Did The Barbados Tourism Authority Send A Press Release To BFP?

Where Did The Air India Press Release Come From?

Hi Folks

Several readers have commented and written us emails asking how Barbados Free Press received a copy of the Barbados Tourism Authority press release on the Air India cancellation. (You can read the press release here)

Did the Barbados Tourism Authority send us a press release?


One of our insider friends at The Nation News sent us a copy of the press release. (And they didn’t do it from work, so the Nation’s IP guy shouldn’t be so eager to look at the email records!)

    BFP…. Why are you revealing your source. Nation News management will be hunting down your operative.
    Hope he is under deep cover.

    The powers that be must be going bananas …… and so they should given the path they chose which is rapidly leading towards banana republic status for Barbados!!

    Why don’t we import some expats to do these jobs which O$A and the boys are making such a mess of?

    Did I hear it correctly?

    That Dennis Johnson stated on Down to Brass Tacks yesterday that one person that had booked the cancelled Air India flights Barbados/Mumbai/Barbados had their monies refunded TWICE?
    Who refunded it twice, the BTA?

    How many people had booked and what is the financial loss to the BTA (taxpayer)?

    Adrian l,

    Why would you suggest the refunds are from BTA, The agency you pay the money to is usually responsible for the refund, I am unaware of monies paid to BTA for flight are you show the facts, check Going Places Travel, I am sure Mr Weatherhead or Mr King can give you true position, Its just like when you refund guests at your hotel. Your attempt to discredit the BTA at every turn in unbecoming and basically makes you look like a sulking brat – no doubt sulking that you are not on the board. I understand from a reliable source that you once said that you would stop the provocotive statements if you had a place on the board. Stop trying to mislead the public with your FICTION.

    You claim no political affiliation but admit working on DLP tourism Policy……GUILTY by association.
