introduction


Hello Guys! Welcome to another Flight Report from Santiago to Concepcion aboard in an Airbus A320 of LATAM! 


Buying the Ticket


The flight cost me $23 USD ($23000CLP)! Absolutely cheap, it was a promotion of LATAM! My flight was LA3 an it departs on Friday 19/01 at 06:25AM.

The Airport wasn't very busy. :)

Security Control


The security control was absolutely fast because there wasn't many people at the Airport at this hours!

Boarding


Passed the security control, was time to go to the boarding gate!

And finally my A320 was ready for boarding! :)


Aircraft


My Aircraft today was an Airbus A320-233 with the registraion of CC-COK, is one of the oldest A320 of the LATAM fleet making his first flight in July 2001 with LAN Chile, in 2008 got transfered to LAN Argentina, renamed as LV-BTM, in 2018 returned to LATAM Chile, getting his old registration back and fly till nowadays. Almost 23 years of Service! Unfortunately LATAM probably will retire this aircraft in the next couple of months/years :(. It has a configuration of 168 seats.

Aircraft Interior and Seats


And for second consecutive flight I got a plane with the old LAN interior…


photo 20240119_055128

As I said in the Aircraft description, this aircraft probably will not be retrofited, it will be retired by LATAM in the next couple of months or years! :(


photo 20240119_055135photo 20240119_055233

My seat: 5A. :)


photo 20240119_062759

Legroom was okay for me. :)


photo 20240119_055656

This was the old light system of this plane…


photo 20240119_055828

The armrest of my seat was broken and I found this sticker from a maintenance that was carried out on this seat back in June 2008!


photo 20240119_060439

These old seats have a very big table. :)


photo 20240119_055643

The cabin looks very old, but incredibly very clean! Good job LATAM! :)


photo 20240119_055421

And the best part obviously, the old soft comfortable seats! :) Only 3 A320 remaining with this interior: CC-BLA, CC-COK and CC-COL and probably all of them will be retired from the fleet in a not very distant future. :(


photo 20240119_055437

Oh! Thats me! :)


photo 20240119_055540

The boarding was almost finishing and the flight was very busy!!!


photo 20240119_060627

Finally when boarding finished the crew gave me a gift with a message of luck to follow my dream to be a pilot! :)

Departing


We were ready to depart, and we started the pushback very punctual! :)


photo 20240119_060611

Once we started the pushback the cabin lights got turned off! :)

We finally started the taxi!

Snack Service


It was snack time and first the cabin crew gave me chocolate popcorn…


photo 20240119_064649

And then they gave me a glass with mineral water and a coffee with sugar and cream! Nothing bad to be in Economy and Free!

Cruiser mode


As you can see, the flight was very busy, more than 95% of occupation in this flight!

LATAM Play Review


LATAM Play worked perfectly! I watched a Simpsons episode but not complete because its a very short flight, 8/10 for Entertainment!

Arrival


We finally arrived in Concepcion Carriel Sur Airport! :) As you can see in the photo, the flight was absolutely busy, almost overbooked!

Passengers finally left the plane and the cabin and seats looked very pretty and clean! :)

    Hola Mariano!

    Yet another pro report from our Chilean correspondent! I like that!

    Absolutely cheap

    Sale mucho más barato andar en avión que en bus en estos días!!

    I got a plane with the old LAN interior

    I miss it... a little bit.

    These old seats have a very big table.

    Guaraná!! Mi favorita!! Cuando voy a Brasil casi no tomo otra cosa!! 😅

    Oh! Thats me!

    Nice lanyard! I was in Rancagua the other day and got a Dexter's Lab lanyard for one of my analogue cameras. My sister and I were much like Dexter and Dee Dee when we were little. 😁

    A Boeing B737-200 ex DAP Mineral Airways

    Yo creo que ese avión ya echó raíces! 😆

    We finally got LATAM Play in the older cabins!!!

    That's good news! 🥳

    chocolate popcorn

    Lo justo y necesario para llegar vivo a CCP. Pero por ser desayuno podría haber una cosita más sustanciosa... digo. Bueno, no voy a pecar de malagradecido.

    the flight was very busy, more than 95% of occupation in this flight!

    Y todos con tuto.

    Passengers finally left the plane

    Me tomé la libertad de ponerle un antifaz a la auxiliar de vuelo. Aunque no lo creas, hemos recibido quejas por otros reportes porque hay personas a las que no les gusta que se publique su cara en internet. Una vez escribió una señora muy enojada de África!

    Saying goofbye to CC-COK, for the service and for the perfect flight!

    A perfect flight, indeed. And a great report! 😁

    Que tengas un excelente año, Mariano!! Con muchos vuelos!! ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
