So that's like $1150 per person RT for CMB-JFK. This route continues to deliver. But 3 month max stay provision that is generally on the sub $1700 fares here.
Just looked and EY has matched QR on this, about $1180 RT CMB-JFK, similar restrictions.

Does the outbound flight must be done from CMB?
Does it work from Europe to Asia?

Thanks

Well, yeah, otherwise you would have a different set of origin and destination and the ticket would price according to those. At most you could ditch the last segment back to CMB if you didnt have luggage checked.

This thread is about CMB fares, so no it wont work for ex-EU flights. There are discussions of some good EU-Asia fares in other threads, have a look at them.

EY does have a similar price, I wonder if that qualifies for the 4x miles promotion too.

Niether EY nor QR seem to have opened lots of inventory at these rates in the near term, you have to use ITA to locate and you'll see plenty from Sept 10 onward. Constrain ITA search to QR+ and you'll see every day in Sept, Oct at least.

QR has sales almost every other week. That's the reason I created this thread http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/premi...e-fares-5.html

We don't need a new thread every time QR has a sale; the first page would be full of QR fares.

As does EY it seems. But the CMB fares this poster highlighted aren't that regular, or at least it seems like its been a month or two since they dipped below $1500 down to $1200ish. I actually started a CMB thread once to try to focus on the sub $150o ones, but alas everyone started new threads...

Via ITA they are available starting today, but they are not bookable via QR.com or any OTA.

Good question. How many miles does one earn on this fare on QR and EY ?

Postioning is a probem, I am originally from BOM.

Where did you find it for $4,200? Lowest I am finding on EY.com is $6k+.
