Works also great with Zagreb which would give you Croatia Airlines operated Business Class flight, something more exotic to try.
Also works with Eurostar from Antwerp, which is particularly interesting in case you live in Western part of German and also parts of France or Benelux in general as more easy to get to.
It is gone, but even yesterday I didn't see routes with Croatia Airlines for my dates, only KL/AF.

I got cancelled. One way from Montreal -> Lille for 1,500 miles + fees.

No formal notification. The app shows a red exclamation point and says "Cancelled". The website shows my city pairing's text struck through like this.

My 13.5k bookings are still alive (for now).

If they do cancel mine, I'd be happy with a 40k compensation per direction cancelled.

Yeah no communication here either, but the booking looks different than before. I can still see it but its crossed out in sections.

Ours show cancelled in the app, but when I called Flying Blue they said there was an internal meeting about it this week and they were going to decide what to do with all the mistake fare bookings and then theyd communicate with everyone. The agent I talked to said theres a chance they still honor them, but Im not too hopeful.

Status plays no role when they cancel mistake fare bookings. I mean status pax are not more protected than non-status ones.
