  • 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!

Any sample dates and class of service?

BOS to ICN on AA in First, booking at ~$3600. Only ~$500 more than the same ticket in J.

Availability starts in late November, and appears to run through schedule end - showing up as late as May.

I would assume it's available from other cities as well, but have not yet confirmed. Quick glance suggests ~$3,200 from LGA, not sure what else there is.

MIL -> LAS in F on BA

Not the best fare you'll have seen but not bad on BA metal

3500€ (which becomes 3300€ with shareholder discount if you've got it) MIL -> LAS with BA in F

With the additional 30.000 AVIOS offer not a bad fare with 500 tier points and less than 1000€ more than J

YVR even cheaper 3370€ that becomes 3150€ with shareholder discount

MIA totals 3266€ that would = less than 3000€ with s/holder discount. Now thats just over 2500 in F....

It's a good fare, but it is Pacific routing only and requires AA flight operated by AA. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think AA has any new F on their transpacs yet, so you wont be in a particularly stellar F. Too bad it doesn't allow codeshare metal...

Also, I see lots of cities, SEA is $2739++ Havent looked at MPM and what it would let you do for routings, but assume SEA-LAX-PVG/NRT-ICN is the most straightforward.

Tough to use except for other than a short trip to the US. Has a max 30 day return requirement, so you can't use outbound to return from Asia and return to start a new trip months later. Fare basis is IAP1MN

This fare has been around a while and has been mentioned in this thread before.

What is nice is it allows 1 stopover in HKG, but must return to NRT within 30-days.

I think the shareholder discount was excluded from the 30K promotion....

In your inbox, if you've been targetted by BA. It appears that those who haven't received the offer cannot enrol.
