Today i was watching this argentinean tv gossip show INTRUSOS. And there, talking about Susana Gimenez they were saying that her new boyfriend is the vice president of U AIR and this company is almost in bankrupcy. In the show they mention a loan the uruguayan government gave to UAIR and that they are not paying salary. Is this all just gossip?

Yep! U Air stopped they operations some month ago - the two Fokker 100 are now back with TAM in full colors.

That's quite sad! Last June 2004 I was on my way to Assuncion via Ciudad Del Este and already inside my TAM Mercosur Fokker F100 at Curitiba when I took a picture of one of the U AIR F100's that was parked there. I wonder how civil aviation works at Uruguai?

Here we go again...

It's UAIR, a carrier that used to exist and was based in MVD. We are NOT talking about US Airways

edit: they had a couple of F-100s

They do a crazyness, choose debt for finance a new comer Low Cost Airline. But they forget some basic lessons from finance: debt needs interest and must be paid one day, it's not a perpetual public issuance. With bad results (loads was never higher than 55%), the equipment choosed was not the best for the south of Brazil (Tam mainly uses F100 on northeast routes were they are very appreciated by customers), and they start to fly on routes where competition is strongly established like GRU-MVD or without so much O&D market. And with 2 aircrafts they never could establish a hub or effective connections.
Also, Uruguay is well served with Pluna and some foreign carriers like Iberia, AA and RG.

New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
