What is this Legos tin box I'm flying in? It says a340. Unlike a fine French wine, this aircraft does not get better with age. The plane is so old that it has an ash tray. That could pass as cultural difference if smoking was allowed on the plane. It is not.
It's only an hour from BGI to POS. We took LIAT which cost $106/pax. The plane is an ATR 42-600 prop plane. Nothing spectacular to discuss. It took off and landed safely. The bags were free...
