Yes, but I do see this in Skyliner:

Airbus A318 -122 3001 PR-AVH Avianca Brasil ferried 02nov16 NAT-SJU-KBKV (+ 3438 PR-ONG) ex CC-CVA

Avianca Brasil A318 at KBKV

Hi all,

Rumor has it that there is a Avianca Brasil A318 (or 2), at Brooksville, FL KBKV.
PR-AVH? PR-ONG?

Any idea why? New maintenance facility? Ferry flight?

I did a search of threads and came up with nothing.

No spotty coverage for me, but I'm taking a 90 minute flight so not a big deal, and works out...
