DL/SkyTeam: China - Caribbean/South America from $1800 USD rt in Z

Cheapest to Aruba, Bahamas, Jamaica, Netherlands Antilles, Saint Lucia, Dominican Republic, Bermuda in the Caribbean or to Ecuador, Chile in South America. Others also available, but starting at $2k+ which is still a great deal. Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, Puerto Rico, Brazil, and Mexico starts around $2200-2300

MPM fare, so routing is generous. Can also find intra-Asia flights on KE, OZ, MU, CZ, etc

Books into Z class on Delta and earns up to 200% on some programs like Virgin Atlantic:

Say I am looking at Shenzhen to Sao Paolo

How are you searching for cheapest city pairs across multiple dates/trip duration?

I'm just doing a lot of searches. I've seen VCP, but its a bit more expensive and only from HAK so far::

Was able to price $1870 leaving on 8/31 PEK-SCL in D1/F the whole way. 767 outbound & 767/A350 return. So get one leg in D1 suites.

Book fast if you see dates that work, things that 3 hours ago had plenty of space have repriced. Try secondary cities and play with Google Flights...

I'm not hunting for this particular one, but if I were, I'd be using ITA Matrix (Matrix - ITA Software by Google), Nearby cites and Calendar (with a range of dates).

I might experiment with the above to using Nearby on just one end at a time. Or maybe just list the cities possible for me in the Departing From and/or Destination. And when I could see some cities pairs that could work, I'd try different ranges of dates.

The one thing I'd do is do it NOW. Those things go away really fast. Then I'd book immediately, remembering that Delta has 24 hour cancellation for me to think more deeply. And the 24 hours really is until midnight of the second day.
