Aerspace being cheaper than Saver?

I was just searching and was kind of confused to see this. Almost booked it just to see if it went through, though and then refund it.

This is not uncommon

Two scenarios
1. Routes will very low connections to/from the US (try evening flights to Dublin)
2. Routes where the A321NEO is used

Ive made hay with these fares. Might make concierge this year with them.

But.

There are no sign of a single cheap AerSpace fare on any route after October 1st.

I do hope this changes!

There is something 'happening' on Oct 1st. AerSpace may actually become real Business class to align with OW for the JV thing

Thats said take every advantage of the current situation, even with the low fares there are still empty seats on most days to Paris on the 321 so price elasticity and yield still need to be tuned, i.e. lower again to fill the cabin

That'll be a pity. Really enjoyed being up the front. Plus hoovering up the points. All fares seemed locked after October 1st. Maybe therell be some movement soon. Be nice if you could keep it going the way it has been for the last 18 months.

A curtain on A320 to make it feel properly exclusive?

Im half way to renewing Concierge which I did not think Id get higher then Platinum so enjoying these fares while they last . I do think that in lighter periods we will still see this price range though.

I hope so. If I got concierge for the year just to enjoy it that would be great. Platinum would do me from then on. And the occasional cheap AerSpace fare helps a lot!

I think am very likely overthinking it, but I noticed that if I pick an Aerspace seat to LHR or LIS or BCN for example before Oct it says Aerspace seat etc but during/after Oct it says Lie flat seat etc.

I would like to believe they would bother to retrofit a row of lie flat seats but given theyd have to remove row 2 to do so at the very least I really cant see it happening why would they bother just for 4 lie flats? Also where would they get the seats from?

would be nice to have a comfier seat even if they went with nice recliners but its more than likely wishful thinking!

The A321 Neo has a dedicated business class with lie flat seats. They are sometimes used on European routes so thats likely what it is. They dont have anywhere near enough of them to cover all euro routes so I think its probably the specific flights youre looking at

Yeah I considered that, but I just quickly checked LIN and BER and theyre the same. Its obviously just a system glitch because its doubtful that either theyll upgrade the seats or that the a321 will be flying all of these flights/routes

This sort of "anomalous" behaviour appears to be widespread!

I've posted several examples in the A3 forum, and this past weekend, when booking a trip home to Ireland at what is (for me at least) relatively short notice, I found a similar outcome on AF/KL...

Needless to say, I opted for J on the return ;-)
