Vuelo SANTIAGO PUNTA ARENAS, LATAM Airlines PREMIUM Business | Boeing 787 Dreamliner CC-BGM
Hello, hello, hello everyone! How are you? My name is 'Ariel Cruz Pizarro' and today we will see a 'Santiago - Punta Arenas' flight on 'LATAM Airlines' in the beautiful plane 'Boeing 787 Dreamliner' category 'Premium Business', yes, I traveled like a king to 'Patagonia' hahahaha It was a very nice trip. The video has subtitles in many languages so you can enjoy my day. I left very early. I arrived at the 'Santiago' airport at 05:00 in the morning after seeing the counter information to see where I had to go . deliver the bags
I got to the 'LATAM' area and now there are some machines you have to use these self-service machines to print the baggage belt for several people it was easy, but for me it was very complicated it took me a lot to make it work and when It did it I don't know why it worked, but it worked and that was what mattered in the end, I managed to get tape for one suitcase and I had two suitcases so, they printed the tape on the other suitcase at the counter with that ready, I did the boarding process pass the security checkpoint and I started looking for where to have breakfast I hadn't slept much but I was very happy with the idea of doing this trip I was excited happy to be able to start a nice vacation in 'Patagonia' for breakfast, I bought a hamburger at the ' McDonalds' is not the healthiest, but I needed to fill my belly , it was necessary, hahaha, since it was early and there were a few hours left for my flight , I saw the sunrise at the airport, I was taking photos and recording the planes that I could see at that time , I Those who follow the channel and my adventures will have noticed it a lot, people who follow the public transport theme have been noticing it for years, I publish a lot about it, this channel is my travel log, here I document my adventures , I invite you to subscribe if you like this type of topics , these types of videos many times, more than a destination, for me the trip is the greatest adventure what I most hope for and enjoy in 'Chile' I have had the opportunity to fly on several occasions I have also seen used by bus many times but there are very few options to travel in a premium service like the one on this trip for the same reason, that the flight was so early or that I slept 1 hour that night are things that don't bother me, having these views and having this type of service for me, it makes up for it my boarding was at gate 18A, this is on the second floor I had to move from where I was in the distance, you could see the tail of our plane before, the only domestic flight made with these large planes was 'Santiago - Isla de Pascua', a flight that I did, although it is not fully recorded , I have pieces, it is on the website and for a little while, about 1 year, there has been the 'Santiago - Punta Arenas' flight, my cell phone was unloading so I loaded it there are some plugs that you can use for that purpose for free on the boarding pass there are groups with numbers for people to board without so much crowding I had 'Group 1' because I had this 'Premium' seat I was one of the first to enter I am not an airport specialist, yes, but I understand that this area was for international flights, as there is now another terminal at the airport , this has spread and is also used for domestic flights, the line was long and we waited for a long time to be able to, Finally, getting on the plane, I took the opportunity to take photos, to record, I was happy, very happy, very happy , haggard, but happy , happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, hahaha, that's the attitude, that's the attitude , the boarding began of the plane in the sleeve the beginning of a very nice and entertaining trip that we will surely enjoy all, all, all inside, after the greeting of the crew the first thing you see are these 'Premium Business' seats these seats have the ability to recline at 180° they are completely horizontal and well, they are quite elegant also these planes 'Boeing 787' are used for long distance flights mainly international services this plane, 'CC-BGM' has worked these days the route to 'Punta Arenas' but also other services from 'Santiago' to 'Los Angeles', 'Miami', 'Punta Cana', 'Madrid', 'Lima' among other destinations for tourists who come to the 'Patagonia' is brilliant to be able to travel on a plane like this to get to know 'Torres del Paine' among other places, I think it makes the trip more attractive but the reality is that these planes are flying there because of the great cargo capacity there is a lot of cargo movement towards 'Punta Arenas' so much so that in the summer there was more than one frequency with these planes for me, as a happy passenger I would travel lots of times on these planes I would invent trips to 'Punta Arenas' in order to travel on this On the other hand, such a beautiful plane , while I was enjoying the benefits of the seat and documenting some of its characteristics, we had sunrise in the window and several planes in sight , the sun was beginning to be seen from the mountains of the 'Cordillera de Los Andes' on 'Boeing 787' has no cut inas in the windows instead, there is a button panel that allows you to increase or reduce the light that enters through the windows there are 5 levels of opacity, it is an electric window and when the window is darker it has a deep blue tone quite beautiful the flight 'Santiago - Punta Arenas' connects the capital of 'Chile' with 'Patagonia' , it is about 2,180 km of flight and it takes about 3 hours and 15 minutes . On a clear summer day, there weren't many planes in that area . Among the most notable things we saw during the taxing was an old plane, a 'Boeing 737' from 'Aerovías DAP' and a 'Bombardier Challenger' from the DGAC, the 