[PREM FARE GONE] EK: YYZ to 3 continents in F starting from US$ 4k

Not cheap but earns lot of RDM's on AS. Elites can earn as much as 4.75x miles.

A few examples below:
YYZ-CAI for ~4k - https://goo.gl/flights/hfPR
YYZ-JNB for ~4.3k - https://goo.gl/flights/rsNM
YYZ-HKG for ~4.5k - https://goo.gl/flights/SzGJ
YYZ-CHC/MEL/SYD for ~6k - https://goo.gl/flights/PzNh (again not cheap but you will earn lots of RDM's as AS elite)
YYZ-MAA for US$3.8k - https://goo.gl/flights/5Jmr
YYZ-MXP for ~2.9k - https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/29198506-post26.html

Edit: Works from most major airports in Canada (eg. YVR/YYC/YYZ/etc) going to select cities in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia/NZ. Prices vary by destination.

Same prices out of YVR (connecting through SEA). Thanks OP! Will be using this for a trip down to SA.

EK does not serve YVR I think, so this is referring to similar fares but on other carriers out of YVR?

edit: Nevermind, I initially read SEA as South East Asia instead of Seattle, which of course EK does serve.

Its an AK flight connecting to the EK flight in Seattle. Unfortunately the Seattle route is served by the 777, not A380 as far as I can tell.

Great fare though, especially for AK loyalists.

Anyone able to route through LAX or SFO?

Thanks OP. Already posted on One Mile at a Time.

Too bad this isn't the new EK F.

I just tried to book YYZ-HKG-YYZ for C$5900 RT but I get an error message when I try to complete the booking (on the last page, after entering credit card details):

Your booking isn`t complete.

Nevermind, I tried it again and it worked! Thanks OP!

Now I'm gonna buy a few more for a family trip. Just need to decide where to fly to!

I'm not seeing an avenue to ticket from YVR at these fares w/ the Alaska flights.
(Google flights suggests calling Emirates -- not happening!)
Any guidance?

Yeah, I'm not sure either how to book from YVR without calling. YVR-MXP is ~$3100 according to Google Flights. If someone knows how to book these, that would be great. Thanks.

EK may be using the same fare basis for YVR and YYZ. Although, I can't seem to pull the fare basis from the EK booking page. If we have it, we can try and replicate the fare from YVR on ITA. Can anyone share the fare basis?

I can get Expedia/Hotwire to give me a routing for $4820. The issue is that GF has YVR-SEA-YVR is in AS Y, and Expedia/Hotwire only gives options for AS F.
I can't seem to replicate on Matrix, nor find the fare on EF.


Update: It looks like an A fare. Did some digging in the EK forum and finally found the fare rules on EF. 7 day minimum stay requirement and 45 day advanced purchase. Still can't seem to price it with the YVR-SEA-YVR in economy, though.
