Does anyone see Gol becoming the WN or Ryan Air of South America; they already are for Brazil? I would love to see an airline like GOl connect all of South America that way, I really think it could be an amazing thing. Will other countries in South America allow that to happen?
Yeah, I was going to ask about this. If they fly to CCS how will they do it. Seems like Varig will start flying to CCS next week via Manaus. Can the 73G fly non-stop from GRU to CCS? Is it withing GOL's policy?
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

You can wait and will see in the near future Gol as the Ryanair of South America. They have huge plans for more flights and their fleet will be 2x bigger than nowadays.

They can block, but cannot avoid Gol plans. Brazil is a natural hub for South America, and due to the size of the country, Gol could be a strong player at POA (taking care of Argentina, Uruguay and Chile), IGU (Paraguay/Bolivia), BSB (Peru), MAO (Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador) and BEL/MCP among others. Their domestic network is a strong advantage among other airlines.

Yes, it could, but i believe it will be BOG from GIG and CCS from GRU, both with stop at MAO (so you can fly GIG-MAO MAO-CCS). Their kind of service it's not good for a 6 hours flight.
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Quoting Brasuca (Reply 6): LIM via MAO does make sense because we're clearly seeing GOL overhanging MAO as one hub prominent airport:
from LIM to CCS, BOG, MEX, MIA and Brazilian northern cities via MAO.
Isn't MAO too far east if someone travelling between LIM and MIA, MEX, BOG?
Is there that much traffic between LIM and Brazilian northern cities (BEL, SLZ, FOR, NAT, REC, SSA)?
