How about a screenshot of the routing entered in ITA. Also would someone please edit post 1 and list flights in correct order ... why would you list in Reverse order. ☹️

Because thats how my BA97 looks... I posted screenshots for this over the past few days in TP thread, shouldn't be too hard to find. I can see some fares are adjusted to allow only 2 transfers on YVR-PTY now though so the search gets harder.

Too complex for my taste ... the concept and timing is nice, though, at the start of the Membership year. Oh, well, back to the drawing board!

"Someone" is a large and curiously inclusive group.

Put me down as a hopeful if this comes to fruition. I have never been to a BA do and I am next door in Colombia.

Had a very frustrating afternoon and evening yesterday looking for this fare without success - not really for the do, I think it'd be difficult to be social during something this intense, but because trying it is almost irresistible.

I was able to find £550 returns to PTY no trouble, and I could find "I" availability on all the legs I needed individually, but if I put them together I got "no fare found" on the YVR to LAX part. Looking at the fare rules, I think I was maxing out the transfers or something like that. I think @nufnuf77 mentions this above, the rules have maybe changed. So eventually I gave up. Learned a lot though.

Sorely tempted but unfortunately won't be able to join this one.
I dare say reports of AA's infamous schedule changes will make interesting reading over the next 10 months 😉

Similar story here. I retrieved the prices fine on Thursday and should have pulled the trigger. Went to do so yesterday and could not get it to price at all. What a shame. Will be sorry to miss the DO but hope all those that managed to book have a great time!

Fare rules have changed on many of these fares - interestingly though they now allow once again routing on LAX-JFK lie flats...

We UK based duffers would greatly appreciate a minimal ITA search criteria definition to get these fares. A wiki with a discussion of ex UK options to YVR would also be pretty helpful, I have wanted to go to Panama for many years so this is more appealing to me than the Phoenix do.
Whether I do or don't make it, I hope you all have great time!
