President chavez visits Dominica Photo by Daylife

There is an ongoing debate among Dominicans and Airline Passengers as to whether or not it was good judgment by the Government deciding on closing the airports in Dominica to facilitate the visit of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez on Saturday June 13,2009.

The closure resulted in many Dominicans as well as visitors were stranded – wondering what was going on before any word was given that their flights had been canceled due to security precaution for the visit of Venezuelan President Chavez.

Honourable Vince Henderson Minister for Foreign Affairs spoke on the Hot Seat this morning and stated that an apology had been issued Saturday afternoon on behalf of the government to those affected by the cancellation of Airline flights. He further stated that government will compensate those affected by the closure and will meet the overnight expenses of LIAT customers stranded in Antigua and Barbados.

But many Dominicans did not accept the explanation coming from the Minister, and thinks that closing the Airports was purely bad judgment on the governments part.

Question:Do you think closing the Airports was excessive and totally unnecessary? Have your say in the comments below.

The Troubled Regional carrier, LIAT (1974) Ltd recently announced changes to its baggage policy. According to the company’s press release the new changes are aimed at ensuring a consistent delivery of service to all passengers, especially t during this busy time of the year.

As a consequence, with effect from December 1st 2008, the free baggage allowance for all LIAT services will be set at one piece at a maximum of 50 lbs (23 kgs.). Further, the maximum overall size per piece will be 62 inches (157 cms).

In addition, passengers will be allowed one piece of cabin baggage inclusive of a laptop at a maximum weight of 15 lbs.(7 kgs.) and maximum overall dimensions of thirty-six inches (36ins) or ninety-one centimetres (91 cms.).

Passengers are also asked to note that extra pieces of baggage (that is, pieces in excess of the above allowance) will be subject to excess baggage charges and will only be accepted on a space available (standby) basis.

LIAT Chief Executive Officer, Mark Darby said given that these changes could have implications for perishable items packed in airline luggage, LIAT also urged customers not to pack perishable items in their checked luggage. He said customers should note that perishable items would not be accepted in standby baggage.

———-My Personal Note———-

Personally, I think company needs a major restructuring – from the LIAT executives down to the ground handling crew, after what happened with passengers luggage during the Independence Reunion Celebrations. I’m afraid a lot of people be looking for alternative ways to get Dominica this holiday Season.

What’s your opinion on LIAT’s new baggage policy, and what do you think of the Regional carrier on-a-whole? Share your likes and dislikes in the comments.
