[PREM FARE GONE] B6/AA - JFK-CDG - $1308 r/t - Business

This fare has been around since May 24, 2023, and I'm not sure if it's a mistake or an intentional fare, but I'll post it and hopefully it's the latter. Right now JetBlue is selling flights from New York (JFK) to Paris (CDG) that are operated by American for $1308+ in business class starting in December 2023.

EDIT - You can technically find this fare as early as June/July 2023 between the dates listed in the fare rules below. For example, departing July 10,2023 - $1308 roundtrip

I realize that winter is low season, but this fare is lower than normal and it's supposed to be a holiday surcharge fare, but appears to be missing the surcharge (carrier imposed fees), which makes me question if it's correct. The fare is also much lower than Mint on the same dates or the same ticket marketed and operated by AA.

You can find these tickets and buy them directly from JetBlue on their website. They do not show up on Google Flights.

B6 don't use YQ/YR on most B6 Codeshare Fares.

if AA metal booked thru B6 earns AS miles, I’d be *very* interested

Ok, thanks for that clarification!

I have been trying to figure out the mileage thing! I know you can't credit a B6 marketed and operated transatlantic flight to AA, but not sure about this situation - B6 marketed / AA operated.

This fare is also available from some other US cities as well but you would need to have;
- Mint availability from JFK to SFO/LAX/SEA/SAN in "I" fare class under the B6 original flight number
- American Domestic availability from first from LGA to various other cities in "I" fare class under the B6 codeshare flight number.

For example;

MIA-LGA ( B6 marketed, AA operated ) + JFK-CDG would work.

credit to BA

Does anyone know if booking the AA flights (but having B6 ticket stock number) will credit to BAEC?

Don't know. I wasn't able to figure that out.

It still works on many of those dates.

EDIT - Oops, guess I'm too slow.

EDIT 2 - Wouldn't surprise me if it did disappear soon since it has been on SF for just over an hour (since about 8AM Eastern this morning).

If you know SF watches this forum and good fares die as a result, why make it easy for them to kill off the deals?

Now that the alliance between AA and B6 has to come to an end, I'm not even sure you'll earn AA miles for this.

It's operated by AA so I'm guessing yes, but not sure.

You can still find and book this!
