I was just reading La Razon from Bolivia and it stated that LAB will get two 767-200's next week for the international flights that it had previously suspended. Anybody else have information/confirmation on this?

In Spanish:

Trans Atlantic alquilará dos naves para que los vuelos suspendidos del LAB se restablezcan, dijo Issa. Las naves aéreas serán Boeing 767-200 y llegarán la próxima semana.

Well, there's plenty of parked 762's around, so I'm sure they would able to get their hands on a couple if they have the $$$.

Good. That will give some breath to LB´s finances and it won´t go the Varig way.

Yeah, but looked what happened while they were gone.

Their jewel route to Miami went from 10x weekly non-stops with LAB to 15x weekly non-stops without LAB (LAB is still flying to MIA, but via PTY right now).

Wasn't it actually financial problems (among them missing lease payments), which had LB return their 767 to the lessor in the first place? I guess LB got rather attractive lease rates for those 762s for them to acquire those.

BTW, does anyone have some info on where those 762s will come from?

Any idea of the range? The cash route for LB - would be VVI-MAD-VVI and was formerly flown with 763. Now, 5L serves the route with 742 nonstop.

True, AA increased service and 5L started service. However I understand seatloads are not so attractive now and with increased, justified safety measures some travellers might opt to fly to other destinations than to the USA, unfortunate for the US travell industry.

AA hasn't had an a seat go empty to Bolivia for weeks. Every flight is going out oversold with few exceptions, including the new frequencies.

Isn't it actually a 757 leased from Ryan International which flies VVI-MIA for 5L?

There's that one and then on the VVI-MAD route, Air Plus Comet now operate ex-AR 742s on the route exclusively on behalf of AeroSur.

123:

I have a couple of queries regarding AeroSur, a ver si me podés aclararlas:

-Can you identify their 2nd 732? All I know is that its current reg is CP-2476, but I cannot tell if it is the dinosaur that flew in from Africa (3C-HAC) or another one that used to fly for ANA of Japan.

-Whether or not their 722s CP-2423 and CP-2431 are flying or stored somewhere?

The two 767s are ex-United Airlines. Transatlantic Aviation acquired them while UA was in Ch 11.

The former LAB B763 would be in service with Mexicana and Santa Barbara in the near futur.

But the former UA B763 must be more expensive for lease than the former two aircrafts. Which two MSN would it be?

Looks like one of them will be 1982-build 767-200(ET) N610UA, exported to the UK in March last year, most likely now property of TAA. TT: 76,238 hours, TC: 18,724 cycles. Clearly no spring chicken!

Anyone know the status of LAB's active fleet? Anymore 727s returned? Is their -100 still flying?

According to today's paper they are flying or planning on flying to Washington Dulles via Miami with a 727!!!  Smile

La Razon:
The general manager of the LAB, Franklin Taendler, indicated that the flights to Miami and Washington have not been suspended. “We are flying with airplanes 727-200 that make an excellent work for that route, but are on the way to putting airplanes greater and of greater reach to be able to make non-stop flights to both destinies”, it said.

I didn't see it myself but I was told there was an AeroSur 737-200 in the MIA maintenance area the other day.

Trans Atlantic Aviation Limited (TAA). Who are they?

the MAD flight will probably be with the Luzair L1011.

Anybody knows the whereabouts of the LAB 767s and in what colors are they painted?

The planes come from GlobeJet Airlines. They have a fleet of 5 tristars.

GlobeJet Airlines? Are they affiliated with Luzair? It just happens that I was checking the website of Luzair and the cabin interior photos they have on their website appear to be the exact same photos as seen on the GlobeJet Airlines website. The aircraft also have the former Luzair colors (white fuselage/dark blue tail with no logos or titles on it).

On the other hand, it would be nice to see a L-1011 wearing the LAB colors Big grin

From the latest Aviaiton Daily, it appears this deal has unraveled. TAA never ponied up the cash nor aircraft and LAB is now working to undo the agreement.

LAB still flies to IAD; saw their 727 taxing out this evening at about 5p or so.

I don't think they ever stopped IAD in the last few months; LAB shows up once a week or so.
