    Question about Liat Airlines

    Advertisements



    I have to take Liat Airlines into Antigua.

    I read on their website they have stricter baggage allowance rules. Like only one checked in bag and second checked in bag is charged.

    But my question is in regards to hand baggage. It says I am only allowed one hand baggage and it cannot weigh more than 15 lbs. Does the airline weigh your hand baggage? What if it goes over weight? How strict are they on hand baggage.

    They usually dont weigh the carry-on baggage, but they do look to see if the baggage is "too big" to fit in the overhead compartment. (It's subjective for them).

    1) STAY AWAY FROM LIAT AIRLINES!!!!!

    2) Since you've already purchased your ticket, might as well make the best of it.

    - they wont weigh your hand luggage but if it looks too big they'll take it from you and check it in as you board the plane

    - as a result, there is less space for all the big bags that are checked...which leads to the inevitable issue of you not getting your bags until a day or two AFTER you land in Antigua. This is because Liat will put any extra bags on the next flight or the flight after next. Just pray that your bags get on your flight.

    - Liat sucks

    - I'd recommend being the first one on the plane and the first one in the airport to check your bags. This will help with the bag situation, but won't help with Liat cancelling flights for b.s. reasons

    - Liat sucks

    - If your flight is cancelled and you miss a connecting flight or you have to stay overnight somewhere......GIVE THEM HELL!!!! they won't want to give you a hotel voucher or cough up any money but if you raise hell they will

    - Never fly Liat...ever

    I agree with all of the above. Unfortunately antigua is a Hub for Liat. Us Airways will resume flights to/from antigua on feb 16th so maybe we'll have better luck leaving next semester. And there is always American Airlines which has flights to san juan..

    Liat Luggage Restriction

    Liat just changed their carry on luggage policy. They limit you to one carry on that is 15 lbs and that one carry on is inclusive of a laptop bag. By the way, we flew Liat from Dominica to Puerto Rico and it was by far the worst experience we have ever had on an airline. Unfortunately, they are the main airline for us to fly while in Dominica. American Eagle is the only other airline that flies there and they are cutting way back. If I can try to help it we will try not to fly Liat in the future. They have no customer service, they are unorganized, they don't know how to communicate, and they are basically the worst airline in existence.

    And all of the aforementioned reasons are why Liat is only a caribbean airliner.
