DL: CMB-JFK/BOS RT Business Class - USD 1660

Routing is CMB-BOM-LHR-JFK.

All flights available as DL flight numbers.
Potentially useful to DL/Skyteam members.

CMB-BOM & BOM-LHR operated by 9W. LHR-JFK operated by DL.

CMB-BOM = 73H
BOM-LHR = 77W
LHR-JFK = 764

Variations of this fare through other Skyteam hubs (CDG/AMS) also available on certain dates, 9W operates to both CDG & AMS.

BOS is also available.

Not easily shown on Google Flights/ITA, but bookable on DL site.

Do 9W flights earn MQMs?

If you google'd, you'd know this too. You don't even need DL #s .

The flights are all Delta marketed (DL flight numbers), so will earn 150% MQMs.

There is usually a fare like this from KLM on the same route and it is indeed still there. It is a routing based fare, and it has a few dozen specified readings that can be utilized. The delta fare by contrast is an MPM fare, and it has surprisingly few flight restrictions (although it does have some transfer restrictions that could limit significantly what you could do). So I suspect you could probably route a whole bunch of ways beyond just thru BOM or DEL via 9W. The delta fair has a 12 month maximum stay, which is pretty nice because most columbo fairs in this price range tend to be three months max.

With a bit of advance planning this fare might be a real treasure.

Category 8: Stopover restrictions
UNLIMITED FREE STOPOVERS PERMITTED.

But you would pay lots for any stopover due to HIP check.

HIP/MILEAGE EXCEPTIONS NO HIP OR MILEAGE EXCEPTIONS APPLY./

I don't think so. I would pay only higher airport and mandatory fees and taxes (APD namely), since what I'm looking at is making stopovers along the most direct route offered by DL where Z available on every single flight, particularly:

Outbound
CMB-BOM
BOM-LHR
stopover
LHR-JFK (+++ extra fees)

Inbound
JFK-LHR
stopover
LHR-BOM (+++ extra fees)
BOM-CMB

The worst in this fare is transiting via BOM. I've heard it's absolutely terrible and miserable experience.

Its an IATA driven exception (driven in its turn by some regulations) that Indian subcontinent to US may have stopovers in Europe and that stopover points will not trigger HIP repricing.

This I did not know. And having flown lots of ex-CMB fares I am surprised to learn something new, although my fares are usually via Pacific and so this wouldnt apply.

Stopover in LHR gets you APD though right?

Yep. If it's more than 24 hours you gotta pay APD, departure fees are also marginally higher than those for connecting pax.

The transit in BOM is clunky, but it's certainly no reason not to take advantage of the fare. It's a very modern airport - you stop at the transit desk and they act like you're the first person ever to do something as exotic as transfer, but after they call your airline to make sure you're "accepted" onto the flight (literally), and hand write into an old ledger your details (yes really), and place a few stamps on your boarding pass, you process through transit security just like anywhere else, right into the departures hall.

The GVK lounges in BOM (assuming you're business/first class/status) are really excellent, by the way.

DL CMB-JFK/BOS $1660 r/t

Book on DL website. Books as Business Flex Z class

Plenty of availability March/April .

One way from CMB $1120

I have been trying to book a one way with a stopover in London , but I cant get it to price as a multi-city booking.

So if anyone can get it to book with a stopover please let me know.
