LAN currently operates 15 weekly flights Chile-Brazil and will expand operations with GRU receiving an additional daily flight while GIG gets additional two daily. LAN will also operate seasonal flights to SSA and FLN nonstop:
In fact there are limits on the bilateral but due to the size of both markets, a comfortable limit, 63 weekly flights for each country.
RG keep 14, TAM now 14 (they get 7 to be used from POA, IGU, CWB or FLN), Gol 35.
LAN is the only one using frequencies for Chile.
No doubt the US-Brazil bilateral is underestimate nowadays but TAM is growing and nowadays they get 35 weekly flights (2 JFK and 3 MIA). Very soon will be 42 (with the new GIG-MIA). If RG resumes MIA and JFK and Ocean Air really runs LAX, we will see shortly 63 weekly flights from Brazilian airlines.
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
