THE PROBLEMS confronting the region’s intra-island airline LIAT moved from bad to worse yesterday.

Broken-down planes left hundreds of LIAT passengers stranded across the region  over the weekend, and the resulting frustrations hit line staff, who staged worked stoppages in Barbados and Dominica yesterday.

Staff at Grantley Adams International Airport reportedly vacated their positions on at least two occasions, as a long line of waiting passengers reached as far as the pavement.

Some of those passengers were back and forth from the airport since Saturday, trying  to get a flight back home to Grenada.

What a shame! LIAT needs some proper competition in the market to whip them into shame. This kind of foolishness has been going on for too long. I had one horrible experience with LIAT and never set foot on a LIAT plane since then.
