Fare looks nice, but it appears to require a 30 day stay. When I try anything shorter on the AF www site, the return fares go up about USD300.
Also, outbounds I look at require a 620 am departure from LHR with a 4 hour layover at CDG. And the AF www site shows the old 777 with 2-3-2 seating.
And--AF www site shows booking class O, no earnings on DL.

An example of 20 days stay, pretty pristine lie-flats and perfect layovers below ; DL madness, I can't fix:

IMHO, compares pretty favorably, in terms of ease of positioning, comfort and timing to many ST deals...

you can also find connections on OTAs that go via AMS and CDG for earning maximum XP (130)

so this fare would get 60% MQD correct (roughly ~$8k)? Trying to possibly hit diamond this year but would have to do it flying partners for for the MQD portion of status

Can all this be booked on non AFKL stock and flight numbers? (To get distance miles in FB)

For earning on Delta, looks like it books into an "O" class, which earns zero MQM's - I could be wrong, and may be missing something??

(It's a good fare for travel, to be sure,'tho, if one is not "needing" to earn miles towards future travel, status, etc).

Yes, be warned. O fares earn nothing on many other Skyteam programs! (They do earn - albeit on revenue basis, and therefore very little - in FB)

Indeed - a cursory look at wheretocredit, seems that's quite true.

It's a good fair for travelling comfortably to Asia, for sure, 'tho.

Unless there have been changes to partner earning, J, C, D, I, Z, R all earn 40%
