I'm not sure, but I think that Swiss will pull out of Brazil (again: I'M NOT SURE
), so, if the MD
-11 depends of the Brazil's routes, they are probably gone.
I've heard here in Brazil and also here in A.net Forum that Swiss will end their flights by next summer. If it happens, there will be no direct flights between Brazil and Switzerland, and I don't think that VARIG will get this route (GRU
) due to its awful economic situation. It would be great if Varig did it like until 1999 (I don't know exactly the right year that VARIG stopped serving Switzerland), and I think that the flights would be operated by MD
