No big surprise. Last couple of times I took this flight it was only 50% full.

What's the service like in business class on the GIG>JFK? I have an AA flight coming up that leaves at 23.00. Is there a (full) dinner service shortly after take off, or do folks simply take a light snack and drink and then bed down for the night and eat a breakfast before arrival?

Yes, full dinner service. Although if you just want to go straight to sleep, the lounge provides a dinner of sorts (pasta, chicken curry, etc).

Pretty much what any of us who fly from/to other northeast airports have been offered for decades, even those cities with substantial Brazilian populations.

I'd rather connect in GRU and fly nonstop into JFK. On a Delta or Gol ticket.

I agree that’s a better itinerary. You can do that on AA as well. One difference is that AA’s 777 business class seats are better than those on Delta One’s 767.

Delta uses an A330 on JFK-GRU with reverse herringbone seats
