Message received by persons who have signed the a petition started by James Lynch on “PETITION FROM THE TRAVELLING PUBLIC TO THE OWNERS OF THE CARIBBEAN AIRLINE LIAT.

Hello again, friends!!

The LIAT Board will be meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, to “decide whether to accept the CEO’s resignation”. In today’s vernacular, “Yeah, OK. Whatever.”

Of course, nowadays REAL business people have stopped wasting money on travel and do this kind of stuff by Conference Call (but not LIAT, first these folks have to travel, then there is hotel, car, meals, tips, per diems, yadda, yadda yadda.)

But while they are off doing their usual goofing around maybe we can help this LIAT process along…

This is a registration-required Forum (that’s why there is no SPAM!!), so if you have a proposal and do not want to be registered, please just send the proposed name/s to me with the Subject line “Proposals for the next CEO” OR “Proposals for the next Board of Directors of LIAT”, and I will add them for you under my own name.

Thanks you again for your vote, for your help and for your cooperation!!

Best wishes,

Jim Lynch (Capt., Retired) of Barbados, in Canada

  1. There’s no doubting Jim Lynch’s enthusiasm for aviation, but this looks like a shameless effort to promote himself for at least a board membership. More than little caution is advised.

  2. With all the squabbling and backbiting another reason to dump that airline. How in Gods earth anything good could ever come out of LIAT. .WE have another Jerk asking people to sign Petition LOL can.t seehow this would solve LIAT financial Burden.

    • @ac

      Why do you have to refer to Mr.Lynch as a jerk. He is trying to bring awareness to to LIAT problem like anyone of us. Sometimes your crass delivery knows no bounds.

  3. People ought to face reality and stop blaming others. LIAT has a mulitiude of problems from the start. asking people to sign petition is child’s play. the finances of LIAT is the problem. many CEO board members have come and gone. now rectifying through petiton for change is asinine some people arrogance has no bounds as in this case with JIM LYNCH

    • @ac

      Your propensity for venturing into the realm of puerility and banality satisfies a core expectation by those who thrive to be sensible and constructive in engagement on BU.

      Don’t put words in the mouths of others 🙂

      About this LIAT matter it is obvious the solution is not only about privatization.

      How do we incorporate CAL which compete on many LIAT routes.

      How do we deregulate the air space of the Caribbean.

      How do we harmonize regulatory oversight.

      How do we have a system which facilitates the ideals of the RTOC.

      What role does Barbados want to play given that we do are NOT a CAT 1 jurisdiction.

      In other words, we have many technical and philosophical issues to manage.

    “People ought to face reality and stop blaming others.”

    A most profound admission to expose your duplicitous disingenuity!
    Why don’t you let what you say be your guiding principle and advise the current DLP administration to do likewise?
    It would be so good of you, ac, if you were to stop blaming OSA and the international recession for things going wrong in Bim today. Don’t you think so?
    Remember your own words “People ought to face reality and stop blaming others.”

    Now what has Mr. Lynch said or is planning to do that is so offensive to you?
    Don’t you think that the sale, privatization or total abandonment of LIAT is NOT a current reality and an alternative solution must be found to make the airline a functioning entity even if below an expectation of high standards of performance; something rare in the Caribbean by government owned commercial enterprises?

  6. First le m ROLL MY EYES second couldnKt careless what anybout think aboutv ac .Thirdly is that REAL enough FOR YOU DAVI.D. u seem to take an awful offense when others have apoint of view. – repeat no amount of management change can repair or correct the financial damage on that airline signed all the petitions just a bunch of hogwash trying grab publicty to garnish support for WHATL? LIAT is suffering from economic turbulence ..LITERALLY.

  7. For how much longer and how much more must be spent to find an alternative to LIAT economic problems. the same people who are condeming the BARBADOS govt for spending to keep the country from falling off the fIscal cliff have no problem with barbados pumpimg money into a source that has taken but hardly delivered given the billions it has receved. SICK and TIRED OF LIAT FINANCIAL WOES.

