The 3x you are looking for has been spelled out in this thread several times. In black and white. It's there. city codes, countries, airlines. All there. just put in a bit of effort. it's the whole teach a woman to shop concept, rather than just buying her some shoes

OP is looking for:
SFO-BOM-SFO
Low BF's + $500 in Fat.

C-1 to c-3. (Chatrapati). Any help with direction to finding a good 3x would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Did you try some popular spot in C3 before, like Lion City, Chulalongkorn?
That will be easier to pick up the rhythm. :)

c1-c5 $400 ai rt (2 cpm)
 
While work + family commitments kept me away from this thread, and probably will for some time, I still miss it :cool:


People from c1 may visit the Cradle of Humankind and the Castle of Good Hope with 4 star airline for only $400 USD ai rt which is not bad at all for almost 20,000 mile trip fully credited to one of the favorite major alliance FF programs.

I tried about 3 to 4 variations in viet, thai, other surrounding countries. No luck. Will keep trying though.
Thanks.

Nowhere near is fine (just book it well into the future). My question was more the 3x itself. Is it a route that you'd expect to commonly take, or something that few people would be expected to take? Take it to PM if you're not sure.

Good to see you around ag2000! People come and go in here, as you'd expect. :)

And what happens if you give a man a woman that knows how to shop? Answer: He gets to go places he would never have dreamt of before! ;)

Haha :D. Make my day :)!

Could be the female approach for FT and FD in particular though. Instead of MR or VR (vacation run); flying to GIG for a bikini, getting to NYC for a haircut or MIA for a pedicure and a quick tan.

Guilty as charged :D.

Hi everyone,

Need some help please. Sorry to ask in my very first post!

Been working on LHR - ICN - NRT - LHR on OW for sakura season. Got it down to about Ģ570 with a well-known 1x.

Question is - can it be reduced even further? I've tried a to find a 3x from a long list of ones that had previously worked but no luck.

PS - 'flying' my first tricked fair in a few months :)

"END-ON-END COMBINATIONS NOT PERMITTED WITH DOMESTIC/
INTERNATIONAL FARES."

Are you sure that you are looking at the right fare rules?

brumbrum Jan 9, 15 5:59 am
