FARE DEAD: All Alliances: US-Europe in J for ~$2k RT EOS?

Frequent Miler posted about business class tickets in the 2K range from a variety of US destinations (PHL, DFW, DTW, ATL) to London and Paris in J through what appears to be end of schedule. Fare war, so PHL and DFW are on DL/Skyteam, DTW/ATL on AA/BA, PIT-CDG on everyone, you get the idea. Sure there's plenty of searching to be done, but didn't see a thread for this.

The closest I saw on the West Coast is PDX-SFO-LHR RT for $2500 (https://goo.gl/flights/qRhe) on AS/BA

and PHX-ATL/LAX-LHR for $2000 (https://goo.gl/flights/at5Z) on SkyTeam.

I also see ATL-LHR RT on BA for $2000 (https://goo.gl/flights/ljWz). With AARP + CARDOFFERU, does that become ~$1600? Never used those codes before.

Looks like IAH possible on AA, including starting with the short hop to DFW but you can't go from DFW directly.

Also, FRA seems like a destination, and seeing sub-$1900 on AA from ORD among others.

This one is evolving.

Edit: And, poof, IAH-FRA disappeared.

SFO-MAN for $2K on SkyTeam (https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...017-05-16;sc=b). Could be good for EU positioning.

Book on BA credit to AA?

would I make less EQD since it's booking through BA?

Is there anything like the BA AARP or visa discount for AF?

Anyone getting these to price out? Google flights says the RT cost is $1871, but after selecting flights it says to book with american or BA for $3134.

That's a great one, nice find. Not too many connections out of MAN but should be noted there are a lot of flights from LON.

I had ATL-LON priced out with the AARP discount on the BA website about 2 hours ago but hesitated and now everything seems to be evaporating.

Ugh I have a RT J award to FCO from April 29-May 15.

I can't find any of these fares during those dates on OW, or even close dates (looks like the fares start in mid-May), or else I'd cancel the award in a heartbeat for the EQM that I'd earn on AA from this.

I was able to book PHL-ATL-LHR-JFK-PHL for $2021.

Some random observations:

1) Plenty of fares under $2K are still available. Cheapest one I've seen thus far is DFW-BCN for $1,799 on DL/AF/KL. (Interestingly, the AF/KL server seems to be down, but the fare prices out on DL's site.) Also plenty of fare availability out of IAH.

2) A number of routes appear to be selling out quickly. Out of JFK there are only a handful of routings still ~$2K: DUB, LIS, ARN, ORK (!), GOT.

3) Contrary to OP's post, many of the cheapest flights appear to be out of hubs, e.g. DL & ST for ex-ATL flights and AA/BA for JFK. (That said, the DFW-BCN flight is obviously an exception.)

Still looking - and wishing I'd seen this thread a couple hours earlier!
