[PREM FARE GONE] LH VCE to BOG 920-950 USD per person minimum of two

Just booked this great fare for Jun next year. Still waiting for e tkts to arrive.
After finding here a fare from Vienna for about 1100 eur, I checked for curiosity from Venice which is much closer to me. Hey, what a surprise! Great deal. I played a little with Kayak and Momondo which redirect you to others like Expedia, Orbitz and others. Fares vary, sometimes get higher and I finally booked through Expedia. I picked in June, but I think it is highly available through other months as well
On one leg you get direct Fra-bog on 346, on other leg you get an extra stop in PTY or SJC or MIA where you can also combine with LX or OS. So I choose bog-mia on Av 330 connecting to Zrh on LX 330. So all lie flats I suppose anddifferent products to compare.
Just hoping they are not cancelling this fare!

I see PAXCNIA as a companion fare:

NOTE - THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS INFORMATIONAL AND NOT
VALIDATED FOR AUTOPRICING.
LUFTHANSA COMPANION FARE
APPLICATION
AREA
THESE FARES APPLY
FROM AREA 2
TO AREA 1.
CLASS OF SERVICE
THESE FARES APPLY FOR BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE.

This fare does show up for me when searching on ITA for 2 passengers, but the a.i. price per passenger is ~US$1500. The base fare (per passenger) is indeed ~US$780, but there also is a YQ of US$575 and then some taxes. On ITA, I cannot replicate the cheap a.i. price the OP found, not when looking for two passengers and certainly not when looking for just one passenger.

Edited to add: OP is correct, the price does show up when searching for 2 passengers on kayak, and it can also be pulled up on expedia e.g. Nov. 14 - 21 when doing a simple VCE-BOG search for 2 passengers in business.

Have played around with this and I also see the fare. Works out of MXP too (probably other) and for a single passenger too.

Was about to pull the trigger, but I'm alarmed by the fact that I can only find one TA, Bravofly, that offers the flight. Other OTA's that I see on Expedia, Kayak etc charge the advertised sale-price, so seems this Bravofly has not included YQ!?

Reading this particular OTA's poor online reviews with regard to bad customer service, I'll pass on this, even though a trip to Columbia over Easter was very tempting.

Fingers crossed for all of you who jump on this.

It looks like a self-dump when an AV segment is included...the same happens on first class (fare basis AAXCNIA) which costs ~2.300Ä pp.
These companion fares are also availalbe to other destinations (GRU/GIG/EZE/etc) but the routing table doesn't seem to include AV.

Sorry, forgot to mention that I searched for three pers, so I guess min is two.
i got e tkt numbers which I can see on expedia, as well as on LH and LX my bookings.
So I guess everything is fine.
Go to momondo which redirects you to expedia. When I tryed expedia alone, the price was almost doble.
Good luck to everyone!

Fare also available out of other Italian airports BLQ, FLR, TRN. You can easily find one without going through MIA. Some through PTY.

On on a side note FLR routes via GRU and itís only $909.

Thanks for sharing. Does anybody have access to the fare rules around minimum stay and travel periods?

It's been gone for a while now, it has 500E of YQ tacked on now. Still a pretty good deal at ~1300E, but not as amazing as it was before.

Looks like maybe not completely... I just booked using OS on outbound, AV ticketed.
