Varig Ceases NRT Ops; Begins MUC  
User currently offlinePPVRA From Brazil, joined Nov 2004, 8971 posts, RR: 39
Posted (8 years 10 months 2 weeks 3 days 19 hours ago) and read 6474 times:

Today (JAN 15th) is the first RG flight to MUC, a 3X weekly service on Sundays, Thursdays and Fridays. Flights will be GRU-MUC twice a week, on Sundays begining from GIG onwards to GRU and MUC.

They also have since DEC15th added 6 new daylight frequencies to MIA and 4 to JFK.

But it's also a sad day because it marks the day RG will suspend their traditional NRT services (although it's technically tomorrow, IIRC).

First flight to MUC will be operated by PP-VTI (up to now as Varig is facing serious shortage of aircraft) and as of Sat 14 at 18:30, Varig sold 4F, 10C and 266Y (overbooked on Y)

Also, RG CEO after talking to the New York judge, says that Varig will improve flights from Rio to the United States on june/july.

But they keep facing serious problems with their fleet (another 777-200ER is on ground, PP-VRF), and they keep without 2 772ER, 3 MD11 and 1 763 besides some, 733's and 735's. An agreement with Boeing has been made a couple weeks ago in order to put the M11's back to service on the next 30 days.

Sad, sad, sad to see that there will no longer be the proud VARIG flying accross the Pacific from LAX. Can you tell me if it is today that the last VARIG flight arrives into LAX from Japan, or is it till Monday? I just might go to the airport to see it.

If you can't pull from LAX, where STAR partner United has a hub, you can't pull from Tijuana, which has no pull to Japan.

The market was supposed to be GRU-NRT, not LAX-NRT, LAX - which itself is an interesting market for GRU - happened to be the stop enroute.
And about TIJ, don't Japanese companies have maquiladoras in the Tijuana area? Is there a cargo traffic between the Mexican side of the border and Japan? I suppose a TIJ - Japan flight would have been in the Mexican Government interest too.
Another question, is RG still flying to LAX?

Geez!! What a nightmare this is!! What other B777 is STD at the moment? BRB?

I heard Mexicana is willing to get a contract with AWAS for 3rd party mx in MEX for 14 Boeing 737-3/4/5s ex. RG as they are ending their leases and AWAS will take them back, will it happen? This is almost half of RG's B737, they currently have around 35 classic B737s.

Another question... why did RG ground it's EMB145 fleet??? Out from the 16, 11 are STD and 5 more have been taken by Brazil AF and from those STD 5 will be taken by Aerolitoral!!! What will happen to the other 6???

Maybe someday they will return.

I am sad as well. It was great to see their MD11s. Once they stopped flying here, we stopped seeing MD11s except for recently by Fed-EX and this summer by World. Soon they will return on regular pax service with Finnair.

Varig flights from NGO were always packed. Japan and well Asia lacks South American service. Maybe one of the Mexican carriers will venture into Japan and ofter a connection to South America. Or maybe LAN will venture this way.

I feel sorry for the large Brazillian population in this area. What used to be one stop to home, is now multi-stop, multi-day flights. Sat next a couple and their baby flying, NGO-HKG-ATH-MAD-GRU. But luckily both UA and AA serve Brazil and Japan, but unluckily every Brazillian has to get a transit visa to go home, that is one thing that killed the LAX-Japan service.

There's also the possibility of connecting through Germany, specifically through FRA, where you have LH and NH present. This would be most convenient for everyone immigration wise.

Anyway, I'm sad that RG has axed that route. Had they rerouted through somewhere else, like FRA or MUC, they just might have saved it. But I do have hopes that someday JJ could fill the void RG left at NRT.

No. The distance would be almost 10,000 nm, which is out of the reach of any aircraft RG is currently operating. I checked that with the Great Circle Mapper.

That is right. NRT-JFK-GRU.

But the thing that was killing RG was not loads but U.S. Homeland Security and new Customs and Immigration policies. I believe Brazil is not a Visa Waiver country and as a result all Brazillians have to get a transfer visa for the U.S. That process requires interviews with at a consulate or embassy. Not good for business.

BR did fly TPE-LAX-PTY but when CM started PTY-LAX, they dropped the route. I would doubt BR would return to PTY if via U.S./Canada airport, the (transit) visa problems wouldn't make the route profitable.
About LAN, they fly to PPT, but I don't know if they've any interest in extending that flight to NRT (or other major Japanese airport).

They have the same problem with M11 fleet. The judge can protect RG during the lease agreements, but when those lease matures, RG need to return the planes to lessors.

Varig return the EMB145 fleet due to the high cost of leasing, same as a bigger 733/735 during 2002/2003, so RG decided in favor of Boeing planes, bigger and could run all routes, bad decision IMO.
