New York to Rio de Janeiro for $1,150 in business class!

American seems to be in a fare war with TAM out of New York, and ultimately the consumer is winning (as usual). American is offering business class tickets for $1,150 including taxes from JFK to Rio de Janeiro! The only blackout dates are December 14-24, and as far as I can tell tickets can be cancelled without penalty. This has to be the craziest premium cabin non-mistake fare I’ve ever seen. If you’re interested, BOOK NOW, you should be able to cancel later. Check out the FlyerTalk thread on the subject for more details.


  1. My Z-class fare from AUS to NRT in October for $1500 on UA is pretty much the craziest premium cabin fare I’ve ever seen. No longer exists, unfortch.

  2. Yep, totally legit. Was on UA’s site for at least 2 weeks in March. I know at the time they were having some biz class fare sales, so it might have been related.
