Super Ex Italy BA J sale. Worldwide (especially gd on N America)

Read the small print - 7 day min on USA / CANADA fares

But 1303€ to NYC in J and 1205€ to YUL really are very very cheap

1574€ to CPT also a steal

How creative can we be with the fare? E.g. is it possible to do IT-LON LCY-JFK JFK-SEA on AA code?

I don't think it's just ex-IT, it seems to be ex-EU, or at least ex-NL, which is the only other country site I've checked.

<cough> IM5EUS got a mention here on Saturday... </cough>

EDIT: IL28SALE looks particular good ex-Italy, base fare gbp732 FCO-NYC, plus taxes fees charges. ex-AMS that fare is gbp1004 plus taxes fees charges...

Few deals out of Dublin also. I booked J to NYC in July for 967 euro. Only drawback was return is on a 757, but viewed it as getting J benefits and TP for a WT+ price.

Kudos to you for reporting, either way

"Here" was in this thread.

last few years there have been decent ex-EU sales right about now.

2 years ago I got DUS-LHR-LAS-JFK-LCY-(LHR-DUS) - 600 TPs for 1200 (booked on AA.com). Last year the same routing was 1500 ex-BRU.

In this sale you can do BRU-LAS in J for 1280 which is very good. Haven't checked the TP run routing above, but I expect it will still work. The minimum 7 day rule, which hasn't applied in previous years, is rather annoying though - I usually do 5 nights.

I saw these DUB over the weekend and was very tempted. As you saw, the 757s are a bit of a drag, but they are fast buggers. For just over £1,000 you get to go on a BA Jumbo.

Would've done the all-BA route but schedule worked out much better for me on the AA route. Plus I clear immigration in Dublin and then am done once I land back in London.

Milan to Boston via LHR in November coming in at around 1355 in CW for me.
Amsterdam to Boston for the same period was close to 1900.
