  1. Have the honorable Worl Boss gotten rid of the filed Guynese Administrator? I gues snot because LIAT in the same pile of doodoo it has always been. Have the LIAT staff been paid for any 2021 salary? I guess not….sounds like an 1800 plantation to me.

    Worl boss, get rid of the failed exec team. They brough the company whwre it is are they going to take it out? Get rid of the vindictive mal-administrator. He can’t find no investors, he cannot come up with salary monies, he cannot pay for anything that the airline needs and he definitely cannot save LIAT. It is rumored that an old colleague said he did not pass his accounting certification neither…but…just might be rumors..
