    Wow that is pretty amazing, thanks for sharing. Have they announced any US routes that will get 777?

    TAM will not be in Star much longer. One of the conditions for the merger approval from the Chilean court is that they cannot be in the same alliance as Avianca/Taca.

    Unless the merger falls through [doubtful], TAM is going to OneWorld. Hopefully, AS will work up a new award chart with LATAM with F in it 😀 We will see, still a long way to go though.

    Looks somewhat similar to LH F in the A380….I wonder if they have the privacy screen rises out of the seat?

    @Golfingboy — the merger can’t fall through — it’s a done deal already. As for going to oneworld, that’s what could “fall through.” Technically, they could stay independent (they’ve said that much). I, too, believe they’re going to oneworld, but it’s not a done deal.

    @Seth — Panrotas (your source) is *THE* travel industry publication in Brazil, so it’s as reliable as can be. It’s not a blog or something like that… (no offence to blogs and bloggers!!) 😉

    This is actually not terribly different from their FC product today, just a more modern seat and electronics. The current hard and soft products are superb and, although the upholstery might look dated, I highly recommend the existing service to anyone. One big difference is that some of the 777s today have a small TV, while other 777s and the A330s have a TV of similar size to what is pictured on the new product. The current soft product is excellent and they treat you like a true VIP. Only criticism I have is that the dedicated FC lounge at GRU needs more space for lounging/resting and needs larger bathrooms/showers. I wrote a detailed review of their FC service in November 2011 here: http://chrisjur.wordpress.com/2011/11/24/review-tam-airlines-first-class-jfk-to-sao-paulo/

    The seat looks great as does the electronic entertainment. All that is missing is the fireplace. Keep posting ways to earn FF miles.

    They don’t release any F seats to *A?
