Seeing a lot of availability - looks like a match to the DL fare previous threads had.

Looks like its valid through at least May 2018.

And then, it is on Bloody Awful, where you will be crammed like sardines even in Business Class? And oh yes, and half of you will be facing the wrong way. And then you have to deal with Heathrow. No thank you.

Quite a good TP run:
PRG-CLT (via LHR,IAD)
CLT-SFO (Direct)
SFO-CLT (via LAX)
CLT-PRG (via JFK,LHR)

If I am correct 780 TP for $1800. Looks fine....

I've done this route on BA over 10 times. If you get an upper deck A380 window seat it's quite a nice private experience once the separator is up. At Heathrow you have take a bus between T3 and T5 which isn't ideal but I haven't had a problem.

I don't think anybody in the premium fare deals forum is interested in your assessment of BA business class or your experience at LHR, there are other more appropriate threads to discuss your opinion.

This fare is available on a number of airlines which may have a business class seat that others prefer, and there are plenty of people that enjoy J on the BA, and many other people that are able to use miles to upgrade to F on this fare.

Furthermore, it is entirely possible on this fare to avoid LHR if people don't like LHR. But, those that want to "get off" at LHR on the way back may very well prefer to route through LHR.

Sounds like United with their bizarre 777-200 business class in 2x4x2 with half the seats facing the wrong way. I cringe at the idea of paying a business class fare for those, or redeeming even at saver rates.

Then take the price matched Air France/Delta flights on this route.

You can get it onto AA metal for the TATL leg if you'd prefer that.

Is anyone with EF access able to tell us if there are other possible origins or destinations? Fare code for AA is ILN8R4Z1.

Sorry if this is a newbie question, but if crediting to AA will this earn at the BA rates (25%)? I know if booked on AA.com it quotes the AA earning rates, but perhaps if booked through an aggregator that would make a difference or no?

_ Never mind I see some dates are bookable through BA _
