Once you’ve sampled, you’ll have to plot further opportunities via the QSuites route map…

It’s really pretty easy. 15,000 points to experience this suite – is very, very sweet.
Brilliant! You have so many killer posts, I have no idea where to start. I just keep reading them over and over. Keep rockin’ it!!
I got 15k miles and $406 on Dec 1 flying EZE-GRU
Search again or try the other way around. I have easily pulled up dates, as have others. best of luck. You can always call into BA.
Brazil doesn’t allow surcharges but Argentina does. You’ll want to book GRU-EZE to avoid steep taxes/fees. As you’ve already noticed, EZE-GRU will have steep taxes/fees.
