Reverse sale (2 weekends in Paris) has not popped yet, but based on recent history, gets as low as $600 also.

That's a great fare. Lowest I've ever seen. According to the forum rules please post the fare in the title without the discount.

I believe this is in response to La Compagnie offering EWR-CDG for $1300 r/t.

The soft product is closer to J than PE, the hard product is definitely economy on the other hand. The day flight should be very comfortable, the night one not so much.

This starts working around Thanksgiving, not available for Christmas. Hard to plan.

Interested in this but there's a bit of confusion regarding the equipment being used. It looks like from the link to the 767 picture, it is actually a 757 aircraft. Also, based on this article:

https://runwaygirlnetwork.com/2016/0...xex-questions/

It looks like there may be a completely different class than "prem plus" as referenced in the post. Perhaps in this case, one should try for the 757?

I checked out some of the $712 dates using Avios for reward flights in PE and also using Avios to upgrade on paid into PE. The straight Avios RT was 52k plus almost $700 in fees and taxes. The upgrade with Avios paying cash in Econ and upgraded used 26k Avios and cost $818 Typical BA
