ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada - Canadian-based Sunwing Airlines Inc. says it is not bothered by Grenada's lack of a welcoming ceremony for its inaugural flight to the southern Caribbean island.

The absence of formal fanfare for the Nov. 23 flight prompted an outcry from the island's tourism industry and led to the suspension of Grenada's top tourism official.
But Sunwing vice president Lawrence R. Elliott says in a letter received Sunday by local reporters that the airline was "not offended by any lack of a formal greeting for the first flight into Grenada."
Even so, the island will try to make things right with a formal welcoming ceremony for Sunwing on Monday.
