Caribbean airline LIAT said it has held discussions with the pilots’ trade union LIALPA  following the industrial action  on Tuesday which left several passengers stranded throughout the regional network.

Only a limited number of flights were able to operate from Antigua, Barbados and Trinidad.

The company has indicated its willingness to address any legitimate issues and has given a firm commitment that it will  meet with LIALPA on Wednesday, November 6 in an effort to discuss the union’s concerns.

“The company remains hopeful that good sense would prevail and that there will be a resumption of its services early Wednesday,” LIAT said in a press release.

It added: “Customers are reminded to contact the following numbers to reschedule their travel arrangements: from Antigua – 1-268-480-5582; toll free from the rest of the Caribbean – 1-888-844-5428 and from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands – 1-866-549-5428. LIAT sincerely apologizes to affected passengers and the general public for the inconvenience caused as a result of the disruption. Additional information and updates will be provided as soon as possible.”

  1. It is à big shame of the pilots. Liat is loosing money like hell and being saved by the tax layers. There are many pilots out of a job inn the world and these will be willing to fly at even lower wages.
