On ITA matrix it won't let me combine EK class T fare with another airline. Only full fare Y is combinable. I know there must be a way but can't seem to figure it out yet. Any hint?

C2 to several cities in C3 between AUG17 and FEB18 with 1x for 68 EUR all-in return. Anyone found a possible 3x?

Kayak or Momondo can't seem to find any OTA that would combine EK class T fare. Neither would big OTAs like Expedia.

C1e to C3se with NH Spring 2017 ~$300.

Can anyone give me some pointers for this fare rule? I can't seem to figure out what LX's definition of domestic fare is.

END-ON-END
END-ON-END COMBINATIONS PERMITTED WITH DOMESTIC FARES.
VALIDATE ALL FARE COMPONENTS. SIDE TRIPS PERMITTED.

If you are willing to say more, dry table or wet floor or other?

Staring to understand some of the tricks.

C1e focus city - C3se RT 404 AI (likely could be lower). Use 3X.

Hi there,

New to FT and FD. Those experienced in FD, should I look for 3X based on airline hubs?

Try to look for 3X in C3/C6 for flights departing from C1. You won't reach ~100USD fares, but you will getting understand how FD works. Thats really easy.
Ita is your friend.

Managed a ~300 (~14%) saving on a route posted not too long ago C2-C5, but in business. Might not be usefull or a lot, but was just interesting to me it eventually worked in business.
