I believe their fleet looks something like this:

1 Boeing B747-400
1 Boeing B767-200ER
4 Boeing B737-400/300
4 Boeing B737-200
5 Boeing B727-200

With Bolivia's high altitude conditions, not sure if the Q400 would do them a lot of good

Reading the wiki article, it appears that those Q400's are on order. Maybe someone can navigate to bombardiers website to see if that's accurate.

It does seem that this is some false information. According to a recent article from 17OCT on their website they plan to augment their fleet by three planes. Another 733 is due this year and they plan to add two 763 in 2012.

If there would have been an order or the intent to take up used Q400s I think they would have added this in this article. Also, no word about this on South American forums.

According to their in-flight magazine and my observations:

2x 722 (only one active at the moment)
1x 732
4x 733
1x 734
1x 762ER
1x 744



Pictures of their fleet page in their in-flight magazine can be seen here:
