We have not yet made a decision on subsidising LIAT. What we have agreed to is a meeting to discuss some of the issues relevant to the airline. We look forward to continued dialogue with the OECS and other stakeholders on the future of the airline.” Over the weekend, Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne said that the governments of Grenada and St Lucia have agreed to subsidise the operations of LIAT. These governments have been two of the airline’s biggest critics and a
