Very good news !
It just confirm the good moment of the city. Economy is booming and brings a lot of international activity.

The numbers for GIG on 11/2011 were published today and show 1.3 mm passengers (plus 700,000 on domestic SDU), almost #2 airport in Brazil (which probably will happen next year). Hotels are busier than ever also !

Now... why JJ decided to reduce continues to be my main question....
Hope to see next year this route to become daily and even with a larger equipment but i like that LH want to do it step by step.
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
