We will be taking a flight from St Lucia to Barbados next April and have the choice of 3 - 06.55, 16.10 or 21.10 departure.
My preference is actually the 1st flight of the day......ok so I know it's early but that way we'll be in Barbados for 08.00 and have the whole day there instead, whereas if we take the middle flight (which I guess most people would do) then I kind of think we'll probably waste a day as won't be able to relax in St Lucia and by the time we get to Barbados the sun will be setting.
So I'm swinging towards having a very early start but at least having a "useable" day if that makes sense.
Has anyone taken any of these flights? Is the SLU airport less busy at any of those times? If we took the 06.55 flight, what time should we aim to arrive at SLU for check-in? I know the LIAT website says 2hrs before but is that really necessary (from anyone who's actually taken that flight)?
