According with a local newspaper, SJO is prepared to receive an IB A340 each Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nonstop from MAD. Nevertheless their new hubs in Central America will be GUA and PTY not SJO. MIA Hub get to an end.

All technical studies performed by Alterra Partners [administrator of SJO] shows that the airport is safe even for fully loaded departures according wit them.

As all we know, the beginning of such flights is the next October 2nd., 2004.

[Sorry to all, because I know this was discussed before, but considering this is a reality now I think this post is valid]

this new service will be opperated with a A340-300. Iberia is getting two new Airbus A340-600s for dilevery later this year. They will be out on other flights like to JFK to replace the 743 service.

I think that last incident in MAD some weeks ago, demostrate that the A340 is safe and the crew dully prepared in any emergency that I hope never occurred again.

Even more, no casualties reported.

The talk about the the A346 really has not been about performace...rather than one particular aircraft EC-INO which was the first A346 incorporated into the IB fleet. I really was not an Airbus problem but rather a Rolls Royce problem....the engines have been replaced too many times to count due to problems with the engines(not only on EC-INO) and there have also been some problems with the hydraulics...but it seems that all the issues have been resolved for the most part and the time spent out of service has been minimalized.

TACAA320: Yes the aircraft involved in the incident a few weeks ago(An aborted take off due to a warning light in the cockpit) ended how it should have....safely. Thanks to the crew and the fact that the airplane operated how it should have. Thankfully...the only thing that happened was 11 of the 12 tires going flat due to overheated brakes.

Visca Barça!!
