LAB Emergency Landing In Acapulco

Sun Aug 28, 2005 6:27 am

A plane from Lloyd Aereo Boliviano (LAB) had a problem on one of its engines while on route to Mexico City from La Paz (Bolivia) and decided to land on the nearest airport: Acapulco.

Apparently there were no injured passengers and they haven't found the couse of the problem yet.

Wow, I flown them one month ago and it was a great flight. Believe me, it's kind of odd to fly so many hours in a 727.

Glad no one is hurt.

Don't have the type of A/C but the flight was the 911, maybe you can help us find out.
I believe it was a 727-200 but haven't been able to find that flight number yet.

Don't know for sure but chances are it was a 727 since most of the times the LB flight to MEX is operated with 727's via PTY. Non-stop flights with the 767ER only happen once or twice a week if I am not mistaken.

If someone has more details about the incident, the kind of damage and how the passengers were sent to Mexico City, let us know.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

Yep, as Corulez05 said, it's spooky. However, don't forget that this flight is between Mexico and Bolivia, where 911 lacks the meaning that it has in American soil. I'm sure most people over there don't know/care about the 911 as a number for emergencies.

Yes, but have in mind that this flight was from La Paz to MEX via Guayaquil.

I beg to differ but just because the attacks happened on U.S. soil, doesn't mean it didn't impact the world around. More than just attacks against the U.S., I think it had a general and terrible impact on the aviation industry as a whole. For that reason, I was rather surprised and freaked out when I saw that flight number.....

No, I was watching the TV news about Katrina and I saw the 767 with some damage (nothing important, I think).

Right, it is via GYE. Thanks for that RICARIZA. By the way, does LB have (or has it applied for) traffic rights between GYE and MEX?

Remember, 9/11 only makes sense in English (September eleventh). In Spanish, as I think you know, it's "once de septiembre" and thus 11/9.

BTW, to be honest, I had in mind 911 as the emergency phone number. Until I read your post, I realized the connection with 9/11. Anyway, a spooky flight number indeed.

Cheers.

That has been in LB and the route for centuries... nothing to worry-relate about!

LB changed their stopover for flight to VVI (on the B722) from PTY to GYE due to fifth freedom rights taken away by the Mexican government on the MEX-PTY-MEX sector. Now they fly MEX-GYE-VVI and have full freedom on the MEX-GYE-MEX and VVI-GYE-VVI thanks to the purchase of Ecuatoriana and all of its route authorities.

I wonder what does MX has to say about this? They started the route thinking they were the only airline in the market with no likely new comers to compete with... Now LB is there as well. MMMhhhhh.

I would say MX should have seen a decline in bookings to GYE; but remember that MX also serves UIO with the same flight MEX-UIO-GYE-MEX.

It would be interesting to see how MX bookings performed after LB started flying to GYE!

No big movements, actually about 3-5 passengers, and this week the flight MX1681 has been for about 70% load factor.

Then I guess this means there is sufficient demand for the two carriers to comfortably coexist. MX likely has the upper hand with more modern aicraft, more mileage accrual possibilities thanks to its alliances with many Latin American and worldwide airlines, and a reputation for great service. On the other hand, LB probably offers great fares between MEX and GYE and does not have so much pressure to have many bookings because its main market is the LPB/VVI-MEX passengers (whether O&D or connecting).

Up until some months ago, there was no regularly scheduled service between Ecuador and Mexico, so most passengers were likely flying with AV via BOG or with CM via PTY. It is those carriers probably who have lost their connecting passengers to the likes of MX and LB.
