Any experience with eskytravel.it? Will the ticket be issued in Italy? Their booking tool is highly flexible, like Priceline.

Or Poland? The sit is saying the invoice will be from Poland.

And yes, i know they charge fees to issue tickets and change/ refunds.

Expedia by the looks of it has pulled all of these fares that start at KRT. I haven't been able to price any out. It was s MS ticket.
I Did make one of these bookings but I cancelled within the 24 hour window as I changed to a TK ticket for a bit more which dropped me back at home in CPH

It looks like Sabre just fixed the error in converting nucs to usd/euro so at least for OTAS that use Sabre, party is over

Looks like the party is over. The routing I used now is 4000 USD. Look like most of the OTA that were offering the prices were on Sabre. I had a KRT-IST-KUL-ADL-SIN-IST-CPH routing.

I think it was the exchange rate between NUC and SDG that was actually not updated due to the sudden devaluation of the SDG. The NUC/USD and NUC/EUR have not changed.

People booking Egyptair tickets and people booking through OTAs such gotogate and Mytrip are in for a ride. I would not.


You are right!, my mistake.

Or maybe it was at the official exchange rate that is far from the real (black) market rates, hence no one is willing to sell hard currencies at these rates. The fix is likely a development fix not allowing ticketing outside Sudan at those official rates (as there is no one to pay for this party on FT) anymore.

So, we did actually buy the legitimate fare rate at the time of the SDG at low rate and then they decided to update the exchange rate to high again!

It's kind of BTC went from 57k down to 45k or 8k :-)

There is still 1 OTA which will book you back to your country of birth 380.58 Euros Business Class One-Way .

Yes just as with the RGN situation from several years ago, the pre devaluation fare denominated in local currency was correct but converted at the post devaluation rate of exchange. Several OTAs have made a short cut by eliminating KRT from the drop down menu / list of airports
