Ahh I cantbelieve I missed this one. Would’ve taken a chance since I’m based in SF and wouldn’t have had any positioning flights. Could’ve even done a run later today or tomorrow.

That being said, the service is consistently fantastique, food is great, and the lounge/transfer experience also top-notch.

I changed my flights online to have a longer layover in Paris; I keep hearing so much about the La Premičre lounge there that a 2h25 layover didn't seem sufficient :D

This is my first time getting in on a mistake fare!

I bought two trips for 2018!

Managed to book one-way SFO-CDG-LHR for June 2018. Two questions (I generally don't fly SkyTeam): 1) do I get access to La Premiere lounge upon arrival in Paris? 2) what is the best SkyTeam partner to credit towards? KLM gives only a pitiful amount since it falls under the new rules. Would Delta be better? I would just use them for an award booking.

(For the avoidance of all doubt: You need to look this up on the Air France or KLM websites; the Amadeus PNR won't work on any other website)

Err, it pulls up using my first name. I think in my haste to book I may have entered my first name and last name backwards.
Am I out of luck, as I assume this can't be updated?

Not one of my finest moments :(

haha! This actually made me get out of bed as I woke up, wanted to go back to sleep for an hour, but then just haddddd to check FT! ☺️☺️☺️

I found out about this deal on my phone on the 1st floor of my work. I work on the 4th floor. I sprinted up the steps, literally tripped on the last set of stairs to book this deal.

Also curious about the ground experience arriving in F and connecting to intra Europe J. Is there car transfer both ways?

Same here. It's because on some forms the AF site asks for first name first and others last name first...

Glad I am not alone... What's your course of action? Seems best to wait until the dust settles to do anything.

When you're travelling in First, apparently you have to give both your first and last name first...

(Was there ever a sentence in the English language that used the word "first" so many times???) :D :D :D

:D :D :D

I booked 2 SFO-CDG-LHR on the 777 both ways right when the deal broke. Selected seats during booking and can pull up my reservation on AF website, but now I cannot change my seats on the La Premiere legs, even though there's one seat available both ways. Could this be step 1 to cancellation?

I have a few reservations pending payment, which will expire in 45 minutes. I just booked one and it went fine. E-ticket was issued immediately. Tried to go online to see if I could change the dates of the booking. Any changes of date costs 8000$+... 😮
