Good Deal Premium Fares 2013

Last edit by: Sykes
  • 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!

Type in your dates, departure and arrival airport, select business class, and use the option "Narrow the search to my preferred airlines". Select Air Canada and Turkish Airlines as your preferred airlines.
yep, Orbitz works well. Trick can be to specify arilines and use coach, then select segments founds on ITA and once clicking through Orbitz will reprice to Business.

No it is available from these gateways as well for around $1700 next Apr. on ITA and ua.bomb. Have a look as it's a pretty good deal.

Would that be in regular F or Suite F?

It'd be great if it's on A380 with shower and social bar. Not familiar with this route.

DME and BKK both get 388s direct from DXB, but they also get 773s and 77Ws on rotation, so it would be a case of picking the right flight combinations...


KBP seems to be codeshares on FZ and PS, operated by 738s between KBP and DXB... eww :/

regarding exchange rates, JPY is weak - so you can get these fares from 1450EUR. Thank you for this find.

I booked all of the 4 legs (for 2014, out of Kiev) to 777, but A380 might be possible on certain days at least for the Dubai-BKK leg.

Interesting; are these base fares or all-in?

A shame these fares are just for a two week period... And not the best time either.

Thanks!
No Idea........ I am awaiting cfischer to tell us...... he is the one saying there is a $1350 fare Im trying to find it.

oops he has posted above..... However i am going to assume its a fuel dump because hes not giving detailed information.

I'd like a little clarity on the $1350 BOS fare as well please. I'm only able to find fares in the $1750 - $1900 range. That's not bad for a Z fare across the pond, but it's not $1350!

They are all-in, according to the email I received. This sale is likely to fill in the gap before Obon (a peak travel period in mid August) when premium travel is a bit slack.
