[PREM FARE GONE] AA NYC-GIG business class (I) for $500

AA business class from New York (all 3 airports) to GIG for $500, both direct and via MIA widely available until end of 2021. Google flight here https://www.google.com/travel/flight...gl=US&curr=USD

Booking on AA is super difficult as showed error most of the time, esp from JFK. I booked from EWR then it's worked. Amex Travel Portal can book for $470 with domestic connection from JFK to MIA on Y.

I don't believe AA's JFK-GIG flight returns until next Christmas. It's not showing up at that $500 price point at that time on ITA.

Thanks for the info. Just booked and ticketed EWR-MIA-GRU-SDU roundtrip $515 in November. GRU-SDU segment is on G3 in Y. Got ticket number, let's hope this sticks.

This is like the 3rd Brazil business fare I bought in the last few months. I flew the UA ORD-GIG fare in January. I also got in on the DL business fare to GRU last year, but might cancel due to all the travel restrictions still around.

Managed to get $489 booked directly via AA website. JFK-MIA booked into 777 F and then MIA-GIG in 787 J. Great sale fare, booked into I.

If you look up flights to São Paulo then you will see we can do a RT for below 800

Also works from other airports in the north-east. I found it from ALB, PVD, MHT, BGR and PWM for $550:

Maybe others work as well. 770 US$ / 990 CA$ from YUL

Nice. With no change fee worthwhile gamble to see the condition of Americas later in 2021.

Just checked AA Vacations and flights are coming up as I* so (if nothing changed) you should get better EQDs booking with them.....

Also, WAS area to GIG works for about $100 more. Last but not least, Amex Travel (for those who have a Platinum Card) has a little discount over the prices showing on AA.com. Still AA Vacations is probably your best bet for EQDs.
