so, i have been coming to brazil for years now and the same amazing voice of a woman has been making the announcements at gig for years. now i hear her at gru and congoinhas (sp?)

is it the same lady or have the brazilians found more than one person with the same gravely voice? shes amazing--long live the brazilian airport announcer! i th

also, have you all heard about the fog at gru this am? i was on a lufthansa flight from fra to gru and we were forced to land at campinas. when we landed there was a BA,AA,RG,UA and avianca all waiting for the fog to lift at gru. news here said it was not weather but the brazilian air traffic controlers making trouble. it was awful. had to take a taxi to congonihas to get a gol flight to rio.

You were unlucky. In Rio i noticed 4 JJ A332 + M11, 2 AA, AZ, IB, TA, CM, DL from ATL, AF 77W, LP and some A320 and 737/73G. And TAM for example allows pax to Rio to leave the plane at GIG. Some airlines like AZ faced some bad time because the crew exceed their journey and they need to bring a new crew from São Paulo in order to fly the plane. It arrive at GRU 12 hours delayed. Others like AA, AF, CM, DL and IB took advantage of the fact they run flights from GIG and could take care of their pax.

It's usual on autumn, but not that early. The problem has been increased by improvements on GRU runways which does not allow the use of 600m and due to this, the ILS system is not working. Will be very usual during the next 2 months to see GIG and VCP with such flights.

Meanwhile the lady is Iris Lettieri, there is a website with her voice and history : http://www.irislettieri.com.br/

Hahahahaha....I always thought that voice sounded like the computer on one of the episodes of Star Trek. There's an episode where the computer goes wacko and gets kinda "fresh" calling Captain Kirk "dear". That was a great question and I never would have thought to have asked about that in here. Thanks Lipe. You always seem to have the answers!!

I always thought that that's what Astrid Gilberto's speaking voice would be like.

Ahh...her voice is unforgettable, no wonder she is a star icon! Her pronunciation of Curitiba is my favorite.

Darn! I'm flying into GIG on Friday on AF 442, is GIG also plagued by fog like GRU this time of year?

Obrigado Felipe!

i love when she says "curitiba" too but my fav is when she says "ultima chmada" or as i would hear in english OOOH--CHE--MA SHA--MA--DAAA

she is quite beautiful. i always imagined an old lady sitting in a room at GIG with a strong coffee, filterless cigarette and a microphone!

is her voice nationwide? did they have it digitized?

what a great idea to build a brand.

You guys like the voice?! I always hated her voice... Still, I have to admit it wouldn't be quite the same without her. Then again, it's time to move on and I wouldn't mind if São Paulo/Rio got the same voice used in Salvador.

Happy Landings!

SAOAP,

i can understand why you hated it if you lived here all your life, but for a repeat visitor and a brazil-file (like me), she is a warm and wonderful reminder that i have landed in brazil!

i wonder if i can hire her to do my answering machine at home in nyc!

cheers

No problem, both runways are running, ILS cat II working and AF pilots always land ! In four years only one time they decided to fly to GRU because of severe weather in Rio. GIG take the advantage to be a sea level airport.

Wow... for me the best is the "Now Boarding"

Quoting VC10er (Reply 8):

Yes, she have an agreement with Infraero, in up to 30 days a new flight become recorded by her and the info is added on Infraero systems. She's the voice for the main Brazilian Airports.

Me too (now NYC is my home town) ... and even better to announce "Flight XYZ to Rio de Janeiro.. now boarding... " Dreams...

There was a story on Iris on National Public Radio in the US recently.

You can listen to her lovely growl at:
