Why would you call the airline? There is always one person who doesn't think.

Fare is officially dead

I just came off the Korean Air for $2700 fiasco, didn't pull the trigger on this deal because of relocation concerns - but hoping it sticks for all who booked and I'll see everyone at the next OTA opportunity!

Well, at least now it's probably safe to call the airline to select seats... :/

You can book directly with Iberia with nonstop on both directions for $1026. Still cheap imo and perhaps a greater chance to stick than 3rd party bookings.

Unless you've got wholly marketed and operated IB flights or wholly marketed and operated LA flight, I don't think it will be much of an AS run.

Iberia is pricing this wrong. J RT can be booked on IB for $500 each way. the non refundable are at 2400 each way.

PE one way and J return are pricing out at $700.

can't pull up my PNR on any site outside of LATAM. Was able to pull up with 045 ticket number on IB but can't do anything.

I think most of the J seats are sold for these routes. I am not sure how IB can survive this one without mass cancelation.

Yea $1k directly with the airline for this route still seems like a steal to me, more than happy with my purchase!

Got an A330-200 on the return tho, only 19 business class seats on that aircraft

And as far as we know, that smart person is still sitting next to the toilets.

You can change your seats as often as you want on the apps

What do they mean by "marketed" in this case? The airline that issued the ticket? (So does that mean that LA ticket stock earns nothing on AS?)
