Sad to see A321's go on MIA-POS, they are like chalk to cheese compared to 738's on EWR-MIA. Love the IFE's. LI's service OGL-BGI and onward with B6 to FLL or JFK is a great option for Guyanese now. OGL is a breeze and my choice as I live close by. LI's ATR's are very smooth and surprisingly on time. The cost is usually less than BW.



LI''s service would require an overnight in BGI to catch the FLL flight and would require a 5+ hour wait for the JFK flight or a 2 hour wait for the later JFK flight given LI's reliability 2 hours might be cutting it too close I dont think those are great options.
On another note VS inaugural LHR-BGI was launched on Tuesday lets see how it performs this season.


I forgot to mention I would usually spend a night or two in BGI with friends, or just spend the day at the beach, I am usually not in a hurry when travelling with my family.

No mention of KIN-HAV.

Is there sufficient traffic between POS and HAV to sustain a flight out of POS instead of KIN?


There is quite a bit of traffic between GEO and HAV with Cuban shoppers. If prices for basic consumer items in POS are competitive to GEO and if Cubans don't need visas to enter T&T then POS can benefit from this as well.

I think that the charter operation to GEO was banned forcing Cubans to use CM. If BWs fares and baggage policies are competitive to those of CM then they can get some of this traffic as well.

I think Cuba is dragging its feet with the KIN segment. Clearly this is more lucrative, As of now people must use KX via GCM,


As far as I know Air Aruba does HAV-GEO, probably as a charter.

BW has reduced service to FLL from POS through July. I figured this was coming as it seems like a weak route compared to their MIA service and as was previously stated, the route was not daily prior to B6's entry in the market. As B6 cut back, they probably felt they could too.

Virtually all of the FLL POS route is O&D whereas a high % of AAs MIA POS service consists of in transit passengers. FLL is also a lower yielding route as it doesn't have the business segment that MIA has.

BW is also "rightsizing" on its JFK and YYZ flights into POS as well. Outside of peak periods WS has also severely slashed its YYZ POS flights as well.

I wonder how many of these people had reservations. Some folks think that they can just show up and expect a plane waiting to fly them.
