They may not be coming back as apparently SV are refurbishing the A320 fleet with proper business class seats...

my understanding was that they were offering heavily reduced fares on sub-par product, but I'd love to be proven wrong and see these FCO/MXP-CGK fares back...

Is this cheap? I don't think so.

Normally I'd look for tk to be closer to 2.5k SGD so 1.9k USD for it to be attractive. You can go cgk to mxp for 2k SGD right now via muscat...

do you even know what we are talking about this fare is from Europe to Asia not as you said from
Asia to Europe
it is all different
Do you know you can buy Europe to NZ for 2000 to 3000 USD but from NZ to Europe way over 4000$
so directions make diffrence and this TK fare is the cheapest at the moment TO CGK
NOT FROM CGK

Maybe it's a cheap far for Rome. But for Europe it's on the high side of run-of-the-mill.

without even trying, and for the same date the op used, I find:
Etihad from Milan, Lufthana+OmanAir from Amsterdam all for around $2000.
Oslo on Qatar for $1920

And of course there's the current One World favourite - Sri Lankan business-class from Abu Dhabi. Add on economy class positioning fights from europe to UAE and Jakarta is yours for around $1000

Just go to CAI, you can get to CGK for 1,000 EUR R/T, same for DPS on the brand new 787!

It's not difficult, but Cairo adds considerably to positioning costs from most of europe. Mitigating the risk of misconnects, and coping with inconvenient schedules mean that longer connections are preferred and these could entail visas and overnight stops.

There are entire threads devoted to the intricacies of Cairo connections. I've spent a lot of time there, so Cairo origin flights are occasionally useful to me. I'd suggest they are great if you want to work a visit to Egypt into your trip: if not, think carefully about the additional costs of positioning and managing risks.

There are similar TK fares from other Egyptian airports.
