Agree with credits^ Booked this yesterday for March 2012.

Note that the fare expires on 18-MAR-11 regardless of being fixed.

Could not trick crazy YQ even though useful combinations are permitted.

One more note: rules in KVS/ TVN are wrong. Use ITA or Expedia.

Second stopover is EUR 50 but I am sure if this one is added after departure staff will forget to check this.

I do not see this fare on Expedia or Expert Flyer, even on the 6.22-6.30 dates listed.. What am I missing?

Use addt'l options, pick Premium Economy and restrict search to Turkish. That should do the trick.

Surely no system will look for HKG-LAX via Atlantic by default

TK (THY) website is available as well. Note that for some dates there is no premium economy class so far for LAX, this could be the reson for error as well.

There are 2 fares, but A (the cheaper one) is not bookable at all. While U is better (more flexible) and not much more expensive.

These were created on 11-MAY (effective from 12-MAY), so these are very fresh. and will expire as I noted already on 18-MAY.

Now is a weekend so there is no one to do the fix.

Based on what happens with the base (first level fare URTHK) after 18MAY it could be that our U2RTHK (unavailable via EF) will also increase by 5%, which in our case means USD 7

This is the fare with ticketing date after 18-MAY-11

Finally this is the fare which is being discussed here:

If anyone has access to routing rules/ RBD Chart 2 for this fare please post the booking codes: the fare theoretically allows to travel on codeshares and other *A flights but it does not seem to price out in those cases.

Found mid-week dates Feb-2012 and june dates as per suggested above, USD$8xx via expedia.com. Pity i'm a NZ member so only 40 APD per segment which is terrible, however a great fare. I definitely want to use this fare but stil trying to see how I can make it work, wont know for another 12-24 hours, hopefully its still up!

This is for one way, but seem to be similar to RT.

I did not know OW is available too. AI price should be about USD 450.
