This run is a whole bunch of ugly but the yield is sweet. There are scattered dates all of 2019 and you will have to tinker to not have REALLY long layovers. Most of the combinations I have found require an overnight in Mexico City so that does add to the cost of this run – know this.

Start at TCB for $16 back

Easy to find flights on JustFly

Next up is the fact you can not seem to book this one AeroMexico (I can find one-way but not return flights – maybe you will do better). You can book starting at TopCashBack sending you to Justfly.com to save $16 per ticket (I have done this many times in the past). A #ProTip – do NOT pay for seats or anything else at Justfly as you can pick free on AeroMexico later. Also know you have NO ZERO ZIP free cancellation time on Justfly.com

What you should earn on an I fare credit to Delta SkyMiles flying AeroMexico

This  is  a “Y-UP” fare  so there is a chance you may have to fight with Delta if AeroMexcio does not code this correctly and send over the data to Delta for the full “I” class published fare.

Here are the numbers:

  • 6398 Miles flown
  • 9597 MQMs (1.5x distance flown for “I” fare)
  • $524 ticket price yields 5.5CPM (for the elite mqm points)
  • 12,796 SkyMiles + Medallion bonus (Diamond + 120% i.e. an extra 7,678; Platinum + 80%; Gold + 60%; Silver + 40%)
  • $2,560 MQD credit (ticket price does not matter only 40% of distance flown as MQD dollar credit to Delta)

Again, if you book this – go in with eyes wide open that it may take work to get the published credit you should receive. At the same time the cheap price and massive rewards may be worth it for this fun run!
