Actually don't mind if it is non-stop or not. But I need it direct (no plane changes). My wife is from Feira de Santana, 60 mls W of SSA and this year we are travelling with our 12-month old (by Christmas) little daughter.
For quite a long, VASP was serving São Paulo-(three times a week with Stopovers at Salvador de BAhia and three or four at Madrid)-Barcelona, with some M11s they leased. The duration of the BCN-SSA section was 8h20, without stopover at MAD, or 10 hrs with stopover. The flight was for US$500-to-800. Two years ago, more or less, VASP had to get rid of the M11s due to financial trouble.
Now, the only options are TP or AF: TP BCN-LIS-(maybe REC or FOR)-SSa, or only twice a week LIS-SSA. However, this is expensive. Reserving NOW (end of july) for December, we're getting prices around USD1100 or waiting lists... The cheapest option right now is AF BCN-CDG-GRU-SSA (two hours to the north+11h30 to the south+another 2h30 to the north, total trip time about 20 hrs) for the nice amount of 1050USD.
Can you understand how much I miss VASP and their VP784-VP785 flights?
San Juan- Mexico City. Eventhough Mexicna tried it and it didn't work. I think they should have given it more time and help it expand. Turism from Puerto Rico to Mexico is big plus there are Mexicans here that would like to go back to Mexico and visit without having to stop at PTY or MIA.

I badly need a Mannheim-Dortmund flight - wishfull thinking, though - I´d probably be the only customer .
I live in Dortmund and study and work at Mannheim University. The only alternatives are the train which takes 4 hours or FRA-DTM, door to door 3.5 hours at best - at the double price .

Either of these routes: London to MKE or AMS to MKE... on Virgin or KLM... code sharing with MidEx for feeder service from MCI, Des Moines, and other midwest locations... not too far fetched in my opinion!
