(CMC):

Dr Ralph Gonsalves, the chairman of the shareholder governments of the regional airline, LIAT, has acknowledged that the airline has been a terrible disappointment to the Caribbean travelling public in recent months.




LIAT shareholder governments are Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Barbados and St Vincent and the Grenadines.



Gonsalves, who is the St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, told a town hall meeting in the US that while not excusing the Antigua-based airline for the situation, the computer system of one of two aircraft LIAT recently purchased had developed problems.



He said engineers have been dispatched from France to resolve the problem.
