    From my limited experience, intra-Brazil is quite reasonable however there's not much to be said about the long haul redemption similar to Air New Zealand on several markets where there is no availability to be found 330 days out.

    Brazil domestic inventory on JJ opens up only 3 months before departure, even for people on their own FF program. Me thinks this is due to the fact that JJ does not have any restrictions on domestic awards. If there is a seat on the plane, it is yours. Also, there is no high/low mileage pricing for fares.

    Sometimes the domestic inventory is hit or miss. Some markets see wide open availability, while others are much more restrictive, and this is seemingly without rhyme or reason. But I would say that generally availability is ok.

    Premium cabin on JJ is almost always long haul only. There is very limited domestic premium service. And availability on JJ premium is like finding a unicorn. Awards on international JJ flights open 6 months out. I looked on JJ for the entire month of April, and I could not find one day on a Brazil-US route with premium cabin space.

    I have not flown then in Business, but the service in Y is pretty good, the food is ok, the seats are nice, with little foot rests, and you get a small amenity kit in Y. FAs are almost always friendly and professional.
