Let me give you High Quality, Business Purpose, Hot Hot Lie Flat Bed for under 300 USD (No Lie)!


You lie or lay or do whatever you want to do.
(no short time: just right for pleasurable ride and sound sleep)
Nice dessert included.

For a long life of this deal, I will only share hints via PM with a few major contributors of this board (sort of thank you gift and bribe in advance). I will only respond to whom I think he/she is a major contributor based on my subjective criteria.

PM by March 27, 24:00 EST. I will respond on 28th.
If the deal is killed before I respond, I will send you a screen capture of the deal.

Three words summary of this deal for newbies: FDing is Engineering.

Found, having difficulty replicating. Are you sure this is even actionable?

Hi All,

I have a quick question: I am a novice and booked my first FD using a 3x from C2-C3 Return. Nothing special, not even a good price, but still the cheapest option I found (400 euros RT).

I have received a booking confirmation via the OT incl. Airline Reservation code for both the Main Airline as well as the 3x Airline, an OTA reservation code and E-Ticket Numbers. All seems to be fine, I can look up my flight on checkmytrip as well as on the 3x airline. However, If I try to look up my reservation on the main airline using the e-ticket no's or the airline reservation code, it gives me an error message stating that the flight has been already cancelled.

Do I need to worry? Is there something I can do? Shall I call the OTA? Not sure what I can write here, so please feel free to contact me via PM.

Thanks all for your help.
Cheers

Hi All,

quickly wanted to update that all is in order. I just waited 2 days, anxiously, but with good hope and everything was solved automatically.
I don't want to bother you with newbie panics again, so rather I'd like to thank you guys for your responses.

To the newbies out there booking their first FD's. Panic is part of the game. But stay calm and patient. Ask the pro's here first, what to do if you think things are going wrong. By hearing their advices, you keep this game alive.

It's a great feeling to fly the first FD, cutting 50%, even though the final price was still 400EUR. Not sure how you guys manage to fly longhaul for 150-250 Euros, but the next one for me should be closer to your prices :)

Well, again, thanks!

You should definitely try it. No way to C4 on FR, but you can fly many other routers from MAD with them...my best intra C2 carrier:-)

Granted that fellow dumpster elpueblo does not belong to the dumbsters who determine the class of service by the OTA’s display, I suggest some wet T-shirt contest rules to follow:

For many a teenager, who can’t get close to a pair of b**bs, one b**b might be better than none. In a wet T-shirt contest, however, this would be a totally different category (don’t know if there is such a thing, but experienced travelers would know a good place to start looking for it).

While many an adult seems to like silicone (I don’t), screenshots are plastic when they are based on an EF and when that fare has been pulled already.

While some people see frequent flyer miles as a currency, this is so much of a different category that FT offers a specific thread for that kind of … uhm … business.

If you have only one b**l, please consider these guidelines for the next d**k contest, too.

That said: Chapeau! to elpueblo if his finding is in line with the above. ;)

If you really want to implement rules for a wet T-shirt contest, I suggest 1 criterium: having b**bs. Short and simple.

Perhaps an implication :-): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzoazPPC7b8

Nah ;)
