As already pointed out in post 4484 I believe.

I suspect the vast majority of deals involving OW airlines on that thread would qualify as TP runs anyway so it can be a good source especially for those who aren't starting in the UK/EU.

I can't see them cancelling a ticket once it's issued either. Over and above legal arrangements (which you understand better), there's also the reputational side. wasn't there an Alitalia fare a few years ago they tried to cancel but ended up honouring after social media backlash etc?

I'm very happy to clarify my post.

I was merely agreeing that, as a run, it wasn't in the same category as others highlighted on here and is really more of an opportunity to sample a premium cabin not normally available at those fares. There will inevitably be overlaps between the 2 threads and I wasn't saying it shouldn't feature here. Nevertheless, I do still think it's more a good fare than a run deal.

If people want to include deals of this type on this thread I have no problem whatsoever with that.
I didn't think you were suggesting I had sinned. Just felt like saying that a) these things overlap and sometimes my FOMO (fear of missing out) means I have to check here, in the Sale and in the Premium Fare thread and b) that I think we here, in our little (or not so little thread) are the true community (friendly, supportive, allowing doctors and non doctors, babies in F, with or without napkins and all that stuff ).

I have an opportunity to be in state side in a couple of weeks and wondered if there are any tier point run opportunities out of IAH?

Could depart from Thursday 30th or Friday 31st before returning to UK.

Thanks

Is it considered poor form to get a cheapo Norwegian flight to connect off an ex-CPH summer special?

ENTP - not poor form at all - just work to your budget!

I'm guessing your FT username is Myers-Brigg related

Anyone help me out with a trip in June, im only finding really expensive prices?

CPH-HEL-LHR/LCY-JFK-LAX-HNL-LAX(if needed)to IAD then a380-LHR-HEL-CPH

If routing is needed differently i.e to make it worthwhile HNL-PHX-IAD etc im happy.

Hoping to upgrade the A380 sector to F

exCPH is 1 July 2015 to end of August. If you are looking at June departures you won't get the low fare.

Specify CPH as origin and HNL as destination, then use a routing code like this one (for outbound leg):

ay hel ay,ba lon ba1-4 jfk aa,us phx aa,us hnl

and similarly for the way back.

Oops, you don't need this last 'hnl'. And yeah, I think that if you go via LAX, you'll be booked into business instead of first, so will miss out on the TPs.

Quick question, if you specify ba1-4 in the routing code will it bring up the codeshares for that route? Sometimes the codeshares are cheaper although you may not earn as many avios. I have seen quite a few IB codeshares which seem to be a bit cheaper on TATLs recently. I am guessing you just need to list the codeshares in as well so that itamatrix brings them up?

I guess you need to specify both codeshare airline and its flight number (for example, ib4685) to force the LCY-JFK flight into the itinerary.

Do codeshares on these flights have the same "first's TPs for business" deal as BA does?

Yes, same 210 TPs for the codeshares.

Thanks, I only ask because I do my searches slight differently and don't tend to specify the flight numbers, but it is good to know different ways to do it.
