Hard to believe indeed, as SJU-CCS was the only non-AA hub route left out of SJU.
AA must be too dumb to just drop the route (and the authority) knowing it's practically impossible for a U.S. airline to get frequencies to Venezuela.

but most passengers in fact use the flight for transiting to NYC and MIA.

Quoting 2travel2know2 (Reply 195):
Now if AA really is dropping SJU-CCS, there's a sizable O/D traffic between Puerto Rico and Venezuela so somebody will get it.. Both 7I and BW should study how to take advantage of the lack of flights between those

as mentioned many passengers on the flight are passengers bound to JFK and MIA. would be a shame if its true that they cancled the flight.

I think that BW's usual trick of eliminating competition by flooding the market and killing yields worked. Westjet is off after April, and apparently not coming back for the busy summer. YYZ POS is a VFR/business route so I cannot imagine that WS only planned winter service. Aside from the Xmas/New Year and Carnival periods, demand is very soft in the winter months on these VFR routes, and summer is the best season.

[Cayman Islands] Air and cruise arrivals up
"Air arrivals in the Cayman Islands in 2012 were the highest in 11 years, while cruise arrivals were up on last year’s numbers, tourism minister Cline Glidden said Thursday.
Last year, 321,650 tourists flew into Cayman, an increase of 12,558 people or 4.1 per cent over air arrivals in 2011.
December posted the highest number of arrivals for the month of December in 12 years, with 35,408 visitors flying in – an increase of 6.2 per cent over December 2011.
Mr. Glidden said the air arrival numbers had “exceeded all expectations”.
Cruise arrivals were also up, with 1,570,370 people arriving by ship last year, an increase of 7.6 per cent on 2011.
However, Mr. Glidden pointed out that, while the cruise numbers were up year on year, 2011 had been “a very bad year” for cruise arrivals. “Obviously, we’re still 
concerned about the number even though we have an increase in 2012,” he said."

Bdos needs to get as aggressive about attracting tourists from Latin Am as Jamaica is. That is the only way there will be a PTY-BGI, as I doubt there is the business traffic which exists into and out of T&T. Indeed the additional CM service to POS provides better connecting opportunities on BW and LI for people traveling to/from neighboring countries.

The Bajan descended population in Panama is too disconnected from BGI to be a consistent source of business. Few of them have real ties, given the tremendous time perioid since their ancestors left BGI, and the paucity of links since then.

Delta Airlines scraps Georgetown-New York route
"Delta Airlines has decided to pull out of Guyana, ending its five year old direct charter service between New York and Georgetown, well-placed sources said.
A Delta Airlines Latin America spokesperson did not immediately respond to queries. A reservations agent in the United States said there were no available flights in June but he could not give a reason."

http://www.demerarawaves.com/index.p...s-georgetown-new-york-flights.html

Not sure if this is true but this is one interesting information that is coming out. I just checked the GDS the flights are still on there, but the flights have been zeroed out in the booking system.
Well EZjet caused one casualty in their pricing structure and it seems that DL lost a load of money on the route during the last 12 months fighting to keep market share with CAL and EZjet.

For risk of sounding like a broken record, I couldn't agree any more with this sentiment. Latin America is geographically very close to us, and economically, economies like Brazil are on the rise and are becoming globally more influential as traditional tourism source markets for us slide into recession (i.e US, UK, Europe). We managed to secure GOL out of Brazil's economic capital, GRU, some years ago and there has been little done since to stimulate the Brazilian market and develop it as a new, potentially lucrative tourist source market for the island! It is simply depressing how laissez-faire the Barbadian tourism powers-that-be have been with developing Brazil and other Latin American markets, such as the same Panama.

I just wish they would take a look around and realize that as a tourism destination, our very complacent approach and laid-back, "they will come anyway because we have beaches" attitude to developing Barbados for the 21st century tourism industry, is a recipe for certain disaster as other, similar Caribbean outposts are beginning to outshine us and outperform us in the global market.

There's only so much Rihanna can do for the island.

BW is still charging low fare son its nonstop route. DL lost its biggest competitive feature, being the only credible nonstop to GEO, and so either had to match these fares, or exit.

Its never good for one airline to dominate any market, so lets hope PY begins their PBM GEO JFK service soon. BW should actually welcome then, as if they have a monopoly other, more formidable carriers might decide to jump in. B6 if they get enough planes to service a route of this length, being one option as they have already had chats with the govt of GY. Two carriers on the route will keep them out as it is not very heavy for 8 months of the year.

Quoting caribbean484 (Reply 219):

GND is seasonal becaiuse the GND govt is not interested in paying a subsidy to DL, to cover low LFs in these periods, when BW is available, and preferred by Grenadians who dominate the JFK GND route. DL seems to ahve dropped JFK ANU because if they arent flying during the busiest period, the winter, do not know when else they would. AA drove them out with their higher frequencies.

