TPE-BKK

KLM has RT Z fares TPE-BKK or vis versa for US$637 all in. Not much of a MR but just US$261 more than lowest coach.

Also, TPE-LAX on DL Business First for US$2560 to $2800 all in.

I thought TPE was supposed to have some great fares.

Does someone else understand this joke?
I gave the weblink to the offer, which I would like everyone else posting here to give as well. That REALLY is not enough?? =)
Ok, here is another link so you don't have to make an extra mouseclick =)

edit: Oh, apparently this deal was old news... sorry about that :/ I stopped subscribing to this thread due to too much BS so I missed this deal on previous page.

Total was $950ish all-in. The flights credited at 300% BMI (which is no longer the case for US 'A' Fares).

In any event, this appears to be the going rate on the west coast-SJU route. As long as at least one of the following airlines to continues to offer it, I believe the other ones will offer it as well: US, UA and DL.
Whose ticket stock come from? If it's US, what was showing under BMI acct for UA operating segments? as US codeshare or UA flight number?

The best I can come with is 3 connections for July/Aug, anything more than that on ITA will increase fare.

What tool did you use for this routing?

You can get this routing for 499ai SAN-SFO-LAX-ORD-IAD-STT-SJU

I've also seen SAN-SFO-LAX-DEN-EWR-PHL-SJU but that ends up with a lower total mileage...

Edit: You're right! However, after recalculating, it doesn't increase the mileage. The best routing that I can come up with is still SAN-SFO-LAX-BOS-PHL-SJU or SAN-SFO-LAX-ORD-BOS-PHL-SJU for an extra segment. Both some out at ~8200 EQM crediting to UA or ~8500 EQM crediting to CO.

ITA. It definitely took some playing with to get it to work out (things like forced connection points, adding UA+, etc). But once it did I was able to price it out via .bomb using multicity.

If you couldn't be bothered to go to lufthansa.de, then I'm sure you also weren't bothered to read the full details which were given on the previous page (see post 446 onwards).

Got the BKK-GRU ticketed with TK for me and my wife for end of August! We'd been hoping to visit Brazil (especially Rio - should be a easy flight to get from GRU). Great find! Unlike recent AC deal to S.A, I have e-ticket in hand (my email) and all references are in place! Awesome. I may buy another one for January.

I only needed the one way, which is how I found the fare at first so haven't tried a round trip. But eticket in hand for early July.

You can't, if you try it will balloon the fare up to around 175-250K THB...

I tried one way GRU-BKK and the fare was over 6K Brazilian Real...
