From Mexico City, you can connect through Mexico, Central America, and South America. The South American destinations:

Delta is the American member of SkyTeam, so I went to to see if Delta miles can book AeroMexico award space at the moment. I found this itinerary on October 18 from Chicago to Buenos Aires on AeroMexico flights.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 2.07.07 AM

If Alaska had access to AeroMexico award space, the same exact flights would be 45,000 Alaska miles. I searched for the same flights, and just like Alaska’s website promises, they are indeed unavailable.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 2.08.28 AM

  1. Is this temporary? Cause I have been trying to book a return flight from either Argentina or Chile on Jan 2, 2016 to MIA. Any suggestion on other alternatives using award miles? Thank you

  2. So just what is this ‘Technical difficulty’ ? How long does it take to sort out one of those? I suspect there is major re-negotiation of their partnership arrangement going on which may see Aeromexico disappear from the lineup. Ditto for KoreanAir and KLM.

    • Your guess is as good as mine. As a frequent South America traveler, I don’t like this news. I even have an Alaska/AeroMexico award this month, so luckily I don’t need to change it, since that is unavailable too.
