I think I kinda found it again using ITA Matrix and then priceline, but it has me on MIA to CDG with ST, then CDG to CMN with OW and about $200 more than when I looked at MIA-LHR-CDG-CMN with Virgin and AF.

Still available to CMN (Casablanca) as of 5:45PM EST. Short layover on the way out. Longer on the way home. But all AF metal. I have a MIA to RAK on hold. What's the better city? Really want to pull the trigger, just curious what we would do in Marrakech/Casablanca/Tangier for a week....with two kids. Suggestions? For this price it's almost worth seeing where we could get in Africa from Morocco.

Probably more to see in RAK. I've only visited RAK, but I booked to CMN. I'm not too impressed with what CMN has to offer, but like I said, I will likely fly to another African city or just hop over to Gran Canaria. I'm also on the same return as you, if you decide to book that.

Just booked for Spring Break. Great deal. I've been wanting to get to Morocco with the kids. There is a story about family travel to Morocco in last month's T+L (or maybe CN Traveler, gotta dig it back out). Cheers!

The times doen't work for me, but anyhow, you can find an itinerary you like on the old ITA Matrix using a search including "DL DL AF" outbound and "AF DL DL" inbound. Comes up about $1095 PHL- Casablanca, and the price goes down a little around $1065 when you use the Powertools to go to Delta.com; this approach still keeps the AF coding on the flights for the Morocco segments, I think the AF flights from Paris to Morocco are about 1200 miles each way, which should increase MQDs a bit if you're in the chase for high status next year.

I couldn't find anything OTAs with AF marketed, ended up booking DL marketed/AF operated so leaving some MQDs and RDMs on the table, but for ~$1,200 across the pond, not a bad deal in today's high priced travel environment!

CMN is quite boring other than the impressive Mosque by the sea, RAK is very vibrant culturally, also this deal is available to RBA which I found to be very interesting with a few things to see. So depend on if you have 2 or 7 days, I say maybe do RBA for shorter trips, RAK for longer trips. Also can do open jaw CMN in RBA out, for example, two are connected with hourly high speed rail.
I have RBA and CMN on my channel linked in signature thanks to the AA F fare, but I have also visited RAK and can highly recommend it for culture buffs. More time can be spent in the Atlas mountains.

Thank you for the info and the OP of this thread. I booked PHL-CMN for $1059/person. It is just a great deal. I do not care of MQM and MQD stuff because I am a UA guy with lifetime 1K status. If one is interested in this deal, delta website is the place to book it. There are many dates with this price (PHL) or higher (CLT, ~$1200).
Happy hunting!

So AF Marketed Gone?

Sounds like the deal still exists Delta marketed but no one is finding it AF marketed? (With my schedule a 7-10 day trip just isnt worth taking if its going to get me the same MQDs as a domestic tripespecially when I need 20k MQDs next year.)

The AF/KL fares are still active, but Z inventory is zeroed out at the moment on pretty much every flight, whether naturally or intentionally. So it's possible they could reopen the inventory buckets, but who knows.

Wife and I pulled the trigger for two tickets via AF for MIA to RAK for approx. $2400.00 for our anniversary in September '23. Booked 1C/1J as we aren't "that couple" who have to sit together. Being over 6'5'' tall, the bulkhead appears to have significantly more room in the footwell (those of you who are tall and/or w/ big feet understand my first world problem) but it is close to the galley. Never a problem in La Premiere (or on most J flights) but wondering if anyone has any reference points. I think we will stay in RAK the majority of the time at Amanjena, but Oberoi, Royal Mansour, Mandarin Oriental and La Mamouina all look good, but the vibe of Amanjena seems to intrigue Mrs. Malibu. Anyone have any reference points as to hotel choice? May day trip to CMN or TNG, just depends on how we feel. Thank you OP for finding this. Have been looking for something new since pre-covid and this really fit the bill.

Very excited to have been able to take advantage of this last week for Phl-dtw-cdg-Rak and return for $1028. 20k Amex offer just deposited too.
A quick public service announcement for the Delta folks who booked an AF ticket looking to earn Skymiles: DO NOT open up this ticket to select a seat or check in on the AF website if youre logged in and have a Flying Blue account. Theres an IT issue, discussed elsewhere on FT, that automatically connects your Flying Blue number to the flight and no matter what you do, the Flying Blue number sticks and the flights credit to AF. I learned this the hard way over the summer when I used the AF app to check in. Despite calling to put my skymiles number back on AND double checking at the ticket counter AND my skymiles number appearing on the boarding pass, it still credited to Flying Blue (thats the IT issue part). Was a massive headache to fix after the flights. So for this one I purchased the ticket and selected seats without logging in and am
skipping the AF app completely when time to travel.

Was able to price out SFO/SJC - CMN/RAK for $1400 on DL, but couldn't get it to checkout and then it repriced to $2500-4000. Ugh.

As soon as I hit the return flight, the price jumped to >$3000 from $1059. The deal is probably gone.
