I will be at SXM June 20th to June 23rd and earlier this week I did research on what airlines are flying into SXM, included are airline, type of aircraft and time of arrival. It is not all inclusive. Here is the schedule (minus prop service) into SXM for those dates.

If you like the widebodies, then Sunday would probably be the best bet. Arkefly, Corsairfly, KLM and Air France all fly to SXM from Europe on Sunday. I believe it's the only day you'll see all four there.

From what I remember, Caribbean Airlines fly into SXM on Mon, Wed and Sat with a 737-800 in perhaps the best livery in the Caribbean! hehehe (No bias on my part). I think LI has at least one daily flight into SXM with a Dash 8-300.
Hope that helps.

Flightstats.com also gives you a decent overview of airline schedules. I did a Caribbean benchmark for a few Caribbean airports when it comes down to aircraft movement/number of flights and SXM came out in the top list. I compared CUR, AUA, BGI, POS, ANU, GCM, PTP, MBJ, and SXM. POS, CUR, PTP and SXM came out on top with most flights/aircraft movements but this also includes the intra-island flights of which POS, SXM, PTP and CUR have a lot of. This is also in part due to the fact that these islands have their own airlines.
I compare the flightstats.com schedules on a daily basis with the CUR airport website schedule and it has been accurate for 99 percent of the time so flightstats.com in my opinion is pretty reliable. I suggest you have a look on the schedules at flightstats.com.

Quoting ConcordeBoy (Reply 6): Also, any word on when the alleged displaced threshold is to go into effect?
I didnt know there was going to be a displaced threshold there. In all honesty, I think it is a good thing, for you wont have the possibility of the airfield fence taken down by a wheel or two
The approach into SXM is a nonprecision approach, which means it is the flying pilot's eyeballs which are the judge for vertical guidance - no glideslope on final approach (there might be a VASI, but I dont think so). I dispatched in and out of there a while ago, and I cant recall.
