Do not call the airlines under any conditions! This is the fastest way to kill the trick and bring unwanted attention to your itinerary! And do not post precious deals in this thread, this is by far the fastest way to kill the trick!



************************************************** ******
This is NOT the right place to ask: "Can you help me with a low fare for AAA-BBB?" This is not the beg-it thread, but the trick-it thread.

This thread deals with unique combinations of routes and booking tricks in order to lower prices on airline fares. Prices that would astound the general public are often achieved by the posters in this thread.

Many people, including airline representatives, monitor this thread. For that reason, it is unorganized, very content heavy, often lacking details, and written in shorthand. It takes patience and effort in order to understand the conversation and be able to participate as an active member.

We encourage you to read the entirety of this thread if you would like to get started and to experiment as soon as you understand the gist of Trick It. Lots of time spent reading, practicing, and learning is the only way to be able to reproduce our tricks and discover new ones yourself. There are many, many people who ask for advice here, so productive members are only able to help those who have shown a concerted effort and progress over a long period of time (months).

If you have no idea what this thread is about, a good place to start are various blogs' posts on the subject. At the very least, read the Rules for posting in this thread. They're also listed in the very first post, below.

C1-C3

GF says this route usually costs $10,000+ rt in J, but thanks to a good fare on which all fat can be removed, Americans can fly it for just $1,5xx. Might be possible to reduce another $150 or so.

You can't really get away from death and taxes.

Yet I still can't even understand a single word game here.
Well it's not the very best...but maybe it is a fd. you tell me. the YR completely disappeared. It isn't showing on the price breakdown at all. Is that normal for fd ? But the x3 is very high F
i tried f bc=z|y|o|w it doesnt work. any help ? the net decreased was only about $600. Damn you F class. Does it mean if it works for F, it should work for Economy on that route for strike candidate ?

New to matrix, just started playing a few weeks ago. any advice and tips, much appreciated

I'm trying the C1-C2 r/t in Y. Perhaps a different fare than what was already posted above. Can anyone please confirm if I can do better than C$ 273.36 using 3x?

I think 167 usd. But I think, that the deal is going to be killed, soon (also because of the posts like yours, really...).

Thanks for the comment, but your snarky comment at the end is totally unnecessary. If you think my post gives too much information then say so, which btw I don't think I gave too many details.

I am absolutely certain that you have posted too many details. C1-C2 and your price would be more than enough.
There are unfotunately other factors making this deal close to be killed (I wish I am wrong).
