UA does however operate a once weekly ORD-LIR nonstop with a 757.
An A320 actually, flight is UA1060 ORD
did have the 752 from ORD
, and an A320 from IAG
. I believe there was a DEN
with a 757 for like two or three months.

As sidenote, I believe RF flights are usually EQV, and they subcharter aircraft for those flights, as they barely have any equipment of their own. It seems though that those flights are operated by 747s more frequently than usual.
Well they don't schedule EQV, their schedule is B763 on frequencies 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and D1F on 7. Usually they never operate themselves those flights, and let LanCargo do the job, which is always a 763. You will get in SJO
at this time maybe 3-4 flights a week with an FWL callsign, this time of the year its 747's or DC10's only. The 763 comes with LCO when RF doesn't operate flights, they are the same company along with MasAir and ABSA (That explains the wide variety of 763 Freighters in SJO
all the time).
for example, just some weeks ago, all their flights to SJO
came up as 74F! They don't operate 747's anymore, they used to last year for their Brazil/Venezuela/Colombia routes and they were GTI 742's. SJO
gets a mixture of D1F and DC86, same as PTY
, MGA and SAP.
As a sidenote, I've noticed a lot of movement by Murray Cargo in SAP with DC86's from LRD
. Coming in quite regularly these days.
And for Carmen, did you notice the AIN (African International) DC86 in GUA
last weekend? It flew EDDP-KEWR-MGGT-KMIA-EBOS. Also a World MD
-11 has been coming into GUA
, together with an ATA L1011 and an Omni DC10, Bush related?

In other aviation news, Pres. Bush is coming to Guatemala tomorrow. Airspace will be closed from 19:00 to 21:00 Sunday, and again from 19:00 to 21:00 Monday. In addition, all local flights will be suspended on Monday. I don't know if it's related, but I've been hearing more than the usual helicopter traffic overflying my house... perhaps having to do with Bush's planned visit to Chimaltenango?
Would you think spotting at GUA
would be affected? I know that in SJO
when Laura Bush came in the C-32A (752) last May, they did the same thing but no actual problem for spotters, just local police officers with M-16's guarding each emergency exit on the perimeter of the airport.
