Just noticed that Varig has reduced LAX-GRU to 4 times weekly from daily. Anyone know why? I fly to Brazil 4 times a year and it's almost impossible to get a seat on this flight as they are always full. I live in Hawaii and start out in HNL and taking Varig from LAX nonstop to Brazil sure beats flying to IAH, ATL, MIA, or ORD.
You would think they would be ADDING service on this route, not reducing service. Is it because the Japanese citizens in transit now need US Visas? What gives?
