  • 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!

Phenomenal price. QR are a decent airline, too.

I'm going to look into this, see if I can price stopovers, etc.
VIE is served using A320/321, business class is US 1st style.

I went in thinking (expecting) this too.

However, these seats are much, much better than U.S.-style first. And the attention paid to each passenger in that tiny cabin is phenomenal.

AA: HND-JFK 255,000 JPY RT AI; books in I

A very good deal ex-Japan on AA's daily flight to NYC, probably due to the terrible timing and poor loads. Outbound allowed Monday-Friday and inbound allowed Sunday-Thursday. Must ticket 28 days before departure. No changes permitted; refunds for 50,000 JPY.

Here's another, then! Not great by US or EU standards perhaps but for Japan on a highly-rated *A carrier this is pretty good.

OZ: TYO-SEL-LHR/CDG/IST 286,000-317,000 JPY RT AI (books into U)

Stopovers in SEL permitted both ways. Must travel outbound to Seoul between 13MAY13 and 30SEP13; maximum stay is 1 month. Must ticket at least 14 days prior to travel. No changes allowed; cancellation allowed for 20,000 JPY. This is a SITI fare so you'll need to book with a Japanese travel agent (e.g. Expedia.co.jp). The LHR route is planned to be operated with OZ's staggered business product.

Real fab fare ! Just booked BCN-MEL vv. for my in-laws in January. Great product and new Doha airport (hopefully... ).

Second best to those amazing EK F/C companion fares ex ATH a few years ago.

NRT is becoming one of the routes with overcapacity thus fares are also dropping even ex-JPN.

LOTS of cheap flights out of CAI to many different locations. Fiddle with that departure point and you'll have some fun. I have a one way in C on QR this fall CAI-DOH-LHR-PHL for $1250, and you can get it for about $1125 for the same routing to JFK.

Royal Jordanian business class sale

Looks like Royal Jordanian is having a business class sale.
Many different routes from many airports in Germany (Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, others?) to Asia (Mumbai, Delhi, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, others?)
All under $2000 business class flights (some under $1500). Flights I found were in the beginning of August (7-14).

Have fun playing around with those dates and you might find some even cheaper :-)

Edit: Looking at the post above this, it looks like these fares are available in Germany, The Netherlands & Belgium, maybe it's worth to take a look at some other European countries.
