JV's are not possible with Argentina as they don't hold open-skies agreements with either the US or EU. For the U.S., the 1985 air service agreement was amended around the edges in 2019 and removed restrictions on frequencies and capacity, but falls short of open-skies. Meanwhile, for Europe, the f...Jump to post

I exclude the A321 because there are only 5 and they are pretty elderly.
What sort of LH network do you envisage?

AFAIK, LAN Chile inherited only one from the merger with LADECO, CC-CYH. After just a year with LAN it moved across the Andes to Argentina's LAPA. It continues to fly today as a freighter with FedEx as N995FD.
During its tenure with LAN it flew pretty much all over South America and to Miami.

I’m still surprised about MEX. I wouldn’t be surprised if AM starts MEX-FCO on the 789 to fill the void. MEX may well be a major global city and a ST hub, but has few ties to Italy .
