Hi

A friend of mine just flew PU from GRU to MVD, and she told me they were charging for meals on board. I had read in this forum they were also charging for checked baggage....

Is PU becoming an LCC? It sure seems to act like one......or so it seems to me.

Any thoughts?

These days that does not really mean its turning into a LCC.

US, AA etc charge for luggage and food on board.

If you compare Pluna to the US carriers it certainly does not mean PU is a LCC. In Europe even IB and BA now charges for onboard food.

As an option, TAM offers 2-class full service on GRU-MVD.

No it does not, I work for them and have not heard anything about this. They have reduced in flight catering for Euro flights under 2 hours 30, but do not charge for food or drinks (Including Alcohol)

This is even worse, because it means you have no food available/served during the flight.
