(Barbados Nation) Naive and unreasonable!
That’s how LIAT responded to founder of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Ajmal Khan, who described the intra-regional airline’s service as “a travesty” and blamed poor service for having to spend millions of dollars extra to transport teams in the just ended Twenty20 cricket tournament.
In a statement yesterday, two days after Khan made the comments in a front page story in the SUNDAY SUN, LIAT said CPL officials waited until the eleventh hour to contact the carrier concerning the logistics of transporting the teams and crew.
“LIAT looks forward to the CPL becoming a permanent fixture on the West Indies cricket scene, and would be privileged to be part of a transportation solution. However, it is naïve and unreasonable to expect the airline to take on the full responsibility, given such late notice, even under the best of circumstances,” the carrier said.
