LanChile Introduces New First and Business Class Service; Greatest Business Class Pitch and Recline Among Carriers Offering Three Classes of Service.

Business/Travel Editors

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 20, 2000

Today in New York, LanChile Airlines unveiled its new first and business class service.

No longer satisfied with a seat, mediocre meals and less than hospitable service, today's educated travelers are demanding more -- more comfort, better food, better frequent flyer benefits, better inflight entertainment, better service, safety, and added value -- all at a competitive price. In the race to meet these passenger expectations, LanChile is leading the way and raising the industry standard, all in an effort to be recognized as one of the top 10 airlines in the world.

Although LanChile introduced new first and business class seats only two years ago, the airline has nearly completed yet another series of enhancements, including reconfiguring its first and business class cabins, and upgrading its seats with additional pitch and recline to provide added comfort and space for its passengers.

Business class has been upgraded to be comparable to the airline's previous first class, including an increase in recline to nearly flat (130 degrees to 150 degrees), as well as an increase in pitch from 49 inches to 56 inches between seats. LanChile's business class pitch and recline are the greatest of any airline flying three classes of service. First class seats have been converted to completely flat sleeper-style seats.

As part of LanChile Airlines' growth strategy, the carrier continues to introduce new aircraft and services to ensure the highest quality of service, efficiency and safety for its passengers in order to be recognized as one of the top 10 airlines in the world. LanChile, a new member of the oneworld(TM) global airline alliance, currently offers 45 flights weekly non-stop and direct flights from its North American gateway cities of Miami, New York and Los Angeles to Lima, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Bogota, Caracas, Guayaquil and Punta Cana. Passengers traveling with LanChile or its affiliate LanPeru may accumulate mileage in American Airlines AAdvantage, LanChile's LanPass and any of the oneworld(TM) member frequent flyer programs.
