Re: BOG-ORD on AV finally launches

Why is AV releasing these routes when they're having several issues with their domestic work.

Its like they want to get fined by a proper authority.

Re: Japan Airlines To Miami By Next Year?

This Right. It is pretty unwise for a ULCC to deviate from fleet commonality. I would be shocked if their next order is for anything but the A321neoLR. The A321NLR will unlock so much South American potential for Spirit. I don't see them going into Europe, but flights like DTW-ANC, ORD-BOG, MCO-LIM...
