Last edit by: Sykes
  • 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!

Indeed. Fly between 15/11 and 31/1 (excluding Xmas) and the double Avios promo from BA when flying QR should earn your HHA in the region of 80k (assuming no status uplift)... Quite a gift.

Some interesting fares out of BKK and CGK to Europe over Spring Break. Looks like they book into D class. However, I can't find anything in fare rules about miles earned. Would miles be earned on both tickets? If credited to AA?

Check with AA. I know that BA give Avios for all business class fares on QR.

AA would be even better, as they still give their 100% status bonus for flights taken on QR, whereas BA do not.

Flew CAI to KUL yesterday on TK. GREAT flights. Food fantastic. Old C seats, but worth every penny.

Yeah, experienced the same on a booking to LAX I just made. They advertise a 15% combo savings on flight+car packages.

Anyone want to do the YEG-TGU Run on a weekend with me on UA in Biz for $777? Either a 1hr.1 minute turnaround in TGU or can do an overnight in IAH/ORD/DCA to make it at least something.. I'm a bit weary about the 1hr turnaround in TGU, reading through the thread it says it can be very close. Im worried about suspicion at immigration even if I am doing SDT or staying just one night.

Booked with a friend back to back weekends end of January/February. Status in a few runs all in C!

Going to be interesting as we are on the same day turnaround. Got a few tips from Fters who took this route and did SDT. Also, tripped out after realizing this is the 2nd most dangerous airport in the world. Any experiences to share?!! LOL

For the sake of keeping this thread on topic please direct responses on specific airports such as TGU to the regional FT For a which in this case the Central America forum.

I just discovered something interesting. I decided to fly to Sao Paulo to see friends and keep my Executive Platinum status on American. I wanted to fly from LAX to DFW to GRU in order to get the newest plane to Sao Paulo. The lowest business class fare shown was $5081. Then I went to American Airlines vacations. For $3750 I got the same flights plus four nights at the Intercontinental Hotel. I was assured that the flights would count towards elite status and that I would get the class of service bonus. I'm not sure whether this works for other destinations or it was a fluke.
