LANChile, Buenos Aires,Santiago,Easter Island,Tahiti

LANChile. I made 5 flights with LANChile: Buenos Aires-Santiago-Easter Island-Tahiti and return trip Punta Arenas-Mount Pleasant (Falklands) (1997/98). No special preps apart from BsAs-Santiago where they insisted on a plastic bag. They accepted bike + 15kg without argument on all these sectors. Santiago airport is about 22km from city centre. Riding most of it on very busy roads is unavoidable. Once you have gone a short distance south on the ring road, you have a choice of Calle San Pablo and the main dual carriageway. Having tried both, I recommend the latter as it has a hard shoulder much of the way and doesn't have traffic lights and bus stops on every block.
