Having lived in São Paulo, while I wouldn't care about arriving late, I could see how most people wouldn't like the idea. That being said most business travellers will just go and deal with it. Most leisure travellers will travel to Rio first which in past experience is better set up for tourists...

Great to see. I really like ANZ's service. That being said, I'm not sure I'd want to be in Y 10 abreast. I'm glad we won't be doing that.

No one should care. I find the whole Australian Icon premise rather strange. If they feel they need forgein capital, let them access it.
Dec 12, 2013, 03.12 PM / Virgin Australia: Air New Zealand, Etihad & Singapore Airlines take bigger stake

Yeah, that makes sense. Thanks for that.

In Sydney I usually turn up at around 45 minutes prior. I have been told that they will accept J class up to 30 minutes prior to the flight. So 90 minutes will give you heaps of time.

You can use TAM in Brasil but there is also Gol, Azul (Set up by the guy from Jet Blue), Avianca amongst others. You don't have to enter into the country via Sao Paulo or Rio, there are flights from Chile, Argentina and Uruguay to other cities in the country. Also for short distances, you can als...
