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.

- Route: JFK-MEX-SDQ-MEX-JFK

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!
