Yes, saw it too... on the details of the fare, it shows:
Date Filed:Apr 1, 2008 15:03

Unfortunately DL does not offer any mileage credit for Avianca; (they do but K fare does not qualify)

yeah, we see way too many fares w/o taxes and surcharges here.
Even for $236 it's not bad with almost 10k miles ... but where to bank them?

Maybe it's similar to the Atlanta deal. I think the ATL-SCL/LIM/UIO/BOG deal is even still running.

I also got this FareCompare email alert. When I try to price out the (August 7 - August17) ticket on days when the fare shows availability, the only available price is $796. Am I missing something?

Cheapest flights shown have long (7+ hours) layover in BOG. Ouch! Traveling with the kids with such a long layover may be a bit difficult.

On ITA, I was able to find a $515 all-in Delta/Aviana SEA-BOG flight for May.
Note that on the search results page, it showed $689, but when I clicked through, it went down to $515.

I am finding the fare bookable on kayak.com for $261.rt (all-in)

To puchase, Kayak links you airfare.com

The earliest dates I can find on Kayak are beginning in September.
