Full disclosure, I don’t like small planes. I love Vieques so much that I’m willing subject myself.
So, I prefer a serious pilot, not the prankster. However, a little effort so we think you like your job would offer peace of mind. Had same pilot twice on this 3 week visit. Same experience. Also used the competitor airline on one flight this trip, review posted. Gate crew was also a bit gruff at Vieques. Management just needs to spend a little more time training employees, even if they have been there for years. Their fleet is newer than the competitors, higher ticket price, just need to pretend their passengers are necessary for their livelihood. Other passengers also made similar comments.
Always felt safe, on time, and visually well-kept fleet.
Use your noise-cancelling headphones on all these commuter flights. Also, phones OFF, not just airplane mode.
