Re: AR1303 MIA-EZE hits severe turbulence, 10-15 hurt

Rio Branco lies in the Northwest of Brazil, so the incident actually took place a little bit past mid-flight.
The injuries seem not to have been so serious, otherwise they would have diverted to VVI.

Re: United ends Hamburg for good

It shocks me how limited long-haul flying is from German cities other than FRA and MUC. I compare it with Canada, where cities like YOW, YHZ, YEG all have long-haul flights even though they're far smaller than HAM. You shouldn't, since North America does not have the coverage of intercontinental hu...

Re: Rio de Janeiro GIG plans for Terminal 1

Terminal 1 has become sort of a pier to Terminal 2. Even though all of its terminal facilities are still intact, it has become a mere domestic concourse.

Re: Norwegian has applied for a Brazilian operating license

The permission to operate in Brazil as a foreign carrier does not mean anything. That is necessary if the airline wants to issue tickets from a Brazilian POS.
In this case, it is more than that, but it is not an AOC application.
