I was just checking the website from Aeropostal and was surprised to find a routemap:
Can anyone find a city that is placed correctly ?
The only ones are CCS, HAV, SDQ and LIM.
Not even the domestic cities are correct. Not even CCS !
Just MAR and SVZ are more or less OK. Not to mention that they don`t operate STD any more.....
I think the funniest are BOG on the international and BLA on the domestic one !

Ya but even on the old printed route maps you'd see in airline timetables (remember those?!), things were usually distorted .. theyre really just to give an impression or their network. Misprints do occur, though .. i have an old PA map where the dot for BDA is almost in Portugal and NYC's is about where ACK is! LOL
I did notice one thing on their domestic map. You pointed out that Barranquilla (Colombia) was out of place .. but actually that city is Barquisimeto (Venezuela) if you look very closely at the name. So Aeropostal gets back some credit here!

Not really, as the place they put BRM is between the Andes and the Maracaibo Lake, looks more like Valera. Barquisimeto is where you have the "V" from their Valencia. (They put Valencia where Caracas is....anyway).
Quoting RICARIZA (Reply 10): The blue border and name cities are from the Aeropostal Map. The map below is a "real" map from SouthAmerica. Red dots show the real location of the cities..
I feel sorry for you RICARIZA that they put BOG to Iquitos. But this is also a nice place.....
About MAD, it`s not only that it is too far west, but mainly because whole Europe has moved south. So for me it is too close to Dakar !
