Got the whole family in A380 F for my wife's birthday. If/when this gets cancelled may just slip the Air France apology email into her birthday card.

few, if any of us, would book AF F at the normal asking price, which is why we are all so hot to trot for this deal.

and, clearly, i would have booked it online first at the $1500 price before calling AMEX. this isn't my first rodeo. go to page 1 and you'll see i'm in for 2 at the $1525 price point.
callmedtop and emofeng like this.

Required plugging the dates into the AF website directly, nonetheless deal now appears to have all but died.

Gonna be interesting to see how this one plays out. Another FT'er just pointed out to me that when I pull up my DL ticket on AF it shows "Premium Economy" as the fare type but with F seats. The ticket I booked on AF shows La Premiere.

Good for you! But I fail to see what spurred your defensive response...

Was driving when I saw this, so I called AMEX. They where able to book me one with a 20+ hour stop over in Paris on the way back from LAX. Thanks to the OP. Was able to get it for $1503 per person after the AMEX discount and fee.

It is dead as far as I can tell. Also, it was probably not a promo but a mistake. Stay tuned to see if these get honored.

Changes

This fare is fully refundable with no change fees. So you can of course cancel it and change the dates. Is a name change possible for no fee as well?

Couldn't find good dates for a RT with positioning from Europe, so only booked a OW SFO-LHR in August 2018. Will position with SAS award booking if this is really honored.
Fingers crossed since I'm already flying the Swiss errorfare MUC-SFO RT in March.

Had to fight with them a tiny bit to remove the phone booking fee, but these flights were not visible on the amextravel website.
Kudos to the penny wise pound wise brigade!!!
