Congratulations to TAM on their new bird. Can't wait to see her airborne! What route will it initially be deployed on?

I've heard it will replace the A340-500 on the GRU-FRA route and will also be deployed to GRU-CDG.

I believe the A340-500 will be transferred to GRU-MXP?

Finally a fleet of TAM airplanes from Seattle not Europe. Those 777-300ER's will be great flagships for TAM and ambassadors for Brazil.

Well there goes another MD-11 pax operator  Sad The 77W will sure look good in their livery. What customer code does TAM have? Will the Aircraft be fitted with 9 or 10 abreast Y seating?

I believe the MD-11's will be sticking with the TAM fleet for at least the next year or two.

No, they're scheduled for conversion.

The customer code is 2W. It seems it will be 10-abreast. 7F/56C/302Y, apparently.

As if TAM´s fleet consists of European aircrafts only.

That will be tight.    But I can´t wait until it is finally flying.  Smile

10 a breast isn't all thaaaat bad. Emirates pull it off quite comfortably in their 77W's. Still not ideal though.

Being on a ten-abreast 777 many times, I will never fly on such a configuration for more than couple of hours. Regardless of seat pitch, 10-abreast on 777, 9-abreast on Airbus widebodies, and 8-abreast 767 suck period. End of story. Any airline with these config on where I will be going will not be getting any of my business.

How many times have I read that about an MD-11 in the past five years.  Sad

It's too bad KL has not been interested in adding more to their fleet.

I believe they were supposed to be going to Aeroflot Cargo, correct?

However with the recent issue concerning the Russian government and the acceptance of the MD-11F fleet I wonder if they will instead end up with Fed Ex or UPS like many of the other ex-Brazilian MD-11's.

That's a magnificent aircraft and it will look great in the "new" JJ colors.
I hope I'll be flying on it next year.
Congrats!

KLM 2 x B77Ws also have 10 abreast. However, in terms of configuration, what a world of difference if compared with KL B77W. I just arrived in GRU with KL B77W and the configuration is the opposite, only 35 C seats the rest Y with more than 400 seats in total...but plane was FULL to the nose. I was on seat 1J and C class had 2 downgrades...

On the other hand, TAM, with more planes, and more passengers, I really dont know how they will handle the sitiuation in terms of ground service. TAM ticket office in GRU is understaffed and the situation is becoming critical, with 1h waiting time becoming normal for a simple service of changing a ticket....

Rgs,

Wait!!! Which airbus widebodies (other than the A380) have that many abreasts? I mean isn't the A330/340 all 8 abreast? And all B767 are 7 abreast?

Is it the charters that you are talking about?
