    Why does’nt the share holders get it? Liat has lived its life and its time for change.

    Too much debt period! Time to close this airline and start fresh with a new debt-free airline. The Trinis finally got it right with BWIA after so many failed endeavors but the owners of LIAT are hell bent on saving face. NO new CEO can change that airline unless the debts are forgiven. Their hands are tied.

    Assertive, NOT Agressive!

    Those employees always choose the peak time – Carnival lovers are now stuck on the island. After all, the festivities ended today. This is very unfortunate.

    papa met and PM Spencer wanted to name liat after the Grenadian that won the gold medal

      What does the suggestion of naming a plane after the only person from the Eastern Caribbean to ever win a gold medal at the Olympics have to do with that? It was Grenadians that ask for that it was the Antiguan PM.

      Aren’t Grenadians, in fact all LIAT customers entitled to good and efficient service and payment on time for employees? – They have a right to strike…

      Kiranie deserves better than that in fact I really hope that he will not allow his image or success to become affiliated with LIAT at all, lest he tarnish his reputation…

        You have answered the very question you raised at the begining guideline!! Kirani james should NOT have his name engraved on any LIAT plane. This would be equivalent to an association being made between James and the LOWEST level of CUSTOMER SERVICE offered bt the airline.
