However, Maharaj would not indicate whether or not the resignation had been accepted, but in a statement confirmed that he had held talks with other CAL board of directors to get a better understanding of the current issues.

Maharaj said that until all the issues had been examined, a determination on the way forward will not be decided upon.

The Trinidad Guardian newspaper had reported Wednesday that Nicholas, who has had a stormy 10-month period as head of the state-owned airline, had resigned and quoted Maharaj as saying that he was “in receipt of his letter but I cannot say anything more”.

Nicholas’s tenure has been highlighted by public conflicts with the then Works and Transport Minister Austin Jack Warner, the controversial dismissal of the airline’s chief executive officer, Captain Ian Brunton and the acquisition of Air Jamaica routes and aircraft.
