QR Business: $USD933 CMB->LHR RT AI Wow!

This is better than what the Y fare is most of the time. Seeing good availability for rest of May at this price as well as June, October, November, December.

Seems to jump back up in January. Get in quick I would suggest and don't shout it out to the world this time. See PDF example attached, good for anyone in Sri Lanka wanting to head home for Christmas too.

Is the CMB-LHR-CMB fare code IJLKP1NE ? If so TRAVEL FROM LAST STOPOVER MUST COMMENCE NO LATER THAN 3 MONTHS AFTER DEPARTURE FROM FARE ORIGIN.

Thinking of seeing if I can take advantage of the OSL-DEL-OSL 222 fare in O (economy) on QR plus some flights DEL-CMB to create myself a couple of mixed class returns.

OSL-DEL econ
DEL-CMB
CMB-LHR biz
few months.
LHR-CMB biz
CMB-DEL
DEL-OSL

Oooh, also need to check that economy O class can be upgraded using QMiles :-)

OSL-DEL maximum 'stay'
Fare code OJHQP7NE
Category 7: Maximum stay requirements
TRAVEL FROM LAST STOPOVER MUST COMMENCE NO LATER THAN 4
MONTHS AFTER DEPARTURE FROM FARE ORIGIN.


Hmmm..... So with OSL-DEL, DEL-OSL needing to be max 4 months apart & CMB-LHR, LHR-CMB being 3 months apart that means I could do one month in CMB & DEL split betrween two trips - if I could find dates which work.

Maybe I'm going bonkers :-)

Would be about 450 return (o/w economy, one way biz) for each trip PLUS the hops between DEL & CMB @ between 100 & 150 each. Hmmmm......

...plus (depending on your passport) you could need two Indian visas, or a multiple entry one: neither option is cheap, but single e-visas can arranged online. I think Sri Lanka gives a free two-day transit visa.

Both QR and EY are offering fares to East Coast for around $2k and West Coast for around $2.5k

Not having any luck with the LHR fare, as it keeps disappearing. Easier to get the $1148 to CDG and many dates with more than one seat.

Thanks mate.
These fares are more or less the norm. Won't be excited if not for another EY F with a missing '0' again.

You can find it on ITA.
On my phone at minute so not able to check dates easily. Its on QR, fare code is OJHQP7NE and there were lots of dates when I looked. 280ish Euro or 3,000ish NOK. use the monthly view in ITA.

I hope this helps.
