Also, for what its worth, I am still seeing seemingly bookable space at the ~329 rate on some dates when booking via a mobile. The space is NOT pricing this way from the desktop.

From the app. I could not online checkin and had to show the QR code at the airport before the agent would check me in in the US. Was also confirmed via the BA app prior to checkin for my LHR-BCN leg. Oh, and you are required to wear masks on the plane.

.
It has only been removed for those in possession of an EU vaccination certificate or equivalent.
Be aware that without a booster the validity of a vaccination certificate is limited to 270 days.

Anyone saying that AA won't credit this because it's on 045 ticket stock is full of it. Airlines reissue tickets on other airlines all the time, if AA had irrops and put me on UA, my ticket would still be on 001 stock and not 016 stock. But that new flight would credit just fine to UA (or any other Star Alliance partner)... and in those situations probably could still get Original Routing Credit to AA as well. Those double dipping opportunities during IRROPS are great, and solid proof that ticket stock means nothing to mileage credit.

LATAM has no intention to honor their segments at least.
What about the tickets issued on the 075 stock, like myself? I suppose that's in addition to the 3000 tickets?

Because it was a LATAM fare, that allowed IB marketed flights. I reckon a temporary drop in IB availability was when IB realised what was happening before LA has woken up and pulled the fare out.

How would that work? it's a LATAM ticket and LATAM is on the hook to pay Iberia for carrying their pax... so LATAM will let people fly let's say MAD-GRU, but deny their boarding at the gate in GRU before connecting flight to SCL? that makes no sense to me and also that's 600 for the pax thanks to the EC261/2004 regulation.

I am intrigued about that part too. But we all know that IB (or LA) are not notoriously famous for their great customer service and also for respecting the rules - including the EU261/2004. Very curious about how this will evolve and the experience of the ones flying this fare in the next couple weeks...

That part should be easy at least for the UK based folks - assuming people paid with a credit card, Section 75 offers some protection; for the EC261/2004 regulation a simple MCOL request should be enough since Iberia and LATAM have offices in the UK

So, that kept the numbers presumably somewhat low, but because of the low fare, still a substantial number was booked. If this was posted during European day time it would have been even more, probably double, but the airlines may have also pulled it earlier......you know, after their flash sale quotas were met...
I stayed up all night just for this deal
Also, did you know that Spanish people sleep during the day and live at night?
and I think Spanish people would benefit the most from this flash sale as they don't need feeder flights.

LIM / GIG/ EZE and others with 2 flights a day each with 30 seats per plane. So a few weeks of capacity ... averaged out across the year it isn't that much.

Yeah, and we all dance flamenco, play the guitar, sleep siesta, love bullfights, wear "sevillana" dress, eat paella and are generally lazy...

Just yesterday I killed 3 bulls myself; no bull killed so far today, as I am still sleeping

Let's kill this one right away.

There is no right to EU Reg. 261/04 comp. for cancellation more than 14 days out and this is not a denied boarding situation as there is no (valid) ticket.

Why is there no valid ticket?

There is a right to rerouting in case of cancellation under EU261, no matter when the cancellation occurs.
But obviously they would claim that EU261 doesn't apply because they'd say there was never a binding contract to begin with.
