ETA:

- the fonts are overlappng and different.
- EK have not used this e-ticket design in many years
- Previous reports of fake tickets have looked the same
- It's an expensive ticket (maybe not, checking flight prices they are >15k one-way, 22k return, but even return the one-way base fare is $10k, so if the return was in Y total cost would still exceed $8k)
- The black text showing flight details appears to be in bullet points from Word, as if the fake ticket image was put in the document as a background image, and a faded box drawn over the previous details
- It's pixelated and shows JPEG compression artefacts
- There is a shorter connection with F available with EK512
- It has a ticket number, which if not yet sold/issued it should not have
- The taxes on this route are $866 for a one-way, the return is similar, and this includes over $800 of carrier-imposed surcharge, i.e. not tax but fees (total price implies only tax is excluded)
- A current one-way for 20 Feb on those flights is >$15,000
- There is no fare basis or fare construction
- It doesn't indicate the fare brand (Saver, Flex, Flex Plus) or the segment status (Waitlisted, Cancelled, Confirmed, Open, etc)
- The EK ticketing office in Los Angles is in El Segundo, not the address shown there, which is the airport address, the airport address on the EK website is however noted as Tom Bradley International, not a street number and name
