Virgin to Antigua
You may well be right, but flights on other days are showing and
bookable. Don't want to make a big thing of it (sounds a bit spoiled, complaining about missing one day on the beach) but, as you say, why would they drop a rotation on what must be the key day without some serious reason. Of all Caribbean islands, Antigua and Barbados are the only ones with direct services out and back Sat.
Could there be some problem with VC Bird management and negotiating next year's slots? Wouldn't think so, as Virgin must be one of their biggest assets but, given the appaling way the place seems to be run, it wouldn't surprise me too much.
Has anyone else experienced the staggering time it takes to clear a 747-load through Immigration at ANU? I am an airport planner and this is the longest processing time per pax I have seen anywhere around the world. How they will cope with the Cricket World Cup, I shudder to think.
