  • 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!

Just booked for July travel. Requires 14 days advance purchase. Outbound via DFW and return via JFK. Very good deal with lots of EQP.

Edit: both international segments upgraded to F using eVIP certs. Sweet!

YVR-NRT is a 767 with recliners with 46" pitch in J, though NRT-SIN is a 787. JAL's new 767 flat product doesn't go into service until December.

Sounds very reasonable. Too bad I can't use it. I'm based in ORD and go to SIN at least 2 times a year for extended period of time.

Stop-over in Saudi Arabia is difficult to take advantage of because of visa problem.

AA Atl-Lax $385 F o/w

Seems like a decent fare. Works from either direction. If you want RT, you need to book two one-ways to get the lowest fare.
