AeroMexico has pretty decent fares for long weekend trips from Chicago O’Hare to Paris. And the prices are currently available from July through December!

Plus, the trip is projected to earn over $5900 MQD and 22,400 MQD when credited to a Delta SkyMiles account!

The going rate is $1742 for stays lasting a couple of days. (If you want to simply do immediate turnarounds and enjoy a weekend in Paris, those fares start at about $2042.)

The trip is estimated to travel 14,802 miles. This is an AeroMexico “I” fare — so your MQD earnings will be 40% of the distance flown. That comes out to $5920 MQD — more than three times the amount of your airfare!

Plus, the Unofficial SkyMiles Calculator estimates the trip will yield 22,426 MQM and 29,900 redeemable SkyMiles (before applicable Medallion bonuses.)

The flights between Mexico City and Paris are scheduled for 787 Dreamliners — so you’ll be able to get some rest in lie-flat beds!

I like the idea of hitting some Christmas markets, so I selected December dates. Here’s our example trip:

It’s a business class “I” fare — which is nice because you don’t have to deal with the potential of Y-up issues or anything like that.

Keep in mind you may need to take a COVID before your return to the United States. So make sure to factor that into your stay. (Or just have Juicy Miles figure it out for you.)

Final Approach

If you want to visit Paris, this could be a great opportunity to get there in comfort and earn a bunch of Delta elite status MQD and MQM. Don’t live in Chicago? You have a couple of options. Take a positioning flight to Chicagoland (remember that Delta is awarding MQM on award tickets this year!). Or ask Juicy Miles‘ SkyTeam expert to create a mileage run from your home airport!

Enjoy!

  1. With last month’s FAA downgrade of Mexico’s air-safety rating, which “… ends Delta Air Lines Inc.’s ability to sell tickets on Aeromexico flights and a similar cooperation agreement between Volaris and Frontier Airlines Holdings Inc.,” will these MQDs & Miles actually be creditable?
