KL/DL: BOS(JFK)-LHR-AMS-YUL(YYZ) From $271 a/i 3.94cpm (Thanksgiving in Europe?)

Just booked one of these for a bit more BOS-AMS-YUL for $357 ai. My dates were Tuesday 22 Nov outbound Sunday 27 Return to YUL.

The cheapest deal is BOS-LHR-AMS-YUL for $271 at Thanksgiving and the weekend before, so maybe there's good availability throughout. Didn't want to bother with the complicated flight so I just went with the nonstop flight.

Great fare on par with the WAW flights earlier, only this time you get to choose decent airports to fly into!

Mine booked into N which gets 100% through DL looks to be about 6800 total miles.

EDIT: Forgot to mention...did a search on Kayak to bring them up.

Found it on KL.COM. Available well outside of T-giving. Looks like another OJ FD! Haha! Book them up the wazoo and give it to DL!

I have found it valid through April so far. Sample: 5 Apr JFK-LHR, 19 Apr AMS-YUL $386.27 a.i.

What is the best way to easily find availability ane pricing on this? I see $340s fares into March by searching specific days on Kayak, but obviously that's not terribly efficient.

AWK. What have I done? For a moment there I had it done to under $500 all-in but it just jumped on me to $941. I've got something screwed up. If anyone wants to give a hint to the hapless, you can PM me. I won't publish any information without your permission and I never call the airline.

Easiest for me is just to pick some randoms that work for you....type in From: YUL, BOS, NYC To: AMS, BRU, LHR, etc... on kayak and all of the links that come up seem to be working fine

West coast too

Am getting approx $540 SEA-AMS-YVR (KL*/DL on outbound, KL on the return) for west coasters - looks about the same from LAX also.

Yep, ok, seems to work for basically any airport KL flies to....if you've got a close Canadian airport nearby you are extremely lucky. BUF-AMS-YYZ for $356, BUF-BCN-YYZ for $442....

and...BUF-JNB-YYZ for $715....check other destinations out! DXB $613...

Seems to require a Saturday night stay, anyone else getting similar results? When I redo it without a Saturday night stay, it rockets up to four figures. Not an issue, just an observation for anyone else attempting this.

Probably what I was doing wrong. I see it now. MSY-DTW-LHR, AMS-YUL $332 all in. November dates. Don't know how much detail we're supposed to be posting on these...any MSY travelers can PM me. Might well book this one in a few minutes. Works for CDG too.

Thanks for sharing! Does KL have any 24 hour cancellation guarantees or similar?

Showing some love for smaller midwest origins as well, mid-$300s ex-DAY, CVG, CMH...I'd bet there are others

They say you can take an option on a fare for 3 days, whatever that means. I don't want to take an option, I want to buy it, but I'm running into error codes and having trouble actually being allowed to book.

out of SFO on the 22nd and ending in YUL is about $450 for me. $487 if going to YVR but then can't seem to get back to SFO or SEA that Sunday after Thanksgiving without it tripling in price.
