LIAT woes continue

Members of the Leeward Islands Airline Pilot Association (LIALPA) continued their industrial action against LIAT for two days since the 7/6/17.

The strike results from compensation concerns by the pilots, particularly concerning the operation of LIAT’s ATR 72 aircraft, which is more difficult to operate and therefore requires correspondingly higher compensation, according to the airline’s pilots.

LIAT and its owner-governments have called the move “unreasonable” with no regard to the financial status of the airline, claiming that the strike would only harm the Caribbean people.
