to be identified, Bloomberg News relays.

"We see a bad scenario, with products sold in mass and price
wars," the company's CEO, Carlos Alberto de Souza Barros, the
grandson of the founder, told Valor Economico newspaper in May
when announcing the decision to close.  "That's not the way Souza
Barros operates," Mr. Barros added.

Today, investors are more likely to pull out of Brazil's market
than jump in, notes the report.  The Ibovespa stock index, which
tumbled 2.5 percent Sept. 1, has lost 22 percent from its peak in
May, Bloomberg News notes.  The $888 million outflow from the
iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF this year is the most from any
exchange-traded fund in New York, Bloomberg News relays.

"It's a huge challenge that the sector is facing now," Caio
Villares, director of the brokerage Concordia Corretora and
president of Ancord, the sector association, said from Sao Paulo,
Bloomberg News relays.  "The exchange has to work with brokerages
on financial education to make the stock market more popular,"
Villares added.


PETROLEO BRASILEIRO: Oil Workers Declare Strike in Brazil
---------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that workers at Petroleo Brasileiro S.A., which
accounts for nearly 12 percent of Brazil's gross domestic product,
have declared an indefinite strike that was scheduled to start
Sept. 4.

The oil workers union said the strike was being staged to protest
Petrobras's new business plan, which has resulted in "thousands of
firings" at contractors and represents a "real dismantling of the
company," according to EFE News

The report notes that the union is also questioning Petrobras
management's decision to sell "strategic assets," including a 25
percent stake in BR Distribuidora, a fuel distributor.

The strike will affect administrative and operating units at
Petrobras, which has about 86,000 employees in Brazil, and
facilities belonging to the Transpetro subsidiary, union leaders
said, the report relays.

Petrobras, Brazil's largest corporation, is mired in a financial
crisis caused by slumping oil prices, the government's price
control policy and a wide-ranging corruption scandal that has led
to the arrests of several former executives, the report notes.

Petrobras's business plan calls for selling up to $15.1 billion in
assets this year and in 2016, the report says.

The company is trimming its operations, leading to large layoffs
at suppliers and contractors in recent months, the report adds.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Aug. 13, 2015, Moody's Investors Service affirmed all ratings for
Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) and ratings based on
Petrobras' guarantee. This includes the affirmation of Petrobras'
Ba2 senior unsecured debt rating.  The company's b2 baseline
credit assessment (BCA) is unchanged.  The outlook is stable for
Petrobras and its guaranteed debt.

* ST. KITTS & NEVIS: To Use US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Caribbean360.com reports that government has signed the agreement
with the United States of America to implement the Foreign Account
Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) which will see St. Kitts and Nevis
handing over information to the American government about citizens
with bank accounts in the twin-island federation.

Enacted by the US Congress in 2010, FATCA targets non-compliance
by US taxpayers using foreign accounts, according to
Caribbean360.com.  It requires foreign financial institutions to
report to the Internal Revenue Service information about financial
accounts held by US taxpayers, or by foreign entities in which US
taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest, the report notes.

US Ambassador to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean, and the
Organization of Eastern Caribbean States Larry Palmer welcomed St.
Kitts and Nevis' "commitment to enhancing global financial
transparency by improving international tax compliance", noting
that every year, tax evasion deprives governments of all sizes of
much-needed resources to fund public services and investments, the
report relates.

"Today's signing marks a significant development in our nations'
collaborative efforts to combat offshore tax evasion- an objective
that mutually benefits our two countries," the report quoted Mr.
Palmer as saying.

"FATCA is yet one more example of the deep and substantial ways in
which the economies of St. Kitts and Nevis and the United States
are linked," Mr. Palmer said, the report notes.

A statement from the US government said this kind of information
exchange is a top priority, as access to information from
international financial institutions is critically important to
the full and fair enforcement of American laws, Mr. Palmer added.

CARIBBEAN AIRLINES: March Deadline to End London Service
--------------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that the end of March 2016 has reportedly been
set as the deadline for Caribbean Airlines to discontinue its
London service.

A report in an issue of Trinidad & Tobago's Newsday says, although
the company is insisting that a decision on the route has not been
finalized, well-placed sources at Caribbean Airline's headquarters
say it is a done deal, according to RJR News.

Last month, reports surfaced about the possibility of the airline
ending its Trans-Atlantic services for the second time, the report
notes.

                    About Caribbean Airlines

Caribbean Airlines Limited -- http://www.caribbean-airlines.com/
-- provides passenger airline services in the Caribbean, South
America, and North America.  The company also offers freighter
services for perishables, fish and seafood, live animals, human
remains, and dangerous goods.  In addition, it operates a duty
free store in Trinidad.  Caribbean Airlines Limited was founded in
2006 and is based in Piarco, Trinidad and Tobago.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 19, 2015, RJR News said that Caribbean Airlines Limited is
still facing an acute shortage of pilots.  Trinidad's Newsday
newspaper said the airline is still reeling from the loss of close
to a dozen pilots from its Jamaican operations last year, forcing
it to send Trinidadian pilots to operate some of the Jamaican
routes to US destinations, according to RJR News.

The TCRLA reported on Sept. 24, 2014, that Trinidad Express said
Caribbean Airlines Limited will get a total of TT$1.8 billion
support from the Government during the period 2013 and 2015.
Finance Minister Larry Howai stated that the Caribbean
Airlines management had informed him that the company expects to
break-even in three years time.  Mr. Howai, however, said that
government would have to provide funds for CAL in 2015, 2016 and
2017.

On July 11, 2014, the TCRLA citing Trinidad and Tobago Newsday,
said that Caribbean Airlines is facing a loss.  Minister Howai was
hopeful the loss could be narrowed down to less than TT$100
million.

Caribbean Airlines Limited recorded losses estimated at US$70
million in 2012.  In 2011, CAL had recorded losses of US43.7
million, the TCRLA reported on May 20, 2013.


                            ***********


Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-LA editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.
Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices
for actual trades are probably different.  Our objective is to
share information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy
or sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR-LA editor holds some position in the
issuers' public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-LA features a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on the
latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.
