Business Class – American: New York – Santiago de Chile, Chile. $902. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

AMAZING! Business Class for under $1,000. The funny thing is the coach fare is more expensive for travel during the same period! We were in Santiago de Chile in 2011. We used Santiago de Chile as a base to visit Valparaiso, wine country, and Easter Island (if you have American Express Membership Rewards points or Chase Ultimate Rewards, transferring 25K into British Airways will let you redeem a roundtrip ticket in coach between Santiago de Chile and Easter Island with LAN Airlines).
