American is celebrating 70 years of serving Mexico and to mark the occasion they’re offering a pretty big fare sale and double AAdvantage Miles.

American Airlines’ first flight to Mexico on September 8, 1942, flew from Dallas to Monterrey and onward to Mexico City.
I’ve been watching fares from DFW to Mexico City for about a year and the fare is as low as I’ve seen it since 2010. I’m finding fares for around $340 round-trip.
I’ve not tracked fares from other cities, so I’m not sure if the Mexico deals are as good elsewhere, but if you’re planning a trip to Mexico this Winter, now may be the time to buy. The details:
