First LAN Aircraft In Oneworld Special Livery

In the next two weeks (approx) LAN Airlines will show its first aircraft with a LAN-Oneworld special livery. The aircraft is a LAN Argentina A320 LV-BFO and it was painted here in Santiago during the maintenance check and retrofit program.

The reason to select a LAN Argentina plane as its first logojet, is because LAN wants to make the difference from Aerolineas Argentinas after the introduction of the A320 LV-BNZ (newest AR plane).The idea (for LAN Argentina) is: although both carrier will operate a similar aircraft, the LAN Argentina product is superior than Aerolíneas because LAN Argentina is part of a global alliance and offer a high quality product as a world class airline.

Also Probably LAN is considering to paint other aircraft including one plane in LAN Chile.

wow nice this is exciting; I'm assuming that the picture in the link isn't the finished product though... it would be nice to see the JAL-oneworld livery on a LAN 767!

Excellent initiative by LAN. Interesting that they don´t use the JAL oneworld logo.

PS: RJ-Delta, nice to find "En vivo desde SCL" again.

I expect the same or other modification on the fuselage during the next two week.

Yes it could be nice to see a LAN aircraft with the same JAL oneworld logo.

Yes this will be the new site of "En vivo desde SCL" after the downtime of the original site in AeropuertosArg.

Finally! LAN is so reluctant when it comes to special schemes... I think I haven't seen one... ever!

They don't even paint winglets for god sake!

Although pretty boring design, nothing like JL shown above.

It seems a bit strange to have oneworld written down the side of the plane and a star on the tail  Smile

The final scheme add the tails of the Oneworld members. Actually the LV-BFO is flying initially within domestic routes in Argentina but is probably that the LV-BFO will moved to EZE to make international flights to SCL.

LAN is considering to paint another A32S with CC- registration with the Oneworld special livery.

Saludos,

RJ_Delta.

PD: From April 1st. LAN Argentina is flying to Santiago with two flights per day, excepting Wednesday and Saturday where LAN Argentina operates a single flight.

How it LAN dealing with these restrictions? I mean, LAN faces two major challenges in Argentina: The dual hub AEP (dom) - EZE (intl) and the LV- registration for the aircrafts.
I don't see why LAN would use a LV- registered aircraft for a route that can be done by LAN (Chile) with a more common CC- registered aircraft.

It's illegal to fly commercial/regular routes with foreign registered aircraft and/or foreign crew.

I know it's not allowed. What i was refering to is, why let LAN Argentina fly EZE-SCL when they don't have lots of LV- planes/crews if LAN Chile can fly SCL-EZE with a CC- aircraft and save LAN Argentina for ops in Argentina (not involving Chile, Peru or Ecuador)?

It's not even "why" but "how" they are dealing with it.

Mainly because the company needs "dollarized" (international) fares, that's the main reason why COR-LIM was put on the table for 4M and not LP. Remember that domestic fares in Argentina are in pesos and band-limited by the government, therefore a full plane does not equal profit in domestic routes.

Still, I don't think too many people know exactly what OneWorld is. I mean, regular passengers, not aviation enthusiasts.

Cool! Does anybody know its routing for the next few days? Any chance it might be flying LA4216 on 14 Apr or LA4217 on 15 Apr?

To be honest I expected better from LA. I am not a huge fan of the OneWorld livery that they chose. With they great livery they possess, something a little more professional could have been done.
As stated before not many people know/care about what OneWorld is exactly. It makes the aircraft look 'low cost'.

During those days the LV-BFO will be moved to EZE to make Ezeiza-Santiago route.

I saw BFO today at AEP while I was driving through Lugones Ave. It looks like a gorgeous and powerful... bowl. Big grin
