Varig has an excellent FFP.I am member since 1995.It is the biggest program in Southamerica.
You need less miles for a free ticket from S.A to Europe than LH.It is not difficult to earn miles and redeem, just a phone call,no time in advance(just one day).
But not everything is perfect.The in flight service it is not as good as ten year ago.

Depends on your travel plans....BD was very good if only for perilously low Silver & Gold thresholds (16k and 38k miles) and the part miles, part cash programme. You can also get 20,000 miles for free just by getting the bmi Mastercard and since it is MBNA issued you only need a pulse to get approved.
I've now redeemed all but 12k miles in BD and am creditting *A flying to Lufthansa, a good FFP for premium travel.
