Paranaense prefer 12-hour bus trip to airport chaos

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Brazilian team Atletico Paranaense have chosen to travel 12 hours by bus to an away game at the weekend rather than face airport chaos.

Paranaense, based in the southern city of Curitiba, said on their Web site that the team had left on Thursday night for Rio de Janeiro, where they face Flamengo on Saturday.

The journey is expected to take 10 to 12 hours.

'The bus journey will be far less tiring for the players than waiting in an airport, which would be without any sort of comfort,' said fitness coach Walter Grassman.

A work-to-rule by air traffic controllers has caused huge delays in domestic air travel in the last week.

Paranaense are seventh in the Brazilian championship after an astonishing 6-4 win over Vasco da Gama on Wednesday.
