Hello community members and welcome aboard this LATAM flight to Punta Arenas - known to be one of THE most scenic commercial flight in the world. I can see why!

This most southern part of South America brings a diverse amount of landscape featuring the Andes mountains, volcanoes, meadows and lakes. I haven’t flown this route before but for me that’s by far the best part of Infinite Flight - the diversity and endless possibilities to explore areas, regions and routes not otherwise done before.

This is a well flown route by LATAM Chile who use their A320 family aircraft right up to the smooth, long legged 787s and that’s what we’re in today. CC-BGK is the aircraft of choice - an almost 6 year old 787-9 owned by the airline since new. 2 Rolls Royce Trent 1000s powered us along at 39,000 feet south towards the Patagonia area.

It was a thoroghly enjoyable flight and we landed as planned at Punta Arenas International with no delays, though a very bumpy arrival as we were battered by 160 knots in all directions. From here on the flight deck we wish you a pleasant stay or safe onward journey.

Good times!
