No More RG´s 757 To BEL?

Sun May 22, 2005 2:36 am

A few month ago I took a RG flight from BEL to FOR and before that a round trip BEL-MAO-BEL, all in their 757-200. I was just trying to book another flight from BEL to FOR and found that RG isn´t even doing it direct anymore (it now connects passengers in GIG!).
I must say that it doesn´t surprise me that the MAO leg doesn´t get the 757 anymore (it now gets their 737-400), since it was only about 40% full in both ways, but the FOR flight was 100% full -biz and coach.
Is RG only using the 757 on International flights? This acft change all the time is no good for any airline, more specially for RG how is desperate to survive.

As far as I know RG uses the 757 for GIG-BSB as well. The 757 was used for ASU-COR an replacedfor the B738. B757 is also used daily for LIM. Recently RG also replaced the B757 for the run SSA-GIG-EZE.

Anyone with a list of destinations served by RG B757s?

This is typical Varig...until you board the a/c you never know which a/c they will deploy...I hate this!

Rgs,
