  • 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!

Not sure if they've been posted, but there are tons of NYC-SA deals for July/August in C/F. I'm seeing NYC-GIG for $1700, NYC to EZE or MVD for $2200, NYC-BOG $1000.

Cannot see them for gig, best I pull up is 2282 and that's COPA, can you give an example?
Thanks

What airline(s)???

DFW-BOG in September for $754 AI on DL, if anyone's interested. Sample date: 12-17Sep. Some West Coast origins also available for around $1025 RT (I saw PDX and SMF).

PDX had a JFK connection so that certainly helps mileage vs. ATL.

SEA-ORD-PVG-HKG in C $1510.00 ai (not a Great Mileage Earner)

TOTAL AMOUNT 1510.20USD
ADT TAX INCLUDED
1 AA 1970 P 15OCT SEA ORD 545A 1140A TU 738 IA6M5US4 E*
2 HU 498 I 15OCT ORD PEK 325P 705P+ TU 340 IA6M5US4 E*
3 MU 5164 Y 18OCT PEK HGH 850A 1110A FR 321 IA6M5US4 E
4 MU 595 I 18OCT HGH HKG 200P 400P FR 320 ILAP28BX E

I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but its a pretty good deal for business class ow C1-C3. All business class except segment PEK-HGH.
This fare can go pretty much anywhere in C3se. Its about $140.00 more to places like RGN if someone wanted to position in C
I mistyped the header "PVG" it should be "PEK"....

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!
this fare works to EZE as well, you can go to GRU and return from EZE or viceversa.

Its still available for the dates on my post and many more in Oct/Nov. I didn't check Sep. If you can't get it from an OTA us a real travel agent with a GDS. There is plenty of availability at the price. The trick is that it's cheaper using this route than from either SEA or ORD directly. Its a fare glitch.

I can't find any OTA that has this fare. Nor does it work on Matrix.
