Well, I just tried www.airfrance.de (as I mentioned a couple of posts up ) with random dates and instantly found the offer, but for a slightly cheaper €1,142 (Strangely, it calls the class on the direct Delta flights "Europe Select"). Class Z.

Not on the FRA route, though, AFAIK. Still the old style BizElite seats.

Also interesting - that page states that German-residing Flying Blue members will receive double the normal miles in Business Class. This promo also applies to Delta's other direct routes from Germany - namely Berlin-JFK and Düsseldorf-Atlanta - when booked on airfrance.de using the relevant AF codeshare number, and for flights from today up til 31.03.2011.

No children´s discount on those Delta flights 8I understand, they get their own seat) but no discount for infants either (I don´t quite understand as they don´t get a seat).

Yes indeed - it is systematically the old style Business Elite (i've done 4 in the past 2 months!), not the most comfortable but nice crew and service. Flight is often late both ways so beware if you use positioning tickets, and it systematically arrives at remote stands at JFK and often at FRA which can add yet a bit of transit time.

IAD-LHR Z $1952 all-in

I've been watching the UA IAD-LHR Z fares in November for a while and they've been running about $3300... pulled the trigger this morning when a six-day trip over Thanksgiving dropped to $1952 all-in on the 767 flights.

Many other origins/destinations

Looks to be a Thanksgiving week "Z" sale -- most UK & German destinations are included from most US origins, on UA, CO, US, LH

e.g.

IAD-FRA/BER/DUS/STT/MUC ~$1700; from ORD/MIA/ATL/IND etc. ~$1750, from SEA/SFO/LAX/SLC/LAS etc. ~$2100-$2200

Dates are very limited. From the fare rules:

OUTBOUND -
PERMITTED 21NOV 10 THROUGH 27NOV 10 FOR EACH
TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.
INBOUND -
PERMITTED 25NOV 10 THROUGH 01DEC 10 FOR EACH
TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.

TRAVEL IS NOT PERMITTED ON 29NOV 09 AND 30NOV 09.

TRAVEL FROM LAST STOPOVER MUST COMMENCE NO EARLIER THAN 3
DAYS AFTER DEPARTURE FROM FARE ORIGIN.
On UA & LH at least, there's no class-of-service [EDITED - see posts below] bonus (unclear whether the same is true for CO, US, & AC - I don't see it, but it could be buried):
Z CLASS FARES ACCRUES BASE MILES AND ELITE
STATUE BONUS MILES BUT ARE NOT ELLIGIBLE FOR
CABIN/CLASS OF SERVICE BONUS MILES.
Yes, it does say "Elite Statue Bonus Miles". Hmm.

Only the US fare appears to permit stopovers.

Don't see anything less than 2600 USD. Dates?

Ah, ok. I see them now.

Wife would kill me if I do this over Thanksgiving.
