Airfare ticket to Recife from Milan

I decided to visit Recife on a vacation. Recife was on the offer as a package vacation where in the final price, accommdation as well as airfare ticket to Recife by Meridiana airlines were included. The ticket was issued for a flight taking off fro Recife on Monday and returning from Recife again a week later on Monday. The service aboard Meridiana was very decent for a charter airline company. Recife was a great place with stunning beaches so after a few days I decided to stay for another week. Unfortunately, there was no ticket available to return from Recife on Monday a week later. I tried to book a ticket from Recife with another airline, but none of them flew to Milan. So, I stayed in Recife only for a week.

Visiting Recife with an airfare ticket for the first class

I visited Recife last year. I was invited to Recife for a short visit by my Brazilian business partner so my costs were covered by his company. I flew with Air France from Paris to Rio de Janeiro on a ticket for the economy class, and then they booked my ticket with Avianca Brasil from Rio to Recife in the first class. Even if I did not pay for the ticket, I wondered how expensive the airfare ticket to Recife must have been, much more expensive than if the ticket was issued for the economy class. The service aboard both Air France and Avianca Brazil was very good. Recife is a beautiful city. I would love to return to Recife again, even if this time I am not invited and I have to pay for my plane ticket to Recife. Hopefully I will find a reasonable ticket.
