Thanks guys. I had a feeling that it was 95 or 96.
Too bad that IB
really did a number on Viasa. I had the pleasure of flying from IAH
in the early 90s and found the flight enjoyable. I am not certain how IAH
was performing as a US gateway for Viasa but in memeroy seves the flight (DC-10) was fairly full, but then again as we all know a full flight does not alway equate a profitable flight. IIRC, I paid just under $250 for a R/T ticket.
Hopefully the US and Venezuela can come to some agrement on the CAT situation that threatens to cut direct service form both countries. I would hope to see a Venezuelan carrier return to Houston one day should a new agreement be signed and cooler heads prevail.
