Hold up, no. The price here is the difference. Even long haul eco deals are oftentimes more than 300 nowadays so this is attractive to anyone, not just people lurking in a premium fare forum. I mean, I went ahead and booked this even though I got food poisoning in Iberia C just last month

While the other does include refund before departure and has the classic fare rules directly from the carrier.

Anyone see this? How can I locate the true fare rules for the fare that doesnt include refund before departure?
The fare rules have been posted upthread. I posted the fare basis in about post 3 or 4. You can use that to find the rules on ExpertFlyer.

For anyone looking for mileage crediting info, just called AA (yes after the sale has ended), Latam ticket stock with 045- are NOT eligible for miles credit to AAdvantage even if the flights are operated by Iberia. Alaska Mileage Plan seems to be eligible for miles.

Didn't realize "secretflying" posted this fare earlier today. Well, no wonder and we are screwed then. (Did I mention I really really hate "secretflying"?)

Ticket stock shouldn't matter, it's the airline code that precedes flight number matters. Are you booked on one of those IB operated flights with a LA flight number?

As far as I can tell, it's the same site.

There is no mention of ticket stock on the AA site. These will credit to AA if it has an IB code and IB metal. Flights operated by Latam wont credit to AA

Would IB marketed but LA operated earn BA avios? One of my legs is on that and the rules are a bit unclear I think

Edit: looking up my reservation on BA.com shows this, hopefully it's true!

On the AA website, it list that it has to be an Iberia marketed and operated flight. So since this is on Latam ticket stock, it is not an Iberia marketed flight, and hence no mileage credit to AA. Spoke to another AAdvantage agent and confirmed it. Just called Alaska too, and they also said that on a Latam stock, only the flight operated by Latam will credit to Alaska but NOT the segments operated by Iberia, even though Iberia is OneWorld. So.... basically, these are great fares but useless in terms of mileage crediting.

As far as AA is concerned Marketed doesnt mean ticket stock. IB operated and marketed means IB plane and IB flight number. Ticket number doesnt matter in the slightest.

You could have an IB flight with an IB flight number on a United ticket stock and AA would credit it.

If it has an IB flight number, it is an Iberia marketed flight.
If it is operated by Iberia, it is an Iberia operated flight.
Ticket stock does not matter in both cases for your mileage credit.


BTW: LA earns miles on Lufthansa's Miles & More - in case you may want to earn some and redeem it on domestic UA flights.

I think this is correct. For mileage earnings, only need to pay attention to flight numbers and operating airline.

Generally, flyertalk members are far far more knowledgeable about FF programs than the first agent that picks up your phone call.
