Can it be something related to the recent political change?Jump to post
Confirmed in their website, www.jetsmart.com
SCL-CLO-SCL, begins December 20th 2019, 2 flights per week in A320
SCL-BOG-SCL, begins January 9th 2020, 3 flights per week in A320
According to Aviacol (www.aviacol.net) Twitter account, apparently JetSmart will be launching operations to Colombia?
My thoughts are BOG-SCL in the new A320neo they just received a couple of days ago. Good move from them!
Apparently Azul, which was already in talks with Avianca to build up a codeshare, now is joining the future Avianca - Copa - United partnership. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-azul-alliance/brazil-airline-azul-eyes-partnership-with-united-avianca-copa-idUSKBN1WT1WW Let's see what this new partne...Jump to post
My questions are: How is the A350 performance taking off from high altitude airports in long haul flights? Is Iberia still making performance analysis for the BOG-MAD route in specific? I think Lufthansa had already tested their A350 in the MEX-MUC route and they went back to the A340-600, is becaus...Jump to post
I think there is a new date, the article mentions January 1st 2020.
According to Airline Route, the A350 will be flying January 1st 2020 to BOG: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... e-changes/
Ok there's also a BOG-ASU thread I started it but let's discuss everything here (what if we asked the mods to close the other and change the title of this one to AV starts BOG-ASU and restarts BOG-MVD). It seems they're commiting an A32S to fly 4x/w to MVD and 3x/w to ASU. Both stations will become...Jump to post
I wonder how this may affect 4C (LATAM Colombia)... Not sure how much 4C depends on AA's flight into Colombia, but I would have to imagine there is some feed at BOG at least. AA has quite a bigger presence in Colombia than DL does... Several Colombian destinations which are not served by AA and wer...Jump to post
It seems that AD is best suited for UA/AV/Star, given its partnerships. But there is no other Latin American full-service airline that has the calibre of AV/CM, AM/AR, LA and AD. Whatever American does will benefit only American. In the greater interests of the Oneworld alliance, especially Iberia,...Jump to post

Seems a quick reaction.... AA cut from its system already code-share flights in Brazil with LA... tried right now to price FOR-MIA and ... no results... VIX-MIA... shows only G3 connecting flights. Wow that was fast! Just tried booking a flight from MIA to POA and it routes me: MIA-CUN-PTY-POA with...Jump to post

In Brazil now Gol becomes the free agent so AA would do well to partner with them. For the rest of Latin America here how it would look if LATAM shifts. American - Interjet(?) Delta - AeroMexici, Argentinas, LATAM United - Aeromar, Avianca, Azul, Copa Avianca has nothing yet signed with United. Uni...Jump to post
Finally, not confirmed, Avianca will be painting one of their planes to commemorate 100 years. With a post on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, they are asking which one would fit best.
I go with the 767-200, the classic red one!
Hello all, I search but didn't find anything related in the forum. I am wondering if any of you guys know where are the A318's from Avianca heading after the airline sold them. It came to my attention that the first one, out of the 10 they had, went out of the fleet. Here the pic: https://imgproc.ai...Jump to post

UA's EWR-BOG route used to be a 757, and it used to continue to UIO. This route has been in the network since the 1990's. (CO route). AA has flown from JFK, and DL used to from JFK which has already been pointed out. No one has said that EWR-BOG on UA is also 2x daily now. UA EWR-BOG is 2x daily no...Jump to post
Let's see how Delta does again in the BOG-JFK. When they operated that route like 4 years ago, it was only saturdays and in a 737-700. For sure the new service looks much better, with 757-200 and daily, they can now compete. NYC to Bogota is having double daily BOG-EWR in a 737-700 from United, and ...Jump to post
The simple answer is big NO any Qatari registered airplane is not allowed to any of the 4 countries (UAE, KSA, Bahrain, and Egypt) under any circumstances. QR route planners knew that since day 1 and the took all alternatives plans for such issue, they don't fly near the 4 countries airspace's and ...Jump to post
Venezuela is another one to add to the list, is not well defined, because some airlines are still over-flying Venezuela. But: - Avianca decided not to fly and not to overfly Venezuela, because of safety issues in the country. (we all know what is happening in Venezuela) - FAA stated that airlines fr...Jump to post
How about retiming the BAQ to MIA flight back to its traditional times ? What brilliant genius came up with a 0300 AM departure from BAQ to MIA ? A Transylvanian ? A vampire.

MEX is perfectly placed to be a transfer hub between all of South America and North America.

Are they having fifth freedom finally? The press release is not that clear for me. It looks like passengers can fly between BCN and MEX only and not continue to DXB. Emirates’ Mexico City flight will be a linked service with Barcelona, meaning that customers can now travel between the two cities in...Jump to post
The airplane just departed MAD heading CCS: https://fr24.com/ETR894/2148351c
Is CCS ready to receive an A380? Really?
This would have actually been a better plane than the A318, and these frames are owned by Avianca. Were lessors not interested in these frames? You mean interested in the A318? If so, one word: engines! Was a mess to deal with it (former O6 employee here). Yes it's better than A318 in most situatio...Jump to post

The route is transferring to IB under the LATAM/JV on 13/12/19 to be operated with a A332 4x/week. It's an increase rather than a decrease. When did the LATAM/IAG JV become active?

To the best of my recollection, only Turkish Airlines and Plus Ultra are the only airlines left whose flight crews layover at CCS.

Hernan ideas weren't bad at all. But as a personal opinion, he had a lack of industry knowledge. Probably we will see Gerardo Grajales coming as a CEO soon.

Well, the only way I can see a flight from LATAM possible from SCL to PTY, is if there are many chileans that are not from Santiago and are willing to travel to Panama, that way Latam can feed their flight from SCL, domestically.

I understand the increase to BCN is seasonal but the MCO increase is year-round. BTW, SCL will be seeing 3x daily B788s? That's the same amount of capacity as MAD!

Is a great move from LATAM, still missing some international move from them too.
