HB did you already have the card or did you just get it for this deal?

If you not yet have the card (Citi AA EXE or Prestige), right now it may be too late to get one just for this deal.

Yup, I paid the same price.
One person was $1540. The second person has to pay 560 for fuel surcharge and 129 for tax.
From ITA, Q 280 from SFO-MEX and Q 280 from MEX-SFO. Is that the fuel surcharge?

Can you get miles and MQM (on Delta) for both tickets if you use the 2-4-1?

might make more sense to position to ORD if you have the elite MC; I fares ex-ORD are around 1200, J fares are ~1500. Whereas ex-BOS J inventory is a lot more expensive.

Just booked SFO to EZE over Christmas. Paid for the extra "premier" (ended up $1575 ai) so it is fully refundable just in case Not bad layovers or flight times.

I used a MasterCard and it went through, but I did get a call from the fraud department making sure I had authorized it.

Now gotta start my research... visa, lounges in SFO-Mexico City-EZE, hotels, etc etc.

If ITA shows "D" for the exact same flights, dates, AND price; then I would assume that's what's being sold to you by AeroMexico.

For earning Delta Skymiles; C,D, and I are the same 150%. "J" is 200%.
I'd certainly be careful if AS only wants to pay miles on "D".

To be sure, I suppose you can call the airline. This isn't an error fare.

I definitely prefer bulkhead seats. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether row 1 or 5 on the 788 is better?

Thanks. That's what I booked. But I'm still thinking of another round trip. This kind of deal makes Diamond a lot more achievable.

Interesting. The website clearly says 3/31/2016. T&Cs say t it does have to be booked into J. I haven't been able to find anything in J worth booking (from MIA), since I'm late to the party.

Trying to talk with a different rep but now the flights I wanted end of March are sold out. She says her system is letting her confirm companion seat after 12/31/15 even though terms says it is ok.
