Did anyone manage to book the Brazil to Asia or Europe Business or First deal last week?


About a week ago, a mistake fare showed up on AA from Brazil to Asia in Business Class or First class for between $300 – $900 USD.

An example of a business class deal:

I know some people that booked about 5 or so of these deals. The above deal of R$1,255.42 is approximately $358.73 in US Dollars.

Some people were able to book flights on Cathay Pacific in First for about $900. That is an amazing deal.

According to posts on the web, it appears that AA quietely honored this mistake fare.

Many reported that their tickets remained in pending status for a long time but were eventually ticketed.

The deal appeared to work for most destinations in Asia and a few in Europe as well for flights ex-Brazil.

I did not get in on the deal but it would have been pretty amazing. Could have used miles to position to Brazil and then have Cathay First to Hong Kong.

Were you able to purchase a ticket and subsequently had the ticket issed?
