Re: Departures in the middle of the night

We have a bunch of those here in LatAm, CM has a bunch of departures from places like LIM, SCL, GRU, GIG and others between 12 - 4 am, those flights land in PTY around 6 - 8 am and many passengers connect on to the first US bound bank of flights from 8 - 11 am.

Re: Central American Aviation Thread - 2017 (2nd Half)

The problem with BLB is that you have to cross a bridge to get there, so if your flight is anywhere close to rush hour it can take up to two hours to get to the airport. Its also not that cheap either, wingo was selling tickets for 125-150$ while CM was selling at around 200$ RT from PTY, for which ...

Isn't it really up to the 787-10 to decide if it's a boy or a girl? Unless it is operating in North Carolina, in which case it is determined by the airworthiness certificate. Can an uncertified plane be ready to make such a decision. Surely there is an age of consent. Are you implying that a 787-9 ...
