It seems Southern Winds Lineas Areas, the Argentine commuter airline, is likely to lease a 777-200 to start it's first international route, with daily Miami-Cordoba flights. The airline has not ruled out the 767-300ER or the A330-200/300. Southern Winds hopes to have it's MIA-COR service ready by December.

Does it seem strange to anyone else that an airline with only CRJs and Dash 8s is jumping up to the 777? What is the reason they are adding so much capacity?

How about "where is the proof?"



It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

They will be assuming the delivery slot for the Lauda Air 777  Smile

I hear the Argentinian economy is really booming nowadays - should be a cinch to finance the deal.

now we need to get crossair to comit to some 777's... Well how common is it that a comuter airline orders w/b aircraft. All I know of is Piedmont with their 762's.

I also believe Air Tran has serious plans to order 40 747-400LRs with options for 20 more, and 20 A380s. Also, they are retiring all 717s and replacing them with DC-9s.

One more thing, Northwest hates old planes.

Sheesh, if that happens, then who will maintain the plane as I dont think no Argentinian airline has any 777 a/c so that leads me to believe that there isnt any 777 engineers in Argentina.


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Actually Southern Winds IS looking on wide-bodies for long-haul services - the mentioned 772, 763 and A332. The got the traffic rights for Cordoba-Miami just recently and when you look on the economical situation of Argentina´´s two largest carriers - LAPA and Aerolineas it is the right move as the other carriers had to cut back their international network. BTW, Southern Winds seems to be interested in the CRJ700, too.

Southern Winds announced about a month ago plans to fly Miami-Cordoba. They were just recently granted permission. What I stupidly forgot to mention is that the plane would be LEASED, not purchased. The info also appears in the latest Airways.

Flight Int'l carried the news item last week. Should be easy to check.

B747-400

First the topic was senseless...
then Flight International and Airways do not have a clue...

We can count us happy we have you to tell the rest of us what makes sense and what doesn't. Yes, punish intruders with your intelligent and brilliant remarks...

Il75,

Are you referring to me or B747-437B. If it was me, I think rumors like this without any reliable source are laughable.

But since you claim you know it all, I guess I may be wrong?

Also, one time we heard on our local news station that a DL 747-400 had an emergency landing on February 11th in San Francisco.

See these things I'm talking about?

Sorry... I posted that in a rush...
No, I do not know a thing... I grew tired of the scorning. But I should have kept my mouth shut.

In any case:
MAH4546s posting is allright. He forwards some information earlier published in an official website and two branch publications.
If it makes business sense or not, and if it is even possible to expand like that could be a matter of discussion.
B747-400s and your comment do not contribute to the discussion. Nor do I with this posting and I apologize again.

Erico