  8. The Barbados Labour Party and its members and supporters including PRODIGAL SON are constantly preaching DOOM AND GLOOM every opportunity they get.

    But think about this:-

    “A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

    Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

    She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.

    In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens.

    Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

    It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night.

    Remember to put the glass down!”

    Somehow the Barbados Labour Party does not know when or how to put the glass down!!!

  9. @ ac | September 18, 2013 at 8:49 AM |

    People ought to face reality and stop blaming others. LIAT has a mulitiude of problems from the start.

    If only you would take your own advice. Why, you have never stopped blaming the BLP for everything in Barbados despite the DLP being in power since 2008!

  10. AC is on the money.Add to the already known inefficiencies of LIAT,the industry is overburdened by the colossal amount of bureaucracy in these
    nice islands ideal for tourism.Check it.Fly from Antigua to St Kitts and its an INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT.You have to go through all the formalities of Customs,Immigration,Port Health,Plant Quarantine,Police,Special Branch
    etc.Mind you its a 10 min hop but you may as well be going to London because the procedures are the same.Do the same for a journey on any LIAT flight
    and with the exception of Guyana,flying time is brief in comparison.It all costs
    money to satisfy silly tinpot dictators and their foot soldiers.The worst is Trinidad.I sit and laugh at all the stamping I hear at that backward airport.Everybody got a rubber stamp and stamp pad.All you hear is Bam!Bam!
    And the place still dirty and corrupt as ever it was but the poor passenger paying for use of its airport facilities.If you put Jesus in LIAT as CEO,I guarantee it will make him swear.There are too many GG’s,PM’s, Ministers, Flags,National Anthems,Pledges,Customs,Immigration,Unions,Flying Rules,
    etc.We need a political and economic union and one controlling body to
    oversee the myriad rules and regulations an airline must satisfy and thus
    pay dearly for in material and human resources.And it ain’t gine happen!

    Excellent miller,

    Saw yours after I posted. As soon as I read ac, I had to respond, I think she forgets what she writes.

  12. I note David Ellis blocking people who like to talk freely to Nefertari.Neffy putting an independent spin on Barbadian political and religious bigots and David Ellis there talking his usual gobbledegook,blocking people.

  13. Just heard the High Court rejected all of COP Dottin’s argument.

    Wow this is going to be a hard slog.

  14. Carson……… you are not telling us you will get a pick on the prison farm when it comes on stream……….by the way, i think it’s a brilliant idea by the DLP, it just needs tweaking a bit.

  15. Only a few / a.holes would like to see LIAT continue inthe sad state of affairs.nothing to do with country but a well intentional plan to support teose who had invested in that crap call an airline and to support only one sector called the HOTEL INDUSTRY . meanwhile the other sectors seems of no importance to them .these are the same people who would not rest until govts hands over the treasury to them only this time LIAT is there to guy and the taxpayers sitting in the burning carnage.

    • Well ac note that your PM Stuart, to quote you, is an ahole given that he has publicly pledged Barbados’ support to the airline.

  16. @ ac | September 18, 2013 at 2:35 PM |
    “Only a few / a.holes would like to see LIAT continue inthe sad state of affairs.nothing to do with country but a well intentional plan to support teose who had invested in that crap call an airline and to support only one sector called the HOTEL INDUSTRY”

    Do the few “a.holes” include your boss man Stuart? After all he surely qualifies based on his public stated commitment to the airline and his administration’s underwriting of the majority of the airline’s debt to the CDB. We wonder if Observer would wish to see this contingent liability reported or kept away from the financial records.

    Unless you can count him in you should stop maligning people who prefer to see LIAT continue as the regional carrier but with a possible change in management and HQ location.

  17. Have anybdy figure out how much of the debt incurred to barbados ballonning budget can be assigned to the injured bird called LIAT. Shot that BIRD down now flying with broken wings at taxpayers expense.

