  • Fare feels too good to be true? Don't call the airline!!!!!!
  • Double check that the fare is actually in Business or First as some online search engines or OTA's confuse booking classes on some airlines.
  • Post as many details as possible about the First / Business fare, including fare class, fare basis, one-way / roundtrip, sales channel, sample dates & total price, including taxes.
  • Post the details within the thread itself and not in the post title field as any information typed here cannot be seen by members accessing the thread using mobile devices.
  • Refrain from posting fare requests or engaging in off topic debates such as fare trends, specific aircraft configuration or visa requirements
  • The deeply discounted international fares discussed here are almost always specific to a certain country of origin, so don't ask if it works in reverse (e.g. a SFO-LHR-SFO fare usually won't work LHR-SFO-LHR). Domestic fares more commonly work in reverse.
  • Last, but not least, Don't call the Airline!

If it's a P fare then it's 150% MQM, so it's 8740 mi and 7.1 c/mi.

Keep in mind that Copa is 737 domestic FC seat @:-)

But nice fare considering what coach costs on this route ^

Snagged an A Fare for HNL-ATL-LGA on the A330 for 571.20 on Aug 21.

Fare Basis: SN28AUPQ

Website was being super strange with it though. It kept telling me that I had to call reservations once I got to the page where I would enter my passenger information. In the end, I ended up getting it booked and made sure to snag 1A for the HNL-ATL segment.

doesn't look like an A-fare to me ... fare basis is wrong.

The fare basis isn't incorrect. It's a S-UP fare booking into A.

It's not that it's incorrect. DL took that fare basis off the list afterwards, so you won't even see it in EF.

Lowest fare for the rest of November is $4600 with some as high as $7100+. Great opportunity to try the new J class on AA IMO. Caution that MIA flights do not show the new J seats so I am connecting in JFK and LAX (more miles). DFW and ORD were the other connection choices.
2K business fares to Europe over thanksgiving have started to appear. I saw RSW-LIS/CPH/LHR/OSL for 1900.

(I picked up a W fare and SWUd up on UA)
