I have received the next sad info at the beginning of this week and was thinking a lot of it lately, so I wanted to share it also with you guys and hear if anybody else has more info on it and/or has heard the same stuff?
There is a big rumor that West Caribbean Airways will disappear, the rumor is that the company has some kind of relationship with drug dealers what was discovered recently.
Well personally I really hope that this whole thing is only a rumor. Like we all know, it wont be good for Colombian aviation and will give Colombia again a bad name.
I've flown WEST on the BOG
route last June with a MadDog 81.... and the service on board was very nice. Pilots were great and showed us the cockpit etc. Only good words for this nice and beautiful COLOMBIAN company!!!!
About Tampa Cargo.
Also heard a little rumor that the DC-8's will be remained in the fleet but it is supposed that they will based at QUITO after the 3 B767-200's will arrive and the 4 more B767300F's brand (new ones) will arrive in the next year(s),
The DC-8's will remain in the fleet because the leasing is very cheap and because there are no operators that wants old DC-8s, so they will flight for Tampa till their time is over I guess.
Maybe Southamerica and 757MDE ore anybody else has more info on this one.
Goodnight and welstrusten!!
Colombia... can't wait to be there again!!!!!!!!!!
