[Premium Fare Gone]: EY ATH - KHI o/w us$189

Looks to be bookable untill late October, although Google Flights/ITA shows availability untill April 2019

Interestingly, Google Flights reports exactly the same fare for Economy class

I doubt you would get to fly this in J.

Note: anyone thinking of using this to get from ATH to AUH on the cheap - be warned that if you don't have the necessary visa/permission to travel to Pakistan [if applicable in your personal circumstances] at the time of check-in at ATH, you are likely to be denied boarding and unable to travel to AUH.

Great find!.

Price out on many sites: https://www.momondo.com/flight-searc...s?sort=price_a

Comes up as refundable so likely correct fare class mapping.

Visa may not be so expensive and some people always wanted to go to Pakistan...

From a mileage perspective, it seems this has to be issued as all PK flightcodes, which will restrict any mileage earning potential.

Also - I really doubt they would allow anyone to fly these tickets in business class. But you could depart as soon as tomorrow if you were feeling adventurous...

Speaking as someone who has been to Pakistan, departing any day to Karachi is for the adventurous

Lol.

I meant that, as in all such cases, you probably stand a greater chance of having the ticket honoured as ticketed if you can leave almost immediately. Though of course that is never a guarantee (look at the recent AF F fares from IST - people were downgraded overnight after checking in online). Hence, dropping everything to suddenly depart on a ticket like this will always be an adventure.

I guess if you have an onward flight from KHI, you won't need a visa?

Looks like a booking error with Pakistan air. They may charge the 2k...when it comes to processing!

It's actually Pakistan International Airlines (PK, PIA) fare, even though the operating carrier is Etihad Airways (EY) both on Athens-Abu Dhabi and on Abu Dhabi-Karachi,

Damn, I should have thrown in a stopover. Much less hassle with the visa.
