It’s less complicated from Culebra to SJU airport. Next time I will prefer to leave from Isla Grande airport to Culebra !!
10 seat Cesna. Equal parts transportation and adventure. 20 minute hop at 10000 feet and 160 mph, sitting 10 feet from the pilot. Panoramic views of the island. Very simple boarding, very low stress. VQS airport tiny, undeveloped. Highly recommended flight, Cape Air doing a great job here.
Very smooth flight and landing. Pilot delivered his safety instruction in such a monotone that it wasn’t easily understandable. Words were said but he didn't communicate to us. If he was communicating to someone he cared about, he would have used inflection and other nuances of speaking. Virtually all emphasis was removed so it was just blah blah blah (really fast, like the end of a Pharma commercial)
My pilot on Cape Air was AMAZING!!!! I hoping that next time I fly I have him as my pilot. He made me feel safe and secure in his skills.
It was not what I had expected but it was a great way to see the landscape.
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable. It is too hard. My muscles fell asleep"
Pros: "Pilot did a great job, flight was as smooth as glass for the 7 of us passengers!"
Pros: "Such a small plane didn’t expect the seats to recline. Liked the view but Boy is it warm onboard"
Cons: "Not much you can change on a puddle jumper"
Pros: "Considering I was a bit scared flying on a small plane my pilot was excellent. I enjoyed this flight so much. It was spectacular!"
Pros: "Flight from Havre to Billings was fine, from check in through security and to the flight. Smoke from CA, OR, NV fires really limited the view, but CapeAir did fine with their service"
Cons: "Seats are a little small, but that is to be expected in such a small plane. Other than that, the flight was great."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Too much noise in the cabin. Ear protection should be recommended by airline."
Pros: "They are very organized small air line . Our flight was on time"
Pros: "***Our luggage did arrive as promised. ***Our flight from Tortola was cancelled, almost ensuring we would miss our connecting flight from St Martin. Thankfully some employees at the airport (Don't know to what airline they belonged, I don't recall seeing a single WinAir employee the entire time) hired a charter TurboProp for all of us (about 15 people). I think the kudos go to the airport rather than WinAir."
Cons: "*** If you are travelling to the BVI's and travel on WinAir, be aware that if your checked luggage weighs the limit that it will most likely come the next day. This happened to my girlfriend and I on separate occasions. While we did both receive our luggage the next day, there was no communication from WinAir. I had to call them repeatedly and stress the urgency with getting the baggage (I was on a chartered boat. I didn't want to hold the boat up for my bag). My theory is that the luggage gets sent on a boat from St Martin to Tortola as heavy bags can't be brought onto the island hopper airplanes they use to shuttle between the islands. *** After waiting at the Tortola Airport in the departures area for about an hour (about 10 minutes before our plane was to take off) I hadn't seen a single WinAir employee. I finally asked an employee of another airline if they could tell us what was going on. About 15 minutes later someone (Airport rep??) came out and told us our flight was cancelled and that they had booked us a charter turboprop to ensure we get there on time. After about 3 minutes we were ushered out to a plane that was loaded with our luggage and ready to go."
Pros: "I love flying Winair between SXM and EUX. The flights are short, safe, and provide a beautiful view of the beautiful islands."
Pros: "There is a magnificent view of the island on the way in. Make sure you have a camera ready!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. They don't offer connecting the bags with other airlines. I wish it could be a better option"
Cons: "Terrible flight, over an hour late and no one knew how late was the flight...will never fly again with this company, will use Air St Barth..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed up to 45 minutes due to lack of grounds staff to load luggage on plane"
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight (a bit of turbulence). Great pilots and counter personnel were friendly"
Cons: "Left late, no update to passengers to say it was delayed."
Pros: "After booking through kayak, they lost my reservation and I was put on standby. I was treated very rudely at check in and I almost missed the flight."
Delay flight more than 8hours waiting and poor customer service!
Plane was extremely small so mind the size of your carry on
Other than lack of snacks, everything else went very well.
They don’t keep you updated on the flight status very well. It was late but nothing said
Pros: "Nothing!!! Horrible airline with horrible staff members."
Cons: "Everything. The staff and crew of Intercaribbean airlines are very unprofessional and not helpful at all. On top of the flight delays all the luggage for that particular flight was left in Kingston. Everybody was rather nonchalant and unapologetic about the situation. I was told I would get the the following day. The next day only two of my three bags showed up. I was not compensated for the inconvenience and was told point blank that they will only deliver one of my bags to my address even though they were the reason I had NONE of my luggage in the first place. They are disgusting!!! I would never recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "A long walk to the D3 gate, but there were no amenities there I.e. snacks (to be fair a new terminal is under construction)"
Cons: "There was no air. I understand when you are on the ground it can be limited but even after getting to altitude there was no air conditioning."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over three hours, apparently it is a regular occurence."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "The plane had a problem that forced us to turn around right after take off and as of this writing we still don’t know what’s going on or how long we are stuck here. Planes are old and apparently maintenance could be better."
Cons: "Was a bit difficult understanding the flight attendant, she had a thick Spanish accent"
There was nothing to like about this airline and everything needs improvement
Pros: "Nothing the flight was super late and there was no communication as to why or even and announcement to say it was late. I missed my flight to France lost a night in a hotel and missed an important event on my itinerary."
Cons: "My flight"
Cons: "it was too hot at the waiting gate in San Juan and the flight was delayed for about one hour and fifteen minutes. the terminal building smelled of mold."
Cons: "the arrival process in San Juan was horrible. passengers walk in the sun towards immigration and customs is way too long. Standing and waiting in line at immigration without any immigration officer took almost 25 minutes. that was horrible."
Cons: "1 and half late departure, sat at gate with no air in plane, and after landing sat in packed shuttle while crew stood by plane talking"
Cons: "A lot of standing around. Gate crew calls everyone up to depart and we sit standing around for 20 min before they are ready for us to head out to the aircraft. This happened on both legs of the flight. Not very efficient use of time. Return flight was an hour late."
Cons: "Tried to deny my friend from boarding the flight with her legal assistant dog. They even held the plane. Then made up a rule that was illegal."
Pros: "It was easy to check in and everything was on time."
Cons: "We were informed that our flights did not exist upon arriving to the airport on our honeymoon. It is unclear if this was the fault of the booking agent Airfare.com or Air Antilles / Air Guyane / Winair. We had to fly out the next day, giving up a day on our honeymoon and our non refundable hotel reservation. On our return flight, we missed our connection due to an hour delay in which were never given an explanation and then received zero assistance on rebooking. We ended up having to book another flight back to the states. All in all, flying with this airline cost about $2000 and a lost day of our honeymoon. Never, ever fly with them."
