This seems like a decent fare to Easter Island. Anyone interested?

Great fare. Is a $200 add on to MEX-SCL fare. Worth reading routing rules, sometimes LAN files rules that allow
unconventional routings that allow return via a US city. Some past fares have also allowed free add ons to pther mexican cities (like SJD) but alas not this one.

Is a SCL stopover allowed? Seems like it wasn't allowed in the past but I can't remember for sure. Would be a huge bonus for itinerary to end in USA or even Canada.

fare rules state that three stopovers are allowed...one free and two at $100 each.

Category 8: Stopover restrictions
3 STOPOVERS PERMITTED ON THE PRICING UNIT
LIMITED TO 1 FREE AND 2 AT USD 100.00 EACH.

Just booked this fare on expedia! However the LATAM site just gives me an Error 404 message, so hopefully this isn't a mistake fare.

Thanks to the OP!

begs the question that stephenm refers to above of what other routings are allowed. would be very interested if a return via a US city was legal...but transiting MEX twice on separate tickets...ugh...

I'm not saying it can be done with this fare, just that in the past LA have used a template for MEX fares and sometimes forgotten to pull out sections that allow transit via US, and thus avoid MEX on the return. Other fares have allowed transit via other cities in Mexico, like SJD, making interesting for west coasters. Someone needs to go thru the listed flight numbers in the fare rules to see what those yield. My cursory read is travel must be MEX- S America.

BTW, for stopovers there is no HIP exception but at least MEX-SCL is lesser fare than MEX-IPC so stopover there would be free. That would be a nice trip, SCL and IPC!

Sample itinerary: Mexico City-Lima-Buenos Aires-Santiago-Isla de Pascua





The segment between Buenos Aires - Santiago is all-Economy class flight, if I recall correctly.

That's some creative routing, AHO. It also looks like possible via GRU, so that would be MEX-LIM-GRU-SCL-IPC.

Except the GRU-SCL segment, each segment is over 2,000 miles which means you get 140 TP each. That's a lot of BA Tier points right there!

I can't help but notice that economy is exactly the same price. Cause for concern?

It is a "Z" fare (business). My seats are selected on the LAN website in biz.

Thanks guys, the EZE routing ticks a number of boxes for us, very tempting. Need to hammer away at this one to see what else it might permit. Ticket by 30 July i think the rules say...
