I would assume that the Airbus facility at MOB was build to withstand strong hurricanes. With Sally going to get awfully close to it with 100MPH winds, and 6-9ft storm surge are there any almost finished aircraft sitting outside that can't be flown but are in danger?Jump to post
With the right slots in place at both ends you can comfortably run a daily SYD-LHR nonstop service with 2 aircraft. Each aircraft would spend 20-21 hours a day in the air with 3-4 hours between flights. 20 hours of flying time per day for the aircraft is great utilisation. if the yields are suffici...Jump to post

There has been no official announcement for the opening of the airports in Belize. On May 14th, local authorities indicated that July 01st is steel a tentative target date on reopening the Philip Goldson International airport [BZE] and allowing travel to Belize. August 15th start date was announced...Jump to post

This will do well. Ideally suited to MSP type of vacationers. It has the same sort of traffic as BZE which IIRC SY is on record as saying was doing really well for them.Jump to post
Think of all these airports that spent billions to get 380 ready. What a wasteJump to post
- Mex (North America) > Spain via Lis is a no brainier at some stage - yields on CPT with connections onwards are probably as good as JNB , perfectly explains the short time on the ground - PTY with codeshares on Copa possibly JV would be very very interesting - CUN is clearly aimed at connections ...Jump to post
Or LGW-PTY? I thought this possible flight would be via LHR for being potentially more of a business destination than SJO, which does have LGW flights. As I've written earlier on this forum, PTY and CM have been waiting for a LON flight for so long that they will be more than happy if PTY just gets...Jump to post
Unconfirmed news with ramifications for service within the Central American region
https://www.reportur.com/aerolineas/202 ... a-aerobus/
Haven't been to Honduras but my impression was that most of the demand from New York would be vfr and missionaries. There would probably be more service if there is actually business demand there. Well there is that but there is quite a bit of manufacturing (check the label of your shirt next time)...Jump to post
Now that Avianca is about to end JFK-SAP in a few weeks, I can see B6 adding this route to their network in the future and do good on it. I think it could work on a 4x weekly basis on off-peak and daily basis in peak season on A320. Problem with Honduras is that there is not much business or leisur...Jump to post
Current outbreak scare aside one would have thought that there would substantial traffic from the one of the most populous nations on earth to one of the most populous cities.
I was in MEX recently and there were ALOT of Japanese and Chinese visitors mulling around the various sites.
DL is launching JFK GCM in June. 1 x weekly

I have flown LHR MIA many times, most on AA and just sitting waiting for my bag at the carousel I see tons of onward intl bag tags coming down the chute (especially since AA has a nice evening bank to Latin America that connects well from AA39. I have seen many GYE, GUA, GCM, MGA, KIN, UIO tagged ba...Jump to post
Looking forward to seeing F9 in GUA and SAL this year. I also think we will see one, maybe two surprise long haul services announced to the region.
As for jetblue. They have probably missed their best window of success opportunity to open up flights to GUA, SAL, PTY, BZE et al.
anectdotally I have flown it a few times because I love the SQ service. Y has always been light (except when I did it one July), J mostly full. always saw lots of cargo being loaded at IAH.Jump to post
Tangentially related: I am on FlightAware right now and Copa has flights on the way to: Santiago Chile, 2 flights, scheduled to leave PTY 5 mins apart Sao Paulo, 3 flights, scheduled to leave PTY within 15 mins of each other Orlando, 2 flights, scheduled to leave PTY 20 mins apart Is this normal sc...Jump to post

Here is a novel idea WN. Red eyes. Get your pilots to agree to that and that will allow for some growth while you wait out the max issue.Jump to post
Lets for a wild moment assume that this happens, a WN B6 merger or buyout would nicely fix FLL for WN, probably put a halt to B6 transatlantic aspirations, immediately give Kelly those some 50+ extra destinations he has spoken of (mostly in Caribbean and Latin), strengthen eastern corridor for WN, a...Jump to post
