Flight path.

Brazil's TAM moves 11.5 million passengers a year and reports more than 26 billion revenue-passenger kilometers (RPK), a measure of passenger demand based on how far those customers fly. Varig, at press time TAM's potential merger partner, moves more people over less distance. If merged, they would dominate the region. LanChile, meanwhile, reports revenue kilometers in line with Mexicana, Aeromexico and TAM, yet does so on far few tickets, an indicator of the distances Chileans must travel to visit the rest of the the world.
