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.

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.

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?

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.

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."

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.

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.

Absolutely! LAN views the 787 as a "game changer" and plans to launch new routes with the 787s. Indeed, LAN's potential to launch new routes has grown tremendously not only due to the rapid increase in air traffic in South America, but also due to LAN's merger with TAM. LAN's Boeing 787 Project Director Justin Siegel recently gave an interview to ATW (http://atwonline.com/issue/october-2012) where he stated, "Many airlines are buying the 787 as a replacement aircraft. We're using it for growth." He also stated that, "Eventually, the 787 will be more used for flights to Europe...because that's where you get the most benefits."

Also, LAN continues to receive new B-767-316ERs and plans to operate the 763s as more 787s arrive. LAN currently has a fleet of 34 B763s. So far this year, LAN took delivery of 5 new B-767-316ERs:
CC-BDD
CC-BDE
CC-BDF
CC-BDG
CC-BDH
LAN plans to receive another 5 B-767-316ERs this year:
CC-BDI
CC-BDJ
CC-BDK
CC-BDL
CC-BDM
And will also receive 4 new B-767-316ERs next year.

Wow!!    I didn't know LAN was still receiving 763ERs. Do you know the financing terms? Short term lease which implies to cover 787 delays or are these long term leases/purchases? The later implies for expansion to keep 787s free for new routes.

LAN Airlines placed two separate orders for B-767-316ERs last year and exercised options, (LAN always has options). LAN obviously received preferential rates for the B-767-316ERs from Boeing due to the delays with the 787s. LAN is actually renewing its fleet of B767s. This year, LAN returned two older B763s to their lessors. LAN will use the new B-767-316ERs to increase frequencies on existing routes and will launch new routes with them in the very near-term. LAN has already started to increase frequencies into the U.S. from SCL, LIM and GYE with the B763s. Also, a certain number of B-767-316ERs will be deployed to LAN Colombia in order to increase capacity on existing routes and to launch new routes via BOG. LAN certainly has aggressive growth plans in the works. LAN's training facilities are operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week! LAN recently purchased 10 sets of blended winglets for the new B-767-316ERs.

LAN Perú recently inaugurated a new training center near its hub at the Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima. The new facility currently offers training on a CAE Airbus A320 full-flight simulator and will soon offer Boeing 767 full-flight simulator training. This is LATAM's third training center in South America. Last year, LAN greatly expanded its CAE training facilities in Santiago de Chile and plans to add a B-787 full-flight simulator next year.

They fly to LAX and SFO via LIM. I believe LAX is due to start seasonal non-stop service from SCL next year?

Actually, LAN will operate nonstop flights between SCL and LAX beginning this November. These seasonal flights will last through March 2013. Moreover, these seasonal flights will see the Boeing 787 as pointed out by SCL767.

That's great to see; I hope they'll go n/s to SFO when demand warrants it as well. Its great to see this airline open up new markets and pushing the envelope in developing their business in S.America.

Eventually all LAN operated flights to LAX and MAD will operate with the 787s. LATAM plans to open 4 new destinations within Europe by the end of 2014; most likely by LAN with the 787s.

LAN Perú operates the LIM-SFO route non-stop. That service is not operated by LAN Airlines. LAN Perú will launch a new route to the U.S. next year using the B767.

I understand the aircraft are probably part of the B787 delays but wouldn't it make sense to operate one type opposed to operating the B763 & B787 alongside one another...?

The 767-300ER passenger model works well for LAN on certain missions and they also have a 767-300F freighter fleet so they have operating synergies.

LAN hasn't publicly announced when 787 services will commence into LAX.  However, LAN will take delivery of its second B-787 in 10 days. The third B-787 will be delivered during December. LAN's Winter schedule to LAX will look like this:

LA600 SCL 22:15 LIM 00:15+1-01:10 LAX 07:05 Daily B763/B787
LA601 LAX 12:30 LIM 00:05+1-01:15 SCL 06:40 Daily B763/B787

LA2604 LIM 12:55 LAX 18:50 B763 6x weekly (Operated by LAN Perú)
LA2505 LAX 21:15 LIM 08:50+1 B763 6x weekly (Operated by LAN Perú)

Just like JFK, MIA will not receive 787 services for a while. The 787s will primarily replace the B763s and A343s on certain long-haul flights and will be utilized to launch new routes from LATAM's hubs in South America to destinations in Europe.

