In one month Varig will take the new delivery: a newest Boeing 777-200ER. Varig has ordered 4 Boeing 777-200ER.
I think that soon Varig will need to replace the Boeing 747-300, do you think that the Boeing 777-300 will be a good aircraft for the Varig fleet? ¿Maybe the 777-300ER?

I believe the MD-11 still works fine for
VARIG and is still considered new and quite
economical. I don't think they would be
replaced with B-777's any time soon.
The MD-11s would be rather complemented
Your theory would be possible only if
Boeing is taking "back" VARIG's MD-11's
towards payments for 777's, or if they have
found someone paying top Dollars for the
I don't think Fedex would be taking them
at a good price for VARIG.
