AM - YVR to LIM ~US $750 in J Roundtrip

Limited availability via Aeromexico's website for January - May 2019. I am seeing better availability on non-US based Expedia sites, specifically Expedia.fr.
Books into fare class I (20,344 Skymiles, ~15,000 MQM, and ~4,000 MQD if credited to Delta). Everything on 737s unfortunately.

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong flights, but the only flights I saw in the $750 range were fare class I which is a 150% MQM multiplier. J class were in the 2,000+ range.

I just used J in the title to signify business class. You are correct: the actual fare class is I. I think the mileage numbers in the original post are accurate for fare class I. Sorry for any confusion.

Can also do on DL lieflat for great MQM run.

The DL Y-Up fares are valid from YVR YYC YWG YOW and YYZ. All route through ATL-LIM on 767 D1 lie flat. Although you donít get great redeemable miles, if youíre going for an MQM mileage run, the routing table is amazing. I booked YYZ-SLC-ATL-LIM-ATL-JFK-SEA-YYC-YYZ. The SLC-ATL is A330 DomF lie flat and JFK-SEA is 757 D1 domestic lieflat. Only economy segment is YYC-YYZ due to WS. Over 20k MQMs. If youíre looking for a 24 hour layover in New York, you can get one on most days (ITA Matrix). Approx 5 cpm and in J!

DL sounds good, AM ..... looked into their cheap coach fares, and the overnights in MEX looked horrible. Doubt that that would be any better for biz.

Not to mention reports of transiting in MEX. Nothing but problems, exiting secure area. I'd love to revisit Lima, but not on AM @:-)

The mile numbers are 100% accurate, yes, thank you -- great finds. I'm a little green at this so I just wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong.

Don't see the fare filing at all. Cheapest roundtrip business fare is $1205 USD base (fare code QLNN0XOS) according to EF. Perhaps OP was looking at each-way fares?

Looks like the fare may be gone. It is not showing up in Matrix anymore.

AM fare is not in the GDS anymore, not sure if it had an expiration date. The DL ones expire today, at least that is my recollection from looking at them.
