Also TAM is sticking the 773s in all GRU-MCO flights over the month of January 2014.
Yes but they will come from CDG
route. As MCO
runs 2x daily with the same aircraft, probably compensates the fact Jan 2013 JJ
operated 3x daily A332.
Why they never tried that before (moving from FRA
) while the demand for the United States was very strong and the USD/BRL
rate created a huge demand... I never understood !
|Quoting Reffado (Reply 67):|
I know this has been discussed thoroughly, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know. Considering the new ex-LA birds that are joining JJ's widebody fleet, have any statements regarding the retirement of the three ex-AZ birds?
Already parked. They are using the A332 to compensate, now that they cut some Rio routes.

Large loss by LATAM. Significantly worse than analyst were expected. I know the company blamed much of it on weakening of the Brazilian Real, but there are other forces at play including slowing passenger demand and oversupply in capacity, especially in TAM's home market.
Hi LAXIntl ! It's more than that ... Brazil never take care of its Current Account and recently, did the same with Supply & Demand curves. The oversupply in air markets come from the fact that both major domestic airlines (Tam and Gol) decided to use larger equipment fleet wise instead of customizing the fleet to the demand.
This produced the need to fly routes with 50-60 passengers on A320's or B738's because there's no demand on other times and they need the plane in another city.
So many reasons now that is hard to think what to do first, but one of the first things.... to create a domestic market for aircraft leasing/financing.
