    eternal greetz to Fido Dido! xD

    ”Gol has accumulated losses of more than 1 billion Brazilian Reais (473 million dollars) this year after rapid expansion led to falling profitability. Bigger rival Tam, which was TAKEN OVER by Chile's Lan to form Latam Airlines Group said it will cut domestic supply 7% in the first half of 2013.”

    “You dumb f indians there in Chile”
    Angry Dutchy, shhtop.

    “People confuse takeover with the word Merger”
    By “people” you mean you. The new airline, LATAM is listed on the Chilean stock exchange (i.e. a Chilean business) and it fully owns the Brazilian unit of the airline. TAM share holders were bought out (i.e. a take over). In a merger there is a share swap as in the AF/KLM case with 2 holding companies.

    I don't understand why you get so uptight about it. It is good news for all those Brazilians that used to work for TAM. Lan put 100s of millions in to the business to modernize it.

    Watch out angry dutch, de atrás pica el indio!

    ”Your low self esteem (as most Chileans) keeps you ignorant...Lol. You dumb f indians there in Chile (Manclown is a real example) really wanna make yourself important huh? Guess what, Chile has the same statue as Guatemala...”

    Angry AND racist, aren't you!

    Why would a dutchboy be so angry with the Chileans, unless of course, you are not Dutch at all?

    You are right. What problem would a dutchy have with us. They tried to colonise Chiloe once and failed, but I am sure that is not it.

    As they say:

    the problem with the dutch ..
    they give too little..
    and take too much.

    But besides them being overly frugal we like them down here, especailly those open-mind Dutch ladies who go crazy so far from home.

    Dutch don't have problem with Chileans at all. Been uncountable times over there and last but no least, as a small detail, my girlfriend is dutch and she loves Chile. I love how Fido Dido humilliates himself being a racist prick.
