Re: Long Haul Crew Logistics: Day One or Weekly

I wonder what's the case for LA's 1 weekly SCL-IPC-PPT, TAAG's weekly Luanda-Havana. I can picture TAAG's crew staying in Havana for a week after such a long flight, but a whole week in Papeete for Latam? These airlines serve no other destinations in the vicinity for the crew to serve. Or Latam's cr...

Re: DY to serve Cayenne (French Guiana)

This may sound dreamy What about LATAM launch a 2/3x weekly flight to CAY from GRU (or BOG) and advertise the new destination as an alternative to, say, Punta Cana or instead as something completely new? And in Guyana as the only option to reach the rest of the continent and connections to Miami fro...

Re: Airlines and Social Media- gosh is it worth it?

Chilean firms are quite good with social media, Jetsmart & Sky are solid examples and the social media for SCL is very active among its mods and customers alike. near to zero complaints and full of commentators giving positive feedback.

Re: Possible new routes of LATAM Brazil in Europe

A Belgian forum had said that JJ was in talks with Brussels Airport to launch passenger services to BRU, but talks were 'suspended' following the terror attacks.

Re: LAN, MIA to Punta Cana to SCL

As of I know, no traffic rights on LAN ex Miami to Cancún or Punta Cana. I'd say the flight continues to Miami for positioning to serve other flights (red-eye to SCL) while carrying by day a few pax ex SCL via CUN to fill the flight to the gills... or it's either operated by tradition? I mean CUN &a...

Re: LH Group - Why not operating all different group airlines under a single brand name?

I hear nationalism so much as a reason not to... yet in Belgium particularly no one cares about Brussels Airlines, only the newspapers made a fuss about LH potentially rebranding Brussels Airlines to EW, every other Belgian couldn't be bothered. The casual passenger (so not ff) can't recall correctl...

Re: Argentina domestic market share

This will become a bloodbath before long. I can’t see the market supporting that many carriers...probably 4 at most. I predict Andes will fold unless they re-shift their whole ops to charter to miss out the fierce competition and work on a niche instead. Such company doesn't have the pockets to com...

Re: The Public's View on Flight Attendants

So, do you think the public has an unfair view of them Yes. Some people think that they're their servants, others think that they're people on a power trip, and still others think they're there to flirt with. In all cases, I compare them to doctors, lawyers, and cops-- so many people treat them bad...

Re: BA Goes Basic

I wouldn't call it race to the bottom with two pieces of hand luggage, blankets, headphones, drinks and meals at no extra cost. With a weekend bag and a backpack you can fit in clothes for up to 10 days. This is a better product than the long-haul LCC's I reckon

Seriously? You're talking about a beloved member of my family here. Yes, seriously. It's a dog (or cat, rabbit, snake or something else), not a family member. Not 2 days will go before your "beloved family member" will have settled completely in with its new family. It won't even take tha...

Re: Can a better way to transport pet be created in aviation world?

kinda off topic: does a pet ticket cost the same or more than a human? (on average).

Edit: googled pet airways and they're going to relaunch ops https://www.facebook.com/Pet-Airways-36484447069 https://petairways.com/

Re: China-Latin America Air Links Thread

I'd like to point out that there were credible rumours (staff at SCL) that Air China about 4-3 years back was looking into SCL... That was when Argentina wasn't doing well, so now EZE would be more likely?
