On June 12, I’m going with my youth group on a missions trip to Nicaragua (I went last year also)! From KBHM (Birmingham Shuttlesworth Intl.) to KIAH (George Bush Intercontinental) in a United Erj-135/145. From there we go on a United B739 (United 1714) to (Managua, Nicaragua). On the 19, we return on the same planes!
I bet you will spot lots of a Copa Airlines aircraft. Good trip.
That’s where I’m from.
I would love to track your flight.
I went last year and ended up in the hospital when I got back lol
What was it for?? (That’s pretty sweet how you’re from there)😜
Hey! I’m going on a mission trip to Nicaragua this weekend (may 20th) out of KIAH as my group is Houston based. We will be flying United 1432 (B738) going and coming back May 30th on United 1433 (B739).
Are you going with Global Brigades by any chance?
Yeah, born but not raised. 🇨🇷🇳🇮❤️
Are you a Christian?
@nk1021 & are you a Christian as well?
What do you mean what was it for? The trip? Or the hospitalization? 😂😅
In Nicaragua you will see a lot of Avianca, United and some Copa Airlines aircraft(s). I go there every year, it’s a blast being in the new airport!
I am a Christian but went to Castillo del Ray (King’s Castle). @elisua I was wondering about hospitalization
Last year a subsidiary of Avianca ATR-72 parked in the next gate to us when we’re leaving. It was pretty sweet!
I went on a similar mission trip to Honduras. Talk about an insane final approach. I think Tegucigalpa was ranked #3 for most dangerous airports.
Wonderful! Enjoy your trip!
Wow, nice. Me too!
Well, the doctors here first thought I had meningitis (that’s how bad it was) so they took Cerebrospinal fluid [CSF] but I had nothing in that regard.
They never really ‘determined’ what I had but I am positive it was chikungunya. It was very very severe.
You get fevers, headaches, weakness, joint pain, etc.
OMG that sounds awful!
Yup! It was awful.
Heck yeah! I mostly see A320’s, but I flew on a Taca (Avianca) ATR to San Salvador!
Awesome. I love the great cause of the trip.
You’re right @Sturmovik, Managua is a focus city for copa airlines. I remember my first trip to Nicaragua, it was awesome, also I have friends from there.
Been there a few years ago. Beautiful place. Just don’t drink the water ;) praying you have a safe and fun trip, God bless
Yeah last year we ran out of bottled water one morning and we had to brush our teeth with Gatorade 😝
Wot… That makes things worse xD
