hat commitment is coming from the regional airline’s chief executive officer (CEO) Julie Reifer-Jones, who said they would push to continue their daily operating schedule.

  1. Ahem, ahem, ahem… WHEN did Reifer-Jones become the top decision-maker at LIAT? Has she now promoted herself from CFO to CFO to Shareholder Chairman?

    Enquiring minds want to know…

  2. Riefer jones you must go because you are not qualified enough to be getting that kind of salary from Liat. The cash strapped airline cannot afford your salary for while the airline cannot make a profit people like you have run out of ideas
