1. looks like LAX-GOT has the same error
2. Booked via Priceline, but all the major OTAs will book into K. Priceline just had the itinerary I wanted
3. I used a SWU, but I could also have used miles.

This is only for AF fares, so it means that your over-water carrier must be AF.

Did this book all into K, or was it only the SFO-JFK segment that was K?

Was it at the $500 price level? I can force a flight through AF, but the price goes up to $700...

This was at the $578 price level. Try booking via Priceline. The trick is to get the domestic segments to be DL coded

also only domestic Delta books into K

I booked SFO-ATL-CDG-GOT-AMS-MSP-SFO for $567.80...Oct. 3-7. I'm waitlisted with my GUC for the AMS-MSP-SFO return. Wish me luck.

I'm excited to see all the PM's from folks making their way out here!

The resource above is fantastic.

My recommendation is the Clarion Post for hotel. BRAND NEW located at central station.
If you don't have a budget, then Hotel Avalon.

Okay, for clarification the V class trans-Atlantic portions DO accrue AS and DL miles if they are ticketed as a Delta codeshare, even if the carrier is AF?

And if the marketing carrier is AF then the do accue on DL, but do NOT accrue any AS miles for the trans-Atlantic leg.

BTW I see A380 service listed for SFO-CDG... nice!

Lax-sfo-ams-got-ams-sfo-lax $573.80

A weekend run in December with 1-night stay in GOT. Maybe not the absolute cheapest routing but seemed like a good use of a $200 Diamond voucher.

First visit to Sweden.

Just changed the date (to an early November weekend) and routing to max the miles a bit:

LAX-JFK-CDG (AF)-GOT (AF)

GOT-AMS (KL)-ATL (DL)-LAX

Upped the fare about 9 bucks but brought the cost down to a little over 4.2 cpm.

Not sub-.04 cpm but not too shabby.

Now I just need a convenient hotel for overnight.

However having trouble with the Delta codeshare flights between LAX and PDX, Delta's web site not showing them.

Thanks

What a bummer. I don't see how this is your fault that the ticket wasn't issued. Didn't you have email confirmation of booking? I would be mad enough to file a complaint.
