LAN – Starting at $464: US – Iguazu Falls, Brazil via Mexico City. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

LAN, the largest airline group in South America is running a special from Mexico City to Iguazu Falls, Brazil. It is reasonably priced for most of us to position to Mexico City (e.g., Chicago and Dallas for around $230 nonstop to Mexico City).

Positioning flights with Air France points for Aeromexico and Delta cities (New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, San Antonio, or San Francisco) or British Airways for American and Alaska cities (Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami and Seattle) with nonstop service would be good value. Starting April 1st, 2013, you can also use British Airways points for US Airways flights from Phoenix and Charlotte to position.
