AEP-MVD... Profitable?

Mon Oct 15, 2007 7:35 am

Is the typical "puente aereo" profitable for both AR and PU ? there are 14 services between both cities. and will remain the whole week as every week...............Im wondering how AR is doing with their 5 or 6 daily services on their 732 or 735, is profitable because PU have the same services..............1400+ daily seats profitable?

I know PU is having good results since Im fly this flight 4 or 5 times a week, but how about AR ? Tomorrow I have flights 159 and 160 both are over 90 pax at 0800UTC....... PU,AR, PZ,AA, 8R(SOL) are flying the route, and I know Sol is having bad results on their twice daily servicee, pls can anyone confirm?.

I've often wondered the same...

Do any of them do any type of inflight service? I know AA does a service before departure... juice, pretzels, and newspapers.

Wonder what UA is doing with their customers? Did someone like PZ schedule a connection or are the sending them over to AA?

I suppose they are profitable, with the fares they charge...
Pluna has in flight service, at least on the PDP AEP leg, which is just 10 minutes longer. I suppose they offer the same service on the MVD AEP flight.

I thought UA had discontinued EZE-MVD?

About the topic, I too have wondered about the profitability, but I guess that AR must be doing good enough to keep the current number of flights. I'm guessing PU is doing well also, especially since they still use the 757 sometimes (I actually saw it today  Smile )
