 Smile LanChile's innaugural oneworld codeshare flight to Australia and New Zealand (LA801) touched down at Sydney's Kingsford Smith International Airport yesterday morning (3rd July at 09:17am) after having crossed the Southern Pacific from Santiago de Chile (SCL) to Auckland (AKL) and on to Sydney (SYD). Sydney Airport Corporation (SACO) received this maiden flight service with firetruck honours and a whole host of airport delegates to inspect the new addition to the airport.
It was an emotional and very happy moment for alot of Qantas and Sydney Airport staff of Chilean origin that were at the scene when the massive and shiny A340-313X (registered CC-CQA) was baptised by the airport fire brigade and also when they approached the cabin crew for a very friendly chat and received a whole range of airline presents. The bright, outgoing and bubbly cabin crew were just overwhelmed at the reception.  Laugh out loud
All went underway pretty well and SACO staff were impressed.  Big thumbs up
Alot of photos were taken by many people and myself-i will endeavour to put a few of my behind the scenes pictures on airliners.net just to mark this very special beginning of a properous flight future. LanChile has announced a whole week of celebrations at AKL and SYD (with giveaways to passengers and airport staff and traditional dancing at the gates) commemorating these new services.
