Central American Aviation Thread, Lucky 13!

Sat Jul 07, 2007 8:43 am

I just noticed that the previous thread Central American Aviation Thread - 12! (by Carmenlu15 Jun 28 2007 in Civil Aviation) went the way of the dodo bird due to a system glitch, so I'm opening a new one...

All your comments, questions, and discussions are welcome, and your photos of GUA are even more welcome  Wink

Saludos!
Carmen

Just to let you know, DL has quietly added a second flight to GUA. Flight is listed as operating a 757, and I assume it's seasonal.

DL 232 GUA - ATL
Dep. 9:25 am - Arr. 2:57 pm

DL 233 ATL - GUA
Dep. 7:45 pm - Arr. 9:12 pm
nice and spacious airports in need of new airlines and flights... GUA or FRS anyone?... anyone at all?

Thank goodness we're back...I felt a little out of place in the Caribbean forum!

And on tehe DL topic.....DL are bringing back the LAX-BZE 757 in Nov....the trial run for 6 weeks has been a success with loads always above 75%. all O&D of course.....they should have just kept the route going...taking it away for 3 months will kill the momentum.

Runway extention set to open here as soon as they can move the house at the (now) end of it....

Nice to see a 2nd ATL-GUA-ATL. But given those times.. maybe an after midnight GUA departure would have meant better aircraft utilization for DL.

Well one would have to put together the 3 flights that DL has got now (310/311, 227/228, and 232/233) and check the a/c utlization, and if it's permanent, how the flight to JFK will play.

I think everyone ins Central America must b e on vacation....EVERYONE is so silent....

I know AA issued their route schedules fro Sept-Nov....yesterday...and from BZE we keep our double daily MIA (one of which usually goes away for this period) which is obviously a defensive move against NK coming in. Yields to MIA are above excellent but Sept-Nov..the loads are less than stellar....and they can't really offer a sale on the flights as the prices are fixed byour fine Governement. IMHO..AA is prepared to take a loss for 3 months in order to keep NK from even entertaining any thoughts...
But in a strange move the daily DFW becomes 3X (intead of the usual 5X)....becoming SatSunMon only till Nov 15th when it becomes daily again.

I think BZE should invite AA to fly a Sat and/or Sun STL-BZE-STL by years end. It's time AA make better use of the STL hub they inherited from TWA and at least start flying weekends to selected leisure markets.. CGM, MBJ, AUA, SJO, LIR, BZE maybe even GUA all come to mind.
AA still flies DFW-GUA, DFW-SAL?

BZE probably has but AA rather send them via DFW now...

Based on my "looks" as to whome comes off these flights....CO has a bigger share of the leisure market than AA....but AA has the business market sown up...and that is where the money is....

We jsut had a business pax in here who flew AA..IAH-DFW-BZE..when he could have flown with CO.....go figure....

Bad news to report today, CMs stock has taken a dive, it was downgraded, analyst think the frequency realignment is going to increase cost. On time for the quarter is down; still above average but down compared to previous quarters. Also a P5 Ejet overran the runway in Santa Marta and went into Sea Water, this will probably result in a write off of a brand new jet.

Anyway the stock dive was reported on Monday's or Friday's Prensa; too busy to find a link but that is were I read about it, stocks are down today, they have lost almost 11 dollars since thursday.

Today Prensa has 3 articles on the TAM tragedy, but nothing on P5s accident.

“Empresa Aerorepública es irresponsable”, Jaime Martínez


El reconocido periodista del Diario El País de Cali, Jaime Martínez Duarte, quien venía acompañado de su esposa y su pequeña hija como pasajeros en el avión HK 4455 de Aerorepública, denunció negligencia por parte de la empresa de aviación al momento del accidente.

Según el comunicador, el personal de la empresa que llegó minutos más tarde al sitio del accidente se preocupó más por los elementos de emergencia para que no fueran robados, antes de percatarse de los resultados del hecho que afortunadamente no dejó víctimas mortales.

De igual, manera resaltó Martínez Duarte que a la empresa le faltó el respeto a los pasajeros quienes lo único que querían era salir del aeronave y para eso tenían que contra con el apoyo del personas, por lo que no se explica como una reconocida empresa en vez de velar por la seguridad de sus usuarios estuvieran más pendientes de un equipo de socorro, que en este caso la mayoría se estaba usando.

