[PREM FARE GONE] EY: CMB-DFW $1440 ai RT in First!

Plenty of availability throughout the year.

Route through JFK vs ORD to get F, otherwise you'll sit in J since EY doesn't have an F cabin to ORD. You can also fly via CDG and FRA with AA on the TATL sector to DFW.

This is a full F fare - no change or cancel fees. Stopovers allowed. Bookable on the EY website (though it displays a very limited selection) and several OTAs. Mine ticketed within minutes without issues.

Some reminders:
- Do NOT call the airline or your travel agent. No excuses.
- If you are a blogger, don't be a sleezeball and publish this on your blog.
- Do not ask whether this fare is valid in the opposite direction - you know the answer.

Happy hunting.


Edited to add: It's over. Just checked on EF and the same fare basis is now loaded at 10,416 USD. Hope it sticks. Happy & safe travels everyone!

I played around with other major US destinations but could not find anything. Someone else might have better luck.

I can still see it on the EY website and the big O. For OTAs, you'll need to specify class of travel as J not F.

One way also available.

Remember:

Remember that you can cut a shorter connection in JFK if you wish since AUH has pre-clearance.

Also beware with prepaid reservations elsewhere since EY has a history of canceling mistake fares.

Found the fare - thank you OP! Just checking - this doesn't earn any EQM/EQP on AAdvantage even though the TATL segment is operated by AA?

I misread it as EK. EY, sadly, does not credit to AS.

I'm seeing $911 one-way, wide-open schedule, seeing it on ITA.

I got it down to $ 1410.00 but CDG-DFW is not in F. Still looking for other dates, this is a super deal. Would combine this with a MLE stay. Thanks OP^
