The flight to Barbados from St Vincent on this schedule was via St Lucia. The fare price for this is very high and one gets NO in flight service what so ever. The sectors are short but at least water could be offered. Liat have improved their time keeping somewhat and have nice new ATR aircraft but cabin service could...

I will have to commend LIAT on how their services have been lately. All my flights have been on time without any delayed. I'm very impressed

I recently took a trip to St. Lucia for a week and to my surprise Liat was on time for both flights. Kanta Kennedy was the agent that I met upon check in and although I was hustling and a bit out if sorts since it was around 5:30am she was very bubbly and helpful. I have flown on Liat...

It happened again. (When I saw my review on this website, I thought I had already written it since I came back only to realize that it was the review from last year). Once again, my options were limited and had to travel LIAT and once again all the rest I got while in St. Lucia was negated by the...

One of the smaller regional airlines that really works according to their presented schedule: I used them about 4 times during one month (March 2018) and was always on time, or earlier!

This is a middle of the road airline. Don’t expect any frills. The seats and planes in general are pretty dated. Most of the planes are fairly small. The staff is friendly. Liat is much better at staying on time than they used to be.

Despite the popular opinion the flight left on time and was early on arrival to our destination. Weather was definitely not the best to fly in, however the pilot kept it on an even and steady all the way. Landing was smooth thanks to the pilot's expert handling of the turbulent winds.

Flight arrived on time and boarding was efficient. Great for island hopping. Couldn't check in online as I had luggage. Website would only allow online check-in if had hand luggage only

I must say despite all the bad reviews that this airline has received over the years, i choose to fly with them based on affordability and also the fact that all of my flights with them were great and on time, and all my possession was where it was suppose to be. Keep up the good work Liat, and always...