  18. David
    Besides funding, the airline industry desperately needs an enabling environment as I have indicated above.Now if its owned by major Caricom governments what is the problem?LIAT for example would be in a position to reduce its overheads and maximize its cargo carrying capacities on its routes;
    I am stating an obvious scenario and I’m sure its known to LIAT and to the Governments concerned.

    • @Gabriel

      Whether we privatize or not we have to deal with CAL and although the T&T government has removed the subsidy it will continue give assistance in other ways. How else can you explain the removal of the subsidy but CAL advising that ticket fares will remain the same.

      The other issue why successive government have supported LIAT is because Barbados is a hub for the Souther Caribbean. The benefit/opportunity cost has to me factored in the discussion.

  19. tell me more about the “Benefit/opportunity cost, First LIAT got to break even for ac to see benefits and opportunity, if it hasn”t happened for these lo long years why make u believe it going happen now, Benefit and opportuinty are determined by the bottom line, much of which LIAT has none of..

    • Word floating around, Chairman Jean Holder who resigned 2 years ago may be asked to follow Brunton.On a related note,

      Howai gets report on CAL changes
      Finance Minister Larry Howai yesterday received the Caribbean Airlines restructuring report from interim chairman Phillip Marshall. Read more » Comments (5)

  20. David
    Trinidad has long used BWIA and now CAL as a foreign exchange earner just as Barbados continues to do with sugar so the subvention to CAL is financial in more ways than one.
    LIAT HAD a hub in Barbados and removed it back in the 80’s out of spite to the Barbados Government of the day giving another carrier permission to operate out of Barbados.Barbados’ continued support of LIAT,with which I strongly disagree, has had the effect of eliminating thousands of seats in and out of Barbados to the metro cities such as London,Toronto,New York,Miami and Fort Lauderdale served by BWIA and now CAL.Our tourism officials fly all over the globe to win airline friends but they have not gone to Trinidad to win back CAL!
    Somebody cutting their nose to spite their face.I am not sure who is worse for tourism Sealy or Lynch.Both are unfamiliar with the airline industry.

  21. @ David | September 18, 2013 at 5:56 PM |

    Was it one of those two dinosaurs who claimed that there would be no increase in CAL fares if and when the fuel subsidy is removed?

  22. @ David | September 18, 2013 at 6:47 PM |

    It seems a lot of “Bobbol” continues to go on even under the Kamla Persad-Bissessar administration which came in on a platform of change and weeding out corruption.
    The more things change the more they remain the same . Even Jack “Wannabe” Warner is calling for the removal of the Persad-Bissessar government. Could we be on the cusp of another coup as with ANR Robinson?

    On a related note about the local oil industry: It appears the government is caught between a rock and a hard place with regard to the RE push and the future financial viability of the BNOC. The Energy Minister is coming over as being saddled on the horns of a dilemma.
    Any significant replacement of fuel oil with RE to generate electricity would leave local oil drilling programme down a well (pun intended). The local crude oil is shipped to T&T and Suriname for refining into fuel oil and ‘re-imported’ for the BL&P to run its electricity generation turbines.

    Any major push towards RE, although highly praiseworthy in principle, is fraught with other challenges for the BNOC which could jeopardize the local oil drilling programme and turn BNOC into a mere storage and distribution tank farm for gasoline and diesel imports.

  23. The Quisling spoke words of comfort to the BL&P knowing that the $25 per share the Govt got from Emera gave Emera a guarantee number of years of monopolistic service.So Quisling Boyce say one thing one night and the very next night Bobby’Stumps’Morris push his finger in the ants nest and warned the assembled execs of BL&P that as LIME days as a monopoly came to an end so also will their day come to an end,so be warned.Btw I heard on the BBC that Scotland in the UK is well on the way to 100%RE and boasting about it,North Sea oil and its contribution to its economy notwithstanding

  24. @Gabriel | September 18, 2013 at 10:48 PM |
    “Btw I heard on the BBC that Scotland in the UK is well on the way to 100%RE and boasting about it,North Sea oil and its contribution to its economy notwithstanding”

    That’s a lot of ‘gas’ coming from the propaganda outlets pushing the Scottish independence agenda.
    What 100 % RE what? RE can only come in any meaningful amount from wind, wave and hydropower. How would the many vehicles be powered in Scotland unless there is widespread replacement of petrol engines with electric motors?

