$352.50. I found some dates in late July; though didn't look very hard so it might be available earlier and/or later.

Includes the 767-300ER both ways between JFK & ATL. ATL & MKE are a CRJ900 with FC cabin.

4,287 EQM (2,858 x 1.5) = 0.082cpm without elite bonuses.

I bought one of these tickets for my daughter and me. Great availability and no Saturday requirement. I also checked lowest coach and it was $153 AI on DL.

Just got an e-mail from BA. They are offering a 3-day (through July 6th) 4th of July $1776 all-in Club World Class fare sale from the East Coast to London (including a free hotel upgrade offer), good for travel through early December.

Unfortunately for me, fares from the West Coast are considerably higher ($3294), but might be of interest to you East Coast'ers.

ITA now has business class fares from NYC-LON at about $2k not only for BA but for DL, UA, AA as well. BUT - they are not showing up yet on DL's web site for example. Don't know about the others but this looks like a matching fare situation and quite a great deal for the middle of the summer. FTers should be all over these, assuming ITA is correct and the fares have just not yet loaded on the respective airline web sites.^

FWIW Continental appears to have kicked off the Thanksgiving business class fares to Europe early this year, fare basis code RR3SIE bookable on Continental.com. LAX-LHR at $2459 all-in and LAX-CDG at about $2600 all-in, among others. Date limitations are fairly tight around the Thanksgiving holiday.

Apologies if this is old news.

It appears to be a $1776++ fare, FYI.

I don't know if they changed the original T&C since you posted, but thanks! ^ (my family may be able to use this fare)

$2500 a/i on LAX-LHR is amazing. West Coast routes have gotten expensive...even the cheapest NZ fares are hovering mid 3's now.

CO: ORD-SJO in First (R class) $860 AI

Looked for a thread that had this fare several months ago but couldn't find it. The fare is back. Routings through EWR or IAH are available. Not bad for a great destination. Dates were in November but others (e.g., February) are available.

LAX is about the same price too. I couldn't get LAN to price it out without the YQ, but perhaps some others with more skills might get it to.

I believe this loophole is gone, but I also think this wouldn't have worked anyway since CO incorporates the surcharge into the fare, right?
