You can get the same fares, for the same dates on Austrian, SAS, and Brussels Airlines. But you don't get the the elite bonus on any of these carriers. Fares are available from WAS/PHL/CHI/BOS/NYC/Other markets.

For the SkyTeam fliers, Delta and Air France also are also matching the fares.

All of these are really not a bad deal from NYC and in some cases from PHL/WAS.

US: TPA-SMF-TPA 'A' booking $713 a.i. upto 10128EQM on BD

I just stumled upon a fare between TPA and SMF. Works both ways and books into 'A' bucket. This would be one that is comparable to the previous find between LAX and TPA, infact I think this is better than that one.

I hope someone could use this fare.

AA: NYC (JFK/LGA) to most Europe, (ie. MXP, CDG, LHR...)

Don't know anyone have ever mention before.

Book via AA.com, I fare, sample date Nov 25-Nov 28. RT 1450-1600 AI. Thanksgiving weekend holiday/run.

First weekend of 2011 would cost around $300 more.

CO: (11/20-11/27) EWR/IAH -GUM B fare $1515++

It's not great as MR but good for those who are looking for EQM run during Thanksgiving week.

And if you are CO elite and take IAH-LAX-HNL-GUM route, all segments are upgradable with B fare.

At CO.COM regular search.
From: IAH or EWR, To: GUM
Depart: 11/20/2010, Return: 11/27/2010 (You can check +/-3 days option)
Go to Advanced Search and type in B at "Enter specific classes of service"

Edit to add: B fare is not First class, it's Economy class with 150% EQM earning and elite instant upgrade.

Solid fare! GUM is always one of the 1st places I check out for GDPF. Lots of business class "bargains" from places like JFK, IAH & DFW.

Doesn't this earn 3 X RDM on BD?

YES. If you are *S or higher with BD, you will also get another 25% bonus RDM (Total 325%)^

FB / AF / DL : Business Promo 1149e Germany to NYC

Hello All,

I just wanted to share the following deal in case of any interest.


http://www.airfrance.de/DE/de/local/...s/jv-promo.htm


I might be very interested and was wondering if any similar deals from other departure cities or other similar deal ?
I am flying to NYC in september , flexible, 3-4 days in Eco (but not cheapest fares, hence tempter by a promo!)
I need to get several miles now, in order to avoid the year end "status - reach rush" ! ! Thanks for any tips

This is from BMI website.

Continental Airlines:
300% for F
200% for C, D, J
100% for Z, Y, B, M, H, K, Q, U, V, G, W, E, S, T, N, L

So, I don't know where you get the assumption that an upgraded B fare on Continental will earn 300% + 25% bonus for BMI Diamond Club. When CO submits the taken flight info to BD, the original booking class will be sent not the upgraded class of service.
