Gol yesterday detailed its fleet plan for Varig in conjunction with its first-quarter earnings release (see story above). It said the Varig fleet, which will continue to operate independently of the new parent company, will comprise 14 737-300s and two 767-300ERs at the end of the current quarter.

By year end Varig will operate nine 737-300s, five 737-800s and eight 767-300ERs. The 737-300s will be phased out by 2009, when Varig is scheduled to fly eight 737-700s, nine 737-800s and 16 767-300ERs.

By 2012 it will operate 14, 15 and 22 of the respective types. Gol said Varig "will provide an attractive service offering to business travelers in the domestic market and offer new services to high-traffic destinations in South America, Europe and North America."

I speculate a 767 order is in the works here.... Interesting, how this bird continues to find success....

Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

I would absolutely love to think that a 767 order is in the works, and I would like to see the production last as long as possible. But, somehow, I doubt that VARIG will order new 767s from Boeing. These new aircraft will probably be bought from other airlines phasing out the 767-300ER.
