This is good news. I believe the current flight is with a 757-200 that flies from IAH-Quito-GYE-IAH. I don't know if this has already been posted but CO has announced service from IAH to POS and MBJ. There has been quite a bit of expansion out of IAH lately. It should get even better when the new FIS building opens.

Will that affect the EWR-BOG-UIO flight that is currently being operated?

what equip is the EWR-BOG-UIO operated on? A friend of mine frequently travels on this route and he swears it is a 738, but then again, he called a MD-88 the other day a 757. (clearly not interested in aviation).

cheers




I'm all in favour of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with keyboards.

Hi WindowSeat:

The EWR-BOG-UIO-BOG-EWR route is operated daily with a B757-200; The IAH-BOG-IAH daily flight is operated by a B737-800.

I've never seen a CO Md-88 in Colombia.

Greetings

Besides AA, CO is the US airline that is putting its stakes in Latin America, it has more destinations to Latin America than any other US airline, after AA, it is the biggest in terms of number of passengers.

It has expanded its agreement with CM and now codeshares to 107 US destinations from PTY.

Lately it has also started a number of flights from IAH to Caribbean destinations such as Kingston, Montego Bay, Port of Spain.

Will it take the importance Pan Am once had in the region ?

On that topic of CO being the second largest carrier to Latin America, has AA had much of their market share taken away by CO? AA flies mostly 757s and the occasional 777 to Latin America, whereas CO is all 737s. I would think that CO has taken a small bite out of AA in the region, but I'm sure that AA is still king by a wide margin.

On an entirely different note, does CO ever plan to expand to more countries in South America? Uruguay, Paraguay, and Chile are three countries that come to mind - I'm sure there are more. AA is the only American carrier that flies to these places at the moment.

AA's dominance is still huge. Not only do they fly to more destinations, but they offer more frequencies, and, as you said, use bigger aircraft. One exaple is Caracas. Both CO and AA fly to Caracas. While Continental offers a daily flight to Houston and Newark (frequency on EWR-CCS varies by season), AA offers 52 weekly flights between Caracas and five cities: Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Dallas, New York City, and San Juan, plus daily service to Maracaibo, Venezuela.

In Sao Paulo, Continental offers daily service from Houston and Newark. Starting in June, American Airlines offers three daily flights to Sao Paulo just from Miami, plus one more each from New York City and Dallas. Continental is also missing in a key market: Buenos Aires.

They still have excellent coverage of the region. They are starting Roatan, Honduras service this summer, one destination American Airlines does not fly to (though that is likely to change soon).

Cory6188,

AA is absolutely the biggest US carrier to Latin America, in 2003, it flew roughly 7 million passengers to Latin America and CO just 3 million, however, CO is growing at a faster pace.

IAH-GRU-GIG and EWR-GRU-GIG are both operated by 762s and occasionally a 764 to IAH when demand justifies.

Soon CO and DL will start codesharing flights above plus DL operated daily 763 GRU-ATL.

Cheers

Even if CO wanted to serve EZE, they wouldn't have the aircraft to do so at the moment.

Sure they do, there is plenty of growth within the current fleet to cover these things.

Nor the government authority.

Actually they were given authority to fly to EZE, but due to the horrible state of the economy at the time, they declined to take the routes.

I thought that their rights to fly to Argentina expired.

"Even if CO wanted to serve EZE, they wouldn't have the aircraft to do so at the moment."

Corey this is the second or third thread I've seen you make this assertion which is un-true, CO this Summer is adding a Second Daily 777 to Tel Aviv, a Second Daily flight to CDG from EWR, upgrading Dublin from a 757 to a 767-400, going ten times weekly from IAH-AMS, operating 767-200s to LAX from EWR, 767-400s to SDQ etc..

It's not the lack of aircraft rather the shitty economy in Argentina which keeps CO and DL away.

Exactly, which is why, as said, they don't have the government authority.

That doesn't help explain why Delta is resuming ATL-EZE on 1 December, American inagurated DFW-EZE last November (goes daily in June), and American is supposedly going to file with DOT soon for a third MIA-EZE frequency.

AA's JFK-CCS flights are not daily, neither are CO's from EWR but CO still operates more flights per week.

CO has AA beat from NYC to Latin America, CO flies from EWR to:

Belize City (once weekly nonstop)
San Pedro Sula (once weekly via Belize City)
Guatemala City
San Salvador
San Jose
Panama City
Lima
Caracas
Sao Paulo
Bogota
Quito (via Bogota)
Guayaquil (via Panama City)
Mexico City twice daily
Cancun double sometimes three times daily
Cozumel once or twice weekly
Puerto Vallarta twice weekly
Acapulco once weekly
Los Cabos twice Weekly

"They still have excellent coverage of the region. They are starting Roatan, Honduras service this summer, one destination American Airlines does not fly to (though that is likely to change soon)."

Houston's just starting to grow, they did not even open the new FIS yet.
