I heard a rumor that said Avianca was going to purchase 777-300's for use on their Bogota-NY route, replacing the 767's currently used on this route. Can anybody verify/deny this report? Thanks.

Avianca only uses B767-200s, does it not? Therefore, the B777-300 is a 100% increase of capacity compared to its little brother. I doubt, then, that your report can be verified.

I wish they did, but I really don't think thats true.
Avianca is not in a good financial position to order any new type of aircraft. As a matter of fact they are looking for a new American investor in order to enhance service. Avianca is doing well with those 767-200's and 767-300's for the New York, Madrid, Paris, Frankfurt, & London routes.

The airlines in that part of the region are not doing to well. I just heard that Avensa of Venezuela is looking for an investor because it needs $23 million dollars in order to pay outstanding lease payments on some of it's aircraft. I thought they were doing well with those
DC-10-30's on the Caracas to Rome, Milan, Madrid, Lisbon & Oporto routes, but I think they might be going into trouble?

I have to echo the sentiments of the other who have posted messages here. Avianca in in no financial posiiton to purchase, or lease for that matter, any new aircraft. I understand the temporary lease fort he Transbrasil 762 is to increase capacity on flights to/from Miami, so that they can take there smaller MD-80s off routes to Barranquilla and Cartagena.