“Fueron momentos muy angustiantes, al momento que el Capitán intentó aterrizar, volvió y despegó, dio una vuelta volvió a aterrizó, cuando vimos que el avión cogió mucho impulso, por lo que se salió de la pista, fue una situación muy dura, cuando cayó al mar”, dijo el periodista.

Así mismo, continuó manifestando que “en ningún momento el Capitán informó de nada sobre la emergencia, no dijeron nada, fue un pánico y un caos total en ese momento cuando cayó y para evacuar a las personas que allí estábamos”.

En medio del nerviosismo recalcó que “aprovecho este medio de comunicación para denunciar públicamente a la aerolínea Aerorepública por duramos mas de hora y media allí y nadie nos da informe de nada.

Lo lamentable de todo fue que primero se preocuparon por recoger los chalecos salvavidas, sin preguntar nada, ni una lista de los heridos, en ese momento no sabíamos para donde coger, no sabíamos nada de los equipajes, sólo hasta cuando los pasajeros se alborotaron, fue cuando decidieron que los iban a llevar a un importante hotel de la ciudad”.

“Nosotros venimos de paseo una semana a Santa Marta, la verdad es que todavía tenemos en la mente las escenas de pánico que vivimos 57”, concluyó Jaime Martínez Duarte."

This is a real serious accusation.

Seems like someone blowing things way out of proportion, he is not a pilot or cabin crew to know what was going on, and how is the captain going to keep them informed? Ladies and Gentlemen Please fasten your seat-belts the airplane will be landing but we will run off the runway. After they evacuated the airplane I am sure the cabin crew have a lot of things to do, Talking to passengers is not one of those concerns.

Obviously this person has a right to be mad and confused and scared, he has just been in a plane crash, but it has not been 24 hours yet and you are accusing the airline of irresponsible? they evacuated everybody, took them to get medical care, put them up in hotels,the Airline's CEO has had 3 press conferences and is in Santa Marta right now, they have 2 dedicated phone lines for relatives of passengers, What else does he want?.

Sure the first hours at the scene of a plane crash is going to be total chaos. But what is "being irresponsible" the airline has done everything they can to deal with this. This is just another badly informed cheap "journalist" trying to create a scandal.

This article is so badly written I dont even get what the passenger is complaining about, something about some medical equipment? what the #ell is he talking about? first aid kits? Seems like the kind of person that wanted the captain to come and personally explain why his plane had crashed 5 minutes after it had happened. If you read he is worried about his fricking LUGGAGE!

What a moron and what a stupid article.

A possible cause of P5 accident. Unbelievable...

Sorry, but once again only in Spanish:

"

En medio de la impotencia y colmado de ira, Alejandro Palacio, un señor quien presenció el accidente aeronáutico, dijo a los medios de comunicación que el hecho se registró por que la torre de control le dio preferencia al despegue del avión de la Policía antes que el aterrizaje del de pasajeros.

Don Alejandro aseguró que el HK 4455 de Aerorepública tuvo que sobre volar varias veces y cuando lo hizo, entró muy rápido al aterrizaje, según él, fue el motivo de la emergencia que hoy mantiene cerradas las operaciones del Aeropuerto Simón Bolívar de Santa Marta.
De igual manera relató Palacio que él se encontraba esperando a varios familiares que llegaban procedentes de Cali, pero el pánico se apoderó de él y de otras personas que lo acompañaban por la manera como la aeronave volaba sobre el aeropuerto.

“El avión tuvo que sobrevolara con intento de aterrizaje dos veces, por que le dieron preferencia a un avión DC 3 de la Policía Nacional y cuando el avión entró a la pista de aterrizaje entró muy rápido, con pista mojada, yo llegué entre los primero, pero todos nos dimos cuenta que la causa principal fue esa”, argumentó Alejandro Palacio.

How you dare to accuse me of "wasting" posts?
Now is a good time to remember you two key words: freedom and respect. In a few words, respect for other's opinion.

I still remember back in the times when they flew GUA-DFW daily

Me too. Now that i think about it the flight might actually now be DFW-SAL not GUA. I wonder how it is doing. I was under the impression that that flight made sense because of the AA/TA relationship and now that that has ended i wonder how it is doing.

Hello, everyone!
I recently joined at Airliners.net. I´ve read carefully all Central American threads.
Following might be painful: JJ that crashed July 17 in CGH belonged to TA from March 1998 to late 2003. According to airfleets.net, this A320-233 was registered as N454TA. How many times did you see it in SJO, SAL, GUA...?

Odd, the first thing I thought when I saw the news on the paper was "oh, a 320... just like the ones TA has"  Sad

Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.
