With TAM's 8 777 (4 on the way) is TAM thinking 787 or A350 in the future? Have they thought of the role of an A380 or even dare I say a 747-800i ?
Imagine a great Brazilian carrier, part of StarAlliance, from NRT or China or Moscow non-stop!

TAM ordered 22 A350s. They ordered the original verision, and I believe they were later converted to the XWB.

Then why the 8 777's? And they tout them so much! Also, is GRU and NRT the 2 most major unconnectable citites?

The 77W are large lift airplanes TAM can get today, not wait for another half decade till the A350 arrive in large numbers.

Also unless TAM later opts form the A350-1000, the 77W is larger aircraft seating 365 while the A350-900 will only be around ~300, and todays A330s are in the low 200s.

Actually, JJ will have a fleet of 10 77W by 2013. They will be used in routes that require the capacity. Running multiple flights in the same city pairs is not always attractive, since all intercontinental flights leave and arrive during the same periods.

I guess they are.

TAM has 10 a359's and 12 a358's on order. So indeed, the 77W's are much bigger than those aircraft.

I guess the days with 3X JJ A332 @CDG are numbered....
I see well one 77W replacing 2XA332 on GRU-CDG and keeping one A332 for GIG-CDG
