LIAT is pleased to announce the introduction of a new flight schedule which takes effect on March 12th, 2006.

The new schedule is planned to result in improved punctuality performance and an improved product through the introduction of more non-stop or one stop services between certain markets. Some of the highlights include:

Two daily Dash-8 services between Antigua and Guadeloupe.
Daily non-stop flight between Barbados and Trinidad.
Five daily flights into Melville Hall Dominica; services to Canefield are suspended.
Non stop services between Antigua and San Juan on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
Daily non-stop flights between Antigua and Tortola.
Introduction of a midday shuttle between Trinidad and Grenada.
Three daily non-stop flights from Antigua to Barbados.
More on-line connections via the hubs at Antigua and Barbados.

The new schedule will help to deliver on our promise of faster, cheaper, easier and better and will indeed be more appealing to the traveling public.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support and to renew our promise that "new LIAT" will make air travel affordable and accessible to everyone in the region.

No offense, but I would rather get hit by a bus than fly Liat!

Case in point, confirmed reservations two weeks prior to leaving for San Juan. got to ticket counter and were informed of no flights today. Requested a refudn and was told "no refund". Went down to Cape Air, just slightly irritated, and got a flight out winthin an hour.

Requested refund from Liat in March for the Feb cancellation and am still waiting. This is THE worse airline that I have ever encoutered. With service like this I would be suspect of their airplanes.

I'm so sorry to hear about your terrible experience! Don't shoot me though, I'm only the messenger! The article quoted is a press release from the CEO of Liat.

Is Cape Air the only other intra-island airline? I'm wondering how all the Cricket World Cup visitors are going to fare next year when they have to island hop!

You got Cape Air, L**t, Caribbean Sun, American Airlines, and Caribbean Star. Cape Air hands down is the best and most reliable!
