MA: DUB-BKK $303.60 all-in (Business Class)

The flights are on MALEV (OW alliance).
This would be 6.315 miles one way, 12.630 return,
may earn 1.5 or 2.0 x the miles depending on your FFP.

My question is, does this really work? Could someone who
understands the fare rules check this out and let me and
everyone else know, before we jump on this ?

What confuses me is that it says in the fare rules
"FOR ADULT WITH COMPANION" and
"FARES MAY ONLY BE APPLIED FOR 2 ADULTS
TRAVELLING TOGETHER FOR THE ENTIRE JOURNEY."

But then again it does not say anything about anyone having
to buy a full fare ticket. ITA describes the passenger type as CMA
(instead of CMP, which to my understanding is a companion
fare that usually requires the other traveller to buy a full fare ticket)

Looks like at least aa.com lets you book this for two passengers.
The fare seems to be available at least on the
following dates:

Outward journey
Nov 23
Nov 25
Dec 5
Dec 7

Return
Dec 4
Dec 7
Dec 9

Other dates may be available too.
Tickets must be issued on/before Nov.30, 2007.

For those of you (like me) who thought that you could still earn miles in NW WorldPerks for Malev Hungarian, think again. NWA.com now lists the following rules for Malev:

---
**NOTE** Effective August, 1, 2007, WorldPerks members may earn miles on Malev-operated flights between Amsterdam and Budapest only.
Effective June 15, 2007, miles can only be redeemed for travel on Malev-operated flights between Amsterdam and Budapest.

Does anybody have the full fare rules?

What means "changes anytime permitted for revalidation"?

This shall be fully changeable, right? I could do the same with the Aeroflot ticket to Hong Kong.

This is amazing. I priced it out on AA.com, and it works. I can't use the fare though. Made it all the way to the purchase page for the dates of 11/23 - 12/4. $607.20 a/i for two people. Hooray to whoever can use it, and a gigantic hooray to the OP! Great find!

Can't get this to price up?

On aa.com, booking DUB-BUD-BKK-BUD-DUB for 2 in J using above dates with any carrier. What else do I need to search for this fare?

But what again fare rules? Changeable if same booking class is available? This is my guess. Worked fine with SU ticket. Any insights?

I had the same problem my international travel is 100% planned until the end of February.

If someone has time they could check if the same glitch have affected other MA destinations. I cannot because I actually have to get some work done today.

So does this mean we can make changes? Happy to book at this price if there is a chance we can make a date change tomorrow. I will use this to get to BKK to then hop over for my CMB trip!
