That's true Donder10.

Brazil routes represented about 20% of TAP's 2003 revenue and more than 500.000 passengers used TAP on Brazil routes.

Good for them, That is a major convenience! Flying from the US you have to fly to SP or RIO then to Natal which is a flight from hell!! Natal is very beautiful! If you go make sure you rent a dune buggy for one day it's awesome!

TAM will have MIA-SSA flight, which makes the time of flight from US to Brazil much shorter. I aggree that's very bad not to have flights such as that one from MAO to US that RG had.
I think that it was route that could be very important to RG or any other airline that operates this flight. Many people from North and Northeast of Brazil need daily flights to US and Europe, such some american and europeans need flights to those regions. TAP did a great thing! Now, I hope TAM to do the same on SSA-MIA

I agree, a lot of time gets wasted if you have to fly to SP then back up to the north. Natal is so beautiful, that had to be one of my best vacations. I did something great every day and the beaches are great! The sun is so powerful there though, be carerful when you lay out!
