Latam Brazil Avios booking

    I am trying to book a few domestic Brazil flights SDU to SSA and MAO to GIG for January 2023 using Avios via the Qatarairways site. Privilege Club – Book Flights – Spend your Avios – Redeem on Partner Airline. The drop down has TAM Linhas Aereas which I think is Latam Brazil. I can find one flight(MAO -GIG) but not the other. Is there a simpler way of doing this that anyone can suggest?

    Good discussion on booking latam with avios here:
    https://www.headforpoints.com/forums/topic/booking-latam-brazil-with-avios/

    I have found availability really thin

    Thanks – I found the ‘redeem with partner airline’ on Qatarairways and using TAM could find the correct destinations but for any date it just says ‘not available’. I even rang Qatar Airways and was told you couldn’t use Avios to book Latam flights… I am not sure if there is no availability at all or you cannot book !!!

    They are available to book with BA Avios, just not online. You have to call. They want to make it harder to redeem because they are an excellent value.

    I have booked multiple flights online with BA Avios including IPC, GPS, LIM, PPT, SCL, etc. but that was before they left Oneworld. Out of curiosity when was the last time you booked it over the phone?

    I remember seeing a FT thread, reporting a success as of May 2022:

    The LATAM flights can be still booked online using Iberia website. Was just checking the other day for our next trip to Peru.

    Thanks for the tip, will take a look at Iberia.
