Was there a point to this post as well? The thread title wasn't 'please comment on the opinions of others on a travel deal'. Everyone's got their right to chime in on the discussion, what gives you the right to tell someone off for doing so?

I think the point was quite clear. Too many threads are cluttered with drivel that doesn't add any value. Case in point.

sorry if this has been responded before. Yesterday I booked TLS to AKL in P class. I understand that it can be changed for free but if there is any difference in the fare, I will have to cover it. Very easily this ticket in September/October can cost 2500/3000, also in P, so I would have to pay an extra 1500/2000, this is not flexibility in my eyes, or I did not understand the rules correctly?

Thanks,
as long as you have not started your trip the repricing will be active and based on the fare that is available on the day of rebooking. after you started your trip (flown first segment) you can be rebooked for free within the P-class bucket. If P is not available, then you have to pay the fare difference as well.

As far as I have understood, P class availability is not enough. The other fare rules must also be fulfilled, meaning you will have to return no later than 3 months after the first stopover. Since the first segment cannot be later than June 30, you will still have to return by September 30 - or earlier if you started your trip before June 30.

Use Google translate. Go to Google and type google translate an entire webpage. Follow the steps given.
FYI: I initially tried chaging the .FR to .co.uk but this gave me the same intinerary but with a much higher price.

Thanks f0zzyNUE, but do I have to book the ticket with an stopover in Germany or Switzerland, or they will allow me to rebook segments 2 to 6 after having flown the 1st segment?

Good point also Chocolate Factory, thanks, but being able to re-book up to mid September it would help a lot.

But why would you want to rebook? Why can't you just use a stopover to push out your travel date, like in the screenshot I posted?

Ideally we would like to travel in June. Also TLS is only 4 hrs drive from BCN, so convenient to fly from that airport.

I did book yesterday but cancelled within the 24hrs because I am not sure if all this will be over by June.
It might be OK to fly from France to Germany but not all the way to AKL

So how would rebooking help...? You wouldn't be able to push the flight further back per the fare rules. But if you can't travel (travel ban etc.), you would probably get a refund or be able to rebook for a later date.

Looks dead now? Trying multiple destinations, and even Google flights seems to be updating prices to their normal rates now.

EDIT: CDG-AKL seems to be, looking for a quick 3-4 day mileage run. CDG-EZE still up....
