R.I.P CMB Run?

The CMB-run seems gone.
Cannot find the prices that were there yesterday.

And I was going to book within a week! *cry*

EK pulled theirs several months back, I guess it was only a matter of time until the other airlines followed.

You could still go on EK through the QF codeshare though. (well, until now..)

Man, this sucks big time!

What airlines are you trying and when? I bought two roundtrips last month (MH-BA-AA-EY) and it was the same low fare.

If you are just relying on an OTA, that is likely the problem. Most of these trips are "too complicated" for Expedia/orbitz, etc. You need to work with a TA experienced with these fares. One of the best on these fares is a FTer. PM me and I'll shoot you his name/contact info. FWIW, EK no longer participates directly in this fare, although you can still book EK metal using a QF codeshare, but for a price.

The fares were still working yesterday with OTA's, but appears to be doubled in price now

Sad to say, I think he is right... Looking at MH, CX, EY, all the usual suspects in Oct and January. The fare name is different.. Looks like AOWISC is done..
