I think I've read here that the B787-9's CASM is low enough for LCC's to operate them profitably. I know AR is not a LCC, but given that the B787 has been quite a huge success in South America because of this lower CASM, I wonder how low is it compared to that of the A330neo. That might be something...Jump to post
At least it wasn't fatal, but the damage to that engine looks severe.
Must be hard to get a new engine for a Jumbolino these days, so I wonder how they'll manage to get one.
So this is what we'll be getting on the SCL route.Jump to post
Well, some more unsurprising news. The Peruvian DGAC has suspended LAW's operating certificate because of the continuous delays and passengers being repeateadly stranded in Lima. Seems like the final nail in the coffin for LAW: https://www.indecopi.gob.pe/-/comunicado-sobre-suspension-de-operaciones...Jump to post
I work at a hotel here in Santiago and most Americans book flights and rooms via Expedia. Funnily, most come via United, even though it only has one daily flight compared to American's two daily flights and LATAM's three daily flights.Jump to post
Is this "person" actually confusing "good looks" with "being sexy and sexually arousing"?Jump to post
I was wondering when this would happen. LAW's operations in Chile have always been a bit shady, and with the huge increase on immigrants coming from Venezuela and Haiti, they got a bad reputation of being a "One-way-ticket" airline. They were even (unfundedly) accused of smugling immigrant...Jump to post
I'm seeing a future 787-9 deal. LATAM replaced they're A340s with 787s and it worked out quite nicely for them.Jump to post
Boy am I glad I'm not the only one that saw this one coming.Jump to post
And there are other issues as well. This is a video uploaded yesterday that shows a loose window frame on one of LAW's 737-300s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX1etgtBgIQ It doesn't say its LAW's airplane, but it's flying between Concepción and Santiago, and LAW is the only airline flying 737s in ...Jump to post
Well, that was quick. They just got their AOC and should be announcing their first routes very soon.

Lots nice and like the frontier livery which gives a clue on who owns them.(Indigo Partners) When will they start Ops? Last time I read it was in July. They've been talking with the local DGAC to get the corresponding certificates to start flying soon. They're very advanced in these talks. For what...Jump to post
Hey guys So, we're getting a new airline in Chile and its first plane is coming this way, an Airbus A320-232SL, S/N 7595, CC-AWA (Originally built for Vueling, ntu). They're planning on bringing two more CEOs, for a start, and then adding 6 NEOs in the following years. JetSmart is part of Indigo Par...Jump to post
And here I was wondering why we're only getting Delta's 76W at SCL. Maybe we're not sending that much cargo to the US?Jump to post
Hey guys So, KLM, as I write, is withdrawing its Boeing 747-400s from use. So, for the SXM run they are sending their A330s, but, AFAIK, KLM is also withdrawing their A330s as their leases are coming to end. So, my question is, what will they send afterwards? 787-9 would be my choice, but I don't kn...Jump to post
I can see EZE - PPT happening, but I don't know if it would work without a stop in IPC, and to land in IPC you must ask LATAM for permission, as there is some sort of a monopoly.
TLV is a really good plan in my opinion as the Israeli/Jewish comunity in Argentina is quite big.

That, and the fact that they own 10% of the LATAM Group
just out of curiosity, how does this affect LATAM? Is QR pumping money into LATAM?
Update on this: Lybia is also cutting relations with Qatar. Not looking good at all.Jump to post
Now, if QR ends up having problems, LATAM has problems. One problem after another for the Chilean/Brazilian joint venture. Why? I thought QR doesn't have much presence in Latin America?

I don't know if this has been asked before, but a few months ago, after the Fire Fighting IL-76 left Chile for Russia I was wondering why do some old russian planes have those canopies under or on their noses? Were they intended to be used by a navigator of some sort? 4331097 4329687 4273151 4231335Jump to post
At least there are no injured people on board. Wonder what went wrong.
What was the weather at the moment?
That's a pretty long flight for a 737 :crazy: Now, I don't know if it stopped in Mejillones as there is no airport there, at least on the Chilean city. There is a Mejillones near La Paz Airport, so that might be the one. Now, there was definitely a stop between Papeete and Antofagasta, and, if it wa...Jump to post
Down here, you get lots of "Banco de Chile" stickers on Sky Airline's planes, as they have a Commercial Alliance called "Alianza Travel", in which you can get miles and use them to fly with either Sky, Delta or Iberia. I believe there's also an A320 going around with a big "...Jump to post
Nice report! A few things: Those LAN Dash 8s came from Aires Colombia after the take over and have already left the fleet, together with the B737-700 also inherited from Aires. LAN's 767s are powered by CF6-80s by the way, though they were some with P&W engines a few years ago. Hopefully LAN and...Jump to post
It's a shame that the A340-500 was always treated as the unwanted child by (almost) all of its operators. It is the sexiest A340 out there. I wonder how long Azerbaijan Airlines will keep flying theirs? It's a very striking bird in their deep blue livery. It is :mrgreen: 4206991 I wonder if they ar...Jump to post
