Nice sale with Aeromexico for travel between Calgary and Santiago de Chile via Vancouver and Mexico City. The YYC-YVR segments are on WestJet but with AM codes so make it hard to credit to Delta. This represents a significant savings over the YVR-SCL fare.

You can schedule some long layovers in Mexico City which would allow you to explore the city since you can reach the Zocalo via metro, 45 minutes to an hour both ways and see the Cathedral, National Palace and Rivera Murals, and the Templo Mayor or if you have some more time you can venture out to Teotihuacán which is an ancient Mesoamerican city located 30 miles (50 km) northeast of modern-day Mexico City.

We are only calculating from YVR the Mileage earning as the short YYC-YVR segment is on an AM code which might complicate crediting the flight to Delta since it's not clear on the Delta website how codeshares of non-SkyTeam partners work.

YVR-SCL would earn 19599 MQMs 5226 MQDs 3.43 MQD Ratio while Delta Diamond members would obtain  41811 RDMs, Platinum 36585 RDMs, Gold 33972 RDMs, Silver 31358 RDMs, Base 26132 RDMs
