Getting to Paraguay

Saludos-

I'm trying to go Paraguay from JFK Airport in November of this year. The Brazilian airline TAM has some almost unbelievable deals. But...you know what they say about something that seems to good to be true. Is TAM a safe and reliable airline? Or let me rephrase that oxymoronic question is TAM any less safe and reliable then US airlines. Thanks!

NOTE-I'm only trying to be homorous. I know airline employees work hard to make flying and safe and reliable as possible.

iya, where does the flight go via ? Usually the more stops there are the cheaper it is. It's a Brasilian airline so prob goes via Sao Paulo or Brasilia. TAM have been flying fine internationally, ok recently nationally with only small delays in comparison to a few weeks ago, now about up to 30min. Flights seem to depend on weather conditions here. But yep it's a safe airline and good, I work with tourism and we use TAM all the time,you should be fine.

Thanks. I heard a lot of positive things. But then I read some negative things that got me scared.

This is such a sad coincidence.

In spite of this terrible accident I would still go TAM to Paraguay. if fact I will be flying TAM soon anyway. I sincerely doubt that the fault was of the plane. Have a good trip

So far investigators are saying it wasn't the fault of the plane but the length of the runway at the airport. I'm sure your right. Thanks.
