German embassy and business traffic alone will not sustain this LH SJO flight. And there are very few connection opportunities (like in PTY). This flight is about tourism, plain and simple. And for that they will be going head to head with DE, Who is running a one stop. I give DE 6 months before the...Jump to post
In my opinion, this proves that the A319 is a reliable aircraft even after its main use. The A319 is unique because it has the right kind of fit in long and thin markets as well as short and large markets. Take BOS-NYC on the 319, short length and large market. Take AA's IND-LAX flight, not a terri...Jump to post
KL AMS-PTY 7x weekly, 772 all the way. No more 772 [5x weekly] plus 77W [2x weekly]. Effective: October 28. AV SAL-BZE 7x weekly, AT7 all the way. No more 320s. 4O MEX-SJO 14x weekly, 320 all the way. No more Sukhoi SuperJet 100. on KL @ PTY .....KL's SJO-AMS is probably hurting this flight a littl...Jump to post
Thanks Enilria! Seems AA wants to expand in Portland. The CLT has been a tad under 2 in summers past but the 2 extra ORD flights are new right? Sad to see AA cut Bolivia (and subject it to the 7M8) but I suppose LA/LP Lima connections will Be available for those who need them. I wonder how much mar...Jump to post
KL, LH, and AF is SJO is also about connections to the Far East, India and russia. Something IB was not strong at. the Chinese, Japanese, And Indian traffic (tourism and diaspora) should not be underestimated. Many are eager to avoid the visa needed for transit in the USA.Jump to post
I have also heard the AV route was not performing so poorly either but the extra 2 hours required to avoid Venezuelan airspace made rendered made it inviable. If the prices are competitive to make PTY a MIA shopping alternative then yes Bajans would give it a go but as it stands the fares from BGI ...Jump to post
According to the news here in BGI it will be a 2 times a week service operated by the E190 lets see if this route works. It should and it should build. at 2 X weekly it is not very attractive to business travellers. Going to SJO from BGI for example might still be better via MIA. However once shopp...Jump to post
I was already having withdrawals from a Sunday morning without the new OAG thread. My fix is now complete.
One HUGE bug is http://www.southwest.com will not work from overseas IP addresses. So when I book travel to the states I can't book additional flights on Southwest unless I use a VPN to alter my IP address.... just nuts. It does from some and should from all but if for some reason your IP is blackl...Jump to post

I think the new Cessna prop replaces the 20 seater no?
while I don' think a DOH-SAL flight is imminent, SAL is a good a place in any in Central America to fly into for QR if they wanted to take a gamble. they could partner with AV for access to its SAL hub, and SAL (and nearby cities such as GUA) are not small at all. All have decent manufacturing and i...Jump to post
IAH LOS ADD should do well if they could get traffic rights on IAH LOSJump to post
Can ET's 777/787 make it ADD-SCL without restrictions? Might a way to one up EK.Jump to post
a bit of information on the UX flight to GUA. It will basically be a tag on to the SAP flight. The possible UX MAD-SAP-GUA doesn't seem to be competitive against the non-stop service IB MAD-GUA-SAL-MAD for those passengers boarding in Guatemala City. Furthermore, their weekly frequencies would hard...Jump to post

Great news for Belize !
AC YYZ-BZE has been scheduled as a seasonal flight.
It's complementing the current WS YYZ-BZE service.

IB had DC9s/319s flying MIA-SAP/PTY/GUA/SJO/SAL and MGA IIRC. They were timed to connect to / from MIA-MAD flights. The change of the intransitive procedures put an end to these flights
As we look back must have been horrible utilization on those aircraft and probably never made any money

Re: BGI IMHO it is all about risk versus more known opportunities elsewhere. I don’t think it would be a miracle but it’s probably at lot lower on the list than say extra frequencies to existing ejet destinations. This is the question for BGI. How do you fill 95 seats a week? Can business traffic to...Jump to post
CA hypothetical PEK IAH PTY makes no sense. The point of the PTY flight is to avoid US transit restrictions and routing via IAH negates that. Would be better off going via CUN or YVR.
Perhaps though this is a government induced flight. Chinese business ties to the ithmus are growing rapidly.
MID seems to really struggle with US service. Only IAH seems to have really stuck over the yearsJump to post
