Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
Yesterday 19th April 2013 at least 12 passengers left their homes as early as 12.30am from Suva and made confirmed holiday plans from as far as Hawaii to visit their exotic, incomparable island paradise.
One should have been at Nadi Airport to see the smiling beaming faces braving the cool morning, happily queued up amongst the group with baggage prepared with much love and care for their island kinsfolk.
Help the island grow its economy and have in place a regular, reliable and trustworthy service.
Should a flight get cancelled for bad weather or over booked cargo, can you consider running a supplementary flight for people as soon as possible, if not on the same day?
The people of Rotuma support Pacific Sun well by putting up with airfares that can take them two return trips to overseas destinations.
One of our nieces travelled to Rotuma three weeks ago and the same incident was experienced at Nadi Airport. She was called three times to go to the airport with three cancellations. We understand this is an ever going problem with Pacific Sun and their flight to Rotuma.
We too want the 'Best Value Under The Sun' for the Rotuma air service.
