Different days means different routing. Some days you can get Virgin Atlantic ad Jet, other days Delta and jet and other days KLM and Delta. I prefer VA and Jet or Delta and Jet personally. KLM and Jet would be next. Last would be AF or AF and Jet. Can't stand the hard product or soft product (especially the soft product) on AF.

Well, considering business "deals" out of ATL are a complete joke, and the US in general (compared to Europe and Asia), it's nice to see this as an option. Thanks!

I so agree with that. I get so tired of logging on here and seeing another ultra cheap flight out of Stockholm. I mean, come on! They make twice what we do yet their Biz class flights are 40% less when on a deal! Geez.

And yeah, Atlanta is horrible (especially of course with Delta or Sky Team) getting any deals in Biz. I posted a $1670 Biz class deal on United from ATL-ATH --2 days ago and today it's completely gone. So when they do come, they're very short lived.

:-(

Thank you for the post. It is an excellent price especially from Atlanta. When you say soft product what exactly you mean? The seats are soft in AF?

Soft doesn't mean softness, take a read here which explains hard product vs. soft product:

It's now even cheaper. ATL-BOM for as low as $2,360 - https://goo.gl/flights/oHPH

QR is matching too - https://goo.gl/flights/fGHW

edit: free stopovers allowed in LHR in both directions, but expect to pay APD.

Sorry, I should have been more clear: I know of the 1.5 EQM and the 20% EQD, but I was curious if anyone had an actual calculation, as I wasn't sure.

Based on what I could find:

ATL-DOH: 7454 flown
DOH-BOM: 1428 flown

x2 x1.50 = 26,646 EQM

x 0.20 (showing as an R fare) = 3553 EQD

Not bad, but looks like flying CX from YVR-HKG-AKL in PE will net me a better EQD return.

Mumbai is an interesting place to visit; I'd love to go back. The Intercontinental was stupid cheap there.

I know. I think I saw the initials ARN in a dream one time. It was weird.

Sadly I have almost no interest in Europe in general, and even less in Northern Europe.

Wow, that is the cheapest I've ever seen it from Atlanta! I'm buying!

Did you stay at the Intercontinental on Marine Dr? Such a nice hotel and great food. Love the welcome massage you're offered there!

I also enjoy staying at the Renaissance up by Powai Lake. Nice rooms and sick executive lounge!

I did stay at the one way down on Marine Drive. I even used their Mercedes service from the airport which was entirely reasonable (although stupid expensive for India).

I loved being close to the train station and the famous market area.

I got a really nice room and I loved the breakfast there.

I'd go back just to stay there again.

Nowadays i usually stay up on Powai Lake...at the Renaissance. For some reason it books at a Category 2 point rate. Weird. 4-5 star hotel booking at category 2. I get like 5 nights of hotel for like 40,000 points! And the service there is great, especially at the Executive Lounge on the top floor. Free cocktail hour from like 5:30-9:00!

This sound awesome! Was trying to search for something slightly different in Google flights but can't get the calendar process to display on the stopover itineraries. Can anyone help?

Looking for:
-Atlanta to bom mid March 2018
-bom to London or preferable ams end March
- return to ATL mid April

The mid 2k fare sounds too good to be true!

And you get $150 off for taking their Gold card with free one year membership. Just need to buy one thing on it to get the $150. Then can close it and cancel once paid. That's what I did. Got my ticket for $2210. :-)

Like the other poster said: if you stopover in LHR be prepared to pay a hefty luxury tax for that seat. It's no joke.
