Does anyone know if you are too late for the connecting flight to Bequia, and the BA flight doesn’t land until 16:00, does BA put you up in a hotel or are you stuck at the airport?
it depends on case to case basis and reason for delay, There have been times where BA have covered the cost for alternative arrangements. I will recommend you verify this with the airlines directly, they have not had much delays recently.
Dear 525denab, British Airways' winter schedule is such that flights from London Gatwick tend to land at different times on different days in Barbados. Generally, this is their schedule (subject to change, please only use this as a guide)
15:25 BA lands from LGW - FRIDAYS - SATURDAYS
15:35 BA lands from LGW - SUNDAYS
16:05 BA Lands from LGW - MONDAYS
16:10 BA lands from LGW - TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS
Whilst the earlier landing times are favourable, SVG Air are very good at accommodating passengers, we recommend you pack essentials in hand luggage should your checked bags come a day later.
Please feel free to reach out to our own reservations team as they are very experienced in booking the inter-island connections as well as advising guests. We look forward to welcoming you to paradise soon.
We made the flight but our luggage didn’t and arrive the next day. My understanding is that if you miss the flight you might get help booking a hotel, but at your own cost. If we did again we would stay on Barbados before Bequia.
That's a difficult question. It depends on how you booked your holiday. Last month we booked our flights and hotel separately. Our BA flight arrived in St Lucia three hours late (which is unusual, I think) and we missed the Bequia connection. The next flight to Bequia was in two days (full, anyway) and there was no local hotel space. We did not wish to hang around and so went to an hotel we knew in the middle of the island ($605 a night). Then we booked a new flight for early the following morning from the Vigie airport in the north to St Vincent. From there we crossed the island in a taxi and took the ferry to Bequia. This is a short version of the story! All this is unlikely to happen to you, and we've been many times, but if it does then the above is an option. The additional cost of the delay was close to $1500 US — including about $280 in taxi fares. Take enough cash! We live in hope of getting some of it back via our travel insurance.
I believe that if we'd booked the holiday via BA then we'd have had their support — but I really don't now.