'Aeronautica Civil del Estado' ' In the distance we also saw another impressive 'Boeing 787 Dreamliner' in that view you can see that it is a much larger plane, it is a huge plane it really is very beautiful, 'CC-BBC' was the license plate of that plane I do not know the route that was doing, but it was very nice we also saw a 'Boeing 767' of 'United Airlines' that makes the trip 'Santiago – Houston' although I don't know what it was doing there, it must have been kept that plane flies at night towards 'Estados Unidos' in the distance, on the street parallel to the airport and the take-off runways, as I have shown on other occasions , there was a 'J07' bus from 'Transantiago', more of my reality, hahaha (the exciting moment of take-off!) (although with the sun above us, we don't see much) (but it's always nice to see everything from above) the moment of takeoff is so exciting when the plane speeds up and runs and runs and runs and runs from above, the sun and the cloud cover don't allow us to see so much of the city we leave the 'Santiago' airport with their planes and we advance through the western sector of the capital the sun can be seen quite high up nothing like flying through the window I will tell an anecdote about it with this same flight and in the distance, we can see the 'Cerro San Cristóbal' standing out in the valley in full center of the city on the flight, we will enjoy v very nice ists I have already shown this flight before but one always sees different things on each trip, that is always the case the seat has a button panel to be able to recline both the backrest and the footrest I played a little with the buttons until I found how to do it I recognize that in many of these cases, more than a serious adult traveling , my internal feeling is more reminiscent of my 'Pobre Angelito', I have and still keep that enthusiasm of a child with these things, especially with transport , the seat can recline as a bed , in 180° although in this video it will not appear that way but they understand how it works and that it is a comfortable seat I traveled very comfortable, it was a very pleasant trip in that sense and this seat made things much more entertaining one of the stewardesses passed by our seat to give us breakfast these seats have a folding table but you have to remove it from the inside I did it, although with one hand it can be a bit difficult because with the other hand I was recording my breakfast I had a bread with ham and cheese some packet chips, also a glass of juice and another glass of tea from what I wrote down, there was a vegetarian option for the bread and another vegetarian snack instead of the fries you could order tea, coffee, drinks, juice or mineral water in the economic seats there is a snack but it is much, much smaller I ordered an additional glass of tea and another glass of juice because yes, you could repeat, fortunately you could repeat In addition, 'LATAM' provides a small towel with alcohol to be able to sanitize your hands . This flight as such goes over the literal, literal 'Cordillera de Los Andes' , over the mountains, which is why the views from this side correspond mainly to 'Argentina', you see several lakes in 'Argentina' we could see the 'Tromen' lake, which is on the right I mentioned that lake when I went to the border in 'La Araucanía' a very nice trip another spectacular view is the volcano ' Lanin' in the middle of the border with 'Chile' and 'Argentina' and the 'Huechulafquén' lake, which is totally Argentine, that 'Lanin' volcano we also saw in that same video of the Araucanian border, an impressive lake to see, because it is huge, it is the 'Nahuel Huapi' lake ' which is well known because in the southern part is the city of 'Bariloche' , it is very beautiful, this whole area is very beautiful , the south of 'Chile' and the south of 'Argentina' have some beautiful national parks, some volcanoes, some landscapes so beautiful I could go many times and I would not get bored I have had the fortune to go, to share it with you, it is wonderful and believe me that I always think of coming back below us, we had an incredible view of 'Monte Tronador' an inactive volcano that also it is on the border from 'Argentina' there are walks, tours to the 'Ventisquero Negro' you can visit it and see it, it is very beautiful, I went years ago that mountain is called that because there is a snowdrift up there, well actually there are many but within that there are a snowdrift that can be seen and he ice crackles, so when it crackles it sounds like thunder and can sound at great distances, it's a beauty to me 'Monte Tronador' is one of my favorite mountains and with this view of 'Monte Tronador', I give up, with that... with that alone it has already been worth this whole trip , this whole flight and all this, hahahaha but you have to keep enjoying, you have to keep enjoying these planes 'Boeing 787' have an entertainment screen they are the only ones in 'Chile' because the other smaller planes of 'LATAM' and other airlines do not have these screens, it is not common to see here in 'Chile' the screen was big, although it was a bit far away there are sections with movies, music, television series There is variety in the classic map to see where you are, although I was more concerned with looking outside and getting some rest because I didn't sleep at all at night . I had a few short naps on the flight. I put on one of the 'LATAM' videos promoting the area. 