Fare feels too good to be true? Don't call the airline!!!!!!
Double check that the fare is actually in Business or First as some online search engines or OTA's confuse booking classes on some airlines.
Post as many details as possible about the First / Business fare, including fare class, fare basis, one-way / roundtrip, sales channel, sample dates & total price, including taxes.
Post the details within the thread itself and not in the post title field as any information typed here cannot be seen by members accessing the thread using mobile devices.
Refrain from posting fare requests or engaging in off topic debates such as fare trends, specific aircraft configuration or visa requirements
The deeply discounted international fares discussed here are almost always specific to a certain country of origin, so don't ask if it works in reverse (e.g. a SFO-LHR-SFO fare usually won't work LHR-SFO-LHR). Domestic fares more commonly work in reverse.

It seems a few reminders for posting in this thread are required:
-please provide as much details as possible regarding your fare find, including total roundtrip including tax, any applicable dates or specific seasonality and fare class
-please include the information in the body of the post and not the post title which isn't visible to members reading the thread on mobile devices
-please limit the commentary & conversation to follow-up questions only, not how good or bad the specific airline's F or J class may or may not be, destination discussion or further off topic issues better covered elsewhere on FT
-please use the 'report bad post' function to bring moderator attention to posts you may feel don't conform rather than posting regarding the merit of the post in question
This thread works best when we all help our fellow posters with just the facts. You help in keeping this thread focused is appreciated.
Edited to add this thread really isn't the right place to have a discussion about how it's formatted or structured and for those wanting to carry on that topic I'd kindly ask you to bring those opinions up in this TB thread.
On Thursdays, the service runs with "new" 2-class 763. I haven't been able to find a picture of the new interior, if anybody has info, please post.
On Sundays, the service runs with old 3-class 763. The old product is F/C/Y. Picture of F looking into C here (from 2008): http://www.airliners.net/photo/1485424/ Only thing which isn't clear is if it has remained the same. According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uzbekistan_Airways), they have two configs on 767 - F5/C40(!)/Y, and C18/Y. In the A-net picture, it's F10/C18 (visible, possibly more). It's very likely that they just removed one row of F, making it one row of 2-1-2 F.
HY has fifth-freedom rights on JFK-RIX and v.v., so if you're planning on a Latvian holiday, this could be a very interesting flight option.
HY flights are visible on ITA.
Round-trip in C is 2400 USD.
Round-trip in F is 3100 USD.
Both are still cheaper than the cheapest first-world country airline in J.

Very subjective--- some of us on this thread aren't mileage runners or looking to minimize CPM (ie, connecting multiple times on our way across the country). Personally, a domestic Premium fare that's significantly cheaper than normal is interesting to me.
