I could book it on United.com but no ticket numbers so far. Probably I was too late for the party as well

Thanks OP did book it successfully on OS website for 853 € all in. Seat assigned and ticketed. Interestingly the Premium Economy was more expensive. Seems to be some kind of oversight.....

They clearly must have SOP for this given how fast it was done and it was done the right way. Meaning, pull the inventory, not the fare.

Clearly a missing zero - they wanted to increase the base fare by USD 490 but missed a zero in the new price. Said that prices FROM Asia to Europe are often outrageous, in this case cheapest P fare business is USD 3,500. So saying it was USD 2,500 discount per ticket (at least) would not make much sense.

Wanted to jump on this too, but I guess due to the fare rules/validity, could not find anything beyond 18 dec that was bookable. I guess it was only for fares valid until that day had the special price. Would have liked to try OS longhaul.

Cheers!

At this price any long haul product is worth it. Otherwise i don't care too much about OS, especially their crews, quite robotic and lacking in both class and warmth. My personal experience of course.

The OS page also showed some dates in 2020 - at least for the return flights back to Europe.
I was considering to start my status requalification early next year: VIE-BKK on 01.01.2020 was also availale for 15680 THB (before it was pulled).

Some of them are working from other airports such as HKT + CNX, although the stays are only a handful of days...

The day I get a haircut, first time in nearly 3 months and I miss this deal! Congrats whoever got on this deal.
