People, let's not assume that MEA
will lease an A330 from another airline.
Have you ever thought they might buy one or lease a brand new one fresh out of the Airbus plant?
could do is buy one slot from any airline that is scheduled to take delivery of an A330 and voila....MEA
will have a brand new, shiny A330, custom built specifically for MEA
by this summer.
Let's just wait and see what happens. It is clear that MEA
will need a 4th A330 if they fly to GRU
. But let's keep other things open besides them leasing a used A330 or having a brand new one built for them.
I think there is a strong possibility that Varig or TAM will operate the route and code-share with MEA
