As I am flying FRA-GRU on LH and onwards GRU-MVD with Pluna on 27th of December, I am wondering about the loads of the three available flights of PU between 10.00 and 16.35 local time.
As the LH504 ex FRA arrives 7.30 optimal would be an connection at 10.00 to MVD, but, looking in amadeus, the flight looks pretty booked out (only available class is Y2, the rest is all status "S")
Has anybody more insight into the bookings?

Considering a lot of Brazilians fly out of the Country for New's Year Eve, in special those from Sao Paulo, you shall expect hard times. Both 10 AM and 2:45 PM shows heavy bookings and i shall expect both to be fully booked. Your best chance would be 4:30 PM at this point.
For Dec 26, as an example, the 10 AM flight is sold out.
You should fly to EZE where is easier to reach MVD, and as the days after xmas become nightmares on Brazilian Airports due to heavy domestic and int'l demand.
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Problem is: The EZE flights ex FRA are fully booked as wel! GIG would be easier to go on to MVD as I have seen, but the timings are crap. Arrival @GIG in the evening with no chance to go on but in the middle of the night. I guess I will wait another few days.
For the 27th GRU-MVD, as you said, the 4.30 PU625 looks quite doable. Any idea how many PADs using the chance down in South America?
