It is almost entirely VFR with some business traffic. The demographics of the market are traditionally low-yield, but not in the case of the Santo Domingo market, which is high-yielding because the US carriers that fly there (US from PHL
) place supply well under demand (while Dominican carriers are unreliable, though LanDominicana should change that).
American Airlines sends the 777 to SDQ
on Saturdays. This is because AA
only operates on BOS
flight on Saturdays, and instead of having the 2nd 777 that landed in BOS
that morning sit around until Sunday evening, it goes to Santo Domingo. They fly multiple daily A300s to SDQ
as well from MIA
, and JFK
. I don't about CO
, but AA
's A300s are the largest plane in their fleet passenger-capacity wise.
