As a Brazilian, I thank you very much for your kind words regarding Varig.
I am, myself, a big fan of Alitalia. One of my most tender memories is to travel with my granpa some 100km until Viracopos Airport to spot the Alitalia DC-10´s, which used to land over there some 20 years ago. It was just an extravaganza to watch such an increadible bird sitting alone in that huge tarmac.
The fastest way to become a millionaire in the airline business is to start as a billionaire.

thank you, but this constatation goes forward of simle "likeing". I think that is simply perfect, Varig has a wonderful cs and it is such a joy for me seeing new planes for such a glorious airline. I have never flied them, but who knows? I have a hope.

I remember the immaculate Varig DC-10's at LHR, I saw the first I think in 1978/79, I was watching aircraft land at LHR from my backyard with a telescope, and the first aircraft I focussed in on was one of these;

To tell you the truth, in my little 'corner' of the world,
one thing I have found since being a member here, are the number of airlines in the world!! I am still coming across 'new' ones in the A.net photo database, even just today. I had never heard of Varig until a few months ago, and have certainly never seen their aircraft, so it's very refreshing to be part of a world that goes beyond Qantas!!
