  • 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!

These have been regulars in the recent premium BA sales. Fantastic price, particularly if you can couple it with one of the current 50% hotel sales in the Caribbean.

Also similar fares from PHX, allows you to route PHX-SFO(LAX)-EWR-SJO. I got it for ~1040 all in.

Is this a special fare? I was able to book it for most days this year and I snagged a trip for Jan 2014.

This is an first/business fare sale to SJO that comes around often. Can often be found in the $700-$800 range on AA.

CX USA-HKG Business Class save 20%.

http://us.cathaypacific.com/offers/b...asp?src=banner

Book by 5/31, Travel June 1 to Aug 31. Sample price $4,863.

I just wish this was valid for September travel!! I usually pay $7,000 for this routing, so I think this is a good deal.

ANA First for $3,800...and FYI you can book it from BOS, through ORD (in the First Square suites), for ~$4,100. Also, you can do BOS-NRT | ICN-BOS in First for ~$4,300.

CX Business, for ~$4,800, and very restricted.

This comparison is why my heart cries to be Oneworld-bound.

Yup... Secret route. NH frequently subs in an A380 on the ORD-BOS segment. Probably shouldn't mention here...

In all seriousness, I don't think A5RoadDogg was implying ICN-ORD-BOS, 2 segments, all on ANA metal. Most likely, ICN-(nh/oz)-NRT-(nh)-ORD-(ua)-BOS.

As much as I'd love to see the big bird come to beantown, ps9a has it correct, it's BOS-ORD-NRT | ICN-NRT-ORD-BOS, with UA metal covering the BOS-ORD legs.
