Looks like Lufthansa and British Airways are really breathing down Air France's neck these days...

https://www.google.com/flights?lite=...;sc:f;sd:1;t:f

Sadly when I click the suggested times it reprices and lists it at over $13,000. That being said there seems to be wide open availability listed on flights for the Fall for this itinerary, I suppose it's a matter of seeing what dates are still available at this competitive rate. Needless to say, when a major airline launches a price war in F savvy travellers take notice.

Safe Travels,

James

Beware that only the first sector is First - the rest is in Economy.

Yeah - looks like it's about $7k for IAD-CDG-DXB in J and DXB-CDG-JFK in F. Bummer.

Flights is showing me first all the way until the last US domestic sector (which is in economy):




Challenge is determining whether there exists any dates where this will ticket at the price flights suggests.

How about the one you linked to in your first post?

Also - bear this in mind if you even get the tickets to issue in all F at these prices:

{Fare Gone} Air France : IST - SJO $2,341 First Class$2,639 RT (mixed Business)
[PREM FARE GONE] AF Business Class LAX - LHR $1515

I would not trust any F offers or deals on Air France... What you think is a good deal in F turns out to be a pretty expensive deal in Y...
irishguy28 and palmanfr like this.

It always depends on how many tickets are booked. If they only sell a couple of tickets, it's not worth the hassle for them.
In this case, i can't price the itinerary... Seems like a phantom fare.
