VAL vs. Air Flamenco

I need to go ahead and make reservations for several flights in May. My preferred timings vary between these airlines on the various flights.

Are they equally reliable as far as punctuality? I've had trouble with the Air Flamenco website. If I google AF I get a new site with a very odd URL that my security software is blocking as malicious. I have a bookmark for AF from several months ago that now comes up with 'oldsite' in the URL. I called and supposedly the old site is still valid, but it has months old info...supposedly they are now flying to Culebra from SJU based on a phone conversation I had with the reservations office.

I need the following flights:

San Juan (SJU or SIG) to Culebra

Culebra to Ceiba

Ceiba to Vieques

Vieques to SIG

Any opinions? TIA

I've only flown VAL and had no problems at all. Will be flying with them again in 2 weeks.

We flew to from Ceiba to Culebra last month on Air Flamenco, and the round trip tickets were about $88 each. Their website was not very useful (you cannot book online), but if you call them, they will take good care of you. I would simply choose whatever airline's schedule works best for you.

I have used both from Ceiba to both Vieques and Culebra and I haven't noticed any difference. Easy, casual, on time or early! I just choose the one with the schedule that works best for me.

We just got back and flew with both airlines. They were both very good. All of our flights were a little late but not much... Island Time! The flights were beautiful and a cool adventure,, worth every penny!!

Are reservations recommended or should I be fine arriving 30 minutes early and buying a ticket at the airport?
