The flight from Port of Spain to St. Lucia (one stop through St. Vincent) was short and sweet. Check in was no problem, staff was courteous and departure was on time. Return trip was actually early! I traveled with my parents who need wheelchairs and Liat ensured that they were taken care of. No complaints at all from me. Value...

This was a day-time flight which really makes a difference to my comfort level on LIAT. The flight time from Barbados to St. Lucia was short as it was direct with no stop anywhere else in between. Lovely flight.

I have begun to like and appreciate LIAT Airline over the years. Their fleet of planes has been upgraded and in-flight service improved. A hot or cold beverage was offered on this flight which was truly appreciated.

Even that a lot of people say liat is unreliable and is always late, I have to say that my experience so far was always good. Even when we did not leave on time, we were always able to make time good and almost arrived on time. The c/i procedures were always friendly and every time I called the customer...

I really cant believe what we experienced from LIAT. I booked back in April to make the caribbean connections necessary to make my sail charter. not only were both outbound and inbound sectors changed to completely different dates (2 days later outbound and 1 day later inbound), meaning we couldn't make our sail charter on the outbound, or the connecting...

Flight #737 depart Barbados at 18.10, supposed to arrive in Port of Spain 20.10, via St. Vincent: started in Barbados one hour later, due to heavy rainfalls. Then had to turn around on the runway due to a „technical problem“ which, according to a flight attendant, seemed to have been a missing signature on some paperworks. In St. Lucia we...

We booked airline tickets to go from Grenada to San Juan to catch a cruise. Before booking I carefully read all 26 pages of their terms and conditions as I didn't want to get stuck with non-refundable tickets if our flight was canceled. Terms & Conditions stated that if they cancel the flight I could, at my option, either (1)...

As a long-time resident of the Caribbean, I was prepared for the usual delays and/or cancellations with LIAT. To my surprise and satisfaction, every leg of my trip from St. Kitts to Antigua to Barbados to Grenada left on time. Transfers were convenient and boarding calls timely. The ATR72-600 aircraft was very clean and comfortable, with attentive service on board....

I had not heard very positive comments about LIAT from reviews or other travellers so I was dubious about what to expect. After Hurricane Jose had passed we had to rebook our flight from Antigua to St Lucia. When we arrived at the airport we were told that we would be flying via Dominica to Barbados and then from Barbados...
