08 January 2014 05:01:00Trying to get from Belize airport to San Pedro
We had booked a flight on Maya Island Air to fly from Belize City to San Pedro on January 2, 2013. We had been eagerly looking forward to our trip to San Pedro for some time as part of our once-per-year vacation.
They had completely overbooked the flights that morning and everyone was waiting helplessly, hoping to get on the flights they had already paid for. Everyone was being told they would be on the next flight and that it would be "just 15 minutes." This went on for hours. They seemed to be nice enough people but they must not have cared that they were destroying people's precious vacation time with their families. One man, a Dad, had put his wife and child on a flight to San Pedro as there were only 2 seats on that flight. He was told he would be on the very next flight. This nice, nice man was left stranded and separated from his family as he was told repeatedly, like the rest of us that he would be on the next flight in just "15 more minutes." Our day in Belize ruined, we finally had to leave to get back to our cruise ship, so I don't know if this good man was ever reunited with his family that day or if they were stranded apart overnight.
What a horrible airline. With such complete disregard for their passengers, I can only imagine what their safety and maintenance must be like.
