Condor FRA-SDQ-SJO: How Is It Doing?

Wed Nov 22, 2006 4:17 pm

At the beginning of the month, DE changed the routing for FRA-SJO and it is now routed through SDQ instead of HAV with a midnight departure out of FRA. I was wondering if anyone can provide me the loads for the month to see how the flight is doing loadwise. And if anyone can tell me how DE's flight into SJO are doing overall, I'd really appreciate it.

I'm curious as to how viable flights from Germany to Costa Rica are, especially since LT pulled out in 1998.

Flight DE-3234 to SDQ with departure this night is fully booked in tourist class and rest only one seat in "C" class.

On November 26, there only one seat available and on December 03, there aren't seats available.

The route from SDQ to SJO seems to has many seats available.

Maybe people not know yet that this flight continues to Costa Rica...

I also noticed that on Nov. 13 it stopped here in Nassau on its way from SJO back to FRA. Is this going to be a regular visitor? On the DE website, I certainly can't book a NAS-FRA flight. (Well actually I can, but DE will only take me FRA-MCO and UP will do the rest.)

This is interesting as I did not know that DE operated this, and interesting to see this routing now via SDQ. A few years ago I noticed that the arrival flights in from AMS to MCO on MP were continuing on to SJO and also the same routing back to AMS.

Currently I believe MP still has contracted out the MCO-SJO flights to either TACA or Miami Air (i've seen both an A320 and an MP B738 in MP colors). The MP 767 now turns back to AMS after arrival in MCO. I'm assuming they've timed it for dual arrivals for connections but have never bothered to look. Anyone have a little more info on that?

Is SJO a big destination for European travelers?

Most curious. Maybe even DE isn't taking advantage of their 5th Freedom Rights on SDQ-SJO. Mark said in another thread that this leg is also separately bookable in the GDS.

Probably a tech stop/diversion of some sort. I doubt DE will add another stop.

It's now being operated for MP by TA, however there are rumours of MP re-starting direct flights into SJO.

To be honest, I'm not really sure about that. The Dominican Republic and Cuba are much bigger tourist markets than Costa Rica.
