Amigo Award Tickets Valid Following Collapse?

I have TPAC Amigo award flights booked on other *A carriers for next month, should I be at all concerned about these tickets being cancelled?

It varies. Call the operating carrier and ask.

I believe this refers only to the emission of new tickets, not to the ongoing validity of an already emitted one.

If you have a ticket number, not only a reservation locator, you probably have a better chance, but you can check its validity with the operational carrier, anyway.

My ticket is still valid, but I given the circumstances I will be keeping a close eye on it.

This seems just to suspend issuance of new tickets on O6 stock.

Seems so, from today:

IATA Suspends Avianca Brasil ? Aeronautics Online

and from earlier this week:

”On Monday afternoon, Avianca Brasil's pilots and aircraft crew said through their union that they would hold an indefinite general strike on Friday, citing recurring delays in payroll. The carrier's fleet is down to fewer than 10 planes, which has already disrupted air travel in Brazil but also made it difficult for the carrier to raise much-needed cash.”

An update from TPG,

Former Partner Airlines Not Honoring Existing Tickets Issued by Avianca Brasil or Programa Amigo

Has a statement from TAP,

“In virtue of the process of judicial reorganization of Avianca Brasil Airline and as a result of the suspension of the Multilateral Interline Traffic Agreement of this Airline by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), TAP informs that, starting on the 15th of June 2019, it will not accept tickets issued by Avianca Brasil and by Programa Amigo for travels on its flights.”

I'm still surprised there is no status offer from Avianca or some other airline who is focussed on Brazil like TP.
