And a 2 class 757 with 210 seats would be a high density configuration ?
|Quoting PPVRA (Reply 6):|
Almost. Boeing's website puts 1-class B752 @ 228 max pax. So either they have a really nice pitch or a few premium seats.
|Quoting PVD757 (Reply 7):|
TACV claims it a 757-200ER. I wasn't sure there was an "ER" version of the 752, unless VR customized it somehow.
|Quoting 2travel2know (Reply 9):|
.. B737 (but not -100/200) is OK for FOR.
|Quoting Erikwilliam (Reply 10):|
sure, but you can´t seat 210 in a 737, even a NG one.
maybe the 737-900X, but I don´t think they have it yet.

Very interesting flight. Today i'm in FOR due to some biz meetings on monday, and see a huge movement. Does anyone knows the connections available at Cabo Verde Airport ? Its possible to get FOR to Europe thru Cabo Verde ?
|Quoting Velasco (Reply 12):|
Yes, that is possible indeed. I believe I saw some ads in Fortaleza selling the flight from FOR to LIS via Cape Verde. I think it's some travel agency near Hotel Praiano, at Avenida Beira Mar. With the new airport at Cidade da Praia this is definitely something I am looking forward to. I have no idea how much they will charge for stopovers.
|Quoting LipeGIG (Reply 11):|
But, how the loads are for the flight ? I imagine the size of FOR market to such flight (if they have no connections to Europe)
|Quoting Hardiwv (Reply 16):|
Just got the news that TACV is now planning a new flight to Brazil: REC once a week, REC-Praia (new airport)-CDG.
|Quoting 2travel2know (Reply 17):|
I don't know, does TACV flies to BOS, PVD - where a large number of Cape Verde descendants live?
|Quoting PVD757 (Reply 18):|
they fly 2x weekly to BOS. Don't rule out a flight to PVD in the future since that is where the core of the Cape Verdean US population resides
|Quoting 2travel2know (Reply 19):|
If it's cheaper to operate @ PVD than BOS and the core of the Cape Verde US population lives around PVD, it makes senese for TACV to fly there instead of BOS.
Another thing, It may be less time for northern Brazilians to fly to the BOS area (PVD) via Cape Verde than via GIG/GRU !
