Fares difference AF/MU on AF website




Hi
I was looking for tickets from CDG to PVG for next summer and I was wondering why AF only offers flexible tickets on MU flights. MU does offer promotional tickets on their own website ...

Thanks

I guess that AF only shares Flexible fares on their own flights to MU as well.
The AF website tends to favor the AF flights at all costs, sometimes hiding even KLM flights. You might get cheaper fares on the klm website instead.

Yes, I will check this.

In June, MU and AF fares are similar on the same route

AF may have a small number of seats available in the lower fare class on the MU-operated flight so that, when they are gone, you are left with expensive fares, even though MU themselves still have availability in lower fare classes.

try to search from KL site , usually their prices match MU prices ,

if you buy directly from MU but be careful cause a bunch of MU booking classes dont earn miles/xp in flying blue
