    Default Delta Airlines adds Flight to Liberia, CR

    Found this the other day and may be of use to someone. Looks like several seasonal flights into Liberia which is in option if you are traveling to Nicaragua and cannot find a decent fair in MGA.

    It would be nice if there were a few more west coast non-stops to both MGA and SJO. The LAX-IAH-MGA is my usual route,, but I've had a couple of weather issues in the summer

    I'm trying the Delta redeye from LAX to SJO this Sunday. One 50lb bag free and the second $40 . . . .I really like the TACA and COPA service .. .

    Prices have been very high through this summer season, starting to come down a bit finally. I'd like to go back and forth more frequently . . . .

    Liberia WOULD be my preferred destination now that I have a toe-hold in CR as well as the farm in Nicaragua, but flights to Liberia have been consistently much higher.

    I sure miss the old $139 AA RTs from MIA to SJO plus another $50 for a business class upgrade.

    Maybe one day soon they will be adding direct flights to Big Corn.

    Looks like once again work on the airport has come to a halt, may just be the weather.

    I'm guessing Miami but maybe also MSP. How sweet would that be for Rightsiders?

    Not me. A quick check: ATL-->LIR on Oct 3 costs $521/adult, one way. Delta has few hubs. I'd have to fly to Atlanta, and arrange to stay overnight in Liberia + bus fare + the border-crossing hassle &c. Much too costly. Compare to AA from PHL-->MIA-->MGA costs $393 per, same date, one way.

    The Delta flights to LIR are convenient for all those gringos in Minnesota (& north) who bought beach-front properties in Guanacaste (that once was part of Nicaragua, like Alaska was once part of Russia).
    I never met a Semite I didn't like.

    Google seems to say a 737-800 will land on a 1,500m runway..

    But from memory I do not think all 1,500m of Big corn runway was paved..

    Flying from 'Tranna (Toronto) it costs $9 less to fly to LIR instead of MGA - Chose a 2 week window in mid October for the comparison.

    $774 vs $783

    I only looked at Liberia flights once and they were way high compared to MGA or SJO.

    As many times as I have been to Liberia I have never seen the airport, it is West of town a few miles.

    What's a Key West Pirate doing in LA? Jimmy Buffet would revoke your Margaritaville passport!

    It's a long story, has to do with a younger wife working a few more years before retirement.

    I'm actually not in LA, more here:

    http://www.rockcreeklake.com/index.p...=57&Itemid=127

    where I was hiking yesterday. I'm five hours NE of LA on the Nevada border, nice place but , , , , And, not much pirate activity for sure. We don't bother locking anything up even if we're gone for a few days.

    Logistics are difficult, no Costco, no HOme Depot, not even a WalMart! ... .. as the song goes "every refuge has a price . . ."

    I'm going back "home" this Sunday.

    Had to run down the road to get gas for the machine and work has resumed, must have been waiting on weather or materials. Looked like ants building a mound.
