Also if you're flexible with dates/times you can get the AM 787 both ways - ex:

Since the AM ticket books into I class, when crediting to Delta, one will earn 6,270 MQM, 8,360 RDM (potentially more based on Delta status, if applicable), and $1,672 of MQD. While not as rewarding as last year's offer of sub $600 to Lima, or $1K to SCL, this is great way to get a lot of miles and qualifying spend for a fraction out of pocket.

that is a great deal but why in the world would anyone take AM over DL on this route? DL's soft product is WAY better than AM's. It's not even close. DL actually has an improved soft product on this route. But even if it wasn't i m proved, it would be heads and shoulders still over AM's.

surely just for the partner earning potential, right? I missed out on the AM cheap business fares earlier in the year, but that's the only reason I would

I quite enjoyed the AM 789 on my last JFK-MEX flight in C.

This.

And, IMO, the soft product on AM flights is pretty good. Also, I really like the amenity kit it provides on long-haul flights.

Booked 2 LHR-MEX-EZE returns on AM's website. Site confirmation showed 'Premier' but e-mail shows economy. E-tickets show premier but E and R fare codes!

Is it a promo!?

Wow, this would've been a major error fare but I checked and it's gone.

Anyway, the fare is now sitting at $600 (JFK-MEX) if anyone is interested (Feb 28th - Mar 5th)

For those needing to re-position, check AM's options from your city if DL goes to JFK.

I just got CLE-JFK-MEX for $683, this includes Dreamliners on both JFK-MEX segments along with protected connections.

Yeah. Just wondering what is the next step to take. I have a screengrab showing the booking e-ticket number and as 'premier cabin' with 2 checked bags, but the e-mail confirmation shows economy with 1 bag. So I'm going to have to contact them and argue that I booked a promo fare (as displayed in the above screengrab).

The site is now showing the same booking at over 15,000!

I was trying to book AUS-ATL-MEX-CUN-MEX-SLC-AUS yesterday and today. It was showing $613 in Premier (D/I) on DL metal but then after I'd select my return flight I kept getting error messages that something went wrong and I needed to call AM. Yeah, went through that trying to book hubby's MR that he's doing in 2 days - they told me they booked him in biz (D/I) but then when the confirmation came it was actually in E which defeats the purpose of buying the ticket via AM.

Does anyone have any news about this deal? Nobody had the chance to fly so soon? The airline has not contacted us yet. E-ticket I have Premier, but of course the economy of the reservation. If the airline does not contact me and cancel the reservation 14 days before departure, can I go to EU261/2004? In this case I would be entitled to 75% of the ticket price back. The only problem is that I have to deal with the connections to London.
