Why be in a hurry if there is no place to go?




SCL-IPC (Easter Island)
LAN Chili
Date: 24/12/08
Class: D
Seat: 2L
Dep: 09:10
Arrival: 12:50
Flight time: 4:40

It has always been a dream of mine to go to Easter Island. Ever since I had heard it was (one of) the remotest airport(s) in the world. Only one airline services this island and that is the airline of its mother country Chili: LAN. The nearest airport is approximately 2431 miles from here. Makes me wonder what a 2 engined propeller plane is doing at the airport...  Smile

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/349073529.jpg

I had to leave Santiago early. The big disadvantage of being on an old paper RTW ticket is that you are often unable to check in online. Check in with LAN is notoriously chaotic, even at their home airport. To avoid all this I tried to have my ticket changed to an e-ticket. That was too difficult and after talking to LAN, LAN, BA-MRU, BA-USA and BA-RTW-USA desk I decided too much could go wrong. Paper it would remain.

Upon arrival at the airport my worst fears materialized. Queues longer than I had ever seen before and no dedicated business or first check in. They had several dedicated staff travel desks, but not a business one. Turns out you just have to talk to one of the guys that are walking around and they will help you jump the queue. Silly system though. I wonder if there were business class passengers unaware of this system in line...

So all in all check in went smoothly. After 10 minutes I was on my way to the Domestic Terminal. The IPC flight can be either just IPC or onwards to Papeete. If the latter is the case the flight will board from both terminals. That is why it is at the end of the Domestic (and thus also the end of the International) Terminal. This time the flight would go SCL-IPC and back.



Santiago airport is very, very boring. At the domestic terminal there is no lounge. Best place to hang out is behind the Starbucks where the good seats are. Try and get one there if you have a long wait.



For the rest there is not much to do. You can do some decent spotting, but since you are the domestic terminal you will see LAN, LAN and more LAN. Seeing how you guys like planes, here are some shots.

Apparently an MD11 is the biggest they get












The view of my own plane to IPC (a 767) was not great. I managed only a few shots. I did notice how spotless almost all LAN planes look. These guys take some serious care of their hardware. I like that.

Also I saw this strange 737 with no noticeable markings (or windows). Did the CIA resume their flights or is there a less 'conspiracy theory explanation'? Who knows?

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348939866.jpg

The only other airline I saw
http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348939774.jpg

At this airport too there was the same VIP lounge as at PMC. Maybe if you do a lot of domestic travel in Chili it is worth looking into ways to get access, although they do not look extremely inviting, I must say.

Lower level departure area
http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348939761.jpg

Boarding started exactly on time. So far my experiences are pretty good with LAN. I was first in line, hoping to get some pristine shots of the cabin. Unfortunately everybody was on board quicker that I could get my camera out but still I managed some detailed shots of the cabin.

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348939956.jpg







Economy




The seats are excellent. The best Business Class seat I have ever experienced. The only advantage BA has is that their layout gives you much more privacy. The LAN seat itself is much more comfortable, especially in fully flat mode. The only problem is that you cannot adjust your seat when the tray table is out...

The video screens are enormous and the selection is not half bad either.
http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348939981.jpg



Also there is a very good power socket. How come BA cannot think of something this logical?


The only minus was that the little 'glove compartment' on the bottom of the seat in front of me was broken and kept falling. I put my stuff in there (at the request of the FA) but had to stop it from opening and the same stuff falling out during take off.



http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348940062.jpg

Before take off the LAN crew always changes in to different attire. This is them inspecting the cabin and obviously the strange man with the camera...

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348940040.jpg

What they should have been eyeballing is the passenger who put his seat in fully flat mode during takeoff. He was asleep before the wheels left the ground. Ah well, gave me a chance to show the seat in fully flat position.

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348940097.jpg

Takeoff from SCL is spectacular to say the least. Unfortunately we headed away from the Andes in the direction of the Pacific. Still managed some nice shots...

