  1. This may be that ATR 72-600’s only trip to SVG unless it could land with seats filled because taking off with the same occupied seats may a knock at the doors of their insurer. LIAT also is operating in/out of SVG like our bus system did years ago, they only fly when full or almost. Flights with few seats are deliberately delayed to throw all passengers on the next flight. Don’t be surprised if LIAT starts operating 5-6 a week in SVG.
