Very tempted by the OSL-CPT deals for next Winter, but I'm planning just a bit too far in advance. I'm looking at 5-6 weeks in January and early February. I guess I'll just have to hope it continues!

Perhaps then also worth pointing out that citizens of many nations, including nearly all of Europe, can now get a free e-visa for St. Petersburg (Leningrad region). UK is the most notable exception in Europe, so no dice for many on this forum.

Hello, first time sharing a fare so hope this is of use to someone.

I note that the ILX9T1S4 fare mentioned in some blogs as good from London to Montreal is also good for Nashville -- 1265 return and can get connections on both way for extra TPs if you want.

Very restricted dates, and must be booked soon (see below), haven't been able to find it working to any other cities.

American (AA) ILX9T1S4 LON to BNA

MXP-MIA-LHR-LIN - £1,358 in J booked through American Airlines website. Not sure of the precise terms but you needed to book minimum 14 days in advance, think you can add in connections for more TP. Direct flights from LHR are pricing up at £5,500 for the weekend I booked (28 Feb - 3 Mar).

Not the most amazing price I’ve ever seen but DUB-LHR-JNB in J over Christmas & New Year for around €2100. I know there’s been cheaper ex AMS but a solid price for that time of the year for BA if anyone’s interested

There's an ex-CDG J fare to MIA that can be had from c€1520 (approx £1290). Departure dates around the end of June/start of July
​​​​and return before the 15th. There's been better in the past but looks a decent fare. Flexibility looks limited as well.

Maybe worth looking further into CDG for the US as JFK is available for c€1320 (c£1120) around the same time. Better flexibility on this one.

As I mentioned in the TP thread and in the Premium fares sub-forum, the CDG fares seem to apply to most US destinations, with only a 14 day Apex requirement and a Sat night stay. Very unusually there are no seasonal restrictions whatsoever. £1500 in I class to the US for the entire next 355 days is a good deal. There is also a (seemingly separate) fare sale in business to other longhaul destinations ex-CDG (ex EZE, CPT)

It seems to have disappeared for now: an itinerary I looked at yesterday has gone up from £1,450 to over £3,000.

However, this also happened last week, and a few days later the fare dropped again. All you can do is check back regularly.

You can track the price on google flights, Skyscanner etc. You’ll get an email / notification if the price falls (or rises).

Where did you want to go? There are still some cheap fares to be had from MXP to MIA and EZE.
