LAN Peru announced that it will suspend operations out of San Francisco International Airport effective April 1, 2014, after nearly four years of service there. The last flight departing San Francisco to Lima will be on March 29, 2014.

In related news, the carrier said it will increase flights to 14 frequencies per week between Los Angeles and Lima using Boeing 787 aircraft.

That's not good news for me. We've been taking these non-stop flights from SFO since they started a few years go. Last year we took a late night flight and landed in Lima in the morning, which was a nice change from arriving at 1:30 a.m. Looks like now we go to back to leaving from LAX, after the one hour flight from SFO. Hope the schedules are flexible. Thanks for the info.

If I can't do it non-stop from SFO then I'm going to try Delta (SFO --> ATL --> LIM) to avoid LAX.

It's quite a detour. You'll be quicker via LAX.

Not really, if you look at the geography. Peru is as far east as the Atlantic seaboard and Atlanta is far south of the Pacific NW. To get to LAX you have to go directly south rather than east towards Peru which adds to the distance. It is about the same either way.
