Why don't they fly to La Paz non stop. Seems strange that they are the flag carrier for Bolivia. American flies daily n/s to La Paz. Also, does anyone know about the status of their 767's. I read somewhere that they are acquiring 2 of them. Thanks

Great news! Manaus will definitley welcome the additional frequency. MIA-MAO was 10x a week in August 2001, and by November there were no flights left. Varig resumed MIA-MAO in Jan. 2002 with a Saturday service that still remains.

Oh yeah, and to answer the second question, La Paz' runway is too short and too high for non-stop flights to the United States, so LPB-MIA is not physically possible with an A310 or 757-200. American Airlines does MIA-LPB non-stop, but the return stops in Santa Cruz.

Good news indeed,

Always good to see a Latin American airline going back to Miami. On occasion we got LAB charter flights to Curacao with a B727-200. Sometimes they even came for a fuel stop to Curacao. Miami is my favorite airport and always will be. I hope to fly to Miami once Air France starts its A380 service to Miami in the (near) future. I will definately fly that route  Wink/being sarcastic

Just a minor correction, but LAB never left MIA. They are just resuming service to Manaus.

Does anyone know if LAB has a website that is working? I've tried www.labairlines.com, but it just says it is under construction.

The 767s are being delivered to LAB sometime very soon. They actually already show up on the schedules for the last two weeks of December on the Mexico City – Santa Cruz route. I don’t know about their flights to MIA? The 767s are ex-Trans Brazil aircraft from Pegasus that were prepared and painted by TACA’s AeroMan facility in San Salvador.

Apparently LAB is making a kill on the Mexico – South America market. Their lower prices make them the favorite airline of the Argentinian and Uruguayan community now working and residing in Mexico and for Mexican tourist visiting the very affordable Argentina.

Their web-site is being updated as part of the LAB’s effort to re-invent itself into a leading South American airline. Way to go Lloyd Aereo Boliviano.

I flew this route back in 1990. At that time it was La Paz to Santa Cruz then overnight to Manaus to Caracas and finally to Miami. Almost 13 hours of flying and stops! Got food poisoning from the meal on the flight. I think it was the deviled eggs. LAB used to provide a rose to all disembarking passengers in Miami. I wonder if they still do that?
