Interesting one!!! Today they only have 2 Shorts 360 flying between the ABC islands and to Venezuela / Colombia.

Now that I'm moving to MIA, it will be interesting if they offer a nice price all the way to my home airport of LSP

It will be shorter, faster, more comfortable and hopefully cheaper than flying through CCS on SBA or AA.

Regards,
Mauricio

Going home is quite impossible from MIA. Last time I went to CCS with AA the tkt was around 930$ which is crazy for such a short flight. Insel Air and other caribbean airlines have taken advantage of this known issue on the Venezuela-Miami leg and had offered incredible prices. For example VLN-MIA is way cheaper with a connection in CUR than doing CCS-MIA non stop in any airline. Hopefully connection times allow Tiara Air to connect to LSP and MAR.

Interesting, but a 733 won't make it from AUA to BOS non-stop.

Per their DOT application they have a 737-300 leased from Bank of Utah registered PR-GLN which according to the A.net photo section is a ex United 737-300 that was with GOL last.
