LA/(DL): NAT/FOR/REC (Brazil) - NYC/BOS/MIA/MCO/FLL/etc $360s ow or $570s rt in Z

Books into Z class: http://www.wheretocredit.com/la/z
Not sure about earnings though because LA still seems to be in a transitional state with neither many OW nor ST programs crediting their miles. Still some decent opportunities around

Technically a 4464 mi MPM fare to MIA... fun routes all around much of SA and Eastern NA available

Books into PY intra SA but Biz to and within NA is possible:

Sample oneway:

Latam.com is pricing it out. I don't know if it tickets. These are premium economy prices that are going to business

So it is a excursionist business fare so they might be going for a flash sale or someone fat fingered the input and put both premium economy and business under the same price. Booking can be done till and of scheduled with some seasonal blackouts.

Google Flights


The scenic route from Natal to New York... Hard to tell what is the relationship between LATAM and BA... Officially LATAM said in the PR that they wanted to keep relationships with other OneWorld partners... Those Y+ segments are 25 TPs each.. so (5*25) 125+ (2*140) 280 = 405 TPs potentially (excluding MIA-JFK on Delta)... Or about USD 1.5 a TP...

For Delta it's 22500 MQMs and 4487 MQDs...

Fare rules state:
"1 FREE STOPOVER PERMITTED ON THE PRICING UNIT ONLY AT THE GATEWAY."

What exactly does gateway mean in this context? I was not able to find any itinerary with a stopover.

It should be either one of the large airport in Brazil or the US if there are forward connections. I think it count gateway as the places with massive miles deductions in the routing rules. There were a few. One of the reasons it routes do weirdly is that GRU has a 3800 mile deduction on transit. Which basically allows connections anywhere in SA after that.

OK thanks. Sometimes airfares are good in reverse direction, apparently not this one.
I actually don't find this available at all anymore

JFK was always limited to the summer and September. It less that there is as much less availability and more prot finding the end dates and the seasonal blackouts
