Fly 'em to MIA, put them on an AA codeshare, put your T7's on another route.
|Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 4):|
They said no profits. Really weird considering loads in both Y and J were good. Maybe the stopover made it unprofitable. And now people are using AC, IB and AF. AA, DL and CO get almost no traffic from BOG to LON. A real loss for oneworld
|Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 7):|
Yes, India and China are monney makers. But BOG and CCS werent money loosers either
|Quoting Luisde8cd (Reply 9):|
If BA decided to have the flight departing from LHR instead of LGW in the last couple of years is because of something good about the route...
|Quoting Speedbird2155 (Reply 10):|
No it was simply a move based on the fact that the longhaul 767s are LHR and that was the aircraft used on those routes for a period.
|Quoting Orion737 (Reply 12):|
If the CCS and BOG slot at LHR was wanted for other routes, then they should have moved it back to LGW where both destinations were served from for years by BCal and then BA.
The real reason they abandoned the routes may have something to do with their partner IB and their greed for total domination in Spanish South America,
|Quoting Orion737 (Reply 14):|
would like to see AV return with their 767s to London. They would surely clean up!
|Quoting Cornish (Reply 15):|
Yeah would be good to see AV back. I remember when they came back (for a brief while) in around 1999/00 (I think) and we used to see their distinctive orange colours fly past the office window into LHR.
|Quoting Luisde8cd (Reply 16):|
think you are confusing Viasa with Avianca. Avianca has a red livery and it is from Colombia (flew 767s). Viasa (RIP) was from Venezuela and had orange tails. Used to fly DC-10s to LHR.

|Quoting MIASkies (Reply 25):|
I actually think it might be profitable for AV to fly with LON via SJU with 763. VS serves SJU right now w/ cruise charters so that would A) Give AV the chance to re-enter the SJU market which offers cruise connections, caribbean connections etc. B) Give AV a better chance of having better loads on the flight since it will carry SJU passengers as well and not only BOG and C) Offer passengers in the U.K. scheduled service to both SJU and BOG.
Just an idea...what do you guys think?
|Quoting MIASkies (Reply 20):|
For example, their is a large population of Italians/Venezuelans that travel in between the 2 countries and thus AZ can offer flights to MXP & FCO from CCS.
