AV Business LAX-EZE $1525-1600s RT [November/few summer]

A few June-August dates but mostly November then late Jan/Feb 2023.

https://www.google.com/travel/flight...NCHxMquP9jPLX9

It seems to book into a 100% category for UA PQP but cant find any definitive info on this. Looking to expand my travel into S.A. and this seems like a good deal - is it for AV? or is it more like flying TAP to EU?

So ex JFK it's in the 1200 range normally... The issue is Avianca, they still have extremely limited onboard service claiming COVID issues... Lots of flights are operated by 320s with recliner seats... They seemed to have added again the 330s and 787s to EZE but they are nothing but a larger seat and some really lazy FAs

Only on 787s, the 330s are angled 170 degrees or so, the 319/320 similar to US3 recliners
Here are some links to Trip Reports (External link to my site) on Avianca on their Boeing 787 from GRU-BOG and Airbus 330 from BOG-JFK.

It will be hard, AV has sub 2000 to SA almost every day... LATAM had some 2400 range fares which work for Alaska and Delta flyers...
AA has a tight leash on LATAM for OneWorld flyers since LATAM went free agent...

Bear in mind there's no drinks in Business Class other than ONE coca cola, water bottle or box of juice. The catering is really beyond belief.

AV makes TAP look like SQ in comparison.

Unless something changed GRU is A321, not 787 or A330. Really horrid considering length of flight.

Good to know. I was starting to get that impression. I'll wait for something else

True but maybe they'll match with the AA flights from DFW or MiA

Unlikely but never say never

Flew a few months ago domestic C. FA told us that due to government laws there is no onboard service. Curious to know what kind of law lets all the night clubs, bars, concerts etc open with no restrictions but no onboard service due to covid

Avianca FA law, it ranks higher than the constitution... They had the laziest FAs in the industry pre-Covid, with slow and crappy service. They'll ride the COVID restrictions limit our service as long as they can... 😶😒

AV had had business class flights to GRU from Miami as well for 1,100 Rt for a very long time. Not EZE but still very good
