If you’re based on the East Coast and need a little Caribbean sunshine — even just a few hours of it! — check out this Aeromexico business class run from JFK to Santo Domingo (SDQ)!

It’s estimated to earn 12,054 MQM & $3,214 MQD when you book the Aeromexico itinerary and credit the run to your Delta SkyMiles account. (Read more about Delta partner trips — and why you can earn more MQD.) The trip currently costs $901.85. It’s certainly not as amazing as the deal we saw last summer — but still a pretty darn good fare for winter.

You can do a quick turn or stay a couple of days. Plus, many weekend dates are available — which works great for those with Monday-Friday jobs.

The trip is bookable on Aeromexico.com. If you can’t find seats on Aeromexico’s site, however, begin your search at JustFly, which earns $16 through Top Cashback.

There are, of course, Y-UP fares. There have been, in the past, some issues with getting correct credit with Y-UPs from AeroMexico. All data points suggest this problem has been fixed — but be sure to save all your boarding passes and follow these steps to make sure you get the correct credit.

Like the JFK to Quito run we posted Saturday, dates are available as soon as next month — with a bunch in February and March!

In Mexico City, cardholders of the Platinum Card from American Express and Business Platinum Card from American Express can access the MEX Centurion Lounge.

  1. I did this exact run earlier this month. MQM credited were 12,040, MQD were 3,210, and redeemable SkyMiles were 8,026 base plus a Diamond bonus of 17,658.

  2. I was going to comment that by my math, you would get closer to 3210 MQD, but it looks like Matt beat me to it with actual data. 🙂 I do think the RDM for that fare class of 8026 + 100% bonus (according to the Delta website) for that fare class, so you would get 16052 before medallion bonus. I assume that the medallion bonus is calculated based on the base miles and not the fare class bonus, so the total for a Diamond would be 25684, which is what Matt’s seemed to come out to.

    Thanks for pointing this one out, looks like there is solid availability, so it is definitely in my future!
