Re: LATAM ending IAD service

Here is the load factor and passenger data from the DOT (May of 2016 to July of 2017). I know this data does not tell the full story of how the airline was doing on this route, but I thought it was beneficial for discussion. Looks like LATAM had some good load factors in the northern summer but othe...

I was just browsing around today and noticed that LATAM has closed bookings for IAD-LIM flights after February 28, 2018. Could they possibly be leaving the market? I do not recall seeing any news articles or any other indications that they are leaving. They started service back in 2016 IIRC with 3x...

Re: OAG Changes NYE2017: DL Adds CVG-AUS, EK Trims JFK, FI Grows SEA; UA Adds Summer EWR-SRQ
