Flight delayed and no information available. I had to transfer for my flight. Getting luggage was a nightmare. Understand the challenges with infrastructure due to hurricane Maria but the area was very disorganized. The lack of information available was very frustrating.

This flight is always exciting and very short. You NEED to add landing on the worlds shortest commercial runway (on Saba) to your bucket list. The Winair pilots know their stuff and have always felt safe in their hands. Have done this run about five or six times. These are small planes..no amenities but for 20 minutes who cares?!

We had a return flight from Sint Maarten to Saint Barths. We were the only passengers, so it felt like a private plane. The flight only takes 11 minutes, the landing is a adventure! Better than the average roller coaster.

The flight came over an hour late. But the captain and crew was very friendly. It was a short 30 min flight. Only half the seats occupied. Would book them again. From dominica to guadelouoe its way better than the ferry and worth paying more.

Our luggage was lost and the return flight was cancelled with no effort from the airline to get us in time for our international connecting flight.
