Matrix shows this fare can be routed LAX-JFK-MIA-UIO for scattered dates over the next year for around $725. Not the most direct routing, but probably the most comfortable.

There are also a bunch of other routings for around $670 with an extra transfer in the US that would add 80TP total. For example LAX-PHX-DFW-UIO has good availability into next year.

If you are in it just for the tier points go LAX-MIA-DFW-UIO round trip at ~$800 for 640TP.

I briefly considered this, but the return options ex-UIO are brutal. Either a redeye in recliners to MIA or DFW, or an equally awful 6am departure to MIA.

Yeah UIO is an bit of a weird airport when it comes to there long haul departures. European flights leave semi-normal departure times late evening and fly into Europe at lunch. Of course if everything goes to plan if something happens and you have to re-clear immigration your in for a 5 hour wait. When I was there I found the US bound departures just awfully timed. They all left basically at night. The only one with a good departure was Delta as they had a daytime flight.
Of course we all know why the departures are so late. No time zone difference and them wanting to get the plains back before more or less 6 am.

I can understand why AA has the redeyes to MIA and DFW, but not why their second MIA flight is at 6am, arriving in MIA at 10am. Do they really run a 12pm bank of connections?

I think it more then do with aircraft utilization. Because they don't want the planes sitting on the ground for too long. As is often the problem with US-South America routes.
