I think this is due to a 2-For-1 offer?

I was able to get the same INR 108,833 fare out of BOM. Ton of availability. Sample date range is outbound between Sept 4th to Sept 10th and inbound Oct 1st to Oct 7th. I am sure other dates would be available.

Base fare is INR 95,130 + INR 13,703 in taxes = INR 108,833 (approx $2231 return a/i).

Great find OP.

Too bad no *A miles.

cheers.

I'm starting to take a more realistic view on the fare anyway... after all it is only to HNL and I want to return to CLE!
Yes, you can ticket very easily with a local agent. From eXPerience one can ticket these from home as well...just arrived SIN from CMB in SQ J. Have never had an issue with questions of validity.

SV CMB-JFK O/W F 1229 C 810 ai.

I'm relatively new to this thread so forgive me if this is a repost/already well known/worthless. Good for a few segments on EK or even SQ if you go through SIN but the price rises for the extra distance. I don't think SV codeshares with any airlines TATL so you're stuck in SV for JED-JFK, similar prices to WAS.

great find! ^ Is there anyway one can route through LAX or anywhere in the west coast (i.e. last sector west coast / LAX to JFK)?

Others might not find it so, but I consider it a good find; thanks.
BTW, C can be had for as low as 785.

This is for TATL travel only. I'm glad someone can use this - I just wish there was a way to get the last leg on some alliance carrier's metal. There seems to be very little information regarding SV C or F - doesn't sound promising. On the upside, you can earn enough miles on SV for a one way flight somewhere in the middle east, I believe
