Ba/aa: Cai-lhr-jfk-bos, iad-lhr-cai $1396 usd

First post here- I just booked the following business class ticket, Sept 4th to May 31st for $1396 on Expedia. I chose the longer, slightly more expensive route going through NYC for more miles. Based on my search, it looks like many more combinations/dates are available in the same price range. Good luck!

Also available to ORD and DFW and JFK for less. Seems like pretty standard prices ex CAI. There was a time when QR went for less.

This will likely get merged with the other CAI-LHR-XXX thread in short order.

Some of your "low" "pretty standard prices ex CAI" (i.e. JFK, ORD, and DFW) are all currently unavailable. It's therefore very helpful to have others note that the BOS and IAD fares remain loaded.

Fare is definitely available for lower than $1396 to ORD. https://www.google.com/flights/#flt=CAI.ORD.2017-11-21.CAILHR0BA154~LHRORD0BA297*ORD.CAI.2017-11-28.ORDPHL0AA2562~PHLFCO0AA718~FCOCAI1AZ896;c:USD;e :1;sc:b;sd:1;t:f;sp:.USD.121075*.USD.121075

Also available to JFK for less than $1396. https://www.google.com/flights/#flt=CAI./m/02_286.2017-11-21.CAIJFK0MS985*/m/02_286.CAI.2017-11-28.JFKCAI0MS986;c:USD;e:1;sc:b;sd:1;t:f;sp:.USD.13 6919*.USD.136919

Or you could pay slightly more to fly with SkyTeam carriers. Just because some fares do not show up on Expedia doesn't mean that they're unavailable.

Didn't AA eliminate EY + AR codesharing?

It books into W class if you fly AA coded EY flights, even if you're in business.

This may confuse people. The right way to say this is

1) EY coded flights - booking class W required (ie CAI-EY-AUH-EY-PAR), W is lowest business on EY, not economy or premium economy
2) AA coded flights operated by EY - follows general rules for AA coded flights, ie normally I, or better classes withiin Europe and USA/ North America:

BOOKING CODE EXCEPTIONS
