Great TR! These reports with the classic rare birds I find the most interesting. Thanks DeltaMD95. I got goosebumps when you shared that YV2923 used to be N458AA, as I have that tail # in my logbook from 2009, BOS-ORD. Glad to have been able to bring back some fond memories. Interesting report, goo...Jump to post
Fantastic TR, always a pleasure to read from such "rare" airlines and aircrafts Thanks debonair, always a pleasure to be able to contribute - though not nearly as often as I'd like to. Venezuela seems a real "spotter" heaven. If only the local authorities would embrace that conc...Jump to post
Introduction It’s been quite some time. My last trip report was about flights taken almost three years ago and my last actual flights were two years ago (no report). Tickets for a trip to Germany and for a side trip from there to Spain had been secured in early 2020 for April – and then came the pa...Jump to post
The L-1011-500 was used for some time on the JFK-CCS route. In fact, N504PA (Clipper National Eagle) flew the inaugural service of the type for the airline on May 1, 1980 on that route.
The DC-10-30 flew the MIA-CCS route for a while during the mid '80s.
Cool report to wrap up a year that didn't offer too many opportunities to travel and post reports on it!Jump to post
KL 742 AMS-LIS-PMB-CUR-CCS
PA 741 JFK-MIA-CCS
LH 742 FRA-SJU-CCS
Never on a 743 or 744. And chances are dwindling fast.
Most recent trip: way back in July 2019 CCS-BOG-MIA-BOG-CCS
Cancelled (well, postponed) trip originally booked for mid April: CCS-IST-HAM-IST-CCS and FRA-MAD-FRA
Apples don't grow where I live. They are imported as exotic fruits and sold as green apples, red apples or Gala apples. The green ones are usually too tart, the red ones are mealy and tasteless so I stick with the Galas whenever the craving for apples is strong enough and the wallet full enough. But...Jump to post
That was quick! Thanks to you both, hOMsaR and tjwgrr. I know of the 7 day data storage at flightradar.com. Unfortunately it was only today, on the 8th day, that I had Internet access again. I also tried the statistic data bases mentioned on this site every now and then when such questions arise, bu...Jump to post
Very interesting report. I'd say it's been almost a decade since someone not living in or having ties to the country posts a TR involving CCS. Hearing about Plus Ultra was a bonus. I wonder if the loads on their flights out of the country are as light as the inbound was. The terminal was eerie, it w...Jump to post
Thanks for the trip report. My pleasure, SCQ83! Which was the split between HAV and CCS? I understand PAX originating in HAV never disembark in CCS, don't they? I'd guess that on this particular flight the split was 35% HAV and 65% CCS. In the J cabin only 2 out of 11 pax disembarked in HAV. From p...Jump to post

Great to have you visiting the forum again. Your TR's are certainly missed! Glad to have brought back some memories of your trip to IST.
Debonair: Thanks for stopping by. IIRC you also took TK 183 not so long ago. I think I read something along those lines in the Travels & Polls forum. When I flew there was no noticeable amount of German pax on board, but maybe the days for touri flights are not midweek. great report as usual! us...Jump to post

Great report so far. Loved your photos...I'm looking forward to part II. Thanks! Part II will be out in a minute. Unfortunately I only spent 1 day in Istanbul on a cruise. What left a lasting impression was Topkapi Palace. However with all the attacks there I am uncomfortable going. Backtracking is...Jump to post

great report and nice pictures of your Andes crossing, beautiful Buenos Aires and those artery-clogging but oh-so-yummy dishes!
I flew on a sister ship of your 787-9 just a couple of months ago, albeit on another continent.
Yeap, it's true: Thanks for the link, debonair. Now what we still don't know is whether TP will actually revert to using their own metal in the foreseeable future or not. The article doesn't give a hint about that. I am shocked to see the B767-300 of EuroAtlantic in such great and modern (B777 styl...Jump to post
Not all my time in Hamburg was dedicated to family commitments though.

The elevating coat closets were usually found at the 3 L/R crossaisle. There was a pull- up door, and just beneath the lower edge of the upper closet frame, there were buttons that controlled the up/down of the mechanism that raised/lowered the garments and garment bags. There was a mechanical rele...Jump to post
xtra1, I vaguely remember the DC10 centre bulkhead coat closets, here visible in 2 of the pictures. I think you hung your coat on a hanger and drags it up into a ceiling storage area? Now that you mention it and I see it in the picture I seem to remember this as well. I'm just not sure if the coats/...Jump to post

For the return flight we were told to be at the town square by 10:45 am.

Now the cliché: Southern Pacific Ocean. Island. Welcoming performance. Leis. Hula hoop. Naaah, not so on Robinson Crusoe. Here we’ve got a whole different animal .

I've been a fan of your reports for quite a while. Thank you especially for this one full of amazing photos and insights to a country not much reported on here. The variety of still operational classics is certainly one of avgeeks heavens.
