Wow! That would be good! It would not interfere with Avianca, but rather complement networks in latin America.
Let us not forget the soon to start up Wayra of Peru and a new Ecuatorian airline that will have F100 fleets.

Ok, so I just read on http://www.folha.com.br that RG is to decide on an investor within 8 days... Efromovich is one in the list, however, the Portuguese group Pestana is a favorite. I still think Efromovich has a good chance though, he is Brazilian which means he can invest/buy more than a 20% stake in Varig.
Let's hope something happens soon and it alleviates RG's financial conditions!

Personally i think anyone who buys into RG is wasting money and time on a huge scale.
And if (and thats a big if) they are successfull in turning the company around,it will take a very long time to make money,if you take into account there massive debt and urgent fleet renewal.
I just think it would be better for RG to go under and let JJ take over there intl destinations,but obviously they do not have enough metal to do that,but one can only hope,as they are without doubt Brazils premier airline.

This could be great for AV , can you imagine VARIG with the colors like AV but in blue and the sun at the tail .Also , this could means that Avianca would have a base of planes like Varig 737 ,767 ,and 777
now , talking about AV :
any other planes with the new colors ?
Are they going to get another 767 ,so they can replace the one that hit the LAN 767 ?

I think that with such huge debt, Varig's priority won't be the livery. I think that it's great as it anyway. It is good that there will be a larger base of airplanes.
AV will get more planes this year: 10 F100s, 2 MD83s, a 757 and 2 767s. The one that collided with the LAN one is expected to be on service again shortly as the damage is not serious.
