Amazing Fare: Business Class Roundtrip LA – Lima, Peru Just $659

On the heels of the $1091 roundtrip from New York to Chile in business class there’s also a $659 roundtrip from Los Angeles to Lima, Peru on Aeromexico.

Here’s a sample itinerary:

Note your aircraft type, on this route it’s 737s rather than 787s that offer a lie flat business product.

Availability for this fare is wide open.

Key details of fare IRPM:

  • Non-refundable with a $200 change fee (and a $150 no show fee)
  • No day, time or length of stay requirements

This fare was spotted for February and March by Secret Flying though it turns out the be much more widely available. They suggested it could be a mistake fare, but I don’t think so, it’s the same fare basis as the New York – Santiago fare, and less flying.

That said given Secret Flying‘s speculation we don’t know for certain how the airline will feel about such a deep discount airfare sale, whether they might get seller’s remorse, I’d wait a few days after buying tickets before making additional non-refundable travel plans around the fare.

In theory an airline refusing to honor a sale like this would have to reimburse any out of pocket costs you incurred but there’s not much history with enforcement of that particular DOT statement so I’d still not test it.

  1. @Gary: “737s rather than 787s that offer a lie flat business product.”

    You mean that it’s not the 787, therefore no lie flat on this route? You don’t mean that 737 offer lie flat on this route. Right?
