TAM decelerated its A320 family fleet plan for 2008-11 based on lower "demand growth expectations in the domestic market" resulting from Brazil's ongoing ATC challenges. Its 2008 fleet will contain 98 Airbus narrow bodies, down from 103 originally planned. A320 family aircraft in TAM's fleet will total 101 in 2009, down from 106; 107 in 2010, down from 112, and 110 in 2011, down from 115.
