American $601 San Francisco to Sao Paulo, Brazil Aug to Dec 2015

American Airlines has dropped fares to $601 for San Francisco to Sao Paulo GRU Brazil, available for most departure dates between August and mid-December 2015. This is a low fare for a high mileage route.

American Airlines San Francisco – Miami – Sao Paulo – Los Angeles – SFO

$600.84  September 9 – September 13, 2015

SFO-GRU $601 AA Sep15

Routing kind of depends on your flying preferences. The total distance is about the same when flying SFO-GRU via Miami or SFO-GRU via LAX. The main factor is whether you want to knock out the trip with one long 6,150 LAX-GRU segment or break the trip up into two smaller segments with SFO-MIA at 2,585 miles and MIA-GRU at 4,072 miles.

When flying economy class, I kind of prefer the shorter segments rather than suffering through a 13-hour economy class long haul flight.

Los Angeles fares are priced about $120 to $200 more on American Airlines for this route.

  1. Airfare deals are valid at time I post them and they can be gone within minutes, hours, or sometimes they may last a few days.
    Better the deal, the more likely it will be a short-lived deal.

    Looks like these fares are now $690 on American Airlines 24 hours after this post was published.
