These flights don't integrate well with WMs schedules to ANU. WMs flight from ANU arrives too late to connect in SXM. Apparently Seaborne will be starting flights to ANU and these will connect to the USVI.
These flights are oriented mostly towards local SXM-USVI travel. Even with SKB there is too much waiting around, and in fact the STT SXM connects better with a LI flight than with WM into SKB.
The July schedule allows for connectivity to ANU in both directions. August flights only allow for same connection to ANU, but as you pointed out, the ANU-SXM flight arrives too late. I did hear from someone at the airline that aircraft availability is an issue, so it seems that they are trying to best work with what they have. It is certainly better than nothing, and don't see any reason why the flights can't be filled consistently. I'm sure that as Air Antilles acquires more aircraft, the schedule will allow for better connectivity from the USVI to the entire WM network.
This flight also continues to DOM and PTP, albeit under a different flight number.
