Wow, that's terrific. Back in PanAm days these cities couldn't support a mainline plane, so all those stops were milk runs with the planes stopping every hour in a train/bus route like schedule.

In addition to a lot of folks from these CA countries who live and work in the States, I wonder how much of that traffic is business people? Interesting to know.

Looks like these markets are maturing nicely.

Probably zero. All business traffic reaches +/- zero between now and January 3rd or so, at least in Europe and the Americas.

I'm sure it has something to do with the MAJOR amounts of cargo that is brought aboard to CA.

Yeah, this all people trying to get home for Christmas and manifest bags. The Houston paper this morning showed a picture of the border crossing at Harligen TX and it was all backed up with people going south with the vehicle they were driving and one in tow to sell.

Most CO/DL/AA Centralamerican destinations could support nightflights some nights in Dec and Jan. Any idea why the airlines many times preffer to leave their planes overnight instead of flying them back to their hubs around these days?
As Why they preffer to use widebody aircraft this time of the year may have to do with the amount of baggage the passengers take with them.



I don't work for COPA Airlines!
