I couldn’t get a complimentary upgrade from MEX-SCL using my Skyteam Elite Plus elite status, so I decided to use Optiontown and see what my upgrade options were. I wrote a post about Using Optiontown to Get Cheap Business and First Class Upgrades on Aeromexico. I paid $254 for an upgrade from economy class to business class on a Boeing 767-300ER and it was well worth it for a long flight.

Business Class on the 763 is a 2-2-2 configuration. I wanted direct aisle access so I chose the middle aisle.
The hard product is a completely lie flat bed with plenty of space and also contains universal power ports.
The amenity kit was handed out after everyone was seated.
The flight attendant also handed out a bottle of water along with a choice of water, orange juice, or champagne. I chose champagne.
Before taxiing, the flight attendant handed out in-flight menus. The menu read as follows:
Appetizer – Spinach salad served with nuts and raisins. An assortment of bread.
Main Course – Breast of chicken Cordon Bleu presented with sautéed potatoes and cherry tomato OR Spanish and ricotta cheese ravioli sautéed in pomodoro sauce
Cheese – A selection of international cheese accompanied by quince paste
Dessert – (December) Soft banana crepe topped with cream and almond silvers
Appetizer – Fresh seasonal fruit
Main Course – Prosciutto and potato omelette served with mixed vegetables and cherry tomato. An assortment of sweet bread.
After the plane reached cruising attitude, I ordered a coke.
The flight attendant passed out a hot wet towel.
As for dinner, I chose the Breast of chicken Cordon Bleu presented with sautéed potatoes and cherry tomato. It was accompanied by a side salad and a selection of international cheese accompanied by quince paste along with bread.
After dinner, I had the soft banana crepe topped with cream and almond silvers which looked more like a cake and not a crepe.
I fell asleep after dessert and woke up just in time for breakfast. I had fresh seasonal fruit as an appetizer and it came with bread.
Breakfast consisted of a prosciutto and potato omelette served with mixed vegetables and cherry tomato.
The flight was long and I was glad to be able to sleep in a lie flat bed and the service was quick and attentive. The food was decent, but nothing wowed me. I wish there were more choices as far as entrees go. Overall, this is an excellent hard product from Aeromexico since it’s one of their best modern fleets they have.
