The Nation Newspaper | Heads should examine LIAT fare structure needs

The Nation Newspaper Heads should examine LIAT fare structure needs: "Is it reasonable for one person to pay $500 from Barbados to St Vincent and the other person $280 on the same flight?
Walrond stated that she travelled to Antigua and paid Barbados $834.70 which she considered unreasonable. Her taxes amounted to US$75. LIAT responded by saying if she was travelling in May, her fare for the same journey would have been $467.20, a saving of $367.50.
LIAT continued that if you book early, your fare would be cheaper. From experience, let's say, if you had booked with LIAT today to travel on the 13th of the month, you would have to purchase your ticket in 24-hours to get the cheaper rate. You know as well as I do everybody cannot afford to pay that early. "
