(FARE GONE) EWR-YYZ-SCL-EZE-MEX OW in C class at $673 ?? on AC

can get this fare to show up on ITA and also on Orbitz but can not get it too the ticketing stage.

it looks to be an EWR-MEX fare which is somehow allowing longer routings.

can price it on ITA thru SCL, GRU also.

example:

Itinerary:

--- Newark, NJ to Mexico City, Mexico
(36 hrs 20 min, 10051 miles)

Air Canada Flight AC8639 on a Canadair RJ 705 (jet) in business class (operated by AIR CANADA JAZZ)
Departs: Newark, NJ Thur, Dec 27, 6:15p (1 hr 45 min)
(EWR: New York Newark Liberty Int'l)
Arrives: Toronto, Canada Thur, Dec 27, 8:00p
(YYZ: Toronto Lester B Pearson)

--- Layover in Toronto: 2 hrs 10 min ---

Air Canada Flight AC90 on a Boeing 767 (jet) in business class
Departs: Toronto, Canada Thur, Dec 27, 10:10p (10 hrs 10 min)
(YYZ: Toronto Lester B Pearson)
Arrives: Sao Paulo, Brazil Fri, Dec 28, 11:20a
(GRU: Sao Paulo Guarulhos)

--- Layover in Sao Paulo: 12 hrs 35 min ---

AeroMexico Flight AM15 on a Boeing 767 (jet) in business class (meal, movie)
Departs: Sao Paulo, Brazil Fri, Dec 28, 11:55p (9 hrs 40 min)
(GRU: Sao Paulo Guarulhos)
Arrives: Mexico City, Mexico Sat, Dec 29, 5:35a
(MEX: Mexico City Juarez Int'l)

anyone able to price this out and book it? would make for a nice MR

Nice find! Can you get stopovers to book? Or does it invoke the HIP check?

Also, this is confusing: The title says you can route through EZE, but your post is routing via GRU...

Is that available on just these dates or on virtually any?
Got fare rules?
Apologies, but my connection is a bit slow and I'm afraid it will get totally screwed up if I make a complicated booking query.

Strange, expertflyer shows two one-way "C" fares loaded as the name of the fare base. It says MPM fare but I don't see an MPM anywhere
