Anybody with insight into Brazil aviation around?


Recommended Posts

In 5.3a I ran into the following problem. My data show tons of flights with callsigns GLO and GOL, inside Brazil, operated by A320 and A332 aircraft. Whatever I read about GOL it has a pure Boeing fleet, while huge numbers of Airbus are with TAM only? But do TAM aircraft fly under GOL callsigns, with more than 50 flights per day????

I know that - but the basic problem with AI traffic programming in 2010, and more in the future, is the fact that the competing brands that you book have little to do with the actual airline that does the flying. It started with the US commuters like Mesa, Mesaba, etc, now Republic and all of its daughters, where the same aircraft can fly with a delta flight number in the morning and with a United flight in the afternoon, and now I see as example Japan Airlines 744 flying for some Gulf carriers from the Gulf to Latin America under JAL flight numbers one way and under GFA on the return trip, strongly depending on the bilaterals the countries have. This is more and more a mess - the illusion that the airlines really compete looks like not so true, it is the brands that compete and the airlines that cooperate. Germanwings as example, a 100% LH daughter, does fly for Air Berlin, Lufthansa and Air France not only have a world wide spare part exchange agreement, but even help out with aircraft case one goes tech, etc...
