I’m going to go out on a wing here (a wing, get it? LOL) and make a bold prediction. I predict that within ten years (maybe less), the Williams brothers (Sir Charles O. Williams and Ralph ‘Bizzy’ Williams) will provide an airline service to Barbadians and eventually, Caribbean citizens as well.
What am I basing this prediction on? Have a look at today’s Nation newspaper and you might see why (and possibly disagree with me). The front page headline, ‘SIR CHARLES’ WINGS,’ gives details on the Williams’ brothers plans to purchase their own plane to transport them and their employees across the region (for business meetings, etcetera).

It does not spell confidence in the regional transportation system when these two leading successful Barbadian businessmen could be driven to buy their own plane. We wonder how their good friend, the Prime Minister feels about the move? After all Barbados is a major shareholder in LIAT!
