LAN Departs AKL

Lan Chile are the only carrier to operate non-stop flights from Santiago Chile to Auckland, with continuing service to Sydney, Australia. LAN operates to Sydney via AKL with a daily service in the summer months and usually cuts back to only 6 flights per week in the winter months with no flights in and out of AKL on Wednesdays. LA have a fleet of 5 A340-300 aircraft that alternate on this sector, which is a perfect route for the A340 which normally has a fuel load of about 81 tonne's for the 10 hours & 30 minutes back to SCL from AKL.
These shots are of flight LA800, CC-CQC, departing AKL runway 05R for SCL.
