Another one of those fares. Books in true J on ET.

For those interested, I suggest use ITA and route through ADD and HKG which gets you on CX between HKG-AKL - this one prices correctly and can be booked on some OTA.

Funny you're posting it since I also caught that one on my radar like an hour ago. Also works for RT. Kinda difficult to price correctly in any case.

Looks like you can route via HKG on the A350 CX or SIN on SQ. Very long layover in ADD, which is annoying, although I read Ethiopian provides transit accomodation (possibly for a reasonable fee).

Great finding, able to price in GDS, routing through ADD, SIN (SQ) or ADD, HKG(CX), fare basis JAF.

Great find thanks for posting - considering it covers most if the year inc Xmas / NY this won't be around long....

The each way of 50 hours seems a tad tiring

Well at this point we know what ET will do. It's night time there at the moment, so those who book now can only expect the unexpected. Cross your fingers.

Agree, $150 base fare for 4 long haul Business class, 2 on SQ can't be true.

It prices out on Priceline and CheapOAir, but I can't see the fare rules in detail for either.
