How are Volaris doing on SJO-CUN and GUA-CUN. I have heard anecdotally that the flights are hit and miss LF wise.

I know that CUN-GUA-CUN has an average of 105 pax per flight around 67 LF

The picture shows the actual availability at volaris.com for the first week of April 2018 on Q6 SJO-GDL 3x weekly.
That flight is loaded with only 23 seats on the 319 jet by now.
Their empty seats have been displayed in dark blue color as shown below.

Does that mean a 4+ hour stop in IAH en-route to PEK?

Exactly !
In my view, one different crew should be attending the IAH-PTY-IAH sector.
Furthermore, the immigration service is compulsory once in Houston for those passengers flying from Panama City to Asia and back.

The photo shows a very decent load factor in Volaris Costa Rica.
However, the illustration belongs to the high season where it is logical to expect a better occupation on flights.

It's finally underway: LH 518 and their (to my knowledge) LH's first regular scheduled service to Central America, is on the way to SJO, although it departed with a 43 minute delay. Per Flightradar24, it is estimated to arrive 40 minutes late at SJO as of right now.

Unless you are referring to the historical "Central America" (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica), then yes. Otherwise, you forgot that LH already flies to PTY.

Yeah, I remembered just now to clarify that. I apologise to anyone from Panama and Belize for this misunderstanding (BTW, I can't wait until my flight to PTY in a couple of weeks and walk through the city again for the first time in over 30 years). I was indeed thinking about the historical Central America and not the geographical Central America.

Update: ETA per Flightradar24 is now 17:33 hrs CST, 22 minutes ahead of schedule, plus it's about to meet with DE 2235, which is returning from SJO via SDQ. Just wanted to note this because of the coincidence, one is leaving SJO, says hi to the one flying to SJO.

DE is going to be in real trouble at SJO (since it has a SDQ stopover) against LH.

Perhaps they should consider moving the tag to GUA or CTG where there is less competition

I don't think you can compare DE with LH that much, because DE departs FRA late at night and LH in the afternoon. LH will likely cater a bit more to business traffic and even diplomatic traffic for the German embassy. Plus I dunno if 767s have the legs to make FRA-GUA nonstop, considering that FRA-SJO takes about 12 hours flight on the westbound. SU did pull of SVO-LAX on a 767, but that was a north-south routing IIRC, so you don't have to put up with the strong headwinds on the westbound segment over the North Atlantic during the winter.

What DE should do (and I don't understand why nothing happened on that front) is invest in new or at least newer aircraft, like in A330s or used 772s.

I think yellowtail meant tag on tu GUA or CTG from SDQ, not a direct flight. A tag on SDQ - CTG would be great for me as I live in the DR.

Then again, remember that DE is operating FRA-PTY as well (with stops via SDQ and SJU), along with LH, so if DE appears to make PTY work with LH offering the nonstop option, they can also continue to make SJO work.

DE stopped flying to PTY a couple of months after LH entered the market. The way DE serves PTY is by connecting passengers using CM at SDQ and PUJ..

German embassy and business traffic alone will not sustain this LH SJO flight. And there are very few connection opportunities (like in PTY). This flight is about tourism, plain and simple. And for that they will be going head to head with DE, Who is running a one stop. I give DE 6 months before they throw in the towel against LH on FRA SJO.

I didn't say it would sustain the flight, I said that it caters a bit more to diplomatic and business traffic than DE would (and let's face it, no disrespect to DE but which business man or diplomat wants to fly on a tourist airline anyway when on official business?). I am aware that this is a leisure route first and foremost.

Condor Flugdienst is also operating DE MUC-SDQ-SJO 1x weekly with 763, aside from DE FRA-SDQ-SJO 2x weekly with 763.
Having said that, I don't think the opening of LH FRA-SJO 2x weekly will suddenly stop the services of DE in San Jose.

And the caption in that picture is wrong because last Thursday was the first regular scheduled flight operated by LH between FRA and SJO. There was a charter flight over 5 years ago that came to SJO from MUC, operated by LH.

From Copa's website: (In Spanish)

Copa Airlines announces that the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela ordered, by resolution published in Official Gazette No. 6369, on April 5, 2018, the suspension of the economic, commercial and financial relationship with subjects of the Republic of Panama, which includes the suspension of Copa Airlines flights to Venezuela for a period of 90 days extendable.

In order to provide assistance to passengers who have scheduled flights to and from Venezuela in the next 90 days, Copa Airlines offers the possibility of reimbursing the total value of their unused airline tickets without penalties. In the same way, passengers who have started their flight may reimburse the unused route without penalties.

Rumours in PTY indicate that perhaps CM will re-start PTY-CUC-PTY while its equipment isn't allowed to land in Venezuela.

Copa Airlines already studied Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit in 2013. Same with SJD.
You can find some press releases making a google exercise.
Probably they have an accurate answer for the lack of such services. In my view, few demand of passengers to sustain any CM PTY-PVR.
It should be noted that AeroMexico and AeroMexico Connect are supplying flights on behalf of both AV and CM, among other carriers from abroad.
CM canceled in 2016 their flights to Puebla and Villahermosa. They didn’t last too much.
They’d need to be cautious with their intended Mexican stations.

Question: I remember reading that when AF goes year-round on CDG-SJO, that until November, they'd downgrade from a 77W to a 77E. On Flightradar24, I saw that today's flight was operated by a 77W. Now, I'm not complaining, I love it when we have more big aircraft at SJO, but did AF decide to continue flying the 77W year-round to SJO or are there other operational reasons for that.

CM Airlines from Honduras displays a bunch of local destinations: Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Roatan, Puerto Lempira, Utila Island, Guanaja Island, Copan, Tela, Cabo Gracias a Dios, Choluteca and Trujillo.
Furthermore, it flies internationally to Guatemala City, Belize City and San Salvador Ilopango. Some code-share services may apply.
It’s the acronymus of Cielo Maya. Don’t confuse it with Copa Airlines.


Let L-410





Embraer EMB-110.

Cielo Maya is also affectionately known as Copalito in some circles.

I believe CM Airlines' large aircraft are leased from TAG Airlines. On another note, these two need better names.
nice and spacious airports in need of new airlines and flights... GUA or FRS anyone?... anyone at all?

The source Wikipedia states that TAG from Guatemala will fly to Punta Cana as part of their future plans, in 2018.
The website of the airline is also displaying PUJ.

I have read some contradictory reports regarding airline ops and terminal use in GUA. Some sources claim there is a separate "domestic terminal" where TAG is departing from (to FRS) and some sources claim this is not the case and every airline is now housed in just one terminal ("international" or"main"). Reading the Wikipedia entry on GUA does not give me any insights either.
So what is it?

Dieuwer.
TAG Airlines is using the terminal for all of it's flights domestic and international. Local flights have some special gates below gate 3A and 3B. So TAG and Aviancal domestic flights leave from this place. There are no amenities, restaurants, nothing, just seats and bathrooms.

The possible route on 5U GUA-PUJ should be flown on the ERJ-145. However, it's a long segment for that plane: more than three hours in a regional jet.
The 5U GUA-BZE 5x weekly sector is served on the ERJ-145.

No it is not. It is on the EMB 110.

So, the information displayed into the Wikipedia page on TAG is wrong.
Was it ever served on the ERJ-145 ?
