Re: Avianca increases Bogota – Buenos Aires service from March 2019

The bilateral agreements are not only based on the mathematics but have to take into account the scope of them. And the geographical location is a component to take into account for the companies of your country. In this case a quite good agreement was reached, contemplating the Argentine companies.

Re: Avianca increases Bogota – Buenos Aires service from March 2019

This is very simple. When negotiating a bilateral agreement, the advantages and disadvantages of the two parties are taken into consideration. Geography is an advantage or disadvantage. From there it seeks to compensate or not those advantages and disadvantages. The 5th freedom is a way to compensat...

Re: Boeing 737-10, updates, orders, developments.

It will be interesting to see how much field performance improves with the new gear, and specifically whether it's enough that a MAX 9 with the MAX 10 gear could get significantly closer to the field performance of the MAX 8. A MAX 9 that could get into shorter fields would probably be a more inter...

Re: Primera Air adds MAD-BOS/EWR/YYZ

Personally haven't seen specific numbers on the range increase by way of aux tanks but if the 3,550nm base range is to be believed (which is identical to the MAX 8s), they'll need to add at least 700-800nm or so (or even more for reserves and winds), given their longest route planned (TXL-YYZ) meas...
