BR Will Fly 772LR Nonstop TPE-PTY

Sun Mar 23, 2003 7:20 am

It appears that the task of flying TPE-EWR has been given to the 773ER while EVA has now decided to fly their 772LRs nonstop TPE-PTY, which at 9719mi, will be the world's longest nonstop flight!

***

I do wonder however if this flight would exceed the 18hr cap placed on nonstops from most countries? How does Taipei handle such details?

Is Taipei - Tocumen that high yielding of a route that they need to dedicate at least 3 frames for a daily non-stop frequency? That amazes me.

The 773ER will be a good plane for the TPE-EWR route. What do they currently operate on this service?

Of course, the PTY route is technically within the range of the A340-500 as well.  Laugh out loud

BR operates mostly the 744 Combi version. Sometimes also the usual 747-400.

It shouldnt be that much of a surprise for Evergreen Aviation Airways to offer a flight to PTY, where the Evergreen Group is the largest foreign investor  Big grin

BR's current routing to New York is TPE-SEA-EWR, and contrary to popular belief, they obviously cannot codeshare with CO between SEA and EWR alone.

I'm surprised that EVA will re-start its its Panama City route. They ended the route a couple of years because of low damand.

where did you get that info. Here in panama I have not heard that anywhere. they had a 747-400 service a couple of years ago and cancelled it. Why would they whant to restart it. and directly????!!!!! half its traffic was in the PTY-LAX route. Are you sure its pty and not another airport starting with p?
i would probably know of it becouse their are not a lot of aviation entusiast here in panama.

A few years ago the Panama govt were talking to CF Chang (chairman of Evergreen Group) about starting a new airline in Panama City... Also note that Panama is actually one of the few countries that has official diplomatic ties with Taiwan.

That does seem like an oddball route. Is there really that much O&D between the two cities? China (PRC and not ROC) has substantial investments in Panama despite the diplomatic situation. In fact, there is some concern in this country that so many mainland Chinese companies (some with ties to the Chinese military) have bought up a substantial amount of facilities along the canal.
