May I say how considerate it is of you to enable your passengers such an in-depth and thorough tour of the Caribbean.
Most other airlines I have travelled on would simply wish to take me from point A to B in rather a hurry.
I was intrigued that we were allowed to stop at not a lowly one or two but a magnificent six airports yesterday.
And who wants to fly on the same airplane the entire time? We got to change and refuel every step of the way!
I particularly enjoyed sampling the security scanners at each and every airport. I find it preposterous that people imagine them all to be the same.
And as for being patted down by a variety of islanders, well, I feel as if I’ve been hugged by most of the Caribbean already.
I also found it unique that this was all done on ‘island time’, because I do like to have time to absorb the atmosphere of the various departure lounges.
As for our arrival, well, who wants to have to take a ferry at the end of all that flying anyway?
I’m glad the boat was long gone by the time we arrived into Tortola last night — and that all those noisy bars and restaurants were closed.
So thank you, LIAT. I now truly understand why you are ‘The Caribbean Airline’.
P.S. Keep the bag. I never liked it anyway.
