From the check-in staff to the cabin crew, it was indeed a pleasure flying Bahamasair. They never ever fail me. I fly with them all the time. I choose Bahamasair as my carrier everywhere I go. Many people just recognize Bahamasair by the negatives, but Bahamasair is truly an exceptional airline. On my most recent trip, I have had THE...

We flew to exuma from Nassau. Unfortunately we missed the evening flight which we had booked but the changed us to the next morning at no additional charge. The flight and the crew were great the only issue was the service person at the front counter when we missed our flight. Although she did provide us with information she was...

On Bahamas air the fly to arrive alive but previous experience they have never been on time, so when traveling with them have your mind made up to wait. On the other hand traveling with them the last two times for me they have been on time and the staff friendly and they also arrive without incident.

There's not much you can say good about Bahamasair except that you will not crash in one of their planes. They don't care for luggage much, if at all it seems. Passenger priority is fine and all, but I would like my luggage to arrive the same time I do. On the same flight as well. They sent a smaller...

The company lost our luggage in Nassau, so we stayed in Exuma (at a very expensive hotel) without enjoying because we just had one clothe. I really don't recommend this flight company.

We choose this airline as ferry (route is scenic) takes 5 hours and airline take less than one hour. This airline have shortage of planes and whatever plane comes first they allocate that plane to some route. Feel lucky if your route gets a plane. Its all random, there is no planning. They may merge one route to other... Long...

If you don't have a schedule to keep to and aren't checking bags, this airline may be an OK choice. This airline is consistently delayed and in our case, the delay was 3 hours, with little updates and information from the airline. Also, if you check bags, you can pretty much expect them to not be at baggage claim after...

Taken the afternoon service, the flights had almost 2 hours delay on a trip that is around 40 minutes. They are particularly slow in organising and accommodating people during boarding, hence the reason of the delay I guess. They sometimes offer a glass water but randomly not to everybody. Not a big fan!

Attentive flight attendants, consistency with procedures was noticed on all flights. It was weird that the woman didn't let me sit in the seat that was on my boarding pass.

My flying experience was good as it always is on the National Flag carrier. However, it was also an early one and afforded me the opportunity to witness the beautiful coastlines and emerald blue waters of the Bahamas island chain. And of course the pilots landed the aircraft very smoothly.
