AV: JFK - LIM, $660ish
 
Avianca, JFK - LIM with a stop in BOG/UIO, several dates in April 2018 (April 11 - April 22, +/- 3 days), $660 or so depending on booking site.

Also can add a stopover in UIO for a total of about $730

Most flights are on A330 which should be "angled flat", I think. Or did Avianca complete the switch to the new lie flat seats?

I flew AV on JFK-BOG 7AM flight and it was lie flat, but the whole 330 fleet has not been refurbished yet

'those'?

Would you be able to provide a link of this deal? The best I can do $860 is by forcing a connection in Bolivia (LPB or VVI)

I'm seeing availability from Nov - Feb on Google Flights. Can't post URLs yet due to forum rules.

There is a 2-stop return through UIO/BOG. No lie flats.

br2k Oct 17, 17 3:12 pm

I've got it with a 1 stop through BOG both on the way out and back (although 2 stop return was more common)

How do you check wrt. lie flats?
FWIW The seat assignments I have do not match the seat map for the old A330 config.

Try this link: https://www.kayak.com/flights/NYC-LI...xible/business

I suspect this rate will be gone fairly soon, though.

Million thanks, I think I'm just going for a long weekend getaway for Cusco, and the miles alone will be worth it. I believe this is JFK-Ecuador fares with LIM as one of the permitted stopover cities.

p.s. It has limited dates and only on certain OTAs. But you can force it on expedia.com by creating multi-city booking, JFK-UIO,UIO-LIM, and LIM-JFK, the first 2 the same day in case you don't want to stay in Quito.

As of a few minutes ago, the fare (JFK-LIM w/ 2 stops in BOG and UIO) can still be found on Google Flights, with purchase available on on Cheap-o-Air. However, before clicking the purchase button, I researched on Seat Guru and the particular flight I looked at would be an old Airbus A330-200 (332) configuration ("angle flat"), which, according to the reviews, is not very comfortable. The pictures also depict an old-looking business class cabin. Based on those factors, and having to make 2 short stops, I'm going to pass on this one. If I was trying to make status or earn miles usable in the Star Alliance, I might think about this harder, but I'm an AA flyer so this trip would do nothing for increasing my EQDs or EQMs.

Was able to replicate using multicity to Lima using UR, half day layover in Bog on way in and Uio on way out. Thanks OP.

Thanks for the tip, vincewy! Was able to duplicate and book in Expedia just now.

vincewy Oct 17, 17 10:04 pm

By forcing multi-city booking like JFK-UIO,UIO-LIM,LIM-JFK, the availability seems wide open. If you plan to have a long layover in Ecuador you can replace UIO with GYE for a little bit more (like $10) due to Quito's altitude.

p.s. They are still there so book now, you can always cancel within 24 hours at expedia.com. Last year AV had $450 LAX/ORD-Peru and there was no issue at all from AV.

This deal (probably scrubbed from this post) was posted on secretflying - no wonder it's gone.
They also state it's an error fare (how exactly do *they* know - as if they have any extra insight into these things :) ).

soy Oct 17, 17 10:22 pm

Secretflying are idiots - they call everything an error, even when it clearly is not.

vincewy Oct 17, 17 10:55 pm

Fares are still alive and going, I would book it now if you need *A miles, it's 150% for most FFPs.
