Thats return and it is economy "delight" which im told is a (small) step up from basic economy To be fair, thats not too dissimilar from pre-covid prices and the terms and conditions mean it's almost an "open" ticket as available in years gone by (you could just pop upstairs at the airpprt to what used to be the virgin office and make changes for £50tt. You could only do this when the flight was in though as the aircrew were the ones re-booking you) .

What does immdiately strike though is that economy seats sell out quickly and the price increases dramatically as supply shortens so pre-planning much more important at the moment. Im guessing this is secondary to the routings with Barbados and Antigua bound pax booking up quickly.

94 disembarked from that first flight. Virgin still reporting 29 Jan for their relaunch.

Thanks for the info Paul. Price not too bad if a return.... enjoy your economy 'delight' !
I'll be sticking with BA as I am retired staff. And, as you say, as the flight fills up - the price increases, so good tip there for everyone.
Enjoy Tobago, and we hope to get there at some point during 2022.

Hi, we are planning to visit Castera in March does anyone know if the waterfall, bread ladies, shops in general are open after 12.00 noon. Just wondering if it’s ok to walk freely. Also, does anyone know how to get hold of Porridge or Milk, misplaced their numbers.
Many thanks, Fiona

Porridge’s telephone number is 18687663656.
I messaged a friend who lives in Tobago and she sent this to me.

Good morning,

I am currently in Castara and can confirm the bread ladies are doing a great business on Thurs and Sat on the beach. They had pumpkin and whole wheat bread, coconut tarts and drops.

The waterfalls follow beach openings however many tourists were escaping to the local waterfalls throughout the day.

Word is beaches are open until 2pm starting tomorrow, Monday Jan 16. I understand no loud music or alcohol yet on beaches. I rarely hear loud music at any time.

As for businesses, a few more opened as of Friday. I heard Cas creole's loud music last night, d lime was rocking and Chinos too. Chino did have small BBQ with steep pan a week ago. Boathouse had Fri supper and open for lunch except Sat. No drumming as yet.

Ducks rest, nearby ice cream shop, small trinket shacks, and a few rest are open on main Street. Rias is doing take out orders. Things are looking up.

Overall this last week had some activity though still quiet.

Be sure to look for the hand made leather slippers guy on the bridge. Spar can custom make you a pair in various widths as well.

Castara is waiting for you!
bless and safe travels.

PS yes, you can walk freely.

Up until last week many locals walked alone with masks. This is now easing up as they are limjn without masks in some instances. Your experience may vary.

Have fun!
bless and safe travels.
