Now, let me tell you the problem that hapenned. First the commander said that Congonhas Airport was closed beacus of the bad weather and that it`s flights were goint to GRU, so we would have to wait a little. After that Guarulhos Airport closed too, because of the weather, so, we again we entered in wait procedures. After some 3 turns over Santos the commander said we were goig to Rio Galeão, and there Avianca would see what would happen to us…

Landing at Rio de Janeiro GIG:



After some time waiting we unboarded and instructed to wait at gate 3 on Terminal:



Delta 767-400ER:

After that they (Avianca staff) didn`t know nothing about us, and after some time said that they were waiting for a tripulation to take us to SP. And so the airport energy went over:

So Avianca system went down and nobody knows nothing now. After a time, the lights come back and Avianca, after very discussions with us, gave a voucher for us, a dish of food at a restaurant in the airport, here`s the food:

It was delicious…
After something like half hour after we finish our dinner they iniciated the boarding. So after something like 6 hours at the Rio (we reached about 5 P.M. and reacher the plane by 11:00 p.m) we were going back to SP.

Now boarded, we waited more half hour until some documents to fly were brought to the pilot. After they reach we taxied and take off:



The meal was composed of drinks and some peanuts (just peanuts because of the hour, and beacause we already ate, I think):

After 40 minutes we were landing Guarulhos:

Conclusion

Well, Avianca is a very good airline, that representes 8,5% of the domestic passengers in Brazil. She is small, but has very quality. Despite the meteriological problems it was a goos flight and I hope fly Avianca again.
OBS: Rio Galeão isn't good!
