TAP are more reasonable for baggage charges - €90 e/w, but the flights are closer €1,000 versus €750 with Air France/KLM. I'm in Ireland so lots of options but all involving lots of flights!
I plan to travel around a bit in Brazil so another factor is baggage costs on internal flights, from reading other posts looks like most internal flights with Gol and TAM you can include kite gear as normal luggage so that's a positive. hmmm, decisions, decisions
Can't wait though, last weekend I was wearing a 5/3 wetsuit, this is our summertime!!