Also those flights on such a magnificant bird are like quick hop commutes. Especially SCL-EZE thats comparable to BWI-MIA on a good day or BWI-TPA, MCO or SRQ to name a few which again is a rather quick flight. I wonder if there are any 787 Dreamliner flights that are even shorter in time and distance? With any airline? Reminds me of my one and only Airbus flight from PHL to BWI, Wham bam thank you mam.

LAN Perú did not renew its operating permits with the DGAC for the LIM-BCN route. LAN Perú did renew its permits for LIM-BER, LIM-BRU, LIM-CDG, LIM-DUS, LIM-FCO, LIM-FRA, LIM-LHR, LIM-MAD, LIM-MUC, and LIM-MXP. Maybe LAN Perú will apply for the LIM-BCN route in the near-term, but IMO it would be great if LAN Perú operated LIM-FRA 3x weekly and LIM-LHR 4x weekly and LAN operated SCL-FCO 3x weekly, SCL-FRA 4x weekly and SCL-LHR 5x weekly. Just speculation on my part.

So they don't plan on operating LIM-BCN flights in the near future ? That's bad news ! On the other hand, LIM-LHR is long overdue.

If LATAM opens a route to JNB in the future, it would most likely operate via the GRU hub. Certain new long-haul routes will operate via LATAM's hubs at GRU and GIG.

LAN's historic order for 32 B-787s is the largest single order for widebody a/c ever made by a Latin American carrier. And yes, LAN has options to acquire additional B-787s.

Just out of curiosity, why are you so adamant that LAN should fly the 787 to JFK soon? Right now, international traffic at SCL is increasing rapidly due to the strong growth of the Chilean economy and many passengers want more non-stop flights to Europe because there are only three daily non-stop flights, two to MAD and one to CDG. PAX want LAN to open new non-stop flights between SCL and Europe because they are tired of flying via MAD and AF's airfares are very expensive. LAN simply wants to offer its customers new flights due to increasing demand. The 787 will enable LAN to bypass MAD and open new destinations within Europe; which many Chilean passengers will gladly appreciate!

I am not saying it should! LAN can do whatever they want to do but I am just want it to happen. I am not expecting things to go my way however. I thought the 787 would simply replace the 767 but I was partially wrong. I know that LAN wants to expand its European network because there is a demand for European flights. And because of that I have very little confidence that JFK will see that 787 until 2018 or later.

LAN has affiliates in five South American countries and TAM has affiliates in two South American countries. Traffic between South America and North America is continuing to experience robust growth. LAN is taking delivery of new B763s in order to increase its market-share on routes between both continents and to enable TAM to grow. For example, in the next two months LAN will launch two new routes into JFK. LAN will also launch daily non-stop service between MIA and GIG in January, thus taking over the route from TAM so that TAM can increase frequencies elsewhere.

That's your opinion and it's moot. You need to understand that LAN recently merged with TAM. Could LAN operate SCL-GIG-JFK with the 787s in the next two years? Absolutely! Another priority for LATAM is to increase its market-share on routes between South America and Europe via its hubs at BOG, GIG, GRU, LIM, and SCL. To increase flights into Australia and New Zealand and to open new routes to destinations in Africa, etc.

I am really happy to see LAN's 787s already flying across the South American skies. Especially LIM and SCL, my favorite city pairs after LAX-LIM of course! I must say, LAX-LIM-SCL is one of the most spoiled routes that LAN has, especially with the 767/A340 mix and soon the 787!

I am sure, that upon boarding, the 787 will be nice, but let's face it....it's a plane! Seats etc can only very so much. After-all it's just a few hours, what really gets me is the significance of the operation and the culmination of a huge effort.

