Default First LATAM Service To Sydney Airport

It was a ‪#‎VividSydney‬ this morning to welcome the first new livery LATAM B789 Dreamliner, which was only delivered from Boeing on 13th May 2016. LATAM
is the new airline formed from a merger of LAN and TAM, and their respective subsidiaries. With the head office in Santiago, Chile, LATAM operates passenger
flights out of South America, Central America, North America and the Caribbean, Europe and Oceania with a total of 135 destinations in 23 countries.

Having a look a look through the usual places it appears the other LATAM airlines have small flags just behind the cockpit windows identifying the country the aircraft is registered and therefore airline which is operating the flight, (its my understanding that each previous legal entity still exists, they now have common branding and a common booking engine along with other back office functions).

I haven't seen this on any of the Chilean registered aircraft though. Any ideas why?

Cheers

Only thing I can think of is that LAN Chile, pre the LATAM days, was the 'primary' LAN airline, so maybe it was kind of a 'if it has a flag, it's that country; if not, it's Chile'?

With three LATAM livery B789 Dreamliners now in the LAN fleet, we are starting to see regular visits by these new livery aircraft. B789 Dreamliner
CC-BGK and CC-BGL were delivered from Boeing in the LATAM livery, however CC-BGA has been re-painted in the LATAM livery after being delivered
in LAN livery only 16 months ago. CC-BGK is seen here landing on Sydney Airport Runway 34R, after its flight from Santiago via Auckland. The
Santiago-Auckland sector is 13hr 25min, and the Auckland-Sydney sector 3hr 12min in duration.

The Australian Business Traveller has advised today that LATAM is commencing non-stop services from Sydney to Santiago three days per week from November, 2019 by reducing the Auckland stop to four services per week.

LATAM is moving to non-stop flights between Sydney and Santiago as of November 2019. The Oneworld member and Qantas partner's daily Sydney-Santiago flights currently see a two hour stop-over in Auckland, which will remain in place four days a week, but three days will see the Boeing 787 dart directly between the two cities in an estimated 14 hour flight.

Flew back in from AKL on LA801 yesterday morning. Helluva commute to the office!

I do enjoy the QF codeshared flights to and from Auckland on LA, so much so that I only flew VA (gold status) or LA to AKL prior to this trip. Ended up on QF145 on the way over on Sunday afternoon.

It seems to beg the question how long QF will persist with the B744 on the SYD-SCL route now, especially considering their oneWorld alliance member is doing direct on a B789 three times a week. They would be smart to run a B789 on the days that LATAM is not going direct from a fuel perspective alone.

Hi Joel, there is some further information on extended range operations on this site in the QANTAS 787 post in Australian and New Zealand Industry. Posts 452 to 457 refer.

The details of the non-stop flights by LATAM from SCL - SYD - SCL are:

LA 803 arrives SYD at 6:15 on Mon, Thu, Sat (flying time 14:45) and LA802 departs SYD at 10:00 on Mon, Thu, Sat (flying time 13:15) effective from 28 October, 2019.

The LATAM flights on the other days of the week will continue to fly via AKL with similar timings to the current schedule.
