AC: LAX-BCN $998 in PE

Didn't see this one posted yet, thought I would share:



I put these dates in for September, but looks like there are plenty of seats for other months.

Regular economy LAX-YUL, premium economy YUL-BCN

Yes, it's Rouge, but still pretty darn good deal.

I've only flown Rogue ( ) on YYC-LAS, and the legroom was HORRIBLE. Great price, but LAX-YUL is a LOOOOONG way for a VERY cramped seat.

Hopefully someone will find this useful, so thanks for posting.

You can avoid rouge by adding another stop (or 2), also can pick up a ton more miles which is handy for people looking for those. You can also route through YVR too, which will give much more PE

LAX-YYZ-FCO-FRA/MUC/ZRH-BCN will net a ton more miles and avoid rouge, for example

I was able to find routings on LH/OS as well. Not sure how you guys are routing through YVR though (multicity?) -- can anyone provide Google Flights link?

The LAX-YUL leg is not Rouge; it is mainline AC in regular economy. The YUL-BCN leg is in Rouge, but in Premium Economy.

You can get UA PE on their new 787-10 for every leg for the same price.

Great fare but..... clearly whoever wrote this PR piece for AC was paid and had no idea what J class is like. This is a long way from being Business Class on AC which is exceptional.

Rouge Premium is not even up to the domestic AC business class standards. Rouge is for those that might fly once a year on a vacation. It is not for the frequent flyer and yet AC is forcing it upon so many markets esp within Canada, like YYJ, YQM, YSJ, YFC, etc.

To be fair, I think the only favorable comparison to J is the liquor on order, an it's not compared to AC J. Otherwise, it specifically states this is not to be compared with business class.

It is a Premium Economy product, not a Biz Class product, and was originally posted here as such. No one is ever going to confuse Rouge Premium for Biz Class.
