: LOL!!! "I thought it was self-explanatory"
sounds like "I didn't know you were so stupid!"
. Are you surprised about SCL EZE
fares? Lan's "Last minute fares" to EZE
this week: US$89! and yes, there is a lot of Chileans going to BsAs after Argentine devaluation. Before, Argentina was so expensive for us! About TAM you are right, this is why I said JJ
does not fly to SCL
. And frequencies? in high season, I've counted up to 20 both narrow and widebodies! even Sky charters to EZE
: Vina del Mar uses SCL
airport. Since it's located next to the new highway Santiago-Valparaiso/Vina, going from the airport to vina takes 45 mins - 1 hour (@120kms/hr allowed), so it's much easier to use SCL
instead of Torquemada (KNA) airport. Torquemada was daily used by Ladeco in the early 90s (BAC111s), which was good for vinamarinos since they made immi controls in Vina and were on transit passengers in SCL
for international flights. Now, KNA is used mostly for private aviation. And coming from Mendoza takes about 5 hours. Think that if you come with the family for vacations, is better just drive: flying takes 30 mins to the airport, 2 hours before departure, 50 mins of flight and 20 minutes of immigration... you don't save much time!
: Are you sure about RG
website still announce it yesterday, but not today. It was grate since sometimes they used MD11s.
will not drop Lan alliance; they will add a 4th frequency this year. Although you are right about QF
wanting to resume direct flights to EZE
: After a few seasons, Argentines have come back to Vina, specially from Mendoza, and you are right, the road is wonderful. Even this year Argentina won the Festival de Vina and weird thing! all Chileans cheered the guy!!! beautiful song of Heredia, BTW.
