[PREM FARE GONE] RJ 54th Anniversary Sale: CAI-JFK/ORD $1000 Business rt and More
 
Looks like RJ is having some sort of sale on a large number of their routes. I am seeing rt from CAI to the US for around $1000. Also TLV to the US for around $1500 rt.

Sale is ending in a few hours and the RJ website isn't working well so act fast.

Shoutout to OMAAT for the headsup :)

Can't really find any routes out of HKG, BKK, KUL

Website seems to be working a bit better now.

Some ex-US fares that i found, wide open availability:
JFK-BEY $2088
JFK-KUL $2180
ORD-Muscat $2125

Hard to find the fare class but I'd imagine these would be I fares. Earn 1.5 EQM and 20% EQD on AA.

You can also find CAI-BKK r/t with Turkish Airlines from January throughout May for 850€. Would say that's a pretty decent deal too.

Just booked for myself for next year. I really shouldn't have but $1036 rt CAI-ORD for next year was too good to pass up :p

Also, mine booked into D not I, so it earns a 25% cabin bonus, as well as 25% EQD instead of 20% :D

Reminder to anyone booking, not sure if it's common knowledge: don't forget your original credit card you used with booking when you take your flight! My Chase Sapphire Reserve was used for fraudulent charges 2 days before I left for Amman on RJ over this Thanksgiving, and so they overnighted me a replacement. I didn't bring the original with me. Turns out, RJ agents cannot "open" the ticket to check you in without your original credit card. One supervisor politely told us we'd have to book another ticket, with no sympathy for the dramatic cost increase there would be in booking one last minute (he finally relented by "taking on the risk himself" after almost an hour and my girlfriend feigning tears). Then, when checking in for our flight back to JFK from AMM, it took over 2 hours for them to get someone on the phone who was willing to override and open the ticket, and we almost missed our flight.

All that said: even flying in Y with RJ was a solidly pleasant experience. Outside of the credit card issue, we had great flights, and even their Y longhaul product is solid with great service.

Edit: one more things on these. It seems that it's very unlikely your flights on RJ will credit automatically to AA. Only two of my four segments did, and zero of my girlfriend's did. AA requires you to fax a copy of your ticket receipt plus your boarding passes(!) to request credit. So don't forget to keep your boarding pass stub.
