I know, IB website is a piece of caca, but all my bookings (and there are a lot), are OK, except for THIS one. Anyway, on Saudia website, the booking is still alive .

In any case the current 1k fare is not bad either as it's fully flex J that allows unlimited stopovers and free cancellation. Some creative routings seem to work like SCL-MAD-LHR-AGP on the return.
Has anyone managed a stopover in / routing via North America by any chance (on the 1k fare)?

No the fare has a routing map (posted upthread) which does not allow this.

ah you're heading out already? Mine isn't until next year so maybe they haven't gotten to my ticket yet.

The weird thing is I was able to use the original PNR that Amex gave me on IB website and changed seats and requested a confirmation email. However, when I try the same PNR again on IB website, it just says it's not valid. I then tried the different booking reference and ticket number in the email and it worked

Agreed, the airline typically still takes awhile to fix after deals land in this forum. It's only when it shows up on say, TPG that it's gone within an hour

Just wanted to update that when I chose flights it showed Business for MAD-SCL and for the return Economy SCL-LIM and Business LIM-MAD. I hadn't really looked at the confirmation email because it was late. I just went to choose the seats for SCL-LIM and Premium Business came up as $0.00 so I chose my three seats. I went back and looked more closely at the confirmation email and the SCL-LIM is showing as business class as well. Still not hopeful this will hold but as of now my reservation is still holding. I booked with Priceline.

They will be happy to give you back your money if you cancel the flight or if you want to change it, you will have to pay the actual difference, around 3k euros.
Oh I surely wonder how DL treated a whole $2700 KE Full Flex First (fare basis FRT) tickets from JFK to DPS.

Miles crediting to AA or AS?

Are you sure about this? From reading on AAdvantange, it seems that the crediting from IB operated flights is only when IB is the ticket holder, but all of those are Latam 045 stock. Have you had experience with this scenario before?

Nope, online checkin is always availible with IB. My trip is (was?) booked for April 2023

These bookings do not look to be made correctly - hence the 5 symbol "PNR" for IB. AFAICT, IB site sees these as external (Sabre?) bookings, which just happen to list IB flights. Hence no check in or seat selection.
