    Re: Hurricane Irma's Impact on Aviation

    Another question that comes to mind is what will the lasting impact of Irma be? Is Winair still viable? Is LIAT in its current form still viable? Is there a purpose for an Antigua hub/base if EIS and SXM are no longer viable destinations?

    Re: Hurricane Irma's Impact on Aviation

    .Next time you go, tip your taxi driver, waitress/waiter, bell boy etc an extra $50 or whatever you can afford. This way, the money goes right to their own pockets. Good idea. Many of these people on SXM aren't locals so who knows what help they will get as they aren't Dutch citizens. Even for the ...

    .". Cat 3 can devastate poorly constructed structures. Further, despite being close to the eye, Antigua wasn't impacted much. The suE and claimed strength of the storm should have devastated islands that were "brushed" by the edge of the eye wall, but this did not happen. .. Barbuda ...

    ANU is open today, but don't know from when. Both the BA and VS flights from LGW to ANU are in the air now, ETA 1433 and 1426 respectively. However, the BA flight will terminate at ANU instead of continuing onto PLS. BA flies to PLS twice-weekly, the next flight will be on Sunday. BA's normal servi...

    Re: AA exiting San Juan gradually?

    If SJU was doing any good, then Seaborne would be doing A LOT better than they are now... Why? Most, including those in the USVI, can now fly direct to the USA so have no need to use an SJU hub. The only major destination extensively using SJU will EIS, and to a lesser degree STX. In addition tight...

    Re: AA exiting San Juan gradually?

    Anyone have any good #'s on traffic growth into San Juan. I would think it is shrinking fast. I think what many people here fail to realize is that most SJU traffic originates in the mainland US, not in SJU. The economic situation in SJU does affect the demand for travel but not moreso than the eco...
