Also GRU being almost 12 hours block time won’t be possible with the B781 as BA gives its Brazilian passengers 2 piece checked baggage allowance free of cost (same it does for Kenya Ghana Nigeria flights too) thus effecting the payload.
Flying 11.5 hours max should be the cut off point for the B781.
BA is no longer required to give two bag allowance to every passenger to and from Brazil. In fact they now sell hand baggage only fares.
