TAM (F100s) - Nice all-coach cabins with leather seats, and very good inflight service. Airplanes looked well-maintained. Safety practices worried me a little. On all flights, the seat-belt sign went off literally the minute the wheels left the ground, and everyone decided to go for a stroll. Nobody ever sat down even when we went through some rough turbulence over the Andes, nor did the flight attendants stop service. I was just waiting for something (or someone) to go airborne.

LAN Chile (737) - One of my favorites. Nice all-coach 737 cabins with modern, seats, full meal service on our short (2-hr) flight. Safety practices seemed on a par with North American carriers.

Varig (737, MD-11) - Far and away my favorite. Excellent service throughout, one of the few times I've actually turned down more food! Like LAN, safety practices seemed identical to U.S. Friendly, professional crews, and plenty of Guarana (Brazilian soft drink..yum!)

Lloyd Aereo Boliviano -LAB (727-200) - Ugh! I doubt the airplane I was on even still exists! Each row of seats was a different design, but I recognized seat covers from Continental and Northwest on there. First class seats looked like they had purple sheets over them! The crew was very nice, though, but I don't remember the meal service since it was three years ago. I was more concerned with landing in one piece anyway.

Lan Chile 767-300 x3 - much worse than I expected. Food awful

Lan Peru 737-200 x2 - very good flights - not surprising as one was their very first flight since their shutdown so the crew went all out to make us, the passengers, happy to be flying with them...

Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you long to return

Avianca, Varig, Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano (LAB Airlines), TAM Mercosur, Aces, Aerosur, Aerolíneas Argentinas. Exitrowaisle, I'm sure the LAB plane you flew on is still in operation, with plenty of help from duct tape, bailing wire, etc. Just yesterday I saw a Lloyd 727-200 with winglets at MIA. How would you like to fly from Miami all the way to Bolivia on a worn out 727? Not me, thanks. To give them some credit, they do have at least 1 (maybe 2) A310-300's and they let me ride in the cockpit from VVI to SLC!
