LHR-EZE Cheap Swiss Fares (516 C CLass)

Hello,

Yesterday on Swiss.com, booked three C Class tickets LHR-ZRH-EZE in April for a mere 516 a seat. (Yes there is no zero missing). I know of two other people including the person who noticed it first who have done the same. Obviously believed it is a mistake and was expecting to be contacted today and told that Swiss will NOT honour it. Think about this, same dates/class from ZRH comes to 5000, same dates/class from DUB to 6000 and same route/dates/Y Class: to 1700 (3.5 times more than C). No telephone call/email today, this information was posted in the Swissair Group where an employee claimed it was no mistake and surprise surprise, the fare is still there this evening!!!

And example:

LX 465 SWISS London (LCY) Zurich 17:30 / 15APR 20:10 / 15APR
LX 094 SWISS Zurich Buenos Aires (EZE) 22:15 / 15APR 08:40 / 16APR
LX 095 SWISS Buenos Aires (EZE) Zurich 10:35 / 25APR 06:20 / 26APR
LX 450 SWISS Zurich London (LCY) 07:00 / 26APR 07:40 / 26APR

---------------------------------------

Below you will find the Business Class fare for the flights you selected.

Adults 234.00 GBP 325.65 GBP 1 325.65 GBP 518.80 EUR
Sum total 325.65 GBP 518.80 EUR

6 Flights in Business, over 25,000 miles counting towards status for 516 is one of the best ever deals.

Thanks for the great tip. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif I just booked 3 tickets. And one trip is for November of this year. Now if I could only upgrade. But after a couple of trips I guess I will become a Travel Club member.
