AM: LAX/LAS/ORD/JFK to UIO... $860 and earn close to 3000 MQDs

For Delta flyers that need to top-up their MQD spend, Aeromexico has several sales from the USA to Quito, Ecuador starting at $830. This is not as cheap as in the past, but considering we are close to year end, a MQD run might be useful for certain flyers... since Aeromexico credits MQDs at 40% of flown distance...

Excellent find. Thank you.
Can't seem to find any quick turns from JFK with more than one 787 leg. I've never been terribly impressed with AM 737 J.

Found both JFK MEX on the 787s but the times are not great... the 787 on the return leaves MEX at 710 making it hard for connections...

Word of warning to others - I did 3 of these runs earlier in the year from a Dec 2017 Sale identical to this and it is an absolute pain to get these to credit to Delta. Took 2 + Weeks to post after countless emails back and fourth sending receipts, confirms, boarding pass scans etc.

Rather than wasting time trying to correct your Dl number online, just make sure you give the check-in agents manually enter the number, this is the easiest way. There's a glitch on AM's website regarding FFP.

Once your boarding passes have DL numbers things were much easier.

I also did three of these (Jan, Feb, and Apr) from that Dec 2017 sale. 2 of the 3 credited pretty quickly and correctly, the third one was a pain, I think because I was due 200% MQM (purchased before the shift to 150% MQM for flights in C,D, I) but I flew after the shift occurred on 1Apr. That required a fair amount of coordination, including sending boarding passes. I have yet to understand why an airline requires a piece of paper as verification when their computer should already have the information, but I digress.

I have another trip coming up in a couple of weeks, will try to report out how the crediting goes.

I did a couple AM runs for DL and same thing, when it auto-credits, great. Otherwise, PITA.

WHERE ARE THE RATIOS JFKEZE?
