One of the trips we are looking at ends in Lima Peru. As this is a standard tour as part of the Miami-Miami (around South America), I assume that Regent has this pretty much organized. Does anyone know or remember (if having done this tour) what airlines Regent used for the flights back from Lima to the West Coast ?
Last December we flew from Buenos Aires to Los Angeles in business class using a Regent air deviation. The flights were on LAN, including a very nice nonstop flight from Lima to Los Angeles.

Last year we returned post-cruise from Lima to SFO non-stop on LAN. Very nice. Good service. Be prepared, most SA to North America flights are late nite departures out of Lima. The airport was an absolute zoo!!
We flew back from Lima to Phoenix via Atlanta on Delta in Jan 2011, we used Regent business class upgrade with a deviation. Tried to go through LA, no luck. No idea if they still use Delta or not, you'd have to get your TA to check which airlines they now use. You are correct, ALL departures out of Lima to the US leave approx 1 am. Recommend booking a day room at the airport Ramada, it's worth it.