I have had an opportunity to fly LAX-LIM-SCL in Business and Economy from the older 767s to the most recent 767s, the A340 in both classes and LAN never seems to disappoint. Crew can be a little hit-or-miss at times, but overall, I go non-stop or not at all...! I've yet to fly Premium Business or any of these 787 cabins, but soon, I will.

I have had a love-hate relationship with LAN and sometimes I must admit, it's because of a few sore thumbs, or even "pseudo-affiliates" that express themselves as if they were the marketing dept for LAN or giving a sort of wanna-be stockholder's meeting. For example, a few years back (2001? 2002?) , I shared ALOT of art-work with "affiliates" and eventually, my idea ended up on a plane - just that instead of reds and an "escudo" there was blue and an "estrella" - coincidence? I'd say too much!  

Regardless, I am very happy that LAN is growing, and that the 787 was first to fly in the Americas with them, like I said especially with LIM/SCL/EZE in the mix.

The poster continues to state that the 787 will never serve JFK, or when it does it'll be by 2018. I and another poster responded by saying that eventually they will be deployed to JFK, just not in the immediate future. Thus, his continual posts about never seeing LAN's 787 at JFK became a bit tiresome.

Actually the new B-767-316ERs feature the new Premium Business Class and the new Economy Class with the same IFE system as LAN's B-787s. So far this year, LAN took delivery of five new B-767-316ERs, (CC-BDD, CC-BDE, CC-BDF, CC-BDG, and CC-BDH). LAN plans to receive another five B-767-316ERs this year, (CC-BDI, CC-BDJ, CC-BDK, CC-BDL, CC-BDM), and will also receive 4 new B-767-316ERs next year. LAN Perú will receive four new B-767-316ERs in order to increase frequencies on certain routes, i.e. LIM-LAX, LIM-MIA, LIM-SFO, etc. and to launch new routes. LAN Perú will launch LIM-JFK 4x weekly on 05NOV12; which will complement LA's daily SCL-LIM-JFK service. Next year, LAN Perú will launch a new route to the U.S. with the B-767-316ER. LAN Perú will receive 6 new A319s to increase frequencies on regional and domestic routes, and in order to launch new domestic routes within Perú and as well as new regional routes.

Quoting SCL767 (Reply 63):
That's your opinion and it's moot. You need to understand that LAN recently merged with TAM. Could LAN operate SCL-GIG-JFK with the 787s in the next two years? Absolutely! Another priority for LATAM is
[quote=SCL767,reply=65]The poster continues to state that the 787 will never serve JFK, or when it does it'll be by 2018. I and another poster responded by saying that eventually they will be deployed to JFK, just not in the immediate future. Thus, his continual posts about never seeing LAN's 787 at JFK became a bit tiresome.

You kept questioning my confidence. I am not feeling confident at all about that. Whether JFK gets it in the near future is questionable IMO. I am sure JFK will see it a few years from now. Do not respond SCL767. I don't want to start something.

Quoting LanPeru (Reply 64):
I am really happy to see LAN's 787s already flying across the South American skies.

I used to like LAN... but yes, I agree to the rest of the post...

There is no discussion to be made when it is like this. Sad... In some other successful airlines, such "blind fanboy-ism" is actually prohibited if you're on the payroll.



When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !

Quoting RAGAZZO777 (Reply 6):
Do you know when LAN will deploy it on the SCL-LIM route ?

LAN will increase frequency on the SCL-LIM route to 9x daily when LAN deploys the 787 on the SCL-LIM route.

Here is LAN's second B-787, CC-BBB at KPAE. LAN plans on taking delivery of CC-BBB on 18OCT12. After CC-BBB arrives at SCL, LAN will increase the frequency of 787 operated flights on the SCL-EZE route to 22x weekly and will launch 787 services on the SCL-LIM route.

The Chilean Civil Aviation Authority, (DGAC) recently became the first Civil Aviation Authority in Latin America that has a trained team of inspectors to participate in the processes of certification and inspections of the Boeing 787 aircraft:
DGAC: PRIMERA EN SUDAMÈRICA EN CAPACITAR A INSPECTORES EN B-787
