Varig & TAM Current Fleet

Tue Nov 04, 2003 3:10 pm

I'm looking for info on Varig and TAM's Current fleet... Varig's website have very little information.. and TAM has no information at all.. does TAM continues to fly the Fokker F-100?

At least on 3 October and 28 October they still did - on the first date I flew on a JJ F100 from GRU to VCP, on the second date I still saw some standing at GRU loading passengers.

Not sure about the numbers (I'll have to find the TAM Inflight Magazine again) but they currently operate F100, A319, A320 and A330-200s.

Varig, according to their Inflight Magazine Icaro Brazil (Septemer Issue), operates 2 777-200, 6 767-300, 6 767-200, 2 737-800, 3 737-700, 14 737-500, 30 737-300, 4 737-200, 14 MD11 and 15 ERJ-145.

Are those numbers correct???

Also, RG is soon to receive +2 777-200, bringing to a total of 4.

Forgot to mention they are going to receive 3 ex-SWISS MD-11s and 2 777 that were supposed to go to "kaliffa", I guess! That totals 93 aircraft!

I know this is slightly beside the topic - but is there anything new on the merger of the two? Is it going ahead, or is it cancelled - or is it still in the definite maybe column?

I know that the 777's will be used on the JFK route.

Now, where will this 3 M-11 be flying to??? Are they replacing any 767's that my be leaving RG's fleet???

Can anyone clarify this???
