MF: FOC-JFK r/t in Y for $409

Works as one-way for half the price.

FOC-JFK r/t for $409 - https://goo.gl/flights/mMFf
FOC-JFK o/w for $209 - https://goo.gl/flights/JJvO

Xiamen Airlines (MF) Z6MPRUSC/ZOWPRUSC
Quote:
VALID FOR TRAVEL COMMENCING FROM THE JOURNEY ORIGIN ON/ AFTER 15FEB 17 AND ON/BEFORE 30JUN 17.

TICKETS MUST BE ISSUED ON/AFTER 25DEC 16 AND ON/BEFORE 31DEC 16.
Also available from other destinations in Asia:

PEK-JFK r/t for $863 - https://goo.gl/flights/usyf
BKK-JFK r/t for as low as $571 - https://goo.gl/flights/NCNr
TPE-JFK r/t for $742 - https://goo.gl/flights/HbWf
MFM-JFK r/t for $839 - https://goo.gl/flights/RK8J
etc..

Not all dates are available from what I can see. Best is to use ITA to search the cheapest dates then book through an OTA.

Edit: Books in Z, which doesn't seem to earn any miles. Still a great price for this route.

Found this fare while booking QR LAX fare, but since it is Z-fare, it cannot accrue miles to any program.

Good price for the fare though

Stupendously low promo fare. Unfortunately no miles. I will pass.

Unable to book either through the airline website or expedia, fare shows up on google flights though.

I bet that's a misidentified Y fare.

I was able to price it on priceline using bookwithmatrix. Can you try ITA then bookwithmatrix or powertools?

Apparently, you can pay a nominal fee for an upgrade to first when you check-in. If that's the case, I wonder if you get re-booked to F-fare class (ie. F or A) and subsequently earn miles.

After using bookwithmatrix, Priceline shows the flights as economy (at least for my trip).

Unfortunately, this fare is an economy fare, although it's still a pretty good one at that ($13 base fare)



Alerted a mod to move to the correct forum.

That being said, thanks for bringing it to our attention!
