No Aeromexico award availability after Sep 30, 2013?

Can't seem to book anything beyond September 30, 2013 on the AM site. Similar issues trying to find AM awards on DL beyond September 30. Seems very odd. Anyone know what is going on?

Sept. 30, 2013 is the new date (corrected from the 2012 date erroneously reported in the media) for the end of the world on the Mayan calendar. AM learned it first, logically. I'm using all of my ff miles, and selling off my investments, asap. On the plus side, no 2013 taxes to pay next year!

Huh? The nonstop aeromexico flights you are showing as available via KVS don't show up when I go to delta.com or aeromexico.com to check award availability.

Actually, these non-stop AM flights will show-up on DL.com if you search by Schedule:

Aeromexico changes there award classes starting 10/01/13. That must be the problem.

Would you be able to provide a reference or more details?

Just got off the phone with DL tech support. I was having a problem booking AM award flights that showed up as available on DL. He said that AM is changing the codes for flights after 9/30/13. Basically CU is changing to OX. DL hasn't loaded the inventory properly so that's why it's not possible to book. For example, LAX-MEX on 10/1/13 can't be booked until .dumb fixes the problem.

I'm having the same issue trying to book AM flights with DL miles post Sept-13.

Has anyone determined if or when DL.dumb will be updated? This is VERY frustrating and I really wish there was a work-around....

Issue seems to be fixed for me. I can now book LAX-MEX. That said, they may not have found or corrected all the glitches so you might want to call .dumb to make sure they are aware of your specific problem.

And now 12 hours later delta.dumb is broken again. Sometimes it will book, sometimes it will error out, grrr.

I too am having issues. Sometimes the flights for AeroMexico will come up on delta.com , sometimes they won't. Delta insists that AeroMexico now has to reserve in 'X' bucket, which I generally agree with, but delta.com is letting me make booking for some segments that do not have 'X' available like MIA - MEX or even MEX-PVR.
