That seems like a great avios opportunity.

There is also GRU-EZE availability on Turkish in business from GRU to EZE on some days. I think they introduced this route recently, as I saw ads when I was last in Buenos Aires and economy fares EZE-GRU-IST were really cheap (not UA-earning after a certain date, but great vacation fares). As a tag flight, I assume there are many extra seats for award availability.

I know JJ operates flights from GRU to AEP, but UA.com searches on about 8 dates don't show any award availability, which seems odd. GRU-EZE is pretty good, with A330s. If my intended stopover wasn't in Brazil, I think I'd just opt for the 320 from Lima to EZE.

Sorry if this is overly sidetracking from the discussion of the fare. The NYC-GYE just seems like such a great start to a larger vacation.
