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. "

Caribbean Star marks final flight, transfers assets to LIAT

Advocate : "THE seven-year-old Caribbean Star operated its final flight yesterday, marking a takeover by competitor LIAT, in a buyout that Chairman, Jean Holder, describes as 'one of the most significant business deals in the history of the Caribbean' . Late last month, the two carriers finalised and executed an agreement that facilitated the transfer of Caribbean Star's assets to LIAT. That asset purchase agreement did not include the remaining five aircrafts leased by Caribbean Star, which are expected to be transferred to LIAT in a separate transaction expected to coincide with today's closure of the carrier, owned by Antigua-based Texan billionaire, Sir Allen Stanford."
