Can anybody tell me which callsign LAN Argentina is using these days? Also, which planes is it using? Does it have its own dedicated fleet or is it integrated in the LAN groupwide fleet planning and rotations?
Also, can somebody shed some light on the link between LAN Argentina and Southern Wind? I believe LAN Argentina took over Southern Wind's AOC, right?

LAN Argentina's IATA code is 4M and their ICAO code is DSM. Their flights are easily recognized in Lan's schedules because they are four-digit flight numbers starting with the number 4.
As part of the conditions for allowing them to operate an Argentinian airline, the government of Argentina required Lan to use LV-registered aircraft on all Lan Argentina flights, and to not cycle them throughout the network as they do with Lan Chile, Lan Peru, and Lan Ecuador. As a result, they have 2 or 3 767s and maybe 4 A320s (can't recall OTOH). I don't know about crews, though.
