I'm for it. Why not? Look at it from a business perspective. <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym> CEO Arpey himself said that it was not likely the industry can sustain growth in shareholder value. Let's remember these are public corporations which must ultumately answer to their o...Jump to post
I have a LanChile 707 in glasgow from the 70's
Got it from another site. Usually some A.net stuff though.
I remember touring this beauty, even though I never flew in it, when it came to <acronym title="Miami - International (MIA / KMIA), USA - Florida">MIA</acronym>. It was a wet lease from Aer Lingus, looked great in the old color scheme...<acronym title="Lan Chile">LA</acronym>'s better days! <br><tab...Jump to post
As a "lanfan" no more, I can tell you this airline is only a shadow of its former self. What was once an airline of class, customer service, and absolute professionalism has transformed itself into another banana boat. From my time working at <acronym title="Miami - International (MIA / KMIA), USA -...Jump to post
I took an <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym> 727-200 from La Romana (Dominican Republic) to Miami. I was on a vacation with 25 friends and the flight attendants screamed at us for doing the "RollerCoaster" and throwing around feminine products from the lavs. Im usually a well beha...Jump to post
The 757 did have the new interior with "More Room" in coach, but the seats were the same.The only thing I was not impressed with was the First Class seats. Although the recline nicely, they have no footrest, PTV, or any other commodity of that type. The tray tables are really nice, since you dont ha...Jump to post
Sunday July 23rd I was scheduled to fly EWR-MIA with American. I was flying on a Standby Pass that cost me $25 per leg. I arrived at EWR for the earliest 6:42 am flight and found it to a 757. The gentleman in check in told me that the flight was overbooked in Coach and had 14 availabl in first class...Jump to post
Hey guys, Monday I start working at Miami International Airport. It is a summer program for students between the ages of 16-21 sponsored by the aviation department. I just have a few questions: 1. Do i get an airport ID? 2. They said I would work in "Land Side operations" what's that? I go on monday...Jump to post

Well MIA takes the cake for 727's! American bases its carribbean ops with 727's at MIA, quite a few of them. Delta usually has a 727 at the gate, Continental use to have 727's to IAH (;-( used to fly those alot!! Some Cargo Op's PanAM use to have loads United sends a few over, same with North West.Jump to post
I just got FS2000 Professional Ed. and it is amazing. The GPS and navigation systems are impressive. It is extremely realistic, and the procedures are clearly outlined. Finally one can go through a thorough engine start-up/shutdown, or simply just click on. It is finally possible to do deadstick lan...Jump to post

Does anyonw know if there are any flights between amjor metropolitan airports that have close proximity to each other? If yes, what A/C? Are they regular schedule, or repositioning?
-Is G-VMIA the 747-100 that was leased to Lan Chile the earlier part of this decade? I remember seeing it at MIA when my dad was the Station Manager there, he had one of the F/A's give me a walthrough of the Aircraft. I believe the plane was on wet-lease from Aer Lingus, anybody have more info?Jump to post
I flew Mexicana on a DC-10-(10?) in 1986(7?) on the MIA-Cancun. I flew in Aztec Gold Class. This of course was the hay-day of Mexicana. I believe they are jointly owned, but Mexicana is a higher class airline with more routes, better service, A/C; while Aero Mexico is a lower class "cattle class" ai...Jump to post
Well, I literally live next door. My home is about one half mile of 9R/L approach, and my office is practically ar the threshhold of 9L. All the heavies from AA, Lufthansa, and BA among others can be seen every afternoon. I wonder how Political Corruption will play a role in this. A lot of major MIA...Jump to post
Can anyone give me exactly one route (IE:JFK-CDG), flown by one airline that carries such capacity (1200+) daily that it can employ the A3XX without losing the value of Frequency? Please back this up with facts. I believe as always in the longrun, Boeing will survive, as it survivied McDonald Dougla...Jump to post
UA744Flagship ; Im not sure what Uniteds 777 frequency to SCL is, but LanChile flies the 767-300 with 3/4 flights daily out of MIA and 2 I think out of JFK (And they are booked, I travel to Chile alot, always use Lan, and recently the flights have been tight) American flies its own equipment, altho...Jump to post
Does anyone have PanAm wings? Ive been looking for one that I got when I flew a 747-100 on a MIA-LAX. Next to that my favourite souvenier is the LanChile hygene packs they give in 1st class. My favourite napkin is the Continental napkin that says something like "This is the Thank You note for flying...Jump to post
I think the Pope uses Alitalita a majority of the time. He used an Alitalia MD11 to travel to Cuba. I remember when he went to Chile he flew in Lanchile. I think he uses the country's flag carrier when available (In the US case, I dont know) if not he flies ALITALIA.
I was coming down to MIA from JFK on a LanChile 767-300ER back when they connected throuh MIA. We hit two airpockets. Once over Nantucket, and the other time around JAX. It was an interesting experience. Since the food had been already picked up there was no major debree. The second time I was not s...Jump to post
