Buenos Aires in Business Class for $1500 from ORD or MIA

This is a very hot deal, I personally haven't seen US-Argentina for under $1800 , and once you take into consideration that this deal is valid during peak summer season it's a very hot deal!

Flights from Miami have longish layovers in Mexico City but the Chicago flights have sub 4 hour layovers.

If you are stuck on a longer layover, it's actually very easy to get into town during the day as the Metro runs from the airport and costs as little as 25 cents.

You can ride the metro, as usual be careful and just have a carry-on. It's easy to head into town for some good Mexican food. The National Museum of Anthropology (a beyond excellent way to spend a few hours) is just off the Auditorio stop.

Flight wise all ORD/MIA - MEX flights are operated by Boeing 737 which are similar to US carriers with a 2-2 seating in First/Business Class.

The MEX-EZE are on the new Boeing 787 which in the case of Aeromexico is operated in a 2-2-2 seating.

Food and Service is nothing to write home about, but at this price tag, which has been valid for at least 72 hours as of 6/18, it's well worth it.

This fare can also be booked as a J fare, which would be fully refundable and offers free cancellations.

As far as where to credit this fare, besides the usual SkyTeam partners, which would credit at 125%-150% of flown miles, Alaska Airlines would be a great place to park these miles. This fare would credit at 125% and provide close to 60% of the required miles for Alaska MVP status.

Delta also provides some interesting credit opportunities for this fare which I will cover in another post. :D
