LATAM wet-leases a 747.

Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:42 am

LATAM Chile has wet-leased a WAMOS Air 747 to temporarily replace some 787 stored after their engine issue.
The 747 comes to help the airline to keep flying to routes where Dreamliners use to do so, together with another 4 A332,
also wet-leased couple weeks ago and are now flying GYE-MAD, BOG-JFK, GYE-JFK, BOG-SCL.
This 747 is equipped with 12 flat bad business seats and 517 economy seats.

It seems also, that it's sister LATAM Brasil is soon transfering to LATAM Chile, four of its ten B777-300ER on temporarily basis.

The 77W transfer is news to me. PT-MUI is bound to leave the fleet soon (left already?), with more 77Ws to follow.

They were always intended to just be placeholders for the A350s, but it’s still sad that 777 operation will reach an end in Brazil, once more.

Pretty cool opportunity to fly the WAMOS 747. Where are the 330s coming from and what are they like interior wise?
Why is flying so expensive? And why is flying well so much more?

The 330s are coming from WAMOS too.

Any word on what will be serving Easter Island and Tahiti?

Was there a time frame announced for the leases?

The ten boeing 777-300ER will remain in the LATAM Brazil fleet, will receive new livery and renovated cabins with 2-2-2 configuration, Madrid and Londes currently fly with daily flights, Miami with two daily flights and very soon Frankfurt with ten frequencies weekly

Does anyone have any idea around global wetlease in place to support the 787 engine issues?

LA- have WAMOS
NZ- HiFly
VS - AB (which they later bought)
NH - ?

About others? Good for the wetlease market

Yes, since the B77W lease terms are not favourable and the fleet is underutilized for most of their time with LATAM. LATAM still have 20 A359 and 8 B787 on order.

I thought they were short-term leases with their respective owners (Nomura Babcock & Brown, DVB Bank, and BCI of Chicago).

They were supposed to, but not anymore. Change of plans.
The 77W will still be part of Latam. This year these birds will have a retrofit, with focus in changing the interior (probably C class with a 2-2-2 config)

NH doesn't need to lease other aircrafts because it has other capable & free planes to replace the 787s.

LATAM Group is not getting rid of the 777 anytime soon. It has recently extended their lease, plains of refit them on 2x2x2 config, apply the new cs and fly them for at least till 2025.

That is what I understand as well. Seems weird to have a sub-fleet of only four A332.

Hmm, that weird. How are they absorbing so much capacity with all the incoming widebody delivery? Something needs to go though. By the way, isn't the reconfiguration the third one in short period of time, I recall their previous F on B77W is one of the mind blowing one.

Yes, they have tons of B763 to play around with, compensation from Boeing for 787's delay.

It seems - via their website - that the following substitutions will be made:

WAMOS:
May01 - A330 - JFK-GYE
May10 - A330 - GYE-MAD
Apr01 - A330 - GYE-SCL x2

LATAM:
Apr01 - 767 - SCL-LIM-JFK
March-June - A320s - SCL-EZE

I don't see anything on their site about a chartered 747...

It looks nice outside, but I really wouldn't want to fly a SCL-MAD leg on one of those.

Without wanting to cause a thread drift, these were leased by VS to cover their MAN North America ops freeing up -300’s to cover 787’s at LHR. Now it looks as if they have realised that actually they are better fitted for MAN. It looks as if they are going to be fully utilising they and developing a MAN base with them.

LATAM Brazil's widebody situation has become so confusing I can't even understand it anymore. This about the 77Ws staying is completely news to me, and is great if that's the plan. I know some of 77Ws were at AUH some time ago for a supposed lease extension/retrofit/repaint, but they all came back the exact way they left Brazil.

Anybody know why PT-MUI has been at GIG for over a week? All I could find was return to lessor.

As for the WAMOS leases by LATAM Chile, I wonder if they'll be able to fill that 744. Great opportunity for avgeeks, though!

Very nice that LATAM is extending the lease of the 77Ws and reconfiguring the J-class cabin. It will be interesting to see how they decide to allocate those planes (e.g., SCL routes, GRU routes, etc.).
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

Same reason as LA - at least one of their 787s is mothballed (or was until recently) at BOG. Also another one of their 787s was out of service at EZE until a couple of weeks ago awaiting an engine change. It has since returned to service.
Keep calm and wash your hands.

Maybe not the 777, their 777 will be returned to lessor and will not receive the new livery.

A few months ago they announced they’d changed their minds and they intended to keep the 77W. They’re planning on retrofitting the cabins and everything.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the 77W's on AKL/SYD and MEL as the 788's are some 40 seats less than the -9's so it will create quite the problem for LA over time.

LA 801 only made it as far as AKL from SCL; not sure about the reason for the cancellation. (CC-BBA).

LA appears to be using a mix of 789 and 788 on the route for the past week. AFAIK, it was some of the 788 fleet that has been mothballed with engine issues; the 789 was not affected.

