Lan Chile With MD-11

Sat Nov 17, 2001 9:13 am

Hi:

Lan Chile has said that is possible that the company is planning to add 2 MD-11 Freighter in wet lease for Lan Chile. The 2 planes would replace the 2 Boeing 747-200F leased from Atlas Air.

I wasnt aware that LAN Chile leased 2 742F's. They already have 3 763F's. Why add the MD-11F?

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Yes, is very strange becvause Lan Chile has received recently two newest Boeing 767-300ER. But that its probable for increasing the offer temporaly. Also it's possible that Lan Chile Cargo uses the MD-11 for resume the routes to Paris every Wednesday.
In relation of the 747-200F, their are not painted with the Lan Chile livery and they still flying with Atlas Air colours.

Best Regards,

It's true - the MD11Fs are coming from Gemini. They carry considerably more cargo over considerably further distances than the 767F.
