Today LAN Airlines became the first carrier in the Americas to launch Boeing 787 services. This morning, LA455 operated SCL-EZE and LA456 is currently flying EZE-SCL. Initially, LAN will be operating 787 flights on the SCL-EZE and SCL-LIM routes for crew familiarization purposes. LAN will then deploy the 787s on routes to LAX and on the SCL-MAD-FRA route.

CC-BBA at Gate 4 at Buenos Aires-EZE:

Of course! It was a historic moment for both LAN and South American aviation since CC-BBA is the first 787 delivered to a carrier based in the Americas and this was the first 787 revenue flight operated within the Americas. The flight was absolutely thrilling and LAN's 787 is very impressive! Looking forward to flying on more 787 flights soon.

Congrats to LAN !!! Nice to see a South American carrier launch 787 services within the Americas. Do you know when LAN will deploy it on the SCL-LIM route ?

In my opinion, I see LAN flying the most exciting new routes with the 787. Of all the airlines who have received them, I see them launching the greatest number of *new* long haul routes with the type.

I do realize the initial flights will be crew familiarization.    But when LAN has ETOPS 220...    I expect a burst of new routes. Where? Let the a.net speculation begin.

Quoting SCL767 (Thread starter):
LAX and on the SCL-MAD-FRA route.

I would expect new routes once the 787 has matured in LAN's fleet. For example, SCL-FRA *direct*.    Perhaps with a later line number, but that is one potential new route.

The 787s will also be deployed on the LIM-MAD and GYE-MAD routes. By the end of 2014, LAN will have 12 B-787-8s in the fleet.

LAN released a brief synopsis of the 787 flights today. LAN plans to increase the frequency of 787 operated flights on the SCL-EZE route this week:

Also, LAN will operate 22 weekly flights between SCL and EZE. The operations will made by LAN crew assisted with Boeing pilots during the next two weeks. By the mid October the company expects the reception of its second B787.

Given the 788 has the range, why not fly from SCL direct to LAX? The same could be said for SFO. Is there a ton of connecting traffic at LIM that justifies the stop?

Quoting SonomaFlyer (Reply 14):

Yes, LIM is a major hub for LAN. LA600/LA601 operates daily and LA2604/LA2605 will soon increase to 6x weekly. Currently, LAN Airlines is the only LATAM affiliate carrier that operates the 787.

LA600: SCL-LIM-LAX daily
LA601: LAX-LIM-SCL daily

LA2604: LIM-LAX increases to 6x weekly (operated by LAN Perú)
LA2605: LAX-LIM increases to 6x weekly (operated by LAN Perú)

Quoting SonomaFlyer (Reply 14):

LAN will deploy the 787 on LA602/LA603 3x weekly. The SCL-LAX route operates on a seasonal basis from December through March.

LA602: SCL-LAX 3x weekly
LA603: LAX-SCL 3x weekly

The 763 HAS the range to fly to LAX non-stop from SCL, but for some reason LAN only offers non-stop flights during the southern summer season.

Quoting SonomaFlyer (Reply 14):

LIM is LAN's main hub for North American flights, not to mention the fact that LIM has more demand for flights to North America than SCL. LAN knows this.

Well read my signature right now. "I am not expecting JFK to get the 787 as I am expecting LAN to put 787's on NEW routes. Meanwhile JFK will keep seeing the 767-300ER."
Whatever is in quotes is what I think will happen based on my confidence.

Initially, LAN will deploy the 787s on existing long-haul routes, i.e. SCL-LIM-LAX and SCL-MAD-FRA. However, for the NS 2013 season, the A343s are now scheduled to operate the SCL-AKL-SYD and SCL-LIM-LAX routes. After receiving the fifth 787 next year, LAN may launch new long-haul route(s) with the 787s. LAN has shown an interest in launching long-haul flights to BCN, FCO and LHR.

That is a duplicate flight in the GDS. LAN Perú now operates the LIM-GYE route daily with the B763 instead of LAN Ecuador. This is due to recent operational changes made by LAN Ecuador on the GYE-JFK route. LAN Ecuador will increase frequency on the GYE-JFK route to 9x weekly starting on 05OCT12 and will further increase frequency on the route to 11x weekly starting on 03DEC12. LAN is currently reprogramming certain flights on the SCL-EZE route as it plans to increase the frequency of 787 operated flights on the SCL-EZE route to 22x weekly very soon.

The 787s will also be deployed on the LIM-MAD and GYE-MAD routes.

I did not mean to imply that LAN wouldn't use the 787s on existing routes. I simply see them launching more new long haul routes that would be 'unique.' Of course they will cut costs on existing flights. However, many of the new flights will not just be 'aircraft replacement' but new routes. Some will just be new frequencies, but I see LAN having tremendous potential for new routes.

And there is where the excitement is.    Give LAN a year to familiarize itself with the 787 and then I see opportunity!

The 787 hasn't been deployed to LIM as yet. The first 787 is currently deployed only on the SCL-EZE route and LAN will soon increase the frequency of 787 operated flights on the SCL-EZE route to 22x weekly. When LAN receives its second 787 CC-BBB in a couple weeks, LAN will launch 787 services on the SCL-LIM route.
