GPS Carlos Melia onboard TAM Airlines NYC to Florianopolis  |  Brazil   |  New adventures, take me to new destinations and continents. This time I crossed all the way from Asia to North America to catch my TAM Airlines flight from New York City to Florianopolis (see video above). Still in transit at Rio de Janeiro International Airport, waiting for my connecting flight to my final destination, Florianopolis, where I will be taking part of a Press Trip which will include Florianopolis, my favorite Lagoa da Conceicao, Parrot Island and Ponta dos Ganchos. The second part of my trips is focussed to the 29th IGLTA 2012 Annual Convention, where I will take part of their mentors program and also participate at the Media Trade Show.
Thank you TAM Airlines for all the courtesies and the Upgrade to Business Class, which I shared with my friend and colleague at CURVE MagazineMerry Johns. Comfortable seats (not flat beds), good entertainment service. I must say that the onboard service was a bit off, specially during dinner service. But the overall experience was great and I recommended as a flag carrier to Brazil.
Now transiting in Rio de Janeiro, before boarding to our next flight. TIP.. once at the airport, stay out of the Boarding Gates area. Most restaurants, cafes and shops are located before the Security Check Points. Specially if you are doing a long connecting time. Bon Dia Galera. !!! Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator –
