Re: Central American Aviation Thread - 2019

I see no reason why PTY-PHL can't work. Just as I see no reason why CM should not add CAY, GCM, UVF, SAT and AUS to its network. PHL may work, the question is when would be the propper time to add that destination to CM network. IMHO, in The States, same applies for PHX, DFW, AUS/SAT, PVD, BWI, BNA...

Right now, though, it's still essential they keep some of the 50 seaters in their fleet as they operated a high number of routes which can really only sustain a 50 seater max.
