[PREM FARE GONE] Xiamen J CDG-PEK for 618 EUR

Might be useful for some:



Works for me via Xiamen website. CDG-AMS books in economy (Y), AMS-PEK books in business (O).

Based on those codes for DL, the Y legs will earn 100% base, 100% MQM, and 20% distance MQD.
The O legs will earn nothing.
Same for FB earnings.
But the the price is great if you can do without any earnings.

Seems to be bookable out into late Autumn but not over Christmas
Some flights route CDG-FOC(Fujian)-PEK on their own 787 long haul, rather than CDG-AMS-PEK on KLM metal.
The stop in FOC in this case would be to change planes and clear Chinese immigration.

I did try a few other desinations within China other than PEK but no dice.

Looks like you can get some dates for sub-600 in the fall as well. Great find.

It's possibly worth pointing out that all passengers require a visa for FOC, no transit without visa allowed at all.

Great fare but not a mileage run.

Anyone found routing without domestic sectors in China? ie FOC/XMN-PEK

update: yes, KLM metals all the way, bookable on Expedia but need to hurry, as one of my preferred connections are gone, they're probably fixing it now.

update2: fares are probably gone, all back to normal $1800 USD

Looked like a very credible flash sale, with mix of y/j.
choose klm over xiamen because I assume klm food is better. Useful trip to get into Asia for cx/f from Vietnam.

Seems like an Error to me. 26 total hours in business for <600 seems to good to be a sale even for Xiamen which typically has cheap fares. That being said I have heard nothing but good things about Xiamen's food and service, but KLM gives you a cute little Dutch house so I think you made the right choice.

Did you try to pay and see what happened? When I queried the flights they displayed $700 but when I tried to pay it either resulted in error or jumped up normal prices.

Booked

Booked for June base fare showing EUR122 so probably a fat finger error
