Smile [PREM FARE GONE] AA A/F Fare: CMN-MIA - $741/$1159

Haven't posted in a while, but wanted to drop you guys a really nice first class fare between Casablanca, Morocco and Miami, Florida.

A fare (restricted) for $741, F fare (fully flexible/refundable) for slightly more at $1160. One way possible (F fare, can't seem to price the A) from CMN to MIA for $620; the reverse doesn't work, unfortunately.

Routing must be via MAD and LHR. Overnight layover required in either Madrid or London. No minimum stay, no maximum stay. Next day turns possible. Quick search shows that any date combination works as this is a fully flexible first fare.

For those of you who aren't fans of AA F, you can fly BA metal across the pond instead on select dates.

Enjoy!

I don't believe you can book this on AAVacations as it departs out of Morocco, but IIRC, if you book BA metal across the pond (so there aren't any flights on AA metal), you could call in and keep moving around your dates around (free of charge) which will trick the ticketing system into giving you a special fare. Could be totally wrong, though. I'm sure there are people on this board that know how to actually do it, or properly "trick it."

It only works with very specific connections. It does not come up in general search. The fare only allows flights on AA and IB.

You can also force an extra connection through JFK which then gives you BA metal options for the LHR JFK segment.

How are you forcing the JFK connection?

Hmm, wasn't able to price out the additional JFK leg... Could you post a screenshot, or provide dates used?

FYI for those on the fence, I'd book now and think about it later. Dates are completely flexible, and the ticket's fully refundable. AA is typically quick at pulling fares, but have always honored them.

Had no problem getting through to payment on the AA website. Use ITA Matrix (https://matrix.itasoftware.com/) and once you have an itinerary that works, use https://bookwithmatrix.com/ to book directly though AA.

EDIT: Or, if you're buying the full fare ticket, just book on any date and change the flights to your desired flights/dates. There should not be any fare repricing as it's fully flexible.
