For everyone who's changing seats on the AF website but booked with Delta: I wasn't able to choose seats during booking, but now that the tickets are issued, I can choose seats just fine on the DL website.

Two orders of magnitude means a factor of 100.

You surely don't mean to suggest that the going rate shoud have been $151,500????

(Or maybe you intended to give the fare in cents - in which case, it's correct and all's well )

Does your DL fare show as Premium Economy when pulling up on AF?

I was lucky enough to snag 4 of these round trips but sadly doubt this fare will live. Far too many tickets were issued for AF's liking. 3/4 of my trips are on AF's 777 and are fully booked in the F cabin....and I have a feeling none of them paid full fare prices. Lets just hope they don't tie up our money for too long.

Good morning folk.
Good news, fare is honoured.
Just spent 1hr+ on the AF Platinum line (+33 (0)1 85 14 82 23) because I put on hold my second booking, and was not able to pay it online after.
Agent we're shocked of the price, didn't want to confirm the ticket at this price.
Asked for a supervisor, who after an hour on the line, sent me the confirmation and ETKT number.
He confirmed me he spoke with his superior and they accepted the error.
Have a nice flights guys!

ONE-WAY base fare for FFFWUS jumped from $100 to $12629 when they "fixed" the fare. Not the more typical dropped digits. Not sure how they goofed this one...

Me too. Also, when trying to change LAX for SFO and get on the 77W.

I am convinced it was intended to be a Premium Econ fare based on what those who booked via DL are seeing on the AF website.

$100 -> $12629 (or $200 -> $25438), yeah that's 2 orders.

I highly doubt anyone at the phone reservation center has the authority to honor these fares; the order to honor or not honor is going to come from the Revenue Management Management team.

I'll only consider the fare honored when I'm actually sitting in the F seat.
