I know that some years back intercont flights for Sao Paulo were moved from VCP to GRU. When was that? And why? I mean, I know that VCP is a ridiculous 130 kms from Sao Paulo city center, but was it that GRU did not exist before or what other reasons were there?

no, no clue why they stopped (GRU-)FRA-ZRH-FRA(-GRU)... too bad, as I was often at the airport to see them, beautiful airplane/livery!!!!
thanks for the screen name comment, hmmm.. maybe I should start an airline to serve ZRH-GRU(-GIG)?? As of today, from next summer on there are no confirmed flights between Switzerland and South America anymore :-(
