This is mainly no frills airline that operates in small stopovers across small islands of the Caribbean and in the main it is efficient and on time, not cheap mainly due to the high departure taxes charged by the different islands included in price. I recommend it to move between islands

I must say, after reading many negative reviews about Liat I was very nervous about flying with them. I arrived at the airport waiting for the news of flight delays or cancellations but was instead greeted with a quick, efficient and friendly check in desk. The airplane was a ATR with an updated and modernised interior- I've flown ATRs with...

Flew for the first time with this airline today. They only have 10 planes in their fleet but the 68 seater we flew on wasn’t too shabby. It left on time and arrived on time. We had to check in early but the airport at Grenada is pretty basic and getting through security and passport control takes a while. The...

Over the last five years, I must've flown between Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent islands at least 12 times, all on LIAT. The trips involved stops in Barbados, sometimes even Grenada and Martinque. Even though LIAT gets a bad rep, of the 20 trips, I only remember two delays. One was by 2 hours, and another one by 12 hours....

LIAT has gotten a bad rap over the years. On a recent trip to Trinidad I flew with them. We departed Antigua on time and stopped in Barbados and Grenada en route to Trinidad. It was a good flight except for deplaning in Barbados to go through security only to get back on the plane 10 minutes later. On the...
