Is this a response to the VARIG situation? I can only assume so, but I may be wrong.

Cheers,

Sorry feelow but you are wrong. TAM decided to expand its international operations independent of VARIG. TAM will fly to more intl. destinations with or without VARIG.

JJMNGR, and probably we can wait to see TAM very soon in FRA and LAX. The best Tam receive from Varig situation is the access to their international flights information. I believe Tam can use the numbers and information (although it's not so complete) for their future plans.
Good to see JJ going to LHR.

Have JJ been to FRA before then ??

Also anyone know if JJ are expanding their fleet to more models...
I know they have 330's but are the expecting 340's ? or 777's ?

Lipe,

I can´t post information before it really turns as public information due to strategy and also because TAM stokes in the market. This is something dangerous and every executive in the company is aware of its consequences.

What I am going to post right now is my personal thoughts ok?

FRA is going to depend on RG situation. If they survive, I doubt TAM will return to FRA. Seems in Europe, MIL and MAD are most likelly to become first.

I also think LAX could be good but I think JFK deserves 02 flights a day before any decision to go to LAX.

Abraço,

Richard

Yes, they drop FRA IIRC, in 2001. Bad results just because Tam does not offer at that time, connections out of FRA, and Varig was in a better situation (with two daily flights to GIG and GRU).

Quoting BHXDTW (Reply 6):

As a temporary measure we probably can see A340's or 777's at Tam (and only if Varig really ground all their ops), but i believe they will try to obtain more A330's.

Quoting JJMNGR (Reply 7):

I respect (SOX, CVM and NYSE are really strong rules!) your comments. And agree 100% that JFK will receive the second flight (and it's a lot easier as Tam could use the 2 planes used for the night flight like MIA).
In terms of Europe, i still believe FRA will be the next Tam destination due to the strong business market, bigger than MAD or even MXP. And for MAD, the new international player BRA will start GIG-MAD and GRU-MAD very soon.

Would be great to see some A340's in the future, hopefuly Airbus will offer them some 343's or 346's at a great price  Smile

They're going to be needing quite a few more Airbus widebodies; will they look at A340s, I wonder? I guess they'll have to. Maybe Airbus will find homes for the A340s they couldn't place with QR or EK; they wouldn't necessarily need to take them as -600s - perhaps A340-500s or even A330-200s.

All the best to them; it'll be good to see TAM flying into LHR. Hopefully, they can establish a hub at GRU for regional flights.

Thering, welcome to A.Net !

In fact CDG is already a 2x daily flight for Tam (one weekly frequency is GRU-REC-CDG).

Tank you!
Oh, How is that possible?
of their 9 A330-200:
2 are leased for other company (Air China if i'm not wrong)
2 operates GRU/JFK
3 operates GRU/MIA
so, there is only 2 left for GRU/CDG.
The only way it could have two daily frequencys would bee having two flights during the day. That's what happen?

3 stay with Etihad

As of September it will be:
2 operate GRU-MIA-GRU (1x per week with stop in SSA)
2 operate GRU-JFK-GRU-EZE-GRU
2 operate GRU-SCL-GRU-CDG-GRU (1x per week with stop in REC)

Nowadays:

2 runs GRU-MIA (the distance allows 2 overnight/2 daily light), 4 runs GRU-CDG, only one GRU-JFK (the route runs GRU-JFK nowadays as a daily-light service while JFK-GRU is a overnight flight). During the day, Tam offer daily light service to SCL (using one of the CDG A332 without first class) and with the other runs GRU-REC-GRU.
In fact they keep three aircrafts with Etihad (and not Air China), under wet-lease, that should be returned during the next 90 days to TAM. With one TAM will turn GRU-JFK as a overnight flight both ways, and the other two to the new service to London (LHR)

If you have any doubt, don't hesitate in ask again.
