GOL B737 max

And here we go again and they are the first airline doing this.

A good reason NOT to fly with them and enjoy the now available Y plus on LATAM's nice A320.

With all the scrutiny the MAX have had, it's probably going to be the safest plane around.
Besides that, it's much more environmental friendly burning roughly 15% less fuel compared to the previous version. Which is probably the real reason GOL want's to start flying them soon - they are cheaper to operate.

If I had a choice in Brazil I usually go for Azul though

Always loved Embraer planes, makes me feel like in Brasil when flying out of MXP. And they do not have Boeing plane in their fleet - a plus !

Do they have Y plus ?

Azul has a section with additional legroom. Called Espacio Azul or Azul Space.

LATAM has now also on domestic and regional flights the middle seat blocked in the first three rows. Very convenient.

GOL is my preferred airline on the SDU-CGH route.

I love GOL too, a pleasant fresh approach with good crew. BUT they do not fly A320.......
