Will Varig Ever Operate 777 Or Larger A/c Again?

Fri Jul 06, 2007 7:37 am

Is there any chance of Varig operating the 777 or similar size aircraft again in the near furture? I believe the largest aircraft they operate now is the B767. However travel to Brazil seems to booming and has been very profitable to most large airlines flying there. It would be nice to Varig growing again and even offering direct international flights to some more cities apart from just Sao Paulo and Rio. What do you guys think?

There should be some news from Varig later this year. It's possible that Varig might operate T7's again, especially given Gol's relationship with Boeing. It's just a matter of time.

I would say, in the near future a 787 order can be announced by Gol.

New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
