I don't think UA ever flew between DEN and PTY. UA DEN-PTY 7x weekly with 73G was in service from December 2014 till September 2015. It did operate later as seasonal service from December 2015 to February 2016; twice a week. Finally, CM PTY-DEN 4x weekly with 738 started in December 2017 and UA DEN...Jump to post

By the way, I didn't know about the mentioned flights landing in Roatan from Italy.
From Milan as non-stop flights ?
I could be wrong, but the sole runway in the island don't seem too large to accomodate to any long-haul plane comfortably.

Could someone elaborate on why DL won't do DTW-SJO nonstop? . It sounds like an interesting point. SJO is a very well served market from several stations in the United States like PHL, PHX and CLT. These airports have little connectivity with other parts of the isthmus or practically do not exist a...Jump to post
Copa Airlines has only opted for the 738s in the recent years.
I don’t have any idea about the future plans concerning to the replacement of their E90 frames.
Last 73G: 2003.
Last E90: 2009.
The source wikipedia states that Copa Airlines will fly to Arequipa soon.
Frequencies and equipment have not been confirmed yet.
Anyone knows why AV reduced SAL-CLO from daily to 5x between August and mid November this year? I have no idea. Perhaps AV is just adjusting the demand of passengers to the proper frequencies. Speaking again about Mexico City - San Jose, four carriers are now serving that market as non-stop flights...Jump to post

As of September 12th, MIA might resume their activities due to Hurricane Irma.
The bulky market South Florida - Central America is even suspended.
Lots of stranded passengers in both directions.
Copa Airlines is solidly flying to Venezuela: Caracas, Valencia and Maracaibo.
Many carriers have already ceased their services to Venezuela. However, CM doesn't seem to stop these flights.
Some sources are posting that Santa Barbara Airlines from Venezuela won't fly the Caracas - Panama City sector beyond September 01.Jump to post
Copa Airlines has the credit of launching several regional destinations where their competitors do not have a sustainable level of success. However, some of these stations have to grow even more, in the coming years. For example, Liberia, Belize City and Holguin receive no more than two weekly fligh...Jump to post
I remember when Copa was announcing new destinations nearly every six months. Has the expansion stopped? In my view, this policy was suddenly changed due to the withdrawal of several routes: September 30, 2015: CM PTY-IQT. Iquitos December 15, 2015: CM PTY-VCP. Vracopos June 30, 2016: CM PTY-PBC.

How many times have they tried this service? This would be actually the second time. AV SAL-EWR was active from 2013 to 2015.

At what point does a European carrier do Managua. Madrid comes to mind as the only feasible European destination for the time being. The day when IB would resume Managua isn't exactly clear.

I've already watched the video from the Costa Rican Government posted on social media and related to the new flight.
They're are promoting LH FRA-SJO as the eight European carrier in Costa Rica: Iberia, Air France, KLM, Edelweiss, Condor, Thomson, British Airways and Lufthansa.
Air Europa is playing in a different league, unlike Wamos, Thomson, Edelweiss, Condor and other European airlines focused merely to leisure purposes. I can almost remember some talks here about the possibility of UX in Panama, when Copa Airlines belonged to Sky Team grouping as well. The idea never ...Jump to post
CM just celebrated its two-year anniversary in MSY. Here's to many more. CM PTY-MSY is still served with the E90 and it's not operating daily yet.

The Mexican low-cost carrier called Volaris started in 2015 the segments GDL-SJO 2x weekly plus CUN-SJO 2x weekly. Both frequencies were increased to thrice a week last year.

So the flight will be operated with 319.
They're working careful to study the behavior of the demand of passengers.
321s will likely be used. I'm still puzzled about how will it work later. The route will probably be maketed by LATAM Peru division and it would be timed to promote easy connections within Peru and the rest of South America through Lima.
