We have discussed and analized LAN's new destinations in North America. Where is Europe at all this?. Does BA have a plan to return to places like BOG or SCL? Please comment.

Quoting Eastern023 (Thread starter):

LAN will acquire 5 more A-340s due to the delay of the 787s. LAN Perú S.A. and LAN Ecuador will deploy the A-340s on the MAD route; instead of using the current 763s. Also, LAN Chile might possibly split the SCL-MAD-FRA flight, and operate SCL-MAD and SCL-FRA as non-stop flights. LAN has also made some assertions that they will fly to CDG and LHR in the future.

... I think LIM-FRA operated by Lan Peru could work. Just take a look at KL's success in the AMS-LIM route; the place of origin of KL's passengers to LIM are not the Netherlands, KL connects traffic from all over Europe through AMS.

So I do think LA could be able to compete not only with KL but also with LH. I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates connecting in CCS with TA if flying from Germany to Peru (LH has an agreement with TA for the FRA-LIM route). Nothing against TA, I think it's a great airline... it's just that CCS sucks.

Perhaps LA could start with a LIM-MAD-FRA and see what happens...

LAN Perú S.A. will most likely not fly to FRA. LAN uses Barajas as its "European hub" since LAN codeshares with IBERIA. KLM does well with Cargo on their South American routes.

The November issues of Airline Business has an interview with Enrique Cueto.

In the interview Senor Cueto states LA has no additional plans for Europe and is satisfied with existent MAD service and the tag flight to FRA while Iberia provides good feed to markets like London, Paris, and Milan via MAD.

Long term LA's will be to further develop Americas network including new IAD service and with particularly emphasis on building Lima as a "nerve center of the network".
Basically more Americas network density as Ecuador, Argentina, and Peru operations grow and a desire to see a Colombian subsidiary one day. He statest these markets are "really profitable".

The only new longhaul markets he mentioned (outside of IAD) is one day to go trans-Pacific to either Japan or China but that will have to wait till 2011-2013 as the 787 fleet grows.

Incorrect, once LAN receives the 787s they will fly to other European destinations. LAN's CEO, Enrique Cueto, has recently stated that LAN will expand in Europe. Sorry in Spanish:
"A medida que los restantes A340 lleguen a la compañía, LAN podrá estar en condiciones de abrir nuevos destinos que estaban previstos para iniciarse con el B787, especialmente en Europa como Londres Heathrow."

Incorrect,

 Confused How can you state something is incorrect? I'm telling you what is printed and what Mr Cueto said in a 4 page interview.

What he might have said someplace else is different, but in this interview from the November edition of Airline Business Mr. Cueto stated he was happy with Europe as it stood operatng to MAD and using Iberia for onward connections with specific mention to London, Paris and Milan.

If Mr Cueto says different things in different places that is possible, but your assertion that its "incorrect" is a ridiculous assertion, unless if you know the magazine has misprinted his comments from the interview.

The possibility of LH FRA-LIM might be feasible if TACA enters to Star Alliance later.
Both LH and TA have signed a memorandum of understanding last year and the mentioned route is a strong possibility if TA would consolidate their intentions in order to join Star Alliance in the near future.

LAN would like to expand to other cities in Europe in the future. Passenger connections at MAD are plentiful; however, LAN wants to increase its cargo revenues as well.

I guess based in the postings BA has not intentions to return to places like SCL. They will wait until LA opens the route and slap their code-sare flight number on it.

Is Virgin Atalntic thinking about expansion work in Latin America?

Correct, BA is welcome to fly to SCL at anytime, and when LA finally flies to LHR, BA will codeshare with LA. KL and LH both left SCL a while back, and now Swiss flies the route for LH. Swiss operates ZRH-GRU-SCL-GRU-ZRH daily. AF flies CDG-SCL-CDG daily, and it is one of their best performers.

Initially the only Asian route for LAN Cargo will be Shanghai Pudong.

And for this moment LAN has no intention to modified its route to FRA.

That's great, as LA enjoys a high LF on the route.

Correct. What the European alliances such as LH/LX and AF/KL is that they have divvied up the South American markets in a way such that one airline usually flies to one city and the other code-shares. For instance, it makes little sense for LH and KL to serve SCL when they can feed passengers on LX or AF through alliances. Same with why LH and AF serve EZE and CCS and not KL and LX. GRU is one exception to this just because of it being the largest city in South America.

I have also heard that LH currently lacks the equipment to operate this route. The obvious whole in the Chile-Europe market that has always left me confused is BA. Does LAN and IBERIA route passengers via the UK and Chile through Madrid, mostly?

On a side note, how are the Oceania routes on LAN doing? Does the route from AKL to SYD or from Easter Island to PPT enjoy good load factors? If you notice, LAN likes to do the "tag-on" routes like SCL-JFK-YYZ or SCL-LIM-JFK, etc. I guess it works well for connections and with their current fleet inventory/allocation.



next flights: msp-phx-slc, msp-mdw, ord-sju, sju-dfw-ord, msp-dfw, dfw-phl, phl-msp, jfk-icn, icn-hkg-bkk-cdg

Yes, the SCL-AKL-SYD route is one of LAN's best performing routes. LAN flies SCL-IPC-PPT 2x weekly and SCL-IPC 5x weekly. Since they are the only carrier to operate dedicated flights to IPC, yields are strong on the route.

I totally agreed with.
Fares to Easter Island usually start at $800+ from Santiago de Chile.

With Air France's nonstop CDG -Santiago service by 777's, I am surprised doesn't fly to CDG with its own A340's.

The rout to AKL and SYD is one ot the most profitable route for LAN. Also the route to IPC and PPT has excelent LF too.

LAN? Currently LAN hasn't more aircrafts to starts new longhaul destinations specially in Europe. Today and until June 2009 LAN will have only 4 A340 in service because the retrofit program. Maybe in the near future when LAN add more planes the company will increase its network to Europe.

Essentially yes. I've been that way on three occasions. Duration 18-19 hours. Gone are the days of departing LON, connecting in AMS (great route.. many stops!) or even longer ago via CCS. I was thinking back to the ways my relatives have done the route.. JFK and MIA also were connecting points in the past.

In my opinion the best current route to SCL though is on AF via CDG, or alternatively with TAM via GRU. Both provide for shorter durations than via MAD, on quality airlines.

When will Air Comet exit South America? I still see their 332s and 343s almost daily in UIO and LIM. By the way where else do they fly to in South America?

I must say , i never understood why they have stopped flights to Paris.

In the past they flew to Orly with 707s and latter with DC10s. , and at that time Chile was not a strong country.Now that this country has experienced a spectacular economic boom , LA doesn't fly to Paris anymore ! Very strange.......

If i am not mistaken , they never flew to London.The sole stations in Europe were FRA , MAD and ORY.

Hope they will resume flights to CDG before receiving 787s.

Well, you were lucky to fly in CC-CQC, the first A340 to be fitted with their new interiors. It was its first flight after it spent over a month in DUB for the retrofit.
