I am leaning towards OceanAir because it is the most exotic and all my other flights are on TAM.

Go with OceanAir! A Fokker sure beats a boring ol'e A320 anyday!
I convert Jet A and 100LL into noise.

Quoting USFlyer MSP (Thread starter):

I would go on Ocean or GOL since I already flew TAM.

It all depends on your needs!
Like Fokker, Airbus or Boeing? In favour of one of the airlines? Just the price?

Oceanair only offers one daily nonstop flight on the route while GOL offers 3(B738 and B73G) and TAM offers 6 daily flights on the A320.

TAM has the best service, but since you will fly other flights with them, try GOL, that is now becoming the most popular airline in Brazil, or maybe they already are. They have new planes and service is nothing special, but for a flight that is just over an hour, who cares.

Oceanair is starting to grow in Brazil and used to offer just regional service, but without Varig they are having a chance in the market.

If you really enjoy flying, and want to try something more exotic, Oceanair offers twice daily SSA-AJU-MCZ-REC with the F100. Three half hour flights.
