Latam (airline)

Argentina’s import restrictions are a headache for many companies. Now it appears that Lan, the Chilean airline that has recently merged with Brazil’s Tam is having trouble importing a new aeroplane from its South American neighbour. The upshot? Lan is talking about having to cut services on certain routes out of Buenos Aires city airport as a result. 

They say that breaking up is hard to do. But in the world of corporate mergers and acquisitions, getting together can be just as difficult. That’s if the customer experience at Chilean-Brazilian carrier Latam is anything to go by.

As readers will recall, Latam is the new airline created by the combination of Chile’s Lan and Brazil’s Tam in a deal that closed last month.
