Is Varig Still A Member Of Star Alliance?

Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:34 am

My nefew took in August a VARIG GRU-FRA flight, with its TAP Victoria Card, and Miles will not be credited !
When you visit Star Alliance website, Varig is still mentioned as a member. However, some airlines of the Alliance do not include any more Varig in their Partners list, as TAP:

Quoting Maperrin (Thread starter):

Varig continue to be a Star member. The fact is that all other Star Airlines with code share agreements with RG (except AC) suspend such agreements because Varig is not paying for the past debits (tickets sold by old-Varig), and as soon as they get their CHETA (Brazilian Certification for an airline) they need to settle new agreements with TP, LH, SA, ANA and SAS among others.