Although Easter Island is the most remote airport in the world it's still only a short 4,5 hour flight. They menu was very unimpressive. If LAN fails me on one point (so far) it is their food.

The menu


The very boring and bland 'Fresh Omelette (?)'


The unanounced sandwiches. They were stale and tasteless.


Between the Omelette  Smile and the sandwiches I managed a good 3 hours sleep. I wasn't tired but the seat really was that comfortable. Nice blanket and nice pillows. Unfortunately I failed to take a picture.

Decent into IPC was impressive. There were some very nice cloud formations.


The first look at the island exposed a more rugged coastline than I expected.


The runway is (like most of you will know) also used as a back up for space shuttle landings. I was expecting all kinds of special stations but nothing. Only a small NASA center somewhere near the airport. We taxied to what could conceivably be called an airport and disembarked to the tarmac. Bo buses, nobody to tell us where to go: complete freedom to walk around.



http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348940250.jpg

The plane comes to its right here and I have proof!  Smile

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348940231.jpg


The airport is (of course) very small. There is an actual belt...


I had only carry on, so I was outside in no time. My host for the next 4 days had mistakenly assumed I was on the night flight but since everybody know everybody here that was soon sorted. I was taken on a quick tour of the 'town' by the assistant of the owner of the cabin I stay in. She is the living proof you can take a girl out of New York but you can not take New York out of a girl... She is fantastic but still on NYC energy.  Smile

Easter Island is a strange place. Unlike anything I have ever seen before. When I was here 2 days I was so bored that I changed my flight out to 1 day earlier. I more or less regret that now... Easter Island will grow on you, but you need to un-haste first. The people are fantastic and the scenery is very varied for such a small island.

http://pic40.picturetrail.com/VOL359/11064950/21261595/348940346.jpg

Although the French restaurant at the harbour (La Taverne du Pecheur) comes highly recommended by some I find the reputation to be very undeserved. Honestly the worst food I ever tasted and the crème brulee should be reason enough to throw the arrogant prick who owns the place of the island.







The big surprise was the only Japanese 'restaurant' on the island Izakaya Kotaro. It is run by a Chilean guy who was trained in Japan for 10 years. His sushi is good, his other food to die for. You can look it up at www.izakayakotaro.blogspot.com. Cool place!

The new love of my life!

Tomorrow I leave for LAX via SCL and Lima. A long travel day of 20 hours or more. I hope my flight out of IPC isn't delayed since I have less than 2 hours to transfer. I will keep you informed in my next TR.

As always: feedback is very much appreciated. I hope you enjoyed the detailed report on LAN Business and the pictures of Easter Island. Thanks for reading!

Hi Henkybaby,

the pics from the island are fabulous! LAN seems to offer a good product upfront, but food lacks on your flight. Such a shame. On the other hand, my (Y class) flight this year from MAD to FRA provided a very good tray with fresh food (LA A340). I was surprised by the good quality. So, I really think that this was bad luck, just for you. And LA can, or will do, better on other flights?!

Happy further travels! En de beste wensen voor 2009  Wink

I thought the same thing. It could be so good but just the thought of the meal I had there makes me gag a little.

Unfortunately no. The food wasn't bad but nothing special either. They did have some steak and cheese sandwiches that were very good, but that is the national food of Chile.

I must say: I never understood peoples enthusiasm for airline food at all. Although I am a very regular J and F customer I never found the food to match even a mediocre restaurant at ground level. As any expert can tell you: food just tastes different at altitude and loses much of its splendor. I do hotel reviews professionally sometimes so I do know my stuff, but I just decided airline food is never going to do it for me...

Very nice report Henkybaby

The LAN business class seat looked very comfortable, though i have always thought that this so called "glove compartment" was the place where you have to put the feet in when the seat is fully flat.