Quoting hausauflennon (Reply 221):

I often get the impression that the powers that be in Bdos tourism feel that seats available means butts in seats. Our resident "Caribbean" Brazilian, had a very bad experience on that island and I cant imagine that he is the only one. If a Brazilian can go to SXM, AUA, the Dom Rep, etc and get decent treatment, no need to bother with Bdos.

Bdos isnt even doing well in the US market. Note that they are back to the JFK MIA (token service from CLT) and excessively dependent on AA (we do not know what that airline plans for the Caribbean. Once you back out Bajans and their descendants i suspect that SLU gets more US visitors.

As I mentioned before the one thing CAL has over DL is a lower operating cost, economies of scale which in turn offers a vast share of pricing and scheduling.
Maybe Inbound can correct me, but when Brunton was COO of CAL, their policy was to tanker fuel out of Trinidad into and out of Guyana as to not pay the high price of Jet A there.
CAL had over 70% of the JFK-GEO market despite the stop in POS and provides over 80% of the capacity there also. Looking at the Easter Period, their flights are already book solid on all markets and with Summer coming around the corner, the 3rd 767 will be much needed extra lift. I predict that they will increase the 424/425 daily and run the 526/527 more frequently.

It will be interesting so see PY start the route, whether they would use the A340 or as a rumor said last year switch to the 767, we will see. As for now and the foreseeable future CAL will remain dominant in GEO and GND.

PY is currently running a PBM>GEO>MIA routing with 733's (which they have 2 and a third is supposed to arrive soon). The A340 is dedicated to the PBM-AMS flights. and would not make much sense at all I think on North American routing.
Haven't heard anything recently about a 767 for PY, but it sounds like it would be a reasonable replacement for the A340. Although a 767 would more likely be better than an A340 for US destinations, I am not sure there is the demand for any widebody PBM to MIA or JFK. Even now there are a lot of empty seats many days on the BW, 7I, and PY flights (haven't flown 9H yet, but I imagine they are not full all the time either), so adding more north bound capacity won't do much for yields.

Quoting guyanam (Reply 222):

I'm just hoping that PY can eventually start a direct PBM-MIA routing - it would certainly give a lot more options and better timing, without needing to stop enroute somewhere. I think it's only due to not meeting the required FAA airport category.
A PBM-JFK route would be nice too, but probably not as strong a demand as there would be for a MIA routing. Would you even be able to reach PBM-JFK in a 733?

That is not true. If the FAA downgrades a country, it means that no aircraft with the registration of that country can fly to the U.S. when it was downgraded. If Surinam was downgraded before PY started their MIA service then they can keep flying the route without adding more capacity or starting new routes. Seeing that PY uses is own Surinamese registered aircraft to MIA there is something else that prefends PY from flying directly to the U.S. (maybe the TSA (security reasons?)).

WestJet Encore Announcement Feb 11 (by flyb Feb 7 2013 in Civil Aviation)

Straight from airlineroute.net

http://airlineroute.net/2013/02/11/ws-caribbean-s13/

WestJet in Summer 2013 season (from May 2013) is expanding operations to The Caribbean as well as Central America, with service to Liberia in Costa Rica and Port of Spain converting to year-round service. A number of Caribbean routes from Toronto will see additional flights added, compared to Summer 2012.

WS2742 YYZ0910 – 1223LIR 73W 5
WS2743 LIR1315 – 2031YYZ 73W 5

Toronto – Port of Spain
WS2772 YYZ2325 – 0504+1POS 73W D

Could well be the TSA or similar sort of logic.

I thought it had something to do with he FAA ratings, so I looked it up and found this
http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/iasa/

Looking at the excel list, Suriname rates a 1, while Guyana is a 2, so definitely the problem is not that PY is not adequately regulated, so they should be able to add flights to the US (which they have done with the relatively recent GEO-MIA flight).
I guess that leaves TSA or similar issues. SInce they have redone the security checkpoints in PBM in the last few months, maybe it is in support of improving the security rankings?

Yes 484, that's partially correct. We tanker fuel to GEO with enough to come back to POS on the return sector. It's also done to avoid the hassle of having the fuel trucks come out late at night to service our planes.

Now with 526 on the 767, we tanker some to GEO, but uplift the rest there before heading to JFK.

It appears as if Westjet has decided to extend service. When I made the comment about them being off the POS route their own website had a listing of seasonal routes and POS was one of them.

Quoting caribbean484 (Reply 223):

Do you really think that a route as lucartive a sthe JFK GEO will be allowed to be monopolized by one carrier? At least on the JFK POS those willing to stop over in MIA can use AA, which keeps BWs fares in line. But with GEO lacking such options, and with passengers liking to have alternate options some one is going to jump into the JFK GEO. After all Guyanese are the fifth largest immigrant group in the NY area.

If Jetblue does come in, they will be a more vigorous competitor than DL, was. DL was content to laze around with diminishing market share as they charged those who used them to avoid a POS stop, a huge premium. Of course those days ended last year when BW and EZ became nonstop.
