Cool! Looks like OWs answer to the ST sale, into Star hubs among others.

DL (SkyTeam) starts MSP-FCO nonstop service tomorrow.

Of course AZ is (currently) a SkyTeam member, although AZ is starting to snuggle up with one of the ME3, which I'm sure pleases DL enormously.

Looks like a great deal. Is there any way to buy these on BA as biz class and upgrade them to First using Avios? When I try clicking the buy with money, upgrade with Avios option I don't see anything coming up.

What's the fare class for the BA only flights? How much extra would the business fare earn for AA?

So...skyteam is attacking all *A, from Oslo to Zurich, with some OW hubs in the mix, like MAD, as well. so oneworld goes after Alitalia as retaliation, but that's it? interesting fare war. hopefully it heats up and oneworld starts attacking *A european hubs.

According to the fare rules I saw for the SkyTeam Central Europe sale, AZ flights are included as well as AF/KLM, but not VS.

This includes secondary markets in Italy as well. I picked up Pisa on this fare. I've seen Naples, Genoa, Florence, etc. at this price.

I also did a 23.5 hour connection in LHR for fun.
