Great find. I wonder why the screenshot shows mixed seats. This sample pricing with a j fare and a hostel dorm makes me giggling, since I've done something similar to that. I ll definitely look into further.

It seems like the dates are finicky for this deal. OP Gave 11/27-12/10. I was able to extend up to 12/27 for the same price.You also should be able to depart into early December for $1600.

Iím trying to book AF before AS ends the partnership. I tried multiple dates and could get it down to like $1700-$1800 for early April.

Also deal seems to be good to other west coast cities like LAX. Cannot find total AF for the return to SEA

Has anyone been able to find other destinations besides AMM? This is a terrific deal.

This is fascinating to me. Youre binging a $4k ticket down to $1800 WITH (albeit cra pay) hotel.

Just out of curiosity OP how did you find this?

Airlines often offer lower J fares to vacation packages. It lets them fill unsold seats in the premium cabin while not cannibalizing revenue from business travelers, who rarely book using vacation package deals because their company usually has negotiated car and hotel rates they are required to use.

All thatís nice and make sense. But how do you find deals using these packages? You cannot search every single combination of cities known to Man.

So it is just when you stumble upon one? How often are these for sale?

To be perfectly honest, there are many deals out there using package options. Flight+hotel, Flight+car, etc. We've seen this with AAVacations, as documented extensively on other threads.

There is no point in trying to list all of city pairs that save at least $x here... I'm hoping this place won't be flooded with every single possible combination that saves some kind of money.

Just be creative and check the occasional destination you want to go.
Keep in mind the famous quote -- With great savings comes great responsibility.. figure out what works for you and, if you must, share it among trusted friends. Any of these deals can be killed with a simple rule -- for example, there's nothing keeping the hotel from notifying the OTA that you didn't show up. Orbitz/expedia can easily impose a $500 penalty for no-shows if people tend to abuse things.

If you scroll down through this board, you'll see a recent thread on Orbitz and Expedia package deals. There's been a lot of this the past few weeks, mostly on Skyteam partners, but others as well.

As far as how you find it: I pretty much know when I'll be available for trips. So I just check regularly, all kinds of options, Google Flights, packages, whatever. It's a hobby. There's no real trick to it--you just have to enjoy prowling around and looking for random bargains.

Also this package seems to be only available on travelocity and not on any of their partner websites which are all owned by the same people.

I came here to ask this question since they're all owned by Expedia -- interesting it's Travelocity only.

For the LAX-FCO thread and the SFO-BOM/DEL thread, the same deals are available on orbitz and xp.
