Hold on to your hats, folks. We found an AeroMexico mileage run. And there are a bunch of available dates this fall.
Seattle to Lima Mileage Run
I heard about a Seattle-Mexico City-Lima roundtrip business class mileage run on AeroMexico. According to the Unofficial SkyMiles Calculator, it travels 9,922 miles. It should code a D-up fare. So when you credit the trip to your Delta SkyMiles account, you should earn:
- $3,968 MQD
- 14,884 MQM
- 19,844 redeemable SkyMiles (before any applicable Medallion bonuses)
Here’s an example run::
AeroMexico charges $1,293 for the trip — and that’s where I’d book. I’ve heard so many nightmares during the past year from people who booked through an online travel agency and ended up getting worked over somehow. Again, just my opinion based on stories people told me.
Some itineraries have you spend 30+ hours in Mexico City. Others (like this) are only four-ish hours. And, as you can see, this has you spend a night in Lima.
“Wait! How Does the Trip Cost $1,293 But Earn $3,968?”
I’m glad you asked! Read this post.
As of this post, there are plenty of available dates from August through October. But when we blog mileage runs, the deals have a tendency to disappear. Why?
- The airline hikes the price ASAP, or
- Lots of people book the trip, or
- Both of the above
“But I Want to Go to Europe or Asia! When Will Those Mileage Runs Return?”
We’re pretty much at the “We Get What We Get” point. I hate to say it.
AeroMexico is not playing ball with giving us options to book trips from North America to Asia or Europe.
We have no idea when or if those opportunities will return.
“Who Can Help Me Find Other Mileage Runs or Assist With Booking This One?”
The mileage run department at point.me (formerly Juicy Miles) creates customized mileage runs based on your budget, airline/alliance preferences, status needs, schedule, etc.
Plus, they monitor your reservations for flight changes, etc. They can even help with hotel bookings, COVID testing, etc.