'Punta Arenas' is a na very beautiful in 'Patagonia' the city is very beautiful and the surroundings also as the main or strongest attraction is 'Torres del Paine' national park cataloged as one of the wonders of the world is very beautiful and in addition to that there are navigations to glaciers , visits to sheep ranches you can see penguins the video is very nice, it highlights not only the part of landscapes but also the other cultural, gastronomic offer 'Punta Arenas' had many European immigrants mainly from the 'Balkans' so it is a city very different from the rest of the country and it is also very cold being at the end of the world for me, the biggest entertainment on the screen was to see the map, really, that is, to see where we were flying, what we were seeing in the meantime, before continuing I'll tell you about the plane and how it was to buy the ticket, if it's so expensive or not, etc, etc, let's see that the plane for this trip is a 'Boeing 787 Dreamliner' the '789' version which is the longest license plate 'CC-BGM ', its first flight was in January 2017, it has 30 'Premium Business' seats and 283 economy seats in total, it can move 313 passengers, I traveled in seat 2A, almost at the beginning of the plane 'LATAM' has about 25 planes 'Boeing 787' and the fleet has about 135 aircraft in service the ticket cost me almost 110,000 pesos, about 160 dollars although the prices in the airlines are always variable there are no fixed values, if you buy it it can be a very different value depending on the date you buy, among many other factors I bought it 2 months in advance you can buy at LATAMAirlines.com you must choose 'Santiago – Punta Arenas', the dates will appear the flights with the departure and arrival times here the distinctive way is to click and see which aircraft appears, it could be 'Airbus A320', 'Airbus A321' and it helps us to say 'Boeing 787' because otherwise we will travel in another smaller plane that is not bad but this service is not another way to deduce it is the time of saw aje because this plane takes about 12 minutes less than the other is a subtlety but over there you can also see 'LATAM' offers 3 economic fares: 'Basic', 'Light', 'Plus' and the latter has hold luggage and is the 'Premium' seat, which is a little more expensive , but if you buy it with time , the price difference may not be much and it is convenient to travel in the 'Premium' I did the exercise of simulating the purchase to show you here the plane of the '788' version which is a little shorter in the 'Premium Business' cabin, there are 30 seats, 2 by 2 when you choose a seat, there is no additional charge for choosing this in the Boeing '788' and '789' version and in the economy seats cabin starts from row 12, letters A to L in the '788' version there are 36 rows with 217 seats and in the '789' version like the one on my trip there are 43 rows it's longer, it's bigger in this category, you are charged additionally for the seat you choose, each seat has a different price except for seats in the end that do not have additional value for the end, there are some seats without a window, you have to be careful with that , check seat maps on 'Seatguru' among other similar sites so that they do not have that problem for my purchase, I must say, the payment was a delivery 'LATAM' no longer allows transfers or payments with debit cards like the classic 'CuentaRut', it asks you to use a credit card I used a virtual wallet called 'Latam Wallet' you can load money and then buy but it is quite tedious that do not use 'Webpay' with any Chilean card that is my experience and my opinion is more, I had to buy another ticket even initially I flew on another date, in 'Premium' but I had to reschedule the trip and when I did I was left in a seat without window and no, I didn't want to fly without a window even though it was 'Premium' so I bought it again on a date that had a window available and I haven't used the other ticket, I had to change the dates but... no I have been able to occupy
that fanatic, I wanted to fly on this plane but I wanted to fly out of the window and in 'Premium', all cool, cool, this episode like all my trips and adventures is presented by my books I am a writer, I tell stories and if you like it what I do you will love my books 'Cut the Ribbon', 'The Heroes of Time', 'Blessed Elegance' 'Iris, the Sound of the Conch Shells' are waiting for you firstname.lastname@example.org is my contact method is my email hahahaha on the flight, we saw the mountains near the 'Carretera Austral' , one of the legendary routes that runs through the southern zone of 'Chile' from 'Puerto Montt' to 'Villa O'Higgins' very beautiful landscapes, natural reserves without knowing it , from the plane I recorded the 'Nevado Queulat' on that mountain, on the other side is the snowdrift of the same name , a beautiful hanging glacier in one of the most beautiful national parks that I have visited , 'Parque Queulat', that is in the canal in the trip to 'Aysén', is a true beauty dark and I highly recommend you watch that video also if you haven't seen it each seat has headphones for personal use in these 'Premium Business' seats the connector for these headphones is next to the seat at first it may be a bit hard to find but you can and can enjoy it entertainment with noise-canceling headphones at one point I wanted to go to the bathroom and I took the opportunity to document it and show it for these seats, the bathroom is at the beginning when you enter the plane you have to close it so it doesn't appear as a bathroom available there it changes to a white light the bathroom is quite spacious I was curious because, although I had flown in these planes I did not remember what the bathrooms were like well, also with the pandemic I feel that it was in prehistory when I traveled, hahaha, I spent a lot, hahaha the bathroom has the typical: mirror, soap, sink, toilet paper as good details, there is a changing table for those traveling with babies and obviously there is the toilet although n or it has as much water as the usual ones the suction is done with the pressure difference, with the vacuum the sink has hot, warm and cold water