We're landing in STT on American (assuming no strike) about 1:30. We're a group of 4, and would consider splitting a water taxi with a another group if convenient. The other option appears to be the 4:00 pm ferry from Charlotte Amalie.

We'll be heading to Captain's Compass, but I'm sure arrangements can be made.

When you arrive you will be starving. Head to the ferry and check in. Once free of bags go upstairs for lunch or walk past the McDonald’s to an excellent Deli. You could also walk down to the Greenhouse if on time. Relax, have a nice lunch. I have been critical of the ferries in the past but they are running a good operation now. Be aware that for some reason when looking at ferry times NativeSon has a weird glitch. You need to type in Nativesonferry.co
Do not use .com as it will not work.

...or just just go upstairs to The Petite Pump room where Michael will take care of you..or walk to Frenchtown just past the seaplane terminal for a choice of eateries.I Love The French Quarter Bistro for a great New Orleans dinner but not sure if they are open for lunch..

Can you clarify your statement of "assuming no strike?" We leave in 10 days. Don't freak me out! smile

Looks like any strike would occur in late December at the earliest:

There is zero chance of a strike at American this year. The flight attendants have not been released to self help by the NMB. It’s unlikely they will be anytime soon. Once they are released there is a 30 day cooling off period. That will almost certainly include a PEB(Presidential emergency board) being convened which extends that timeline another 30 days.

Thank you George! Did you hear my sigh of relief all the way in NC? We have 2 big trips coming up...a USVI/BVI trip and a Martinique-St. Lucia-Grenadines trip and didn't want to stress about airlines!

We might see you at the base on November 9 but are getting off the dock (hopefully) on the 10th.
