Hi all,

I have discovered in a website that VRG Linhas Aereas will add many Boeing 767-300 from former airlines that actually are operating this aircraft.

I don't know where are the Varig Boeing 767-300 that operated with the Brazilian flag carrier until its demise but sounds interesting to know that:

1. Will add a pair of Boeing 767-300 from Air Canada (C-GGMX and C-GHPD)

2. Will add a Boeing 767-300 from Air Madagascar (5R-MFF)

3. Will add a Boeing 767-300 from Alitalia (I-DEIB)

4. Will add a Boeing 767-300 from Arke Fly (PH-AHQ)

5. Will add a Boeing 767-300 from El Al Israel Airlines (4X-EAJ). The Israeli airline will add at the same time a Boeing 767-300 from Kenya Airways (5Y-KQQ).

6. Will add a Boeing 767-300 from LAN Airlines (CC-CIO)

7. Will add a Boeing 767-200 from Malev (HA-LHA)

All these new aircrafts will join the Brazilian airline in a few weeks. Counting seven new aircrafts (on lease from ILFC, GECAS, AWAS,...??) with the six that now are flying under the VRG Linhas Aereas will count until 13 aircrafts.

Any chance to add the 4 Gulf Air actually stored at Dublin?

What's your opinion?

Regards,

Gerard

I was under the impression that reg would be the former PH-MCV.

I don't know if Varig will keep on ordering more 767s as I have it from a very good source that a new wide-body order is to be announced pretty soon with new planes coming from the other side of the Atlantic - though some will come from the Americas too  Smile Here's a little preview of things to come...

A330-200


A350-800


787-800

Of course, right now, everything still quite and nobody knows a thing  Smile

The A330 in VARIG colors looks really great!! Hope that turns out to be true!!!

However, it´s still hard to believe that GOL would consider the acquisition of airbus jets.

Why ? In England Easyjet started with an all B737 fleet and have now changed to all Airbus, their decision on change was based on economics of the aircraft and a better deal from Airbus.

Just because GOL operate B737's doesn't mean to say that they might not opt for Airbus on long haul dependant on what deals are available and maybe swing on the short haul in the future, never say never.

I agree that it´s quite possible for GOL and VARIG get some airbus jets to join their fleet. What I meant is that I think it is unlikely for GOL to renew such a "young" B737 fleet in the near run. And I assumed that this strategy would be applied for VARIG as well, cause they are managed by the same team.

I´ll probably wrong, and I hope I´m wrong. I´ll be very glad to see some A330´s flying for others Brazilian carriers besides TAM.

Rgds,

Joao

A lot of airlines buy significant fleet renewals much younger these days, its a status symbol to possess a young fleet, look at Ryanair for example, even some of the B737800s (qty 5) that Varig are getting are ex Ryanair, their policy of renewal is to keep pace with fuel economics, the manufacturers are always tweaking things for better fuel consumption, upgraded interiors etc.

The market demands young aircraft, there is nothing worse than getting on a grubby wreck of an aircraft, especially
if you are flying lets say for more than two hours.

Ryanair, are looking at another large order soon and they are still taking delivery of a lot of new aircraft.

That makes sense. Hope all major carriers in Brazil follow Ryanair strategy of renewing its fleet.

TAM´s F-100 fleet is (was?) an example.

Well, skyliner-aviation reported last week, that at least one B767 was ferried from DUB back to AUH- anyone knows more?

Thats not good... I think these aircraft will stay in their previous configurations? well, imagine all the diefferent galleys, seats etc.- what a confusion! Arkefly B767 have a 3-class config.; Alitalia B767 only 2-class. What a chaos...

The new owners of Varig have been quoted as stating that all of the B767's will have a new interior at a cost of over $ 1 million per aircraft to configure them equally. But this can only start to happen after all the 13 aircraft have been delivered, so that one machine at a time can be taken out of service for the mods.

There is a B767-300 in (new) Varig colors in Amsterdam @ KLM Maintenance paintshop.

It's a former ArkeFly aircraft (PH-MCV).
