Aircrafts in route LIM - MAD from OCT 2019: Only B787

I've been searching (latam and expertflyer) for aircrafts used in that route in flight LA2484 in many days from now until june 2019.

B767 will be used until 30th September. From then on, B787.

So, the outstanding and so much publicized new business class for the Peruvian branch won't be used in such 'important' route.

How is this a fail? The 787 is a better aircraft than the redesigned 767 and pressurizes at a lower altitude. It's the King of the skies. Like comparing a BMW/BENZ to a Ferrari. Both are great in their respective class but you can't compare the two... There is only one redesigned 767 aircraft in service right now and it's not on any dedicated route. It's been doing everything from JFK-GYE, GYE-MAD, MAD-LIM, LIM-MIA. But the old 767's suck for sleeping. Can't wait to see that metal bar tonight.

Which is what most people do. I ****ing hate flying the 87 because they do 3-3-3, instead of the more sensible 2-3-2.

Which is why I've yet to sit behind the curtain in a 787.

OT, but timely ... at one point (and it may still be the case), I was the Alaska Mileage Plan member who had redeemed the most AS miles on Lan Chile / LAN / LATAM awards. The early years were in front of 2 curtains.
