A good sale for nonstop service to Santiago

If you have an American Express Platinum or Centurion card, you can buy this for cheaper via American Express Travel. Pricing is as follows:

  • New York [JFK] – $1,292 ($1,232 after American Express Travel discount)

On some dates, Avianca has this for about $200 cheaper. But Aviana requires at least one connection in each direction. In addition, Avianca seems to have only recliners business class seats to Santiago. In contrast, LATAM is nonstop and lie-flat business class seats.
