[FARE GONE] KE: JFK-ROR $560 ai

Not sure this would work as a true MR but an interesting deal to Palau looks bookable on expedia and seems like wednesday dep in JAN. Not sure what KE earns in ST I'll leave that up to everyone else.
Cheers

Excellent find!!! Books into S class which earns 100% on DL. Now just need to find dates that work for my schedule.

I think they fat-fingered the YQ. JFK-ICN is on the A380.

This is definitely a mistake. It is pricing the AD75 fare which is for travel agents but making it available to anyone.

Warning to anyone booking this for the miles. AD75 fares do not earn miles so be careful.

Great MR material.

JFK-->ICN-->ROR is 6887mi+2140mi = 9027mi

Multiplied by 2 for return flight = 18054mi for $560ai = 3.1cpm.

I see availability in Jan (example dates 4Jan-9Jan)

Again, you likely will NOT earn miles on this ticket (assuming it is honored) since it is an AD75. If you do get them you'll be lucky but you shouldn't count on it.

Ohhhhhh I see it now:

Agent Discounts

ADULT - CHARGE 25 PERCENT OF THE FARE.
TICKET DESIGNATOR - AD75.
NOTE -
DISCOUNTS APPLY. PLEASE CONTACT KE FOR MORE
INFORMATION.
ExpertFlyer lists the JFK-ROR S class base as $1922 RT so this is 25% of the normal price.

Still an amazing fare though even without miles! Sad that I can't use it as I'm going to be in CR then.

I was unable to book this fare through Travelocity, Expedia, or Koreanair.com. Error messages or increased fares galore.

Is there any way of booking it with a stopover in ICN?
