Varig Switches Gears (again)

VRG - "New" Varig has again re-tooled its business plan under new owners GOL.

For those who were looking for a strong international footprint for the "New" Varig - similar to the old old Varig you will be saddened by the decision to only connect to just 2 European cities - Madrid and Paris - all the other routes LHR, FRA and FCO will be dropped.

The route structure will however focus on more domestic and regional LATAM routes. Sadly the Brazilian Star will no longer shine over a large network that once spanned the globe from Athens to Tokyo.

Best of luck VRG - some of us are still routing for you
