IIRC LAN ordered 25 A32S aircraft in 2005. I came across this article (see link), in the article is written that LAN plans to buy 15 A32S aircraft, 5 long-haul aircraft and 4 cargo aircraft. Anyone knows if the single aisle aircraft are in addition to the 25 ordered in 2005? It isn't mentioned what widebody and cargo aircraft will be ordered. LAN operates the 767F but has also the A343 in her fleet.

LAN plans to buy five long-haul passenger planes, four cargo aircraft and 15 Airbus A320 model planes, scheduled for delivery between 2008 and 2011.

LAN said the planes cost a combined $1.8 billion at list prices, but airlines often get discounts when placing large orders.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

15 A32S aircraft would cost atleast US$900 million, unless they're all A318 aircraft. That leaves US$900 million for the remaining 9 aircraft (supposedly all new widebodied aircraft). That doesn't sound right.

So if they buy 4 767F how much would they have left to buy with for the 5 longhaul planes? How much are 767F (listprice)?

Cool! Maybe this means the end of the 732's! Nice birds for their time, but a tad outdated nowadays... specially regarding the overhead bins.

According to the Boeing website they're between US$143 million and US$155 million. It's seems that the article I quoted is not 100% accurate. The value of the order at listprice could be wrong or perhaps the type and or number of aircraft LAN is looking to purchase. Anyone from the region with more accurate information?

I can't find anything. The article does say "planned", so I'd assume it's not a new order.

Also, the B767Fs makes me suspicious that this isn't a new order as well.

The 767F wasn't mentioned in the article. Anyway, according to the Boeing order page all known 767F aircraft ordered by LAN have been delivered (8 in total). If these cargo aircraft are indeed 767F's, they'd probably be new orders or undisclosed orders already booked by Boeing.

Quoting ERAUgrad02 (Reply 5):
Well Boeing is listing 6-8 UFO 767's.

They're listing 9 so far for 2007. Booked in 2 separate weeks, 6 last week and another 3 a while ago.


Found this link. As mentioned in the first post of the topic Airbus ordered 25 A32S aircraft in 2005, they also took 15 options. Perhaps LAN will excercise her outstanding options.

And they have fully refurbed their existing older fleet! I like the way you're thinking. Always did surprise me that they didn't take the A332 (and retire the 763) after the A343 and the A320 family.

The following is a link to the full statement by LAN also available at www.lan.com

http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/070306/20070306006367.html?.v=1

They key statement in relation to their fleet intentions;

The proceeds of this increase will be used to finance LAN's fleet expansion program, resulting from the strong traffic growth in the markets where the Company operates. The new fleet expansion program includes the arrival of 5 long-haul passenger aircraft, 4 dedicated freighters and 15 Airbus A320 family aircraft. These aircraft will be delivered between 2008 and 2011, with list prices that total approximately US$1.8 billion.

It is my informed opinion that this order will take place in 3 stages;

1: The 4 dedicated Freighters are 763Fs ordered and listed as UFO on September 29, 2006. No engines were allocated to them for several months. They are now listed as GE powered, LANs preferred supplier for the model.

2: The 15 x A32X series will be partial conversions of their 15 options which they took in 2005 and booked as a new order. In addition to frames from their order of 25 booked as Manni linked though not yet delivered.

3: The 5 x "Long Haul Passenger aircraft" is the first public acknowledgement of their RFP. An announcement should be made within the next 2 months as to which model they select. The frames will be new build.

LAN are actually quite transparent when reporting to the SEC, have a history of ordering Boeing 767s as UFO and their press releases can lead to some confusion for reporters when they use a term such as the arrival.

For cargo planes LAN maybe will be the launch customer of the model in latin america. The order are 2 planes + 2 options and will be delivered in 2009 to cover routes from Santiago to Miami-Europe and in the next future start service to Asia (Shanghai Pudong), and Santiago-Europe non stop. Also de 5 long haul aircraft will be delivered between 2010 and 2011.

The single aisle aircraft (A320 family, includes the A318, A319 and A320, the A321 is not considered by LAN), will be delivered after 2008.

Maybe today the company at midday, makes an official announcement after the meeting with Boeing Commercial people here in Santiago.

Thank you for the excellent local insight RJ_Delta and I would very much like to be proved wrong in my assessment given what you have stated.

Please keep us informed if any news comes from the meeting between LAN and Boeing today.

I wonder if LAN wants the 762LRF? Or they could be adding A332Fs, which can fly farther then a 763F when only loaded to a 763F's payload.

So 777F? You noted the freighter could be "the launch customer for the model in LA" so that just leaves the 777F or 748F if it's Boeing.

By the way RJ_Delta, since you seem to have some inside knowledge, do you have any idea how many of the 767s have been refitted with Premium Business at this point? I've been unable to find this info elsewhere. I flew two flights on it last week and thought it was an excellent product.

So does this mean the A343 got 4 new orders from LA or am I mistaken?

No, 2 new orders only. LAN put 2 A340-300 orders on stand-by after receiving it's 4th A340. They will now take those two orders out of stand-by and convert 2 options they had to effective orders.

Stand by... do you mean deferment? If so, they deferred delivery of 2 A343 and now will take delivery of the deferred aircraft. Have these 2 deferred aircraft been built already? If so where are they, or who is operating them?

Thanks

According with the Information LAN Airlines has ordered 2 Boeing 777-200LRF +2 options (will be the launch customer in LA for the 777-200LRF), 6 767-300ER with options to change into 787 order, 6 A340-300 to increase the capacity to Europe and Oceania, the reason because LAN will order more A340 is because they can't wait for ever the certification of the ETOPS 207 and 330 min. and they need now increase the capacity from Chile, Argentina and Peru. Also 15 planes of the A320 family has ordered for delivery after 2008, to increase the regional routes in Chile, Perú and Argentina.

No, I mean stand-by, indefinite postponement for the 2 airplanes. The airframes have not been built yet.

103 Arcano : No, not the one of the british sight of a filthy Lima. The one they commited to promote Peru as compensation No, many people in the many flights I ta
104 SKY1 : I agree ...it sounds very strange. I doubt if it are new aircraft Airbus say nothing at all. Odd.
