This was my desire last year when I went to Argentina. Speaking with one of the commercial team of LADE, told me that B707 is used only in routes with great demmand of people (remember that LADE flies to remote airports) and LADE put it without any advice. At these moments, in the web page there aren´t any route operated with an 707.

Sorry for not to help you. If you can get to fly in a 707, please make some photos and publish it in thiw web page.

If you want to fly in a 707, I don´t know if you not agree but Saha Air of Iran flies daily flights from THR to DXB.

Hello!

Flying the Lade 707 isn't all that difficult... once you arrive to Buenos Aires you should call Lade: 0810-810-LADE(5233) or 5129-9000, they have very helpful staff and they will let you know the 707's schedule. Last time I checked, the 707 was flying between El Palomar, Bariloche and Calafate, and if I'm not mistaken, they had also scheduled a few runs to Rio Gallegos and Ushuaia.

Roundtrip tickets came to about 500 pesos (about 170 U$S) betweel Palomar and Bariloche. The flights, however, aren't daily... they are opertaed about 2 or 3 times a week and there is a huge demand for them, so you should call well beforehand!

I imagine it must be a great experience to fly on the last commercial 707 in the world!  Smile enjoy it!

Hi, this is me again! you made me wonder about LADE so I went to their web site www.lade.com.ar and they show the following schedules:

On sundays:

Palomar-BRC-USH-BRC-Palomar
Dep Palomar at 8:30, returning at 20:30

On thursdays:

Palomar-BRC-FTE-BRC-Palomar
Dep. Palomar 8:30, ret 18:50

There is also a flight on fridays that runs Bs.As-CRD-RGL-USH-RGL-CRD-Bs.As. but my PC wouldn't load the page... :p

Not sure about the prices though...

Tundra 767...I think the site is just a little confusing. However, I too was able to find several 707 flights on the on-line schedule. I wish you the best of luck and should probably warn you that these types of operations are never 100% guaranteed. Not to degrade LADE, but operations of this nature are always subject to a/c swaps, cancellations and other unexpected glitches. It is my suggestion that you "camp" yourself down there for a few days so that you increase your chances substantially. My last 707 ride was around 1984 from MIA to Puerto Plata on a Dominicana 707 (HI-442) and have been trying to fly one since!
