LAX-SIN RT for 315.00 AI

Saw this fare in Fareboom.

LAXHKG (AA) HKGKUL (CX) KULSIN (MH) SINHKGLAX (CX)

Sample date May 08 return May 16

Am skeptical about this fare and this OTA.

Anyone dare to book?

Amazing fare if for real!

I just checked UA hoping they would match and no dice yet.

Very interesting... looks like fareboom has a real 24-hr cancellation policy without fees. Might try one to see if the fare will show up on AA (and thus count as special fare -- would be amazing if so)

I got it to show up on Fareboom for $311 departing 4/7 and returning on 4/15, transiting through HKG (afternoon layover) with AA/Cathay outbound and through Tokyo (morning/early afternoon layover) with JAL/AA inbound. If I had a need for EQM and had a good strategy for which airline to credit this to, I'd be all over it. I'm going to pass on it since it's a hodgepodge of airlines with inconvenient departure/arrival times.

Booked 5/11-5/15 LAX-HKG-SIN-HND-SFO-LAX for $322. Given AA record locator, currently showing status as "in ticketing queue." Will report back after completed.

Successfully ticketed. Shows up on aa.com w/ no fare details so I believe this will credit as a special fare.

Same site, dates, price but all AA flight numbers which is not good. Are you finding non-AA flt numbers? Are you thinking this will be treated as a special fare because it may be bulk? Price is great.

That would be a phenomenal deal if so. I don't know if I can take the risk but man... ~$1700 EQDs for $311? Just wow.

My confirmation email contains this section:
”THIS IS AN EXCLUSIVE MEMBER-ONLY FARE
The purchased fare is subject to an exclusive Fareboom agent-only negotiated contract. This negotiated fare is not offered or sold directly to the public by the ticketing airline. All questions or concerns about the fare should be directed exclusively at Fareboom at [email protected].“

It's better if the CX flights code as AA. Deep discount economy fares on CX earn nothing with AA. JL has better earnings on cheap economy fares.

Still there, but appears to be an exclusive to fareboom.

What are the change penalties on the fare? And could AA EVIPs be applied?

site claims change fee is $120 + $100 additional agency fee. Cancel fee is more than ticket cost. Should ticket as normal O or Q depending on which was selected, its not a basic economy should should be upgradable
