Important to remember: sharklets were only available in A320 family in 2012. Not all frames could be retrofitted with sharklets, just some more recent ones at the time (wing structure related).
LAA order came around this time. LUS planes are older than that, and thus have no sharklets.

They even have a link to that picture https://news.delta.com/boeing-777-old-delta-livery with the title "Boeing 777 in old Delta livery".

Yes, all LA A350 belong to Latam Brasil. QR had subleased 5 frames, and 4 of them were returned recently (A7-AMB, AQA, AQB, AQC) Still curious to know their fate. A7-AMB was previously registered in Brazil as PR-XTF. The other 3 were not registered, but they would supposedly be PR-XTJ, XTK, XTL. QR ...Jump to post
A LATAM Brazil Flight from JNB to DPS is about to arrive. An A359. Weird! LA9517 on FR24. Looks like it is scheduled to depart LA9518 on Monday back to JNB. I also see LA 9520 from SAO to DPS for Sunday, and A359. LATAM is serious about repatriation flights, I assume. Nice job, stay safe. Just read...Jump to post
Another day with some unusual Latam flights: - JJ9454 GRU-LAX B77W (PT-MUE) - LA1102 GRU-LAX B789 (CC-BGK) - LA1130 GRU-LAX B788 (CC-BBI) Does anyone know why 3 flights to LAX? It's the second day this is happening. I am also curious to know. None of those planes departed from LAX yet. That makes 2...Jump to post

Brazilian website Passageiro de Primeira (proxy to TPG) analyzed this topic a few months ago (link below in Portuguese). It seems that the law allows flights up to 14h, and anything beyond that would depend on negotiations with crew union. Thus, not expressly forbidden but also not automatically pos...Jump to post

Local website is announcing this as official response from Latam (link in Portuguese).
The config has been announced a while ago and the first renovated 767 has been flying for a few months now (mainly Peru routes). The first 77W (PT-MUD) has also been flying for a month now (mainly GRU-MAD). But the event mentioned by the OP was the official launch in Brazil, held inside the new line...Jump to post
There is a typo in the announcement. The presented amount is in USD, not BRL.

There is already a 767 in commercial service with the new cabins, but it is based in LIM. That said, the first 77W slated to receive the new cabins was flown to AUH. PT-MUD has been in AUH since October, but I am not sure if it started retrofit since then... There was already a slack in JJ longhaul...Jump to post
It probably can. LA/JJ flew GRU-BOG with A320 CEO in the past. I took this flight several times during the last 2 years.Jump to post
This plane was A7-AMA, one of the 2 A359s they leased from Latam.
All 77Ws are GE90 poweredJump to post
The latest fleet plan shows the end of 2020 https://thepointsguy.com/news/aa-767-retirement-retains-a330s/ In the article: Keeping the A330-300s: The plan was to retire all nine of AA’s A330-300s in 2020 to help simplify the fleet. Now, those retirement plans are on hold. The airline plans to keep ...Jump to post

Yes, they even returned one from storage (PT-MUI) recently, repainted in the new Latam scheme.Jump to post

On rack rate (for members and non members) they include complimentary companions (family and friends).
Former Varig aircraft were the temporary MD-11s, which were returned once the 77Ws started to arrive.
Currently no former RG aircraft in their fleet.
Only 10 763's are getting the updates - 7 are being retired over next year. Does anyone know which ones? Hopefully PT-MOG is among those retired soon...the oddball of JJ's fleet. What does all this matter if they keep the same horses as FA? I mean, in the Brazilian division TAM. Intl FA for JJ is e...Jump to post
You are correct.
Both fly to GRU and only BA to GIG. LA/JJ used to fly GIG-LHR regularly in the past, now I guess it is only seasonal/one-offs (if ever).
PT-MOG is the oddball of JJ fleet, the only one with the old LA interior. How long it will take them to refit or retire this frame.Jump to post
