I don't understand this. I though LAN operated to the UK, but I have no trace of them

Nope, unfortuantly, LAN does not serve London. But I belive they do on a codshare basis.
Its a shame, because I'd love to see that livery at LHR or LGW.

Do LAN have any plans of perhaps adding LHR/ LGW or CDG?????

Is there any long term long haul fleet plan, I think they have a couple 763ers and A340s outstanding???

Not as far as I'm aware, BA couldnt make the route work via EZE and having IB and LA together means that what would be a one-stop SCL-LHR service, can be a one-stop non-direct SCL-LHR. LA codeshare with both BA and IB from MAD/BCN/EZE and, I think, GIG.

There you go, not a schedule flight, but, it's a Lan Chile 747 in Heathrow!

Just codesharing. AMS and CDG are Lan Cargo destinations, though

BA drop SCL in 1996 (I think), a shame. maybe they could try a 777 instead of a 744, although since BA is partner of LA/IB, I don't think they are in the mood for competition

That 747 was leased from Air Lingus, so I think that was a part of the delivery of the aircraft, not regular service

The comment on the pic notes that it had been returned and was operating for EI at the time of the picture.

nope the CDG Cargo flights were moved years ago into FRA.
AMS is served 3 weekly with cargo aircrafts since last year.

I've done the route a few times. There's a reason why BA no longer serves SCL. The LA flight SCL-EZE that BA puts it's code on has always been less than half full with at most 3 people in the J cabin and the BA flight is just about EMPTY on EZE-GRU. GRU-LHR, about every seat is full in J/F, never wandered back to Y. Normally there's one or two more pax in F, once now I've been alone in the cabin. J is 1/4th full at best on the 777. So... there you have it. May be the time of year that I travel (So.Am summer, No.Am/Euro winter). I'm not sure.

I would love to see LAN at LHR, also would be great to see AM, MX and AV  Smile

Do you think a SCL-MIA-LON flight would work, not sure if rights could be secured though?

SCL-MIA-LHR would be a disaster with the new post 9/11 security arrangements in the USA. Iberia had a hub in Miami for central america and they killed it because everyone going to central america had to clear customs in Miami, it was a disaster. Right now BA has only one roye to South America, LHR-GRU-EZE. It would only make sense to operate to SCL if LHR-EZE-SCL could work as a separare nonstop flight or if the extension from Sao Paulo went to SCL say 3 days a week and to EZE on the other 4 days of the week.

The GRU flight actually only continues to EZE four times a week, the other three days it continues to GIG. So adding SCL would mean dropping GIG. Any chance of a LHR-GIG nonstop, before VS?

Can a BA 777 do LHR-SCL via GRU or EZE work again. LH and RG no longer fly the route.

I'm not too sure if this would be feasible, but how about extending BA235 (LHR-GRU, commencing 3 Dec 2006) to GIG, it would require the flight to be rescheduled, but would allow BA247 to continue to SCL three times a week.

Do you mean BA246 EZE-GRU-LHR? The EZE sector actually makes more money for BA than the GIG tag, which is why it's flown 4x weekly, over GIG's 3x weekly.

Quoting Jfk777 (Reply 12):

BA flies LHR-GRU-GIG and LHR-GRU-EZE (BA247). BA235 LHR-GRU commences Dec 2006. I doubt BA will fly to GIG non-stop, GIG is quite a low-yield destination, apparently, at least when compared to GRU and EZE.

I remember the days of service to CCS, BOG, SCL....ahhh, those were the days......!

Today, LAN only operates one passenger flight into Europe: SCL-MAD-FRA. Everyone that has been on that flight for the last couple of years will tell you it's always full! So, now the question is: How many of these passengers have other final destinations interesting for LAN? Oneworld has already IB and BA in Europe, so making a business case out of any new flight to Europe should not be easy, particularly if you see that LAN does not have any LR spare capacity.

In my dreams, I could maybe see a flight to AMS (in competition with KL/AF via CDG), with a stopover in GRU or EZE or LIM) or maybe even into CPH or OSL (to serve big Chilean community in Scandinavia).

I flew to ORY via MAD last year. All counter paperwork at SCL was real fast, so it's pretty easy to use codesharing for the rest of Europe. It's IB and not LA, but it does work...

...yes, it works, but IB is really a couple of steps behind LAN in all respects. I just flew 7 sectors with IB, and I can tell you that only 1 took off in time, with the worst having 2.5 hours delay; bad in flight service (non-existent in european flights), very bad in flight entertaining system and a lot of cranky F/A!
