@ghimlay .@TAMairlines will reconfigure first three A350s with economy plus seats by early-2017.

@ghimlay .@tamairlines’ 4th A350 (delivery around June) will have new LATAM livery, but it might not be the first aircraft to have the new colours.

@yfreemark Interesting element of LA’s proposed expenditure plan: Sepulveda Pass would get a busway in first 15 years, rail in second 15 years.
