    Is the inclusion of “registered in Bermuda” supposed to be the pat on the head that makes everyone feel good ? Just like the America’s Cup and the sweeping generalizations about “it was good for Bermuda”. One day someone will just have to explain what that means. Check Update’s website; they’re Irish and proud of it, no mention of being “registered in Bermuda”. That’s for local consumption.

    Update? From Dublin? and Bermuda needs them for what?

    • BDA And Proud says:

      Dublin airport > Bermuda airport. Our systems are prehistoric and need all the help they can get. Stop being xenophobic.

    Right on Aecon keep it going for Bermuda and nevermind the stupid noise!

  6. Hmm says:

    Perhaps there is no one in Bermuda who installs AIRPORT CONVEYORS. Does no one think before they comment? They have to go overseas for these things otherwise the airport wouldn’t have a conveyor to bring you out your luggage.

    Oh and by the way, MEP stands for mechanical, electrical and plumbing not mechanical, engineering and plumbing.
