none of the 200k quotes above seem to include the AF leg....
For those that didn't bother to check, the OP's itinerary was:
PHL-ATL-FCO-CDG-PHL

Also, when logged in as PM, I see:
200k, 245k and 275k options in J. The 200k routings involve a coach segment, PHL-JFK.

Sure. Just saying that the 200k routing was not the same as the OP's search. Also noticed that the OP's search was arriving on 7/8 (and not 7/7) as you would expect for a 7/6 departure.
