What is PRs method for dispatching 744s or A343s to LAX on PR102/103? They have scheduled Sunday A343 flights and some Wednesdays are A343s, but have flown 744s since SEP 15. There does not seem to be any pattern to whether they'll dispatch a 744 or A343 on any day of the week. Same question goes for the seemingly randomness of SFO flights, PR 104/105.

Also, PR has discontinued the GUM stop this season... is this due to the light loads right now or did they change something? I didn't think the A343 had the legs for this route nonstop. There was a thread on this this year but no answer came up.

Finally, why does PR land on 24L at LAX every night instead of the usual 24R?

PR 112/113, flown by the A343s are seasonal. They are off during the fall season and will start flying again after Thanksgiving. These flights are seasonal and off during the spring and fall seasons. When they are flying, PR113 leaves LAX at 11AM. The B744 are daily year-round and leaves at night.
The GUM tech stop will start again end of October but PR will try to avoid the stop depending on the load.
I'm also wondering why PR is using 24L now. Last night, while waiting for my wife, who was on PR, a BA B744 landed on 24R and PR was 5 minutes behind but landed on 24L.

For Sep-Nov 2013, PR 102/103 on Sundays & PR 104/105 on Tuesdays & Thursdays are scheduled to utilize the A343. However, they are subject to upgauge to a B744 depending on loads. I wonder how they deal with crewing for this Fall capacity reduction. Do the flight deck crew that fly the once or twice a week A343 deadhead the previous or next day on the B744? The FA's shouldn't be an issue because PAL operates mixed fleet on them. And whereas GUM or HNL used to be a scheduled stop, they've been eliminated from the winter schedule. I guess the tech stop will depend on load/weather/winds. Glad to see the flights scheduled as non-stop though...

The last times it landed on 24R in the past few weeks have been on SEP 18 and SEP 23. 24L otherwise. Very odd.
