They indeed operated the route MAD
in the 747-200s a few years ago, but they dropped it. I believe that if NRT
didn't work, it would be tough for them to make any other asian destination profitable.
As Trvlr says, their Latin American network is simply impressive. Direct flights to BOG
, UIO, LIM
etc., all on A340. From their mini-hub at MIA
they serve several Central American destinations such as CUN
, PTY and SJO
with a fleet of 4 A319. These flights feed also the 2x daily flights to MIA
, one on A346 and the other on A343 or 743/2.
They have a large domestic network aswell. Their well-developed shuttle between MAD
makes this route one of the most active in the whole world, with more than 40 daily flights.
Their markets in the US are the strictly necessary ones, such as MIA
. Although LAX
should be there too. For once I thought YYZ
made sense, but after AC
's announcement that they would drop the service to MAD
, I changed my mind.
If an eventual change comes, I think it would be more frequency on the existing Latin American markets or an aircraft upgrade.
