Getting There
interCaribbean from PLS to
JAGS. We flew on a Beach 99 -
twin turbo, 15 passengers, 1x1
seating with the cockpit open
to passengers. Returning, we
were on the larger Embraer

Going to JAGS the Beach was
weight limited and as a result
our bags stayed in PLS - a
frequent occurrence that
should be considered. The bags
caught up with us about 9PM
the day of our arrival.

Excess baggage charges were
reasonable - we paid $50
outbound and $25 returning to
