I just noticed that the previous thread Central American Aviation Thread - 12! (by Carmenlu15 Jun 28 2007 in Civil Aviation) went the way of the dodo bird due to a system glitch, so I'm opening a new one...

All your comments, questions, and discussions are welcome, and your photos of GUA are even more welcome  Wink

Saludos!
Carmen


What do I know, I'm just an 'immature troublemaker with only a passing interest in aviation' (or so they say)

Just to let you know, DL has quietly added a second flight to GUA. Flight is listed as operating a 757, and I assume it's seasonal.

DL 232 GUA - ATL
Dep. 9:25 am - Arr. 2:57 pm

DL 233 ATL - GUA
Dep. 7:45 pm - Arr. 9:12 pm



nice and spacious airports in need of new airlines and flights... GUA or FRS anyone?... anyone at all?

Thank goodness we're back...I felt a little out of place in the Caribbean forum!

And on tehe DL topic.....DL are bringing back the LAX-BZE 757 in Nov....the trial run for 6 weeks has been a success with loads always above 75%. all O&D of course.....they should have just kept the route going...taking it away for 3 months will kill the momentum.

Runway extention set to open here as soon as they can move the house at the (now) end of it....

Nice to see a 2nd ATL-GUA-ATL. But given those times.. maybe an after midnight GUA departure would have meant better aircraft utilization for DL.

Well one would have to put together the 3 flights that DL has got now (310/311, 227/228, and 232/233) and check the a/c utlization, and if it's permanent, how the flight to JFK will play.

I think everyone ins Central America must b e on vacation....EVERYONE is so silent....

I know AA issued their route schedules fro Sept-Nov....yesterday...and from BZE we keep our double daily MIA (one of which usually goes away for this period) which is obviously a defensive move against NK coming in. Yields to MIA are above excellent but Sept-Nov..the loads are less than stellar....and they can't really offer a sale on the flights as the prices are fixed byour fine Governement. IMHO..AA is prepared to take a loss for 3 months in order to keep NK from even entertaining any thoughts...
But in a strange move the daily DFW becomes 3X (intead of the usual 5X)....becoming SatSunMon only till Nov 15th when it becomes daily again.

I think BZE should invite AA to fly a Sat and/or Sun STL-BZE-STL by years end. It's time AA make better use of the STL hub they inherited from TWA and at least start flying weekends to selected leisure markets.. CGM, MBJ, AUA, SJO, LIR, BZE maybe even GUA all come to mind.
AA still flies DFW-GUA, DFW-SAL?

BZE probably has but AA rather send them via DFW now...

Based on my "looks" as to whome comes off these flights....CO has a bigger share of the leisure market than AA....but AA has the business market sown up...and that is where the money is....

We jsut had a business pax in here who flew AA..IAH-DFW-BZE..when he could have flown with CO.....go figure....

Bad news to report today, CMs stock has taken a dive, it was downgraded, analyst think the frequency realignment is going to increase cost. On time for the quarter is down; still above average but down compared to previous quarters. Also a P5 Ejet overran the runway in Santa Marta and went into Sea Water, this will probably result in a write off of a brand new jet.
