  • 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!

Is that from experience when asking AA for credit?

It seems to me Flybe Nordic is to Flybe what American Eagle is to AA. However, with no personal interaction in this regards, I would be really surprised if they dont credit to AA.

Also, TLL seems like a flybe nordic route but shows as operated by flybe on finnair. So technically u should at least get miles for TLL.

Bookable on orbitz for example. Looks also combinable with LX fares.

this fare is constructed as JFK-LHE on PK and then LHE-BKK on TG. Finding an OTA which can ticket PIA flights can be a challenge, especially if you want TG on the same ticket.

TLL is nicest of all of them. When not in flight, I stay mostly in TLL. If someone is taking the fare and shall be in TLL, can PM me. We could meet up for a drink.
