I see on Wikipedia it says BA previously served Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Does anyone know when they stopped flying there? Was it a typical twice weekly service or was it an add on to another flight? With BA starting services to Punta Cana last October, I wonder why they didn’t chose to return to Santo Domingo.

I think there was a short-lived flight to Santo Domingo when the AML agreement was in place. This was when BA had three 777s in a high capacity layout for leisure routes from Gatwick. They were flown with BA flightdeck crew but Flying Colours cabin crew. The World Traveller cabin was also 10-abreast. The flights to Tampa, Kingston, Montego Bay, Nassau, Grand Cayman and San Juan were flown by these aircraft. BA also served Cancun, Havana and San Jose (Costa Rica) at this time through AML.
