This is my first post on A.net. I have been reading this Forum for more than four years, but I never posted anything in all those years.
Today VARIG posted a huge advertisement (4 pages long) in all the main Brazilian newspapers. In a nutshell, the ad says that VARIG is an Airline for which the Brazilians shall have pride for and that it will restructure itself to keep rendering its services for 78 years more. Last but not least, VARIG thanks to all of its employees and in the last page of the ad it posted the names of all of its employees.
I checked the employees' name list and I was able to locate several names of friends of mine who work in VARIG.
This is the first advertisement of VARIG since a new board of directors, formed by some well-known Brazilian executives, and a new CEO took office last month.
I really hope that all the money spent by RG in this huge ad pays for and that the restructuring process works out to keep it flying.
Does anyone have any fresh news regarding the acquisition talks with TAP, or regarding any new aircraft to be added to the fleet?