Also heard that the WAMOS 747 is to be deployed on the SCL-LAX route (not sure if via LIM).
Keep calm and wash your hands.

Well, LATAM confirmed the 747 from Wamos, HOWEVER it came with another new. 2 772 ex-SIA are joining LA's fleet soon.
The ideia of 4 LATAM Brasil's 77W could be expeculation or thrue, no one knows.

For this to happen, the B77W's would have to be moved from the Brazilian outfit to the Chilean one since that's the one that serves AKL/SYD and MEL. May explain why did they change their idea and decided to keep them in first place since they would keep the B77W's but transfer them to the Chilean entity leaving the Brazilian one with B763s and A350's only. This is speculation, of course - anything can happen.

The B787s have engine problems and a refit will take quite a bit of time so makes sense to wet lease these birds and also consider transferring the B77Ws across the network as and when the A350s arrive.

QUESTION: Have the A350s leased to Qatar Airways returned already? I do not see them around when I fly to Doha but they may be around.

Using 787 on SCL - AKL / SYD is a disaster waiting to happen. Really no place to land anywhere if something goes wrong (engine/batteries/etc). I will not set foot on a two-holer on Deep South Pacific routes.

Both A7-AMA/AMB are still in DOH. Can't guess when they're getting back to BR.

Don’t think LA is alone in this regard, NZ operate AKL-EZE with a 787, previously 777 and SA recently downgraded JNB-PER from an A340 to an A330, so at least 3 airlines feel comfortable with it, with QF surely to join the list at some point.

Since December NZ change EZE back to an 77E which has 330min ETOPS, and pretty much has stayed that way. They have been avoiding seeing the 789s on major ETOPs routes for the last couple of months.

Using 787 on SCL - AKL / SYD is a disaster waiting to happen. Really no place to land anywhere if something goes wrong (engine/batteries/etc). I will not set foot on a two-holer on Deep South Pacific routes.


Don’t think LA is alone in this regard, NZ operate AKL-EZE with a 787, previously 777 and SA recently downgraded JNB-PER from an A340 to an A330, so at least 3 airlines feel comfortable with it, with QF surely to join the list at some point.

Add SA's JNB-GRU to the list. 8 hours over the South Atlantic with no ETOPS diversion airport unless you divert back to South Africa or continue on to Brazil. I've flown this route once (and probably one of the loneliest) but I feel perfectly comfortable with an A332.

I notice that tonight's flight is cancelled


LA 801 only made it as far as AKL from SCL; not sure about the reason for the cancellation. (CC-BBA).

LA appears to be using a mix of 789 and 788 on the route for the past week. AFAIK, it was some of the 788 fleet that has been mothballed with engine issues; the 789 was not affected.

Also heard that the WAMOS 747 is to be deployed on the SCL-LAX route (not sure if via LIM).

Using 788 is probably a result of the 789's ETOPS status with regarding to the Trent 1000-C ETOPS downgrade (I don't believe their 788s are young enough to be fitted with Package C). MEL is being operated by 788 for a few days now as well.

LATAM Chile has wet-leased a WAMOS Air 747 to temporarily replace some 787 stored after their engine issue.
The 747 comes to help the airline to keep flying to routes where Dreamliners use to do so, together with another 4 A332,
also wet-leased couple weeks ago and are now flying GYE-MAD, BOG-JFK, GYE-JFK, BOG-SCL..


LA doesn't fly BOG-JFK, only AV. Which btw, are also using a WAMOS A332 on one out of their two daily flights BOG-JFK for months now. Anyone know why?


It must be LIM-JFK. Mistyping maybe hahahahahaha


SCL-LIM-JFK has gone to the revived LATAM Chile's 767 fleet, as have some of the SCL-GRU and SCL-EZE.
Keep calm and wash your hands.

NZ no longer operates the 787 on the AKL-EZE route. Since the 787 fleet's issues started, the route has reverted to the 77E.

The ideia of 4 LATAM Brasil's 77W could be expeculation or thrue, no one knows.

First ex-SQ B772ER has landed. Delivery 23-24 April 2018 from Alice Springs to GIG via BNE.

Boeing 777-212 MSN28532 LN407
Formerly with VIM Airlines as VP-BDR, Singapore Airlines as 9V-SVH


Will these be a temporary measure or will they be painted into LA livery and all?

You will get the previous generation purple coloured, angled flat bed called Spacebed and those thick cushion blue and purple Y seats.

https://ponteaerea.net/2018/04/24/latam ... 777-300er/

Brazilian Aviation Blog is now reporting PT-MUI is en route to AUH, for maintenance and return to lessor.

Not sure about accuracy considering everyone seems to have a different view of what LATAM will do with the 77W fleet, but this would match their 2017 annual report filing, which stated they would go into 2019 with 9 77W aircraft, instead of 10.
