Looking to make a trip to South America next April to tick off some bucket list destinations being Brazil, Argentina and Peru. I have a stash of Velocity/Krisflyer points (about 200000 velocity points in total) and am looking for the best way to fly home business class that also isn’t too taxing in terms of flight duration.
Looking at redemptions through Singapore Air directly, they fly from Sao Paulo to Sydney however via Barcelona, which ends up being about a 35 hour trip on the quickest flight. Virgin Australia is returning much the same result also. I even looked at flying out of LA but the redemption requirements were ridiculous (over 1 million points on some days). Is there any other options I might be missing, or are these the best pick of the bunch?
