    Ek will fly GIG DXB and GIG EZE Jan 2012 on. By then i should have relocated and escaped the travails of South American flying, but this will give GIG flyers real choice with a World class airline

    This will be a daily service. The equipment (Boeing 77W) will offer convenient flights to DXB with connections as good as GRU-DXB. They will go on to EZE as well, so you will have a real business Class and a proper Suites First (JBCarioica, that should please you!) even to Argentina and back.

    Yeah, I wonder how much a First Class ticket GIG-EZE would set me back?

    Should be about the same as BA GRU_EZE used to be, not more? like R$3500?

    GRU is making a place for itself as the regions top airport..... Singapore Airlines will be coming, now Emirates... this is the kind of traffic that the rest of the regions airports can only dream of. I wonder how long it will take Qantas to drop EZE and to to GRU....

  5. My understanding was that the EK flight that gets to GRU will be the one that continues to EZE. EK will have 2 flights to brasil, GRU and GIG. One of these will connect to EZE. Is that accurate? The world cup in Rio is driving flights to GIG.

    I think it will be DXB-GIG-EZE?

    Not only the World Cup. Also the booming oil industry, and the olympics. And the fact that more and more brazilians can afford to travel abroad!

    LOL that's a pretty penny for a 3 hr flight. You could fly coach and bring back suitcases of some fine Mendozan Malbec!
