Hi NearMiss! Great debut on the forum and congrats on your first TR! Wonderful pictures of Pucón and environs. They brought back fond memories of my last visit there some years ago. Nice pictures also from the termas geométricas - and those nalcas... And the terminal Here's a general view from Arau...Jump to post
And now, the final part of this Trip Report. So, to go back to Santiago I, again, went with Sky Airline. And my plane was, again, CC-AFX. We even got the same pilot, though not the same cabin crew and first officer. Here's a general view from Araucanía International Airport https://c4.staticflickr.c...Jump to post

So, FINALLY, after a massive computer crash (had to buy a new one actually, almost US $1200. Ouch) I can upload the rest of the pictures. I'll be uploading some pictures from Pucón itself so you can get a full picture of how beautiful a place it is. So, here goes. To go from Temuco to Pucón you need...Jump to post
Nice TR, also great to read from such lessor known airlines... BTW. is SKY Chile now an Ultra-low-cost-carrier?! I flew SKY in 2013 and it was anything but ULCC. We received full meals on both SCL-PMC and PMC-PUQ...all at half the cost of LA Hey guys. Took me a long time to come back to complete th...Jump to post
Hey guys. So, this would be my first trip report of (hopefully) many more to come. We took a one week vacation with my girlfriend last week and went to Pucón, in Chile's southern part. It's a beautiful small town near the Villarrica Volcano. So first we had to fly from Santiago to Temuco and then ca...Jump to post
Now they only have to exercise their purchase rights on 10% of the company. Seems like a pretty good deal for both players.

Excellent report, though sad that you had lost your GoPro.
Nice to see British AIrways serving Chilean Wine! Was it a good one?
The entering of Air Berlin was too much of a risk on a market dominated by Lufthansa and affiliates. Add to that the really weird decisions taken by their management, like buying Niki or Belair and the mix is very volatile, and is now blowing up. Sad, I think they offer a nice service, but they just...Jump to post
Not a brainer here:
Last commercial flight for a US Airline for the Airbus A318 was Frontier Airlines' Flight 859, DEN - PHX, August 2013
There are several reports on Skytrax of passangers complaining of cigarette smoke smell emanating from the cockpit. One suggested that If you do a Google it appears that smoking in the cockpit is a common occurrence by pilots on EgyptAir. http://www.airlinequality.com/airline-reviews/egyptair/page/...Jump to post
Its a shame we live in a world with such hatred and for what? culture !!!!! :( What would happen if an emergency happened and LY had to make an emergency landing where the nearest airport is in a Muslim country would they be denied? And it's not the worst we've seen. During the Apartheid years, Sou...Jump to post
I've noticed it happens a lot on older models as well. This isn't an isolated incident to former HP frames, which are some of the eldest A320s, but it must not be too serious if it has been going on this long and nothing major has happened as a result. The obvious right thing to do is to divert (ca...Jump to post
Looks really good IMHO, specially the Red, White and Blue on the lower fuselageJump to post
I know Iran is a beautiful country and it could be a very attractive tourist destination, but do they really have that much air traffic to order more than 200 planes all of a sudden?
Anyway, nice to see another country improving his air fleets and infrastracture
