Brazil’s Gol: Please Don’t Fly Us

Brazil’s Gol has told passengers not to fly until next week while the country’s chaotic air traffic system gets back to normal.  This is unprecedented (at least as far as I’m aware) – Sao Paulo’s domestic airport was diverting flights to its international airport, causing a bit of havoc there, including forcing some flights to divert to Rio.  As bad as the summer has been in the US, Brazil’s air passengers have had it far worse.

In fact, the government fired the defense minister yesterday (he runs commercial aviation in Brazil) because of the collapse of the system that culminated in the TAM crash last week.
