  • Fare feels too good to be true? Don't call the airline!!!!!!
  • Double check that the fare is actually in Business or First as some online search engines or OTA's confuse booking classes on some airlines.
  • Post as many details as possible about the First / Business fare, including fare class, fare basis, one-way / roundtrip, sales channel, sample dates & total price, including taxes.
  • Post the details within the thread itself and not in the post title field as any information typed here cannot be seen by members accessing the thread using mobile devices.
  • Refrain from posting fare requests or engaging in off topic debates such as fare trends, specific aircraft configuration or visa requirements
  • The deeply discounted international fares discussed here are almost always specific to a certain country of origin, so don't ask if it works in reverse (e.g. a SFO-LHR-SFO fare usually won't work LHR-SFO-LHR). Domestic fares more commonly work in reverse.
  • Last, but not least, Don't call the Airline!

Aa lax-bog $904

AA has LAX-BOG for as low as $904 AI RT. Various dates in September came up. No exotic routings at that lowest fare, just X/MIA for 7,697 BIS/EQM, 11,545 EQP.

Thank you. Yes, I absolutely love these fares. Using my old AS BOGO$99 certs that are bookable in F, these generate a cool 48,592 MQM for $1,926.14, or 3.964 cpMQM! Plus, you can stop in SAN or SEA in each direction! I just wish AS would install more comfortable F seats.

I thought the AS $99 companion fares were no longer good on First class fares??

True, but Mileage Millionaire said "Using my old AS BOGO$99 certs that are bookable in F". AS didn't restrict these until Aug 1, 2012, so old ones are still around.

Air Caraibes does not offer a First class and its pseudo Business class product is closer to a Premium Economy than to a Business class. So the price quoted is not such a great deal, good value but not exceptional

Doubtful. Most airlines never have a decent sale ex-USA. The last really good J deal was ORD-KUL on TK and they have since doubled the price on that.

Great find. This is an amazing opportunity for NYC-based travelers who have US miles and are looking for a multi-stop vacation. Adding a trip to EZE or MVD with a stopover in LIM or BOG or GIG for 30K RT US miles in business gives one a nice mini South America tour at a relatively affordable rate.

If I did same day turnaround in GYE, would I need to pass through customs, pick up luggage and check it back in?

I was thinking BA Avios to go to the Galapagos Islands as the best opportunity here, though the US miles move is good as well. Isn't JJ availability difficult to find though?

I was playing with availability searching the UA site earlier today and found some JJ flights, but my searches were for one person at dates pretty close in. I haven't played with dates in the southern hemisphere summer or much further out at all. The Taca/Avianca flights to the deep south generally aren't on big, fancy planes, but it still strikes me as a great deal.

Awesome call on BA miles to the Galapagos. Your post has gotten me thinking further.
