TAM in the sky over Brazil

22.02.2012 . vartumashvili
TAM Linhas Aereas is the major air carrier of the South America and the Brazil's largest airline. Its the Star Alliance member. Route network of TAM covers virtually all areas in Brazil.

It appeared to be the only Brazil air carrier available for on-line tickets booking. The thing is that in order to make any on-line purchase in Brazil its necessary to enter CPF (its a kind of our Tax Identification Number). So, having no CPF its impossible to make purchase. The only thing left is to buy tickets after arrival to Brazil. But in this case theres a real threat of overstated prices and lack of tickets in high season.

Boarding to TAM's flight in Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport

The majority of the planes in the Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport are owned by TAM airlines.

If you book or ask a seat on the left side of the cabin (A-B-C seats) youll see the main places of interest: the Iguazu waterfalls and the Itaipu hydrostation. But, they say, the airport may receive the planes from both sides of the runway, so, theres a chance to see nothing.

In spite of the weather forecast with rains and lightning for the whole week (we were ready for such a foul), the weather was fine, without any cloud in the sky. Because of this forecast I decided to spend one more day in Foz do Iguacu, but it was not necessary.

Lovely hearing from our neighbors south of the equator smile:)

You said that it's impossible to buy tickets online without a "CPF" number. What do you do if you don't have a CPF number? Is it possible to work around it?
