noob questions.
I see a ticket # shown on Iberia/Finnair, can't retrieve PNR on Latam.
Ticket number starts with 045 so I presume Latam "ticketed" the entire routing or just Latam portion?
I have:
MAD-SCL Iberia # (Iberia operated)
SCL-GRU Latam # (Latam operated)
GRU-MAD Iberia # (Latam operated)

Does anyone know why IPC flights do not show up? Are they IP blocked?

Got an A330-200 on the return tho, only 19 business class seats on that aircraft
just bought 2 at 1k a piece directly with IB - still a good deal tbh. Plenty of avail in March (when I bought those flights for). Fully flexible. But fwiw probably a higher likelihood of it flying as well. I bought a similarly exciting fare (sub 500 in J) from LATAM a couple of months ago but it was cancelled within days. Lets see if that one sticks!

Yes, and it’s not new with them. But that info can be updated/changed later with the airline in a way that shouldn’t cause any hassles during the trips.

This fare is also available departing from other cities in Spain (such as AGP, BCN, BIO, VLC)

Obv a mistake in pricing since full flexible are way cheaper than less advantageous fare buckets. But fwiw probably a higher likelihood of it flying as well.

Much less likelihood when people call it a mistake.

Entire ticket.

Sorry to say this but LATAM will soon cancel the tickets. LATAM did that for the ex BUD tickets to GRU/Brazil 2 years ago.

I could only find RT around 980 from Madrid on the IB website (around 1020 from other Spanish airports, except BCN which was more expensive). If this is what you paid per ticket then the booking class is most likely J (full fare)

That's still a fabulous deal. The earlier discount seems to be gone, but $ / 1000 is still quite attractive. Especially if that one for $ / 1,000 gets ticketed by IB instead of LA. I'm not very confident the LA ticketed ones will get honored.

I weep for the guy with the 12 bookings, he may end up paying 12 cancellation fees...On a fully refundbable fare cancelled by the airline...

Too bad I didn't see this before the guy sitting next to the toilet showed up...

In any case the current 1k fare is not bad either as it's fully flex J that allows unlimited stopovers and free cancellation. Some creative routings seem to work like SCL-MAD-LHR-AGP on the return.
