    TPG Readers' Best Tips For Visiting South America
    By Kaeli Conforti/ News/ The Points Guy/ thepointsguy.com

    "We recently asked our TPG Lounge readers to share their best tips and go-to ways for traveling to South America with points and miles. Here’s a look at some of our favorite answers. (Some responses have been lightly edited for style and clarity).

    American Airlines, British Airways and Alaska Airlines
    Some members of the TPG Lounge swear by Oneworld carriers like British Airways and American Airlines (along with non-alliance partner Alaska Airlines) when it comes to flying to South America from the US.

    “For me, those short-haul flights on British Airways partners are the real sweet spot of Avios. Flights under [a distance of roughly] 500 miles in the US on AA via Avios used to be 4,500 but were bumped up to 7,500. Internationally, the 4,500 rate still applies.” — David K.

    “I have yet to redeem it but 60,000 miles to fly round-trip from the US to Manaus, Brazil (MAO) in business class with AAdvantage sounds pretty good — and LATAM still has lie-flat seats [when you fly] from Miami (MIA).” — Burge K....."
