LATAM has set up a website for info regarding its bankruptcy filing: https://www.latamreorganizacion.com/ They have NOT (at this time) declared bankruptcy in Argentina or Brazil. Both markets are out of the CH 11 filing, as is Paraguay. Rest of the markets (Chile, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, USA, Cayma...Jump to post
Argentina has been propping up AR for years now. The AR folks get a neat support package every day of the year.

Its sad the Governments of Brazil and Chile don't care about their airline industry, how many thousands of their citizens work earning decent wages at LATAM. How much Cargo do all those 777 & 787 leaving GRU and SCL for Europe and Miami contribute to exports to those countries ? Billions of Dol...Jump to post
This thread has been hijacked by AA/OW & DL fanboys,,, Jeez... Can we focus on LATAM instead of discussing ad nauseaum if AA or DL was/is better for LA?

I am surprised that LATAM does not have stronger legs to stand on and surprised that the governments does not seem to be willing to help out. LATAM is the biggest South American airline. If that one is not capable of surviving, who is in South America ? Irony mode on. Aerolineas Argentinas. Just li...Jump to post
Not good news for LA; they are planning to restart GRU-MIA next month.

Something it is true, LATAM would love to have AA right now to flow their passengers beyond MIA at this time. Now AA gets to flow interior US to their international destinations on their own metal and LATAM, well they can keep Punta Arenas Except that AA is not flying to anywhere in South America; ...Jump to post
Latam apparently stopped redeeming miles and many employees had salaries for the coming months paid in advance yesterday. They might apply for judicial protection very soon Source? Rumor?

I'm afraid we will see LATAM follow in Avianca's footsteps. While Argentina (and Uruguay) seem under control, COVID is out of control in Brazil (already the second largest number of cases in the world) and increasing in Chile and Peru. These are most of LATAM's core markets.Jump to post
And I assume those A350s will head to Delta as a part of their deal with LATAM. IIRC, Delta's taking 4 existing ones on the LATAM fleet + 10 yet to be delivered from Airbus, including some A350-1000s ordered by LATAM Brazil (TAM). It makes sense they would be these 4. So why bringing them to CNF in...Jump to post

Well LATAM is a much larger company but it is also heavily indebted and producing very small profits for their size.
