I thought these are good deals (5/24-6/4)

LAX/SFO/ORD/BOS-SCL $1491
JFK-SCL $1580

Found them on Expedia, maybe from other US cities too

In addition some good fares just coming up in reverse direction (from SCL)

SCL-MIA $1255
SCL-LAX $1275
SCL-IAD $1367

From Flight Network, others will be a little more

https://www.flightnetwork.com/en/sea...22USD%22%7D%7D

Normally the cheapest destinations out of SCL are GUA and CUN at around $1600 USD.

I can find the wide ranges of dates from IAD at the price of US$ 1,500. It's a 12 hours layover in Mexico city on the onward flight. To avoid that, I would like to add a stop-over but the price increase to US$ 2,400. How can I add a stop over with US$50 as fare rules ?

It was on sale for only $1K less than a year ago.

Still a good fare.

If you dig around on EF, you can see more than just AM and more than just those cities. I found DL YVR-LIM for US$1300 AI w really nice connections on the outbound. The 2am return and longer layovers is not so nice though. Flatbed for the long segment ATL-LIM but an aging 767.

Depending on where you live, more like $1000/$1100/$1400/$1600 from MCO/JFK/DTW/SEA, the first 2 are really good deals but many of us had to reposition to AM's gateway cities. This time around it's offered to most AM gateway cities up north and on the west coast.

I didn't even bother with deals to LIM as it flies 737s.

Good point.

Lima was what, $500-$600 from ORD in J? With early morning layover and enough time for showers and additional zzz at MEX both ways, I thought it was the perfect MR. It was 4 to 5 hours+ of flying at each segment, and I thought that was more than tolerable in the 737.

Interesting that I can get a fare out of LAX on Expedia for about $1700 (on certain dates), but replicating it exactly on AMs website it is over $7000

For those with concrete schedules and are willing to take certain risks, eDream has it down to $1438 USD from ORD. Just validated the pricing at the site.

Replicates fine for me on AM's website, are you sure you're not looking at the refundable fare option (premier vs comfort)?

You are correct, I was looking at Premier, not Comfort. Appreciate you pointing that out!

Senior discount?

The other discounts section of the fare rules speaks of 15% senior discount for flyers 60 and over. Apparently, one has to call in to AM to book those.

Anyone try yet?
