    For everyone travelling in/out to/from GIG, on December 18th AA will change to Terminal 2 of GIG airport, because the Customs in Brazil feel there is no need to maintain a team on Terminal 1 only for Delta/AA and Taag. This information was given by the Government Civil Aviation Agency on a Major Newspaper. For those customer, there will be no Admiral's Club anymore, and AA didn't say anything about it until now!

    Thanks to help from a Portuguese friend and occasional MP member, we were able to track down this article which seems to confirm the story. Looks like AA is moving terminals in a few days for all flights out of GIG: LINK.

    I would never post something here if I didn't have the confirmation! The only reason I didn't publish the source is because I couldn't find in English anywhere! So, since Portuguese is a very hard language I took the liberty to post the story in English!

    You're right. Sometimes I forget that translator is something that is impossible not to find on the web. Sorry! My Bad!

    Just to make certain we're complete, lacking a link myself:
    All international carriers will move to Terminal 2, the first ones on Dec 18 include DL, AA etc. There is now no firm date for lounge openings, but it looks like 3rd Q 2013 or so. We'll see.
    The AF lounge in Terminal one already quit servicing DL and it will close when AF and KL move, but the official date for the European carriers has not yet been in anything I have seen. The Christmas rush will be a mess, probably, except for the lucky ones who are flying carriers that are not moving this month. Like me:D