By looking at the overhead bins the 767 was one of the more recently delivered. Even though the entire 767 fleet have recived new interiors, the newer planes have the T7 style overhead bins, while the older ones have a "new and improved" version of the old 767 bin.

The food actually looked quite nice. Though i must agree on that the menu seemed kinda boring, it seem pretty bad thet they only have one choice of entree for a 4h 30m flight.

I really enjoyed the pics. The pics of the cabin were great, aswell as the easter island. What kind of lense were you usine for the shots of the cabin and tarmac? To me it looked like some kind of wide-angle lens.

No. QF does not fly PPT and besides the rules of the RTW would not allow backtracking.

I'm not familiar with RTW rules, although QF codeshares on TN metal out of PPT to LAX, AKL and SYD.

Is that RTW rules do not allow to take codeshares on carriers outside the alliance?

Not the 'regular' OW RTW. You can do a OW Explorer that will allow you to take codeshares but does not allow for any backtracking at all and is based on miles flown instead of continents visited.

Quoting HeartDoc (Reply 17):

I carry a Nikon D70s and a D80. I have the Nikon 18-200VR, the Sigma 11-16 (wonderful lens!) and the Nikon 10.5 Fisheye. I bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 the other day because my Casio Exilem broke (shitty camera anyways) and it is terrific! I also carry a Vanguard carbon tripod for the night shots.

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 20):

I am on a RTW so I have no idea of the prices. What I do know is you can get some really good package deals from US and Europe. If you buy Y and they have availability I heard you can upgrade for as little as $500 at check in.

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 20):
What was the loading like on your flight?

J - 100% (return 90%)
Y I would have to guess about 70%

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 20):
Apart from your flight & the Merlin was there anything else on the ramp?

No, nothing. And there also never is. Makes you wonder why they set up three lighted positions. Of course it is a back up airfield for the Space Shuttle.

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 20):
What was the reg of the all white 737 as the photo isn't very clear! Did you ever find out who operated/owned it?

Nope. The best I can make out is something like SC-39M or something. All white 737s are linked to prisoner transports. The only other all white references I found are talking about private charters but they would have windows I guess.

Hi Henkybaby,

Great report, really enjoyed the pictures, nice ones from the terminal of the lovely planes  Smile, great cabin shots, those seats look pretty decent as does the legroom + finally, great shots of the island, sure looks and interesting place to visit.

Quoting Henkybaby (Thread starter):
no dedicated business or first check in. They had several dedicated staff travel desks, but not a business one. Turns out you just have to talk to one of the guys that are walking around and they will help you jump the queue. Silly system though. I wonder if there were business class passengers unaware of this system in line...

- Interesting there is no J check-in, not every J passenger would seek out some form f queue jumping.

Quoting Henkybaby (Thread starter):
Santiago airport is very, very boring. At the domestic terminal there is no lounge

- Odd, I would have assumed LAN would have provided one to keep their FF travels happy.

Quoting Henkybaby (Thread starter):
What they should have been eyeballing is the passenger who put his seat in fully flat mode during takeoff. He was asleep before the wheels left the ground

- Did they really allow this? - amazing!

Quoting Henkybaby (Thread starter):
The very boring and bland 'Fresh Omelette (?)'

- Looks quite bland.

Regards

Mark

What a strange, mysterious place that hasn't been spoiled by commercial tourism. Kind of nice to see some shots from the island itself rather than just the flight to it and the airport.

I'd like to visit it one day.

Before take off the LAN crew always changes in to different attire. This is them inspecting the cabin and obviously the strange man with the camera...

Isn't it policy to stand in the cabin like that during the safety vid?

25 Buck3y3nut : A great trip report. Your pictures are truly stunning. How did you manage to get the widescreen panoramic views? I've always kinda taken pictures one-
26 Henkybaby : Use a wide angle (I use 11mm) and then cut of the top and bottom. Far easier than stitching in Photoshop. Takes me 1 minute with Adobe Lightroom (gre
