|Quoting Avianca (Thread starter):|
can not understand the move as Avianca is moving a lot of cargo on the 767 flights specially inbound CCS.... or is it a sight that they finally will restart all-cargo aircraft operations.... ?
I would think maintenance is the issue. Now that we are approaching a slow season (Ferbruary, most of March and April) they might be in line for a new interior fit, or the installation of the new IFE.
So if it arrives from JFK
and doesn´t go to CCS
and stays in BOG
for 10 hours, some of this could be done.

Who needs a 767 on a 90 minute flight. What AV really needs to do is up gauge the BAQ to Miami flight. An MD-83 with no AA on the route and no more Aero Condor is really sticking it to the passengers. BAQ needs a bigger airplane, a 757 would do nicely.
needs a 767 on a 90 minute flight, as it is full of cargo and the loads are good. We all know BAQ needs a bigger plane but there are better places where the resources can be used. Plus, at the second AA
or P5 enter the market (im just naming copetitors who could fly the route, as there are not even romours aobut it), AV
would have to downgrade to MD
Indeed, that could be another possiblity. PTY
also sees strong loads, though these are extremely seasonal. In solwer months the two daily MDs are fine.
If it´s b/c of the myaviation.net pic, that was just a sub. VLN
is still F100, the only upgrade is has gotten is a 5th weekly frequency. I checked avianca.com for January, March and May, and none show MD
