Books into AB Z-class (Economy), don't book it.

Mods please close the thread.

GeoStar? Dont think this is going to happen...also just 1 bag.
This will get you an Economy seat and annoying eMails for the refund claim.

Exclamation

Do not book this. It can only end in tears. The tickets are likely issued in economy (1 bag only) - if they get issued at all - and you will likely not be able to cancel.

Looks like a Portuguese OTA based in Lisbon, has anyone here dealt with them before?

This is already all over several blogs - including reports that tickets are issued in Z class which is economy. So, don't book!

Looks like they're ticketing this in Z class, which is Air Berlin economy. Do not book!

First rule of booking a cheap ticket....make sure you see the booking fare before paying!

I wouldn't touch this with a bargepole.

Helpfully they showed the fare rules, without the actual fare code and without a reference to the cabin apart from their own text. Interestingly enough the booking in their system is still listed as Business, its only when you look at the fare code on the ticket receipt do you see Z.

Sadly I'd taken a gamble on this before the comments about it started appearing; will see how we get on with a refund/Sec75 chargeback.

ETA: Just spoken to a lovely lady at GeoStar, she prompted me whether I was calling about this fare. Unsurprisingly they've gotten a large number of calls about this. Apparently there was a system error with AB this morning, the fares were supposed to be in Y (as we all now know), and so they're freely offering cancellations or to continue in Y. Just need to drop them an email to confirm the cancellation and they'll issue a full refund.
