AM : BCN - GRU $1200-$1400 RT Business (I Class)

Google Flights Link

There is availability on surrounding days too. This is very similar to the PMI-GRU or MAD-GRU flight that was available earlier. You can't book directly with Aeromexico unfortunately and you'll need to use a third party booking tool (Amex Travel had the flight available)

My specific ticket that I bought was BCN-AMS-MEX-GRU-MEX-AMS-BCN with all segments in I class for an estimated 33,338 MQM and $8890.40 MQD earned on Delta.

Edit: Also, at least one leg across the Atlantic will be in KLM or AF Business and your connecting flights from BCN to/from AMS/CDG will be AF and KLM intra European business but still I class fares with the same Delta 150% MQM and 40% MQD earning rate

Hi, this fare has been alive for almost 2 years and has been discussed here many times in many threads. I just posted it how it can be booked on AM website in af/kl forum for mileage runs. Thanks for heads up, it never hurts tho.

Thanks ... with your suggestion of multi-city, I was able to book easily on AM website. All my long segments are on AM though I am flying through CDG (was looking to get AF on at least one trans-Atlantic segment).
Combining with SAT-BCN (also easily booked on AM website) to get my DL Diamond MQDs locked up by Feb 1

If you want to book it once again in future, EURO site with € payment is cheaper than US dollars.

Did anyone do this in Dec? Or anyone doing this in Jan?
I have scheduled in 3 weeks. And I am just wondering if I need covid test in addition to my vaccination proof to enter Brazil?
So any recent experiences would be welcome.

2. Passengers must have a COVID-19 vaccination certificate showing that they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days before departure from the first embarkation point. The certificate must be in English, Portuguese or Spanish.
- This does not apply to:
- nationals and residents of Brazil;
- passengers younger than 12 years;
- passengers with a letter issued by a doctor proving that the passenger is medically unable to receive the vaccine. The letter must be in English, Portuguese or Spanish.
3. Passengers entering or transiting through Brazil must have:
- a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken at most 72 hours before departure from the first embarkation point; or
- a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken at most 24 hours before departure from the first embarkation point. The test result must be in English, Portuguese or Spanish.
- This does not apply to:
- passengers younger than 2 years;
- passengers younger than 12 years and traveling accompanied by a companion. The companion must have a negative antigen or RT-PCR test result;
- passengers with two positive COVID-19 RT-PCR tests. The tests must be taken at least 14 days apart and the second test at most 72 hours before departure; and
- a negative or non-detectable COVID-19 antigen test taken after the last positive COVID-19 RT-PCR test; and
- a COVID-19 recovery certificate in English, Portuguese or Spanish showing that they are asymptomatic and fit to fly. The certificate must show the travel date.

You definitely need a test in addition to your proof of vaccination

Thanks, that is something to look forward to, lol.
My MEX connections are 3:45, 5:50, 6:30, and 4:05, so hopefully will have no issues with long immigration lines (except maybe having to pee).

I prefer to arrival in T1 on other airlines instead. The queues seems to be much shorter and I never waited longer then 30 minutes for immigration there. Maybe it's just my luck.
