What kinda a/c was he piloting into GRU when this happened?
|Quoting Aa777jr (reply 1):|
I don't think AA did anything. They paid his fine, $12,775 US, and he was released and allowed to travel back to MIA pending the check clearing. AA brings revenue to Brasil with its flights to GIG and GRU, think they would be nicer to pilots coming in from their long trips.

Look at what Immigration does in Brazil: they fingerprint, photograph, then do what with it? Zilch! Nada! Niente! Nothing! Pas! The officer likely presses the delete button after each US passport holder goes through the process. This is done with public money, in a country that cannot afford waste. Equipment & labor being consumed every day. Kids could be educated with this money!
|Quoting AirWillie6475 (reply 16):|
Going back to the incident. The Brazilian airport officials probably did something stupid to make the crew angry and less complient. I really don't think that the crew would want to argue with officials after a long flight as they would probably be in a hurry to get into the hotel.
