LIAT airlines experience?

We are booked from St Lucia to Antigua then St Kitts and just curious of any advice for us. Will they weigh carryons for the 15# limit? and size? Anyone lose any checked bags? Did they forward okay? Anyone notified of schedule changes? Thanks for any advice!

Lots of varied LIAT experiences - they are notorious around the islands for delays, etc. Keep an active eye on your reservation and be flexible - it's very likely you will have a delay or two along the way. They are very strict about checked bag sizes and weights, not quite as much over carry ons. Luggage is fairly likely to make it with you, but again - LIAT is notorious throughout the islands for poor service, delays, etc. Be flexible and take any hiccups in stride - they will get you there, and your luggage - just be prepared to be proactive: seek out ground personnel for updates, keep an active eye on your reservation and flight times, etc.

You should, statistically, have no problems, but overall LIAT has more problems than most airlines, as they service more airports than they have airplanes for!

Overall, don't stress about it as there is nothing you can do, just have be flexible and be proactive. Overall, easy flights, etc. Enjoy your trip - sounds great!

That's great IrishFan-80! Glad your flight went off OK all along the route - always a relief when that happens.

Will not hold my breath on an all new fleet till I see it though! lol.

Bon jou IrishFan-80,

We haven't heard of any problems re:service, flights or planes, in a very long while, from family, friends and guests that regularly fly LIAT.

Bless up! Paul
