  • LATAM Brazil

Starting this month LATAM Brazil will make operational changes to its South African flights by replacing a Boeing 767-300ER with a newer Airbus A350-900XWB. Currently, LATAM Airlines are the only Latin American airline company offering direct flights between Brazil and the African continent. LATAM Brasil started flying from Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo to O. R. Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg in 2016. With the economic recovery in Brazil doing better than expected, the commercial aviation market is expecting a larger demand for flights than the previously anticipated. Passenger numbers on the Sao Paulo-Johannesburg route have risen to such a degree that LATAM Brasil has decided to put one of its larger Airbus A350s on the route adding a further 129 seats to the flight.



  • Pizza Hut

Yum Brands is planning to trim the number of Pizza Hut restaurants in the United States by about 500 locations, even as the brand continues to grow internationally.  The company said the closures will allow it to focus more on food delivery and carryout by weeding out lesser-performing sit-down restaurants. There are nearly 7,500 Pizza Huts in the U.S., of which 6,100 are traditional restaurants and 1,350 are express units, which predominantly handle carryout and delivery. Delivery-oriented restaurants that respond to orders generated by apps — in some cases facilities that do nothing but deliver food from a central location — are a growth trend in the restaurant industry.  The number of U.S. Pizza Hut locations would drop to about 7,000 over the next two years. The Pizza Hut brand is growing at a rapid pace outside the U.S., and doing well. Nearly half of the brand’s sales are in the U.S., with China — at No. 2, with 17% of the total — expanding rapidly. Other sales-growth regions for the pizza chain include Asia outside of China, Europe (except for Spain and Portugal) and Latin America (including Spain and Portugal).
