How could they be planning on MIA-GIG direct also, if someone from RG here in MIA told me that they have a big debt that doesnt permit them to have sufficcient aircraft.
They will not need any extra aircraft to fly this route.
Flying between Miami and Brazil with the current redeye schedule required two aircraft.
Plane 1: Dep. GRU
Monday; arr. MIA
Tuesday, dep. MIA
Tues.; Arr. GRU
Plane 2: Dep. MIA
Monday; arr. GRU
Tuesday, dep. GRU
Tues.; Arr. MIA
New sched also requieres the same two aircraft:
Plane 1: Will be routed GIG
, land at MIA
in the morning, and turn right around to do MIA
. In Sao Paulo, the plane will once again turn right around and do the redeye GIG
, be back in Miami the next morning.
Plane 2: Will be routed MIA
redeye. In GIG
, will turn around and do GIG
. Will then do the MIA
redeye, and be ready for the daylight out of GIG
the next day.
It is increased aircraft utlization in an very undeserved market.
