Caracas is a nightmare now. Security and power are daily issues. Not safe to take personnel off the airport, or even away from the international terminal.

Payments need to all be in a stable foreign currency. The aircraft basically has to arrive fully provisioned for the outbound leg.

Fewer Venezuelans are able to travel now so load factors can’t be great.

Strange choice for a flagship route.

You'd be surprised the CCS-IST catering is loaded in CCS. I spoke to the general manager and the airline is "very surprised" at how good the catering service is.

Also, all tickets are being sold in USD only.
