The A320 is a reliable plane and all, but it seems like the flight schedule would be pretty unreliable having 1 (or now 2) aircraft utilized pretty well with no backups
|Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 2):|
The plane is not heavily utilized. It is in the air for less than 7 hours a day, alternating overnights in Miami and Cayenne. With the new plane, there will be an A320 overnighting in Miami daily for 12 hours.

So I would assume that CAY and PAP are also part of the coming open sky between Europe and the USA. Or is there any loophole that excludes these territories?

The goal of AF to base another A320 in The Caribbean , and possibly to base one at La Reunion , is also to push respectively Air Caraibes and Air Austral bankrupt.
|Quoting Humberside (Reply 14):|
Does anyone have a day by day schedule for AF's revised inter Caribbean network?
|Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 17):|
It has not been finalized into GDS systems. For example, MIA is showing 7 departures, but only 6 arrivals. This should be fixed soon, but the frequencies are on the map.

The 4th A330 (300) for Air Caraibes has yet to come , and nothing on the horizon.
Air Caraïbes today signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Airbus for the purchase of two A330-300s. Following the success of Air Caraïbes on its transatlantic routes, the airline has decided
to replace its current A330-200s by the larger capacity A330-300s. These aircraft will be delivered in November 2007 and June 2008.
The new A330-300s will be fitted with 372 seats in a comfortable two-class lay-out providing an additional capacity of 48 seats and featuring the latest standards in In-flight entertainment in all cabins. The engine choice has not yet been defined.
|Quoting Humberside (Reply 19):|
Ii was wondering what routings the flights will take - for example will there still be any MIA-Cayenne through flights?
