I am dissapointed, because LAB's A310 service is the last A310 service at MIA. None the less, LAB needs the extra capacity. Between the US and Bolivia there are only two daily flights, and they go out full daily.

There is not only a techincal stop at PTY.
Panamanian people aboard the plane, and buy tickets for theirs flights to Mexico, Miami and Cancun.
Although, at least in the case of MIA, getting the very lucrative 5th freedom rights on MIA-PTY was very recent, which is why they are now flying to MIA via PTY 3x a week, with the rest of the services non-stop on A310s.
