I can't seem to find any Business class seats on QFF to Sth America. Is this normal - any hints?

Additional question - trying to get to Ushaia in Nov. Which airlines would you recommend or not recommend?

Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.

Always difficult, if not impossible, in my experience. Often it is hard to even purchase a full-fare business class ticket. On some flights that I am looking at for later this month, the flights are completely sold out (business & economy). I guess that doesn't leave much for the frequent flyer redemptions. I think that South America is one continent where one-world is very underepresented - I think there are only 5 one-world flights per week to South America (LAN SYD-AKL-SCL). I'd be interested in hearing anyones suggestions as well.

On paid fares some US-based airlines offer better fares to South America via USA than there are direct on LA/AR. Of course on QFF awards that is a massive increase in points required.

There will be more options available if you travel via LAX and then either DFW or MIA. The LA/QF flight via AKL to SCL is always hard to find premium cabin awards. Note that wen using QF FF points for a business class award, any 2-class AA domestic flights will be in economy and not in first class as you might first expect.
