US Will Pull Out Of PTY

Sat Mar 05, 2005 11:05 pm

Not surprisingly, US will pull out of PTY on May 8, after starting on February 22, just after 10 weeks of service.

I have not seen this on the news, but there is talk about this around. Despite of extremely low fares the loads are about 80 pax per flight for the A319.

Really bad news...

They apparently are not doing well in this area. Nevertheless, they recently increased frequencies and lowered their fares to/from SJO. Really don't about about their "real situation" in this station.

ADVANCE bookings are NOT good at all for PTY and SAL unfortunately, so these stations will be closed. GUA however, seems to be doing very well.

Didn't they announce they were withdrawing the service before it even started?
If not now, then when?

Quoting TACAA320 (reply 1):

They aren't doing well at PTY and SAL. They are doing well elsewhere, especially FLL-SJO.
