Fokker100s in full Portugalia cs are often seen at Paris Orly on TP flights , make me wonder , if these Fokkers and eventually the EMB145s of now owned by Air Portugal , Portugalia wil be repainted in full TP cs.

Also has TP any plan to replace these Fokkers and EMB145s by ERJs or CRJs ?

Thanks for all answers.

Portugalia is to be operated as a seperate company, owned by the TAP Group. There are no immediate plans to replace their Fokker 100's but I fully expect to see an order for larger EMB's in the distant future.

In a very distant future, maybe. I believe Fernando Pinto's comment was "We've paid for them, we intend to use them for as long as we can". Also, TP just finished hiring a bunch of new pilots in order to increase utilization of these airplanes. If they had any plans to replace them in the near future, they wouldn't have invested so much on hiring new F100 pilots.
