Airliner World had a small bit in the March issue, saying that they had broken their own distance record with the A310. Apparently it had done SAL-PRG nonstop, bypassing the usual fuel stop at Isla Margarita.
EDIT: Which is impressive, given that that routing apparently is 400km longer than the range of the A310-300

Quoting Juventus (Reply 4): Flightaware shows the flight not stopping anywhere, Prague-Cancun, 11 hrs/20 mns. It does seem like to long a flight for an A310.... what's the range of that airplane, anybody know??
Because now is operated by A332 or A343 but when I was living in HAV they have a technical stop in Nassau, not always but sometimes (because winds).

4.350 NM and PRG-CUN is more than 4.800.
SAL-PRG (5.291NM) is much longer, but Westbound could be done because strong tailwinds but eastbound, just forger about it.......never ever.

Quoting Gkirk (Reply 6): CSA's PRG-CUN flights do indeed stop at MAN both ways, refuelling only
Not always. If the winds are favourable then they will go non-stop. If not then they will stop. Haven't seen one around in a few weeks though. Most flights are operated by OK-YAC although one other A310 has passed through MAN.
