Made me laugh! Why, do you think you own the fare or something?

Great find OP! Tried a 320 night stay in Boston but price jumped close to $2000. Any idea on maximum stay in Boston according to fare rules?

Because he cares about keeping fares alive. Apparently you do not.

This is a regularly recurring fare, Lucky has been posting this for ages and presenting it at conferences. It has historically ranged between $1100-1600. What makes it particularly valuable now is the EQD power, I believe, at x3. Obviously, the positioning is the weakness.

I follow the Colombo fares quite closely and a couple of recent interesting trends to note. First KL started to jump into the fray and add some extremely low fares where EY and QR usually covered the bottom rung. But more interestingly I have seen a number of these short term duration sales where the maximum stay has been extended. For these QR fares, there is a relatively long six-month max stay, where are most of the bottom rung fares are two or three months max.
There are actually a number of QR fares to BOS, mostly furring in name between 5, 4, 2 and 1 designation. The "accompanied travel" section of the fare rules seems to indicate that is the minimum number of travelers to get the particular fare. Am I reading that correctly that for the cheapest fare you need five travelers?!

Amazing deal. Booked this exact itinerary for $1300 at the beginning of this month. Anyone know of a way to cancel and rebook under the new pricing? My guess is that the change/cancellation fees would eat up the savings.

I can get the ***5NE fare to price at $890 round-trip. There do seem to be a number of different fare codes that have been filed some of which require a certain number of people to travel together to be bookable.

This is all part of their 'Travel Festival' promo (though Boston is not explicitly published on that page):

Thanks for the heads up, OP!
