Would this mean that AA may fly B737-800 MIA-PBM 2-3 times per week soon?
to anywhere in North America would really, really make a dfference.
It doesn't matter where to really, but MIA
is certainly the most likely.
Probably the worst aspect of flights northwest from PBM
though is that you can find a flight out any day of the week between BW
, and PY
- but they all leave between 6:15am and 7:15 am (occasionally about 10am), but the next bank of flights is....wait for it....tomorrow morning at the same time. Same for arrivals - all flights from the NW
arrive between 11pm and 1 am. So while it works not too bad for connections (not as well as you would think though), if you miss a flight / if it cancels, or anything, there are no options. I've spent more than the occasional day hanging out in CUR
(excellent place to be 'stuck' for even a few hours), POS
(not so good), MIA
(blah - pay wifi, need lots of time to get anywhere interesting), BGI
(good if time to leave the airport), and so on.
It also means you get to wake up at 2 am for the 7 am flight (1.5 hour to the airport, min 2 hrs before flight checking, hotel shuttles leave about 2:30 am - blah), all for the opprotunity to wait 2 to 5 hours for a cnx in POS
So here's hoping that someone figures out the possibilities of direct PBM
, although I don't know how that would work, as I think Suriname is FAA Cat 2 anyway, so as I understand it new direct PBM
flights (there are none now) would be allowed only for US airlines...which might not go over well poltically at the PBM
Ironic though, with all the connections and such involved, it is generally easier and more convenient to get to Europe from PBM
than it is to anywhere in North America!
