Anyone Got A Report On Sxm?

Wed May 22, 2002 11:00 pm

I've been drooling over the SXM pics on here and really want to go.
Anyone got any good suggestions on who to fly with from the UK, or Holland or France. I see from the pics Air France, KLM and various others go in.
I'd just love to combine drinking an ice cold beer, looking at scantilly clad ladies AND having a B743 over my head at 50ft and 190Kts - Bliss!!

Cheers,
LM

P.S. SXM = Netherlands Antillies, St.Maartens (Princess Juliana Airport)

Hello,
You can better not fly with KLM because they operate the flights to SXM with old 747's. A friend of my flew a month ago with them to SXM and she said it was horrible. I think the best option is AF from CDG. They have a modern fleet and a good price/quality relation. BA is also not very bad.....so it's up to you:D

Well LM,
This is a site for airliners and not for hotel and tourist information. So I think you're here at the wrong address!

Actually, I think he was just asking what airline to take! I'd go with KLM, though AF does now operate their A340s there!

I was interested to know about info regarding SXM relating to HOTAC, flights, and good spotting places (other than the obvious!!).

Thanks to you all who replied though.