    Alex Salmond knows fully well Scotland needs the Union and vice versa and is only politically grandstanding.

  25. ac Notice with disgust that somebody or sumbodies deliberately using comment in which ac stated that “assholes would like to see LIAT continue its downward spiral ” noting that it would also include PM Stuart on which i beg to differ and clarify that PM Stuart is a man of integrity and knows the LAW therefore he is bound by contractual agreements. However here are those of whom ac are refering and they know who they are.

  26. @ AC

    I have just read your recent submissions.

    I have an extra capsule of Insulin which I am prepared to share to you when I am taking my 6 o’clock shot this evening.

    Judging from the dribble that you are inclined to write, I can assume that you are constantly experiencing diabetic coma, as a result of insulin shortage.

    Of course, I make the disclaimer that I am not a doctor like GP and therefore I cannot promise to advise on the right dosage for a non diabetic, nor to advise you to check that there is no air in the syringe, prior to your injecting self with same.

    Regretfully, in the event of your demise, your other compadre Cocky Locky will be wise to this process of ridding BU of idjits, under a guise of helping the Always/Constantly Catatonic (i doubt that you or he will note that that phrase also has AC/CC abbreviations), and might not take the same medication that i am recommmending so freely.

    On the other hand, given CC’s familiarity with the cretin gene, he will probably follow suit with equal alacrity.

    I will leave the capsule(s) plural for the two of you next to Grantley Adams’ statue in front of Fumble’s office later this evening.

    Please collect them before the biggest of the cretins, Fumble Stuart heself, picks them up and uses them and passes away.

    Treason is a crime punishable by death irrespective of if it is intentioned or peradventure. Robert Ross and the rest of the legal beavers here on BU will confirm.

  27. @ ac | September 19, 2013 at 10:10 AM |
    “ i beg to differ and clarify that PM Stuart is a man of integrity and knows the LAW therefore he is bound by contractual agreements.”

    Could you explain what you mean by “contractual agreements”? Arethesethesame contractual obligations you take into consideration in making your prescription for the LIAT solution.

    BTW, a man of integrity does not tell bold-faced lies neither does he renege on his word.

  28. Ryanair the UK low cost carrier ended up at the bottom of a Consumer poll with a score of 54 out of 100.The low cost carrier was voted the worst brand in Britain with consumers finding the airline “aggressive and hostile towards customers”, while staff were labelled”rude and unpleasant”.Despite a good showing in on time arrivals at destination(94% of 54000 flights)the poll felt Ryanair let them down and suggested they ‘pull their socks up’ in the ole stiff upper lip fashion I suppose.

  29. I am the same James Lynch who Posted this Petition after some 15 YEARS of staying in the traditional quiet approaches of trying to improve aviation in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. On every turn I have had doors slammed in my face – the people in power have no time for qualifications, experience and knowledge, only political influence and their friends.

    I provided my background on the Post above, as well as on the Petition, and I knew full well that by making my name public I would probably never see a benefit – in short, I do not ask for, nor expect to be, an appointee on anything to do with this government, least of all LIAT. But those who are registered on the Forum are free to post any names they wish, I exert no influence whatsoever over them.

    And Mr. Stuart knows my name well – he has seen it enough times in the last 6 years while he was Prime Minister.

    I am in contact with other West Indians – businessmen – who were kicked “off the fence” by LIAT’s latest meltdown and who have started to look for alternatives to reliably get their passengers, cargo and family in and out of their own islands.and bypass LIAT altogether. But the meltdown itself did not cause this problem, these people have been suffering from LIAT for a long time.

    One common factor in LIAT all these years has been the politicisation of the Board and CEO. It is reasonable to assume that just ONE of the current Board has a clue what is going on in the airline, and the rest are along for the free ride. The CEO, politically appointed, first and foremost satisfies the political aspirations of the shareholder Prime Ministers. After that he/she must have multiple Degrees, after that must be friends with politicians, and after that perhaps they should have some knowledge and experience of aviation and airlines.

