Re: Updated: LATAM files for Bankruptcy

PUJ is a very strong market... They will still serve it from LIM. No need, with the present dismal demand, to serve it from SCL too. All LATAM is doing here is concentrating traffic via the LIM hub (CUN/UIO/PUJ/CUZ) and via the GRU hub (all points within Brazil). Too bad for MEL and PPT, but both w...

Albeit temporarily (one hopes), sad to see PPT go away. LAN Chile had been operating the route since the 70s. For years, it was the original route to Australia from South America, connecting with QANTAS at PPT, until the Southern Seas route was inaugurated by AR in the early 80s.
