Interesting that this fare had the same date restrictions as the initial Skyteam fare. But now the Skyteam fare removed it and has $1,600 fares through EOS.

The *A dates are:
Code:
OUTBOUND -
PERMITTED 18JAN 18 THROUGH 05APR 18 OR 01NOV 18 THROUGH
21DEC 18 OR 06JAN 19 THROUGH 04APR 19 OR 01NOV 19
THROUGH 19DEC 19 FOR EACH TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.
INBOUND -
PERMITTED 18JAN 18 THROUGH 12APR 18 OR 12NOV 18 THROUGH
28DEC 18 OR 14JAN 19 THROUGH 11APR 19 OR 12NOV 19
THROUGH 26DEC 19 FOR EACH TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.

I can't replicate some of the prices for *A at all, e.g. FRA-MIA.
But nice thread and nice to see that *A matched ST.
Would also be interested to figure out how to book flights for early 2019 since fare rules allow this in general.

You have 2 options:
1) FRA - YVR
15-16 FEB
Nonstop with Lufthansa on the way to YVR
And one stop in SEA in the return flight

2) STR - YVR
15-17 FEB
Train to FRA, then a flight to DEN and then to YVR
Nonstop flight to FRA and then a train to STR

You can only book 330 days in advance. That is why nothing is available beyond dec 2018 now.
