FZ - SPX-BEY - $17 one-way - Business - Kiwi Junk?

If anybody is feeling bold and brave, Kiwi is selling one-way flights from Giza, Egypt (SPX) to Beirut, Lebanon (BEY) via Dubai (DXB) for $17 on some dates flying flydubai in business. As always with Kiwi, you never really know what you're going to get!

I don't usually use the Kiwi API to find flights, but I thought I'd check their API to see if it would at least give me the fare code and it won't! That field is empty in the result (see below).

I agree! I'd like to buy it just to see what I get. At that price, there isn't much to lose!

There is one other flydubai mistake they are selling. Delhi (DEL) to Warsaw (WAW) - $468 one-way, but this one isn't exactly chump change!

Haha! Thanks for being a guinea pig!! If 1 is good, then 2 is better!

Kiwi will sometimes re-price on the last page of the booking process, but this one isn't re-pricing.

Not yet, I have 0 hopes, but for this price, I won't mind.

Have to get back to MENA during Aug so I was like let's give it a shot.

Can get some cheap flights to CAI from NA.
