Re: What was the FIRST airline to cross the South Pacific (Chile/Argentina to NZ/AUS) and Atlantic (BR-SA)

It appears the poster above me is correct, that this was only a proving flight in 1980, below is a better quality ffc, the one I have also says it's a commercial flight. https://www.delcampe.net/en_GB/collectables/stamps/polar-philately/polar-flights/1980-primer-vuelo-comercial-transpolar-antartico-...

Re: What was the FIRST airline to cross the South Pacific (Chile/Argentina to NZ/AUS) and Atlantic (BR-SA)

Below is a link to an ffc with the service to AKL and HKG. I have one myself somewhere, it appears that service to AKL and HKG was short-lived and was gone before 1983. Looking at some old OAGs, it appears to Aerolineas Argentinas resumed service to AKL in the mid90s. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Argent...

The first scheduled flight for SAA from JNB-GIG-JFK was on 25 February 1969. Aerolineas Argentinas launched EZE-RGL-AKL-HKG on 7 June 1980 with a 747SP.
