Latin American LAN has become the first airline in the Americas to take delivery of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  It is the fourth 787 customer in the world and has 32 of the aircraft on order and lease.
Ignacio Cueto, LAN’s CEO, commented:  “This is a landmark moment not just for LAN, but for all [of] our passengers in Latin American and other countries the 787 will operate to or from.
“Thanks to this aircraft, we will be able to operate longer routes using a plane that is more environmentally friendly and is highly efficient, which will ensure that LAN will be able to move forward through sustainable growth.  Above all, the special features of the 787 will allow us to further improve the travel experience for our passengers.”
