AZ: AMS-MOW in J for 435 RT (BRU, DUS and others departure possible as well)

Transfer: FCO, MXP/LIN
I'm booking it for the second time this summer (last time a month ago). Thought it was an error fare, but it doesn't seem to be so since it's still available.
The nicest thing is the Italy(FCO/MXP) to SVO sector (and back): you can opt for a SU-operated flight which has a proper hard J product with 2-2 configuration and excellent service.
Even though AZ service on AMS-FCO sector normally sucks their lasagna is delicious! So the whole trip worths it.
Books in D which gives 200% miles in Flying Blue (the FFP I use, check for yourself about Delta, etc.).

For me, a Russian expat in Amsterdam is just freaking perfect.

Given *A is even cheaper on this route, can't see how it could have been thought of as EF...

OK's P class is a deep discount economy, and actually doesn't earn any miles on most programs

No other airline except SU can offer even similar business product, as far as I recall. And All ST competitors definitely don't.
Also, AZ economy is less than €100 cheaper.

Example I booked here: https://www.kayak.nl/flights/AMS-SVO...2230|1315,1604

But there is wide availability on lost of dates / months. You can search in Matrix with routing codes AZ O:SU / O:SU AZ

Would do it if last leg could be operated by SU. Don't think it can. Once flown OK business in Europe, wasn't impressed.

I do not necessarily disagree (at least on AMS-MOW route, obviously, there are other european routes that are even served by wide-bodies), was just merely pointing at the fact that this route often sees sub 140EUR fares in economy, so >400EUR in business wouldn't make me think of EF.
If you are a fan of SU, you might want to look at some MU's fares from MOW to South-East Asia, that allow to be flown on SU metal, given the price that's quite a value.

This airline continues to push last bolts to its coffin
They have never been strong in fare filing though

I guess to American eyes this looks like a "mistake" fare, but it seems to be a pretty standard for an indirect shorthaul business ticket, at least on this route.

You can travel for as little as €319 return via PRG, or for just €279 from BRU. Those prices can be brought down further by adding longer layovers in Prague.

You could even leave this weekend on Lufthansa and pay just €425.

Lowest pre-tax AZ fare for ROM-MOW RT is USD 520 for AZ metal, but the one that allows SU metal is not lower than USD 2,175 (fares ending with '4'). That's the point.

This is standard ex PRG LH fare - available for ages I used it in the past to get to Istanbul, Mallorca, etc.. Ex PRG is also nice availability of LX routed through Zurich..

I typically use it when the monkey class fare is around 300e (welcome in Prague, the base airport of the world worst & most expensive & dirtiest airline - Travel Servis)..
