Re: VARIG Brazil/LAN Chile/Aerolinas Argentinas routes to Asia/Oceania

I'm not sure, but I guess the RG routes were:
GIG-GRU-LAX-NRT
GIG-GRU-LAX-NGO
GIG-GRU-JNB-BKK-HKG
Operated by 747 and MD-11

Re: Flight detours due to geopolitical instability

LATAM's GRU-TLV is an example. The flight goes straight to Europe and reach Israel through the Mediterranean Sea.

Re: LATAM suspends GRU-FCO route

With FCO being canceled and BCN returning to the 767, is there any chance that MXP is going back to the A350? JNB is also probably being upgauged, since the 767s is not the most suitable aircraft to fly the route because of it's ETOPS restrictions.

Re: LATAM suspends GRU-FCO route

I agree. But we also need to point out that Latam’s service is much lower than in the past. I recently flew GRU-LHR in the PT-MUA, their first 77W. I was in J and the service was crap. The airplane needs a facelift urgently. I don’t fly Latam anymore to US and also will not fly to Europe. LATAM's b...

Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery released

Overall, it's a good livery. Not the best, but not the worst. The tail looks great, but I wish they kept the straight line on the fuselage to look more "serious". I also didn't like the billboard titles... In my opinion, it usually only works on airplanes that have shorter names (like TAM ...
