Here is a link from a discussion on another forum:

www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/showflat.php…

This topic was just discussed the other day on here as well:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g147358-i651-k6115…

As live4thebeach noted in the discussion on here, they only have one flight going in to VG daily now, though they advertise five a day. The integrity and safety record of the airline is very good though (they have been flying to other destinations in the area for years), and I suspect they will get their act together concerning their nascent VG service in the not too distant future. Right now, if your schedule is flexible don't hesitate to use them. If you have time constraints it would behoove you to book with Air Sunshine.

Thank you very much for letting me know , I was just about to book Jet Blue

flights that look like they will work with Seaborne unless they cancel them.

So in your opinion is air sunshine the best bet ?

or there is always next year

I would be wary of Seaborne until they get their schedule defined. Right now, Air Sunshine, as quirky as they are, is the most consistent airline flying into VG.

If money allows there are many private charters also that are somewhat reasonable. These are obviously the most convenient as they fly on your schedule not theirs.

Private charters are not cheap unless you have enough people in your party to defray the cost...or you can get in on a charter with another group or two who are also trying to book and looking for people like you to help fill out.

Go to this forum:

Look for BillH. He helps people get together to fill out a charter.

we flew them from VG to SJU a few weeks ago- they do not have their act together- couldn't figure out how to weigh all our bags- it took a hour- they will charge for overweight, too. The impression we got is that they are "trying" to be professional. On the other hand- Air Sunshine is quirky. either way, it's a little airplane and a short trip.
