UPDATE: Passengers stranded at GAIA

Barbados’ CARIFTA team are among hundreds of passengers stranded at the Grantley Adams International Airport due to a strike by air traffic controllers.
With all flights halted until 6 p.m. passengers, some of whom were there from as early as 6 a.m. have been buckling down for the lengthy delay.
While the Arrival Hall resembled that of a ghost town, locals and visitors were seen scattered across the other sections of the airport, anxiously awaiting word on when their flights would be ready.

    Shouldn’t the government have known that before they played hard ball with the workers?? Tourists know what strikes are….they just lined up for miles in Britain and watched a very effective one play out.