you can regulate it with a button panel, it is very comfortable and practical one in the house should have something like that and then I had to go back to my seat instead of a door, the access to the bathroom is collapsible that can be a bit strange at first but it is like that and in my seat, I had wonderful views waiting for me because you have to keep looking at very beautiful things fortunately still we could see something although we were seeing more and more clouds I checked the forecast and a bad weather front was coming in the southern zone the plane was flying near 'Monte San Valentín' the highest mountain in 'Patagonia' between 'Laguna San Rafael ' which is on the other side beautiful place and glacier that I also showed on that trip to 'Aysén' that trip was very beautiful and, well, there is the lagoon on one side and on the other is the 'General Carrera' lake or 'Buenos Aires' that is seen from on this side of that lake are the famous 'Marble Chapels' or 'Marble Cathedrals' from 'Puerto Río Tranquilo' it is a huge, huge, huge lake we passed through the ice fields the eternal glaciers of this area of the 'Cordillera de Los Andes' although with the clouds we didn't see much the views on this trip are hazardous as the area has a lot of rain throughout the year, sometimes you see a lot sometimes you see little there are flights in which you can see 'Torres del Paine' in which you can see 'El Calafate', but in this case we will not see any of that there is another old flight of this same route, on an 'A320' where I showed some more things, that trip was almost all clear and the clouds can also enjoy it here they were the protagonists in the window in this area after making the descent and seeing many clouds we began to fly under them and we looked at the pampa of 'Patagonia' this area is what you see between 'Puerto Natales' and 'Punta Arenas' trip that I will show you later on a couple of buses I did several s entertaining trips in these vacations I will also show it as a blog with the episodes ordered chronologically and with a playlist as well ordered, well done and what we see is part of the legend those waters are the 'Strait of Magellan' because yes, 'Punta Arenas' is washed in the waters of the strait as if you needed something extra to make this trip more epic we have seen 'Santiago', the 'Cordillera de Los Andes' now the 'Strait of Magellan' within the views of the strait something remarkable it is the small 'Isla Magdalena' where there is a colony of penguins, you can go to see them by boat that navigation and visit is also on this 'Youtube' channel I have also shown it, I have gone here I share my trips and adventures as they have seen I love this issue of public transport and I'm always escaping somewhere , either within the city or making longer routes like this plane trip, some bus trips if you liked it, I invite you to you subscribe to join me on more adventures and that we continue to have a very good community of the 'Strait of Magellan' on one side we have the 'Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego' and on the other side we have the continent, where 'Punta Arenas' is ' something good about traveling on this side of the plane is the possibility of looking at the city the plane usually makes this turn before landing at the airport in the distance, with some clouds above, we see the city of 'Punta Arenas' capital of the 'Magallanes Region' What adventures await me? What things will I live there? they will have to wait for the following episodes the airport is not far from the city, it is about 20 km away in a sector called 'Chabunco' and with this the trip on the plane begins to end and the stay begins the vacations, the well-deserved vacations, the relaxation and break from routine that one sometimes needs, if one needs it (ambient sound) at the airport there was a 'C-130 Coulson' plane to fight forest fires this plane belongs to 'CONAF', in those days there was a fire in 'Timaukel' 'Tierra del Fuego' I had never seen such a plane beyond the 'Luchín' and the 'Supertanker' that we saw some time ago inside, the passengers began to disembark I stayed to do some photos and videos the passenger next to me took a photo of me and I also took a photo of him with his son, we had to take advantage of it I couldn't show the economic seats but on the return trip I have to travel back there so I also have to have a little patience to be able to see that part of the airport of 'Punta Arenas', we left in manga at the beginning you don't see much of the plane but later in the corridors to get to the baggage area there you can see the whole plane, very nice there was a small plane of ' Aerovías DAP', a 'Twin Otter' that had probably been working the route to 'Puerto Williams' here I made the cover photo, the cover video with all the vision of the 'Boeing 787 Dreamliner', a spectacular plane with the camera is a bit difficult but with my cell phone I was able to record myself and take a photo of that moment (ambient sound) hahaha very grateful to God, to life for being able to do all these beautiful things thanks also to you for tuning in later we had to wait for the bags , there were a lot of people, the flight had a lot of people, it was full and when you finish that, you go to the transport area there are car rental counters and taxis charge a fixed rate of 10,000 pesos, about 15 dollars regardless of the place in 'Punta Arenas' to which you go from 'Punta Arenas', that morning there were flights to or from 'Puerto Williams', 'Puerto Natales' 'Porvenir', 'Puerto Montt' and 'Santiago' there are other possible destinations as well: 'Concepción', 'Temuco', 'Coyhaique' but that's what there was at that time and that's all, it flew by, literally a huge hug, many greetings and blessings I hope you enjoyed a lot Bye, bye, bye!