    My Petition takes pains to point out the various failings of the Board AND takes further pains to offer solutions – this is not a hollow shouting down of authority but a practical effort to correct the incorrect.

    Brunton did not totally cause the meltdown, but I have inside information that he directly made it inevitable by his own decisions. And in the middle of it made the problems worse. To date he has not apologised nor accepted responsibility for his part in the chaos – it is all about weather, equipment, airports, delays, etc.

    The common thread in LIAT’s losses has been the Board, including the self-styled “Caribbean Aviation expert” Chairman Holder – who I am sure could not tell you the difference between a DME arc and a pitot tube.

    Aviation in Barbados is also in a shambles. The FAA, who performed the country’s inspection on behalf of ICAO for the Category assignment, gave Barbados every leeway but the CAD and Minister Shrimp-Mouth were unable to satisfy the requirements for Category 1. And this time they apparently told Barbados not to bother to try again for another ten years.

    By all means tear me apart, but nothing will change the less than sad situation both LIAT and Barbados Civil Aviation are in. Life will go on, but there is a chance LIAT will fail when the other islands make other arrangements, and lack of category 1 means Barbados will never see a serious airline start there – ever.

    The bottom line

    Barbados nor Antigua need LIAT, but the other islands do. EXCEPT that ANOTHER US$100 million of your money has just been pumped into the LIAT hole, and on this course the ship of state will be pumping a great deal more down that deep hole before long.

    I don’t need LIAT either – I now live in Canada and travel wherever I want on international scheduled carriers. But as a Caribbean aviation veteran I have seen things going wrong for decades and I have tried to influence a correction.

    If nothing happens now, that’s too bad, LIAT goes down the tubes and the Leewards are SOL. But I can look back at any time in the future with a clear conscience and – at the very least – say that I tried.

    Which is more than I can say for most of you.

    • In a report today PM Ralph Gonzales confirmed his support for Holder as Chairman. How come this man tendered his resignation two years ago and he is still around?

      @James Lynch

      Can you tell us more about Barbados’ recent failed attempt to get Cat I designation?

  30. ….”Can you tell us more about Barbados’ recent failed attempt to get Cat I designation?”

    Barbados, as the saying goes “is not ready”. I can’t put it any more simply. The politicians are “not ready”, the aviation authorities are “not ready”, the airport is “not ready”, the legislation is “not ready”, the whole environment is “not ready”.

    In ICAO’s evaluation of a country (the Category evaluation is not for an individual airport) they look first and foremost for the regulatory body – whether that be Civil Aviation Department, Civil Aviation Authority or other – to contain the range and number of qualified and interested personnel to handle the administration, evaluation and inspection of the facilities and aircraft under their registry as well as those passing through.

    Barbados Civil Aviation Department is not only in a physical shambles, it is undisciplined, short staffed, and the highest position is held by a former air traffic controller for whom that has been his sole profession for his entire career. There is no “range” to his knowledge or experience.

    Another major point ICAO is looking for is the legal framework that permits the CAD/CAA to carry out its duties free of political influence. An Authority is powerless if there are no teeth behind what they should be doing.

    It was about four years ago that the then-Minister of Transport assured me personally that appropriate legislation would being brought into force and that Barbados would seen have a Civil Aviation Authority will full authority and responsibility.

    Perhaps it was the shrimp talking, but now that he has been replaced we are all still waiting for that magic legislation to appear and for Barbados’ aviation infrastructure to be dragged screaming into the 21st century.

    Certainly I have personally been trying to get things moving on this front for some 15 years.

    The CAD is also politically directed – NOT what ICAO want to see. If there is an aircraft accident in Barbados and the Barbados authorities are part of the investigation they want to be sure that the facts will appear, and not just the politically convenient parts.

