The airline said it did not know the reason why the planes have been prevented from flying to Caracas. "We are trying to find it out. We are contacting our representatives to take the necessary measures immediately."
There have been some irregularities with the security certificate of one DC9-50 as well (this was the reason the plane was grounded).
As far as I know the 2 737 from Sky King are operating and all domestic flights are operating normal as well.
The scary thing is that the airline seems to be without CRS because Sabre (their "host") shut down their service. I guess due to non-payment. So reservations are again only taken by phone.
The airline has a deadline by INAC until today to return to their normal operations and to withdraw the rented Sky King aircraft from domestic service.

I tried to book in Venezuela when their system mysteriously went down because of a "glitch" I was told at the Barquisimeto office and then again when I called US reservations.
I do not know if anything can be done to save Aeropostal, but this has to stop. They cancelled all their flights to Porlamar last week, leaving the passengers stranded at Maiquetia without an explanation nor compensation, just incredible.
