Was the ILS off, or were the winds really erratic enough to mess up their glideslope THAT much?

That particular runway doesn't have an ILS.

Oooof.

That explains it then.

I thought St. Maarten was a fairly straightforward approach that just was really close to a beach. That changes everything. Knowing the whole "no ILS" business, St. Maarten now seems like the closest thing (post-Kai Tak) to landing a civilian airliner on a carrier.

From what I understand, when you're on final, you can't really see the runway well until you're within a mile or two. They were coming down through a storm, with no ILS, and poor visibility. They were lucky.

Talk about a pucker-inducing experience. I can only imagine coming out of cloud cover and seeing nothing but water for nearly 1/2 mile. I'm sure that was a "when your career flashes in front of your eyes" moments for that poor flight crew.

WestJet came out and said that Flightaware showed they didn't get below 500 feet on the approach. The only thing is that Flightaware doesn't read below 500 feet for Princess Juliana.

When it comes to the airlines, plausible deinability is anything they can put their fingers in their ears and go "LA LA LA" until it goes away.

Compared to the healthcare industry, even the shadiest US airlines seem like George "I cannot tell a lie" Washington himself in terms of integrity and transparency. Talk about a house of cards...

It's always fun when the military decides to poke fun at things like that.
