The pilots land well and the flight attendants were appropriate but the airline is poorly managed. Our morning flight from Bonaire back to the US was cancelled. The airline personnel at the airport claimed they emailed us but it was never received. The taxi driver stated this is a common occurrence for this airline. They couldn't accommodate us until 5pm...

Literally have changed times for our flight 5 times. Total farce of an airline, changing at will and leaving people stranded for hours. Totally screws up your vacation.

Insel changes the flights and cancels without any notice and leaves you stranded trying to figure out schedules. Bonaire and Curaçao need a ferry, Badly!

This is the biggest piece of GARBAGE airline I've EVER had the displeasure of dealing with, PERIOD!!!!!!

First time they moved me on my return flight to Curacao from 1:15 in the afternoon to like 8am. That would leave...

The flights almost always have delays which they do not inform you about, they cancel regularly and the service is terrible.
