    I recently had an opportunity to try TAM's new First Class on their brand new 777.
    The seat, which is the same as Swiss on their A330, is extremely comfortable and the cabin makes you feel like you're in your own living room.
    The complete report, you can find here.

    Very nice indeed! Can you share a bit about how you managed the booking? Award seats in F on JJ are certainly tough to get!

    Hello Glef,
    I was invited to try it by TAM. :)
    I know how frustrating (impossible) it is to get award seats in F or even in J with TAM's. :(
    I've never managed to get one in my life, and don't know anyone who did it either.

    Thanks for this. I want to try it but haven't yet. The basics seem quite similar to the A330, except for the sofa, and that is a good thing! The TAM F ground service for both departures and arrivals, even for non-VIP's is superb, although I would not say that for call centres.

    Have you any idea where they'll deploy the B777 after they discontinue FRA?

    They are discontinuing GIG-FRA which is operated by their A330.
    The route GRU-FRA will continue with B777.
