We island hopped between Grenada and Barbados so our only direct option was Liat, and the reviews are wishy washy. The month before I monitored the flight we were on which was 6;55am out of GND and landed 7:50am in BGI. It was always taking off between 6:45am and 7:15am so I was like hey that is great for a...

It is difficult to recommend but if you want to travel around the Caribbean you don't have much option. I have travelled with the airline before but this time the ground staff were quite rude and abrupt. There were confusing announcements and when people asked they just repeated what they had said. These flights are a bit like buses as...

We were probably lucky, our flight was on time. No problems with our bags either. The place inside the plane was very narrow and it was also very hot, only some passengers on the front seats (first class??? hahaha) got some water in plastic cup.

Liat have been dominating the airlines in the Caribbean for a LONG time and every single time I had travelled with them between 2000-2010, they have been terrible. However, this summer, they were amazing! We were a group of 3, island hopping for carnival and to visit family in Barbados, Grenada and Dominica. Each flight took off on time or...

To avoid if possible. On strike without notice more than once during 2017. Be prepare to find an hotel for overnight stay and to be back at the airport early in the morning to fight for the next departure. Horrible experience. We are left without a choice. Liat are the sole transporter between islands.

Original flight cancelled and no alternatives that day, refused refund and would only offer a credit note. Flight late leaving so impacted the ferry. Staff rude and unhelpful

I've flow on LIAT for several years now and have had a mixture of experiences. However, the last flight was smooth and perfect with no problems.

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.
