Eurowings through OTA - Smart Fare

Hey folks,

Looking for a couple flights at the end of the Summer.

Booking a basic return fare on Eurowings = 220
Booking a basic return fare on OTA = 173

Obviously i'd like to use the OTA's (Last Minute / OPODO) but I want to get Smart fares.

So I have two questions:
1. Can I buy Smart fares through an OTA?
2. Can I upgrade to a smart fare after purchasing?

Thanks!

Please do not book anything at the moment.
It is unclear whether Eurowings will operate that flight at all.
If Eurowings cancels the flight, you only receive a worthless voucher.

If it's a longhaul, I would reccommend you to wait with booking. EW is rumoured to stop flying longhaul.

When you do book, make certain that you only book with the carrier or through a reputable bricks & mortar TA where you personally know the TA with whom you deal and that person comes recommended by others you know and trust. If and when things do not work out, if you are stuck with a so-called OTA, you will regret any minimal savings.
