Arrow Premium Fare Deals | 2018 edition

This thread is a continuation of the ever popular Premium Fare Deals (J and F) - 2017 edition thread.

So, once again, please post here all those fares that earn Tier Points in the BAEC programme and that originate in Europe (or in rare occasions elsewhere). Please try and limit side discussions to a minimum, as this thread seems to be a valuable resource for people looking for a good deal and we want to keep them easy to find.

Also a gentle reminder that there is a BA sales thread and a very, very good Tier Point Run thread where you can discuss those specific topics.

There is also a WT/WTP deals thread around, if you find a great deal in that category.

Quick reminder of the ideas:
  • If you add a fare, please also add a link to (or the name of) the site where you can book it to make it easier for others to book the fare. You can use Google flight search but it helps if you have checked the actual booking link.
  • Fares should not be part of a well published sale. For that use When is the next BA sale?
  • If a fare is a complex itinerary, optimising TPs and under GBP 2,50 per TP, please post it in the BA Tier Point Runs | 2018 master thread
  • Please focus on fares ex-UK or ex-EU
  • As this thread is meant for good deals that provide TPs on BAEC, please feel free to add exEU or exUK fares on BA, QR, IB, CX, AA or other OW partners to popular destinations.
  • Please post possible mistake fares / obscure routings in the MR forum under Premium Fare Deals and provide a link in a post in this thread.
  • If you found the fare elsewhere (on FT or a blog), please credit the original source in your post in the thread.
  • Thank you for your contribution(s) !

FIRST CLASS - RTM/AMS/BRU to West Coast (SFO, SAN, YVR, SEA) starting at 2330...(Expired 1st Feb)

For promos to the US (often, but TP heavy routes in general) it is always a good idea to look at BA Tier Point Runs 2017 master thread. Current sales are often in the Wiki there.

Please use WT and WTP (family holiday) fare deals for WT or WTP deals.

Here is a link to the original Premium Fare Deals thread.

Today only, as bhbloke pointed out in 2017 thread, RJ has an up to 40% off sale. Travel Feb/March only.

Example: LHR-AMM-BKK-KUL/HKG = 1,197 and 640TP, all on 787 in business cabin.

Don't sleep. https://booking.rj.com

this will likely be 560 TPs, as BKK is a technical stop.

For long transit in AMM, is there any nap rooms in the J lounge or at air side inside the airport?

Although this was in 2013, I was pleasantly surprised to find that at the connection desk in AMM (I was doing CAI-AMM-DEL on RJ in J) that they had a hotel room arranged for my 10 hour connection, meals and car there and back. I had just assumed I was going to have to find a long sofa in the lounge somewhere and try and rest!

So I'm getting there with this booking system but could anyone help with the fare rules? Am I reading them right that cancellation would be a full refund minus a 50 fee and fuel surcharge?

For the benefit of people looking at this, it ends today Jordan time, 2200 GMT.
Looking at ~01FEB-10FEB, it was cheaper to go to HKG and back than just AMM!I had a look at Cairo and 815 with a nine-hour layover did not appeal.

It is doing that to me also, on both FF and Chrome.

Please try copying https://www.rj.com/en/plan-and-book/...ok-your-ticket, kill your browser window/tab, and start again/paste (it should remember your dates). It seems to happen sporadically.

Thanks! I've managed to get out of the brown colour booking interface and into the white one with the RJ logo on the top left and it's working a lot better. Just need to work out the refund terms now!

Yeah, I had the same thing. It was only useful once the blue/white interface loaded! Only managed to get there by fiddling with dates/destination.

Didn't realise that, good to know!

EDIT: Having looked again, yes, it's a fuelling stop for the KUL and HKG routes, so it'll be 2x 140TP e/w, 560TP total.

Not sure if all are tech stops on those longer-distance eastern destinations (KUL, HKG)?
I think KUL is a tech stop as flight number is the same and there is a little refueling symbol on the booking screen.
