AF TUN-CDG-LHR economy booked in F class

Hi there,

Hope I'm in the right place. I fly AF quite a bit and get those travels credited on Delta.

I booked a return economy trip recently NCE-CDG-TUN-CDG-LHR and the first part to Tunis was booked in H while the second part, TUN-CDG-LHR, was booked in F.

I didn't even notice this before the miles credited on my Delta Skymiles account as I ended up with the bonuses you get when flying La Premičre and got curious.

Anyone can explain? Have AF started to use F booking class on some markets in Economy?

Thank you!

F is indeed a booking fare in Eco in medium haul with AF for something like 2 years IIRC.

Wow, ok, didn't know that, thanks!

Since I posted I checked DL's earning table for AF flights and indeed F is mentioned as Economy for intra Europe and domestic flights.

TUN might just be a loophole then as still medium haul but not in Europe. 300% miles though

Northern Africa/Israel pretty much falls within the same category as Europe for AF, if you plan on crediting the flight to DL, please report back if it actually posts as 300% or 100%.

Oh this wasn’t an hypothetical question. It happened already:



i hadn’t even notice the F fare class before I saw this strange credit and checked my ticket
