Hi Hardi, you are on O GLOBO today... they copy your comment on the episode concerning to the "passports seized by Federal Police".

Some corrections:

SCL-GRU via GIG is the night flight
SCL 1500 GIG 2010 2100 GRU 2200 2240 SCL 0150

SCL-GRU 0130 is non-stop

SCL-GRU 6x weekly is the afternoon 763 flight (does not run on fridays)

Really amazing improving on their ops in Brazil.

Does LA have fifth freedom rights to fly beyond Brazil to Europe? Perhaps, LA could expand its European network if it could fly from SCL through RIO or SSA to LHR or FCO.

Yes, they could run SCL-GIG-LHR, SCL-SSA-LHR or even FCO, MAD and FRA.
I don't know about CDG.

Do Chile and Brazil have open skies? I know Chile is very liberal air traffic-wise, but the Brazil-US treaty is kind of stingy, so it's not obvious which way these two would go.

In fact there are limits on the bilateral but due to the size of both markets, a comfortable limit, 63 weekly flights for each country.
RG keep 14, TAM now 14 (they get 7 to be used from POA, IGU, CWB or FLN), Gol 35.
LAN is the only one using frequencies for Chile.

No doubt the US-Brazil bilateral is underestimate nowadays but TAM is growing and nowadays they get 35 weekly flights (2 JFK and 3 MIA). Very soon will be 42 (with the new GIG-MIA). If RG resumes MIA and JFK and Ocean Air really runs LAX, we will see shortly 63 weekly flights from Brazilian airlines.

I also see potential for POA-SCL nonstop. RG used to operate this route in the past. I am sure LAN's newest route SCL-FLN nonstop will be a winner!
