EVEN BETTER: Business Class from Various US Cities to Central/South America From $513 Roundtrip

Earlier today I wrote about two amazing fares,

Both of these are Aeromexico fares widely available through the end of the schedule. They’re a SkyTeam airline, part-owned by Delta, and on their Boeing 787s they have fully flat beds.

It turns out that there are even better fares and from even more cities. Fly4Free highlights roundtrip business class fares starting at $513 from Orlando, Chicago, Los Angeles or New York to Lima, Peru on Aeromexico.

And Secret Flying has $616 business class roundtrips to several cities on Star Alliance carrier Avianca: Panama City $616; Lima $644; Cartagena $650, and Quito $653.

As I say when amazing airfares pop up, 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. Cheap Avianca biz class deals have been around to some of these destinations on and off for past year. I remember looking at some ~$600 fares NYC to Santa Cruz/La Paz Bolivia about 6 months ago. But It’s the ancient Avianca and TACA A 319 and 320 recliners. Think Copa regional Business at best. Good fare if you need the miles or transportation but really not a premium product.

  2. Avianca cancelled my brother’ and his wife’s flight to Bolivia a few days or a week before it was scheduled to depart. He was on the phone with them for hours to try to get his miles returned to United. No success. He’s going to try to have United fight for him. Don’t know how successful that will be. He had to use a bundle of miles to fly business class on American. I think I’ve heard other people having difficulties with Avianca. What’s the consensus?

  3. Avianca has very sh*tty customer service in my experience, but if he used United miles, he shouldn’t have fought with Avianca, United must do it for him. My flight to Bogota was canceled as well 2 months ago due to the strike probably, and United returned the miles. Took a couple of phone calls, mind you, but I would’ve raised hell if they’d refused.
