We all know that TAM has taken a very conservative approach to growth. I believe they have 4 777-300's in service now. I believe 4 more are coming. (correct ?) and more A330's? I also recall interest in the A350.
So where are all these aircraft going?
The 2 A340's are staying or leaving? What do they use the 767's for?
As it seems like they will switch to One World, where will they potentially going in 10 years?
Are they also upgrading the angled seats in business?
The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

About the 2 A345, a colleague saw one of them parked at TLS and the A330 is doing the GRU-MXP now.
Also there's a rumor that a 77W will arrive at CDG in lieu of the A330: mechanics here are receiving the 77W training while it has been an A330 station for a while now.
If they enter OW, for Europe they should think about using MAD hub instead of FRA and put a daily 77W GRU-MAD and also a daily 77W GIG-MAD...though I don't like the choice it seems the most efficient for JJ in the future

Next year, TAM plans on deploying its four new B77Ws on existing A330 operated flights to the U.S. By freeing up some A330s, TAM can open new routes to the U.S. and increase capacity on certain regional routes in South America, i.e. GRU-BOG, GRU-LIM, GRU-SCL, etc.

Quoting scouseflyer (Reply 3): I beleive that they've got 22 (?) A350s on order and more B777s to come too. I wonder if it's time for some A380s for the larger routes to Europe?
Remember that LAN and TAM plan on operating certain routes between Brazil and Europe together. However, within the next ten years, LAN and TAM may double their fleet size and plan on opening routes to Asia and Africa.
Quote: Lan Airlines SA, Latin America’s largest airline by market value, and Brazil’s Tam SA may double their fleet and start flying to Asia in the next 10 years, said Tam’s Vice President, Mauricio Amaro, in an interview with El Mercurio.
Amaro said that in the next decade “is feasible to double our fleet in that period to 450 or 500 airplanes. And is also probable that we start flying to Asia, something that’s not possible today,” Santiago-based newspaper El Mercurio reported.
