Usual warning with crediting Aeromexico to Delta...
I've even used Twitter to get reconfirmations that the fare is in Business Class and credits as such... Yes, it shouldn't be such a hassle... "Average Joe Flyer" doesn't understand Y-ups and if Ticket says Business, email says Business, Boarding Pass says Business it should credit properly, but keep a paper trail: all Boarding Passes, request that your SkyMiles number be added at Check in and keep screenshots of the purchase email and other communications indicating that it is a Business Class fare... After all these are not "flash sales" but normal market prices...
