LATAM also requires that fewer flight attendants fly and get approval

LATAM also requires that fewer flight attendants fly and get approval

However, another Brazilian airline has asked the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) for a special permit for flights with fewer flight attendants.


The new request came from LATAM Brasil, the only one of three major Brazilian airlines that has not yet asked ANAC for permission to work with fewer flight attendants than expected. The order seeks to relax the rule that there must be a flight attendant for every 50 seats on an aircraft.

As a result, LATAM Brasil always works with four flight attendants on the Airbus A320, which is the backbone of the company, which is configured for 174 or 180 seats. However, due to the large number of crew leave due to the omicron variant of coronavirus and H3N2 influenza syndrome, Latam and his competitors requested an exception.

With ANAC approval, LATAM will be able to fly the A320 with only three flight attendants, as long as they do not exceed 150 passengers on low-crew flights.

a Azul and GOL have already adopted this measure, the first to operate with hosts only on Embraer E195 jet flights with 100 passengers or less.