    For instance, we are all still waiting for public revelation of the Air Calypso accident decades ago – the foundation of accident reports is that they are circulated and studied so that such accidents do not happen again. But that one is still locked up and Top Secret.

    The ICAO Categorisation is a wide, sweeping evaluation. I am told that the last time the FAA was in Barbados it was for perhaps the second or third recall in the same evaluation visit where they had bent over backwards trying to accommodate the island, but the things that needed to be done – which the government knew about, no excuse – simply did not materialise.

    I was told the FAA’s parting remark was along the lines “Don’t call us again for another 10 years”. Perhaps they believed it would take that long for the local politicians to pull their heads out of their asses long enough to do things right. And they could be correct… Minister Sealy has a huge budget and all he can think about is giving most of it to tourists as an incentive to come to Barbados.

    I think what he SHOULD be doing with part of his cash is making sure the civil aviation environment is brought up to speed, thus ensuring that the gate is open for aviation investment – more airlines to start and we can bring our own people in.

    I think we can have somebody else evaluate our country within 10 years – the French or Dutch, for instance, as opposed to the “Global Policemen” Americans – but this time it is not a matter of whether the evaluators are being fair or not. Anyone with a knowledge of aviation in Barbados will tell you the same thing – Barbados is simply “not ready”,

    Freundel Stuart & Co. have been dropping the ball for a long time. I know I am being insulting when i say ai appears he needs his sleep but, for God’s sake, his practice of silence and allowing problems to resolve themselves has been taken way too far (IMHO).

    • @James Lynch

      Is it not true to suggest that under a BLP administration for 1; years this was also NOT a priority?

  31. For a long time now I have been saying that “we ent ready at all”. Wunna doan notice that every time a politician open he mout it is about how great we are and how well we have done someting? Stupse

  32. “Is it not true to suggest that under a BLP administration for 1; years this was also NOT a priority?”

    I am not particularly interested in politics, but over the last 40 years since I moved on from being a Controller at Seawell/Adams the CAD has gone steadily downhill in staffing and general conditions. Every Director since Ted Went has been an Air Traffic Controller, including Leric Hunte who had been a Controller in Trinidad. There were some spectacularly bad ones, such as Clyde Outram, but mainly an effective Director needs to have a wide range of experience, because they are dealing on a daily basis with private, commercial, military and governmental demands as well as applications for engineering and pilot licenses and overseeing such a range of activities.

    Now instead of training Bajans to do the work or recruiting Bajans with experience – such as I, who has been applying for 15 years – they are employing foreigners instead. Which suggests that they probably are doing something about the bad situation – they are making it worse.

    So yes, whatever political administrations that have existed since the 1970s have dropped the ball. I have to remark, though, that in these challenging times the correct attitude for politicians and governments is to be pro-active, not let situations get even worse.

    And they KNOW about the problems, it’s not as if anything is a surprise.

    Are the shrimp at parties really are that good?

  33. The HoGs met last Tuesday (5 days ago) about regional aviation (again). And we have no news whatsoever on what they discussed or decided (again).

    The LIAT Board met last Wednesday (4 days ago) to decide whether (or not ???) to accept Brunton’s resignation.
    And we have no news whatsoever on what they discussed or decided there either (again).

    It would seem the word “arrogance” is far too mild for outr anointed and appointed leaders.

    Whose money is it, anyway? Are these private companies and secret decisions that are none of our business?

    I have been calling for CHANGE at LIAT, it seems I need to call for CHANGE in our politricks, too.

    • In Barbados the business of LIAT likely falls under the direct responsibility of Miister Richard Sealy and overall responsibility to PM Stuart. These two men have become renown at home and abroad for their taciturn nature. It does not matter that Barbadosis the biggest shareholder of the four. Perhaps PM. Ralphie will come public soon although pushing the decrimalization of hemp has priority at the moment.

  34. My business partner and I had a conversation with Sealy and his “aviation advisor” already to seek support for a new aviation project we planned. Somehow within two days the same idea was miraculously being pursued by someone else in Barbados – I’m not very impressed by those two jackals so far.
