No, I'm not saying Mexico is a bad place, but Belize appears to be a very attractive substitute. Anybody with better local knowledge is more than welcome to shoot me down. p.s. Huge thx to the OP for spelling out BZE for us all; we could do with much more of that. IMO Belize City has a 150 room Rad...Jump to post
But QR has the benefit of AA feed just like at PHL and they still can't make a go of it. What meaningful feed is there beyond MIA that wouldn't be better connected over PHL? Just look at this, even TPA is better over PHL than MIA. http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=TPA-DOH,+TPA-MIA-DOH,+TPA-PHL-DOH All o...Jump to post

not to go off topic but I have always thought CM could use a bunch of E175 in potential smaller volume markets from PTY....places like RTB/FRS/BON/MID and to smaller Caribbean destinations like UVF, GCM and PTP.Jump to post
MID ATL didn’t last long at all.Jump to post
People always complain, no matter what. They have no idea what it costs to run an airport or an airline. CM is an integral part of the PTY economy. If CM ever left, those same people would be complaining about the lack of service options at PTY and yes, they would still be complaining about the (pro...Jump to post
A while ago there was much debate on whether it is a good idea to operate regional jets in the Caribbean. Now InterCaribbean and WesternAir have both acquired the ERJ145 to use on their route networks. What everyones opinion on those acquisitions. CM has operated Regional jets in the Caribbean for ...Jump to post
Some Caribbean aviation news: Also, prior to the PTY-BGI inaugural flight, CM has changed their scheduled a/c into BGI from the e190 to the Boeing 737-7/8 until August 28th. This could be a result from the huge advertisement efforts happening over in Panama, as some colleagues reported. https://www...Jump to post
Propose GUA flight schedule Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays IAH 11:15 - GUA 12:58 GUA 14:05 - IAH 18:03 Good to see some competition in that route, now we just need someone to fly GUA-ATL. Looks like B6 or AS's expansion in Central America is now more difficult. It is becoming a very crowded maketp...Jump to post
Too many times we see people say things on an antidotal basis but it just doesn't hold up. And I will add this...too many times people hold up PDEWs as gospel on whether a route will work or not. I have seen the PDEWS proven wrong time after time after time (on both fronts). not because it is not s...Jump to post

more on the 9N & CM announcement.

I think this is a first for 9N, COPA making sure they get every last passenger. Sounds like a win win all around for both.

With SAP a success would AM try TGU?

Will WN pull out of GSP within the next year? WN carried fewer passengers out of GSP between March 2017 and February 2018 than at every other WN station except for FNT, which WN pulled out earlier this week. How could WN sustain service at GSP, CRP, RIC, and DSM but not at JAN if all four of these ...Jump to post
Interesting the flights to Puebla and Villahermosa failed but Monterrey is doing well PBC, VSA and BZE were all started together and only BZE remains from that. VSA failed because oil crashed about the time it started and it is an Oil based market. very little tourism there. I understand BGI bookin...Jump to post
I don't see the third ULH flight being IAH....that flight has struggled for years getting enough LF from SIN and relied heavily on Cargo.

To anyone familiar with this, why so many flights and seats for a trip that's 30 minutes by car and couldn't take more than 10 minutes in the air??

I would like to see WN add 2x FLL at a minimum After reading this thread for a while, I would be MOST surprised if most of these slots DIDN'T end up at FLL, with the international gateway they want to build there.

The surprise is all of this has to be IAH which is doing fairly well. I would assume that is a testament to the Cubans that have moved to Houston that a previous poster mentioned.Jump to post

The 5U GUA-BZE 5x weekly sector is served on the ERJ-145.
