Starting Sept 9 Varig will serve MEX flight 8670 with an MD11 instead of 767. Excellent news, I can hardly wait to see that lovely bird in MEX!!!!

In other news it appears AF will not return to the 777 as they had planed on October. Schedule shows 744 in late Dec. Anybody has news about that?

Interesting news. Is Varig retiring its 767s? As they get 777s they replace MD-11s which then can replace 767s. So do the 767s go to domestic flights, new international flights, or are they being retired (I imagine some are old).

I guess that AF is having lots of sucess in MEX to warant use of a 747 in stead of the 777. Says good things about the MEX market.

Good news for RG, but here we go again... when will AM increase capacity to GRU, SCL, CDG, MAD?? When RG flies daily to MX), Mexico">MEX with 767-300 and soon MD11.... AM only flies 5x a week mainly with B767-200.

CDG... same thing another cheasy 767s compared to AF 772 and now 744.

MAD... IB with lots of flights with A340-3 and 600... and AM... what?? 767s LOL...

SCL.... LA daily flights with B767-300s, AM... 5x a week with another cheasy 767.... I wouldn't be surprised to see in the future LA upgrading the A340 to MX), Mexico">MEX.

When AM?? or MX??
