    Let’s not plaster the front page with these fools shooting each other but give us some positive stuff. Please let the traveling public know why DELTA is pulling stumps from BARBADOS after AUG/2017. Why is LIAT still in ANTIGUA after all the noise made by our minister .

    I think it’s plain to see one of the critical reasons why DELTA is pulling stumps on Dodge island.

    @Alex Alleyne!!! So you consider Delta pulling up Stumps in Barbados a POSITIVE thing??

    LIAT is still in Antigua where it should Remain, Because bringing it to Barbados, will NOT make it nay Better, and will only INCREASE it’s Debt when the COSTS of moving is added up, there are no Hangers, Repair Depots and any type of Maintenance facilities in Barbados, and why does anyone think that Bajans can run it any better, when they cant run BWA, BNPT, SSA, the PORT, et al.

    Finally!!! if we selfishly force a move from Antigus, what will that do to our AILING “CARICOM”
