AM: Various Canada - South America in biz under $1400 CAD

I've been keeping track of this itinerary on momodo for the past few months for a trip in mid September. The trip is less likely now, but Momodo told me the price had dropped to about 2K, and I found an even better price on GF for the same itinerary. I've never seen this route so cheap for business class, with reasonable stopovers in MEX. MEX-EZE on 787-9.

Unable to post URL's or attachments yet, but this was easily found on GF. My trip went from Sept 4-25. I didn't search for alternate departure or arrival points.

Good Find.

Also available on Google Flights :

Available from YYZ also for around $200 more but painful layovers in MEX.

Can't see anything below CAD 1770 for YYZ - GRU. Sample dates for $1100 CAD fare?

Try 10/24 - 11/2, AM's low fares have been up since last weekend so certain dates may already be gone. Out of Canada this is the lowest I have seen to GRU, SCL, and EZE. Also only a little higher to SCL.

Also labor day weekend like 9/5-9/14 YYZ-SCL for $1265 CAD.

Got it to SCL, thank you! Still trying to search for EZE.

Saw the deal online for Y...I'm not terribly interested in the AM business class and have no major need for skyteam miles, but I can't seem to find the prices the blogs are showing. I am seeing $1307 in J, anyone coming up with the <$500CAD in economy?

Never flown AM hence quick question for newbie.....looks like business books in D. If you credit miles to AM club premier FF, how many status miles would one get with the goal of becoming Titanium (currently have no status). I believe Titanium requires 100k. Does COS bonus qualify towards Titanium?

Iíve flown AM Clase Premiere before...itís not bad depending on the cabin crew. Iíve never see YYZ-EZE this low. Last year I would have jumped on this for a summer trip, but this year, after having had five flights cancelled between March and June, Iím not risking making another booking. Plus, AM isnít offering ďworry free bookingĒ like other airlines are right now.

It's even worse, they aren't refunding for the flights they cancelled (like many other airlines, to be fair).

AM's product is so-so. IMO it tends to be a great deal for acquiring MQDs, and it's not _bad_, but if you were just comparing product with, even say, Delta, ignoring price, you'd be disappointed.

Be flexible and looks like out of YYZ all 3 cities are available and should be under $1400 CAD range from Expedia (not showing up on AM's own site at the moment), when I sampled 10/24-11/3 and 9/5-9/14 (w/o GRU)

YYZ-SCL $920 USD
YYZ-GRU $846 USD
YYZ-EZE $923 USD

I'm sure other dates are available too.

Available for Christmas 2020 - NY 2021

Prices are even lower now, including Xmas, YYZ-SCL/GRU 12/24-1/2 from $1146 CAD (GRU) and $1365 CAD (SCL)

https://www.aeromexico.com/en-ca/boo..._C0_I0_PH0_PC0

https://www.aeromexico.com/en-ca/boo..._C0_I0_PH0_PC0

https://www.aeromexico.com/en-ca/boo..._C0_I0_PH0_PC0 (if you need EZE as part of the trip since return from EZE doesn't have this low fare)

Outside Xmas you can get it down to as low as $777 USD YYZ-SCL on certain days from Expedia (not all are available from AM directly)

https://www.kayak.com/flights/YYZ-SC...09-14/business

On Kayak make sure you checkmark "Show longer flights" under "Flight Quality" to enable some AM fares.

Updates: all low fares around 12/15 - 1/3 out of YYZ and ORD are gone. Let's wait and see if something else will come up. No way would I pay $4000 - 10K for this.

Yvr - scl c$1,097

I finally pulled the trigger on this after thinking about it for a week, booked for the second week in December, a week ago they only gave this fare to the end of November. First time flying Aeromexico, and way cheaper than Star Alliance in economy. Booked through Expedia.ca

Update, I'm now getting notifications from momondo that YVR-EZE in Biz is $CAD 1030 for September. Seems to be dropping from many different departure points, crazy low price for this route.
