57.07 for ATH-CFU return. To be honest, I did think it was strange, but as Expedia usually (always) displays the correct booking fare, I thought it was a mistake fare. I wrote to Expedia, telling them that they should provide what was advertised, but got no reply....what a surprise!

Interesting. If J is a special fare, why don't they include it on the list of exemptions on the upgrade vouchers (along with U,P,T)? This actually annoyed me more than the OA booking, because the agent effectively missold me the flights in that case. Aegean should be clearer about the rules.

Yeah, I should have done some research here first. I didn't realise the J fare is not eligible. Does that mean no miles either?

Oh well, I shall just have to try and recoup some of my money back (with a few stiff drinks) in the lounge before the flights!
