Panrotas is reporting that AF-KLM will be discussing with JJ the future of their codeshare, clainimg that they need to "modernize" the agreement.

Currently, JJ an AF do not codeshare on transcontinental flights. AF management expressed their opininon that the current market demands lower fares and better connecting options, therefore they intend instead to reach an agreement with GOL and use GIG as their connecting hub (market that is served by AF's B744).

Plans for GRU were also brielfy mentioned: AF is aiming for two daily CDG-GRU flights within two years time.

Very good news for GOL and especially for GIG.

Question: Will the AF-JJ codeshare also end for flights within France?

Cheers

Hi VRA

I believe that AF is now seeing the real threat JJ poses as another strong competitor and maybe has decided to discontinue their agreement as JJ has built a loyal clientele in the GRU/CDG route.

Looks like feeding JJ´s flights with their own passengers might feel like feeding the enemy to make it grow, and that could be dangerous, know what I mean?

I bet on the end of the agreement in no time!

Abraços

In fact good news for GIG !
I strong think that AF will decide to improve relationship with GOL as Tam is at the same time, an important partner of AA and a strong player on GRU-CDG. I dont believe AF will introduce a second daily GRU-CDG without a good partnership at GRU (they could intend to face JJ competition).
GIG has some important facts for AF: They have no competitors non-stop (RG will offer GIG-GRU-CDG product but need to offer such flight as a connecting flight for LHR, MAD, MIA and JFK flights), they have a strong brand on Rio's market, a good product with their best lounge and equipment (a 744 with NEV concept) and competitive prices. Gol providing connections from/to GIG probably takes AF to offer a new flight GIG-CDG as nowadays the 744 gets a 92% load (almost 100% on biz class).

PS: Gol operations is at least 400% larger on GIG than GRU.

Rgds,
Felipe

Would this have anything to do with JJ applying for more frequencies on the routes to CDG?

Also, this shows that JJ is having a huge bent towards OneWorld/AA (whatever you might want to put there  Silly )

Any of my brazilian friends are welcomed to enlighten me on this issue. Big grin

P.S.: When will TAM take delivery of the remaining A330 to fly these routes?

Quoting LipeGIG (Reply 2):

Correct. And note that GOL has just made an agreement with Sky partner Copa. It shows that GOL is getting very close to Sky...

However, it is important to note that AF-JJ codeshare for domestic connections will continue in AF flights CDG-GRU. GOL agreement is specifically for AF's GIG flights.

Quoting MD11junkie (Reply 3):

Yes. JJ wants to increase flights GRU-CDG from 14 weekly to 17-18 weekly in 2006 (3-4 additional daylight flights).

Yes, especially because AA is essential for JJ in the US market.

In October, ready to start operations GRU-JFK.

Rgs,

Remember that the A330 was flying with Etihad on a wet-lease agreement, so it's not a delivery from Airbus... unlike the A320 that arrived today for JJ  Wink

PPVRA, JJ will receive a brand new A332 from Airbus. They have received back one of their A332 and keep 3 on Wetlease. As per JJMNGR info, all will be received back on the next 2 years (one will be used to turn GRU-JFK a daily flight). Two will probably runs a new route on 2006 or 2007.

Correct. Also they probably will use one of the two A332 parked during the day at CDG to run a CDG-REC-GRU flight (nowadays JJ offer a GRU-REC-GRU so they probably continue the flight to CDG while the aircraft from CDG will run the REC-GRU leg). This is a way to introduce more flights and also, to get the brazilian northeast market nowadays almost 100% on TP hands (planes!)

LipeGIG,

I though JJ would get one back so that they can make JFK daily? Or is the one arriving now the new one and later the one with Etihad?

Cheers

Hi PPVRA!
The info i get is that one new A332 will be received to run the new flight and to turn the flight daily another one, back from Etihad, will be added to its fleet. The flight will become daily only on 2006 (febr/06 i think)
What do you think to prepare the brazilian meeting on september-05 ?

Rgds,
Felipe
