Is this fare still limited to June 2020 bookings?

You can get creative with a stopover. CDG-ZRH before JUN30, the rest later on.

Can anyone tell me how to fix the language on Expedia - when I click "Book on Expedia" from Google Flights, it puts me in Expedia for the departing country (e.g., expedia.fr for departing from NCE) and everything is in French. Can't figure out how to fix that to save my life...

Thanks buddy, got a link? I tried on Google flights & nothing

EDIT: Found it thanks, though it does add around 170 € to the total price.

Too bad Air NZ still has that terrible seat otherwise I'd be all over it

How? I can't find the fare on ITA Matrix at all, and I can't get the stopover to work on Google Flights either.
Would be perfect if we could travel over NYE...

I'm pretty sure there is a maximum limit for the ZRH stopover (which adds 100e to the price immediately), something like 3 months.

Found the fare on ITA Matrix now. This is PNCP11FR on LX.
You are right:
TRAVEL FROM LAST STOPOVER MUST COMMENCE NO LATER THAN 3 MONTHS AFTER DEPARTURE FROM FARE ORIGIN.
And:
VALID FOR TRAVEL COMMENCING ON/BEFORE 30JUN 20.
Inother words, even with a stopover, all travel must be completed by Sept 30 (or earlier if you fly the longhaul segment before June 30).

Example:

Looks like airlines desperate to get some cash in, even if it means discounting their J cabins.
I dont see this is stated anywhere. Can anyone refer to the full LH offer details where this is explained?

Fare rules

Not exactly what you asked for, but this bit in the fare rules:
"IF CHANGES ARE MADE TO ANY OTHER THAN THE FIRST TICKETED FLIGHT COUPON / THE FARES IN EFFECT AT THE TIME OF ORIGINAL TICKET ISSUE WILL APPLY PROVIDED THE NEW ITINERARY QUALIFIES FOR ALL THE PROVISIONS OF THE ORIGINALLY TICKETED BOOKING CODE FARE IGNORING ADVANCE RESERVATION OR TICKETING REQUIREMENTS."

So let's say you book first segment in end of June and complete it, the rest of your ticket (let's say all the other segments in your booking are in September) could be rebooked based on historical fare. Similar to the BA CPT BCN A class error fare last year. Although not sure if the rebooked flights also have to be within 3 month of your first flown segment.

For SQ metal SIN - SYD / BNE - SIN segments, I am only getting VA flight numbers. Any way to get SQ flight numbers to get *A miles?

Booked NCE-VIE in June, then VIE-PVG-AKL-PVG-VIE-CDG in end of September via Amex Travel (UK), Ł982 pp. Double MR points too

Hopefully could rebook after flying NCE-VIE using historical fare rule I mentioned above.

It's not so easy. First of all, there is a 250€ change fee:

CHANGES ANY TIME CHARGE EUR 250.00 FOR REISSUE.
And then, even if you can use the historical prices, the original rules must be met:

REPRICE USING FARES IN EFFECT WHEN TKT WAS ISSUED
PROVIDED ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET-
1. NO CHANGE TO 1ST FLIGHT COUPON
2. CHANGE IS BEFORE ORIGINAL SCHEDULED FLIGHT
3. A3/AC/AI/AV/BR/CA/CM/EN/ET/EW/HO/IN/JP/LH/LO/LX/
MS/NH/NZ/OS/OU/OZ/SA/SK/SN/SQ/TG/TK/TP/UA/ZH ANY FARE
TYPE EXCEPT EOU/ERU ARE USED
4. PUBLIC FARES ARE USED IF TICKETED FARE IS IN
PUBLIC TARIFF. PRIVATE FARES ARE USED IF TICKETED
FARE IS IN PRIVATE TARIFF
5. NEW TKT HAS EQUAL OR HIGHER VALUE THAN PREVIOUS
TKT
6. ALL RULE AND BOOKING CODE PROVISIONS ARE MET
7. ADV RES IS MEASURED FROM ORIGINAL TKT DATE TO
DEPARTURE OF PRICING UNIT
There are a dozen of these rules and they're not easy to read. I don't think you'll be able to change to a flight that you can't just book outright right now.

OK I should have been more clear, sorry for this. My question was if changes to 1st fare component before departure would preserve this sale fare given the commercial gesture from LH (one free change). If the answer is yes then the value if this sale increases a lot.

I'm not an expert at reading these rules, but I'd say: No way.
