How to find fare "buy one get one free"?

Im trying to find flights with TG in august from ARN, CPH or FRA to BKK in biz class that qualify for the "buy one get one free" campaign. Seems like FRA is about 2014 +tax but I cant find any of these fares that shows that the second person is free. Any clues on how to find em? Best for us would be ARN.

The 2-for-1 fares are not available for on-line purchase. However, to see the fare for one that is eligible, price an unreestricted ticket. Discounted tickets are not the fare basis that is used for the 2-for-1 fares.

Two for one is not valid ex Scandinavia.

FRA-BKK for 2014 is probably not Full fare C. Its probably booked in D which means that you cant use that fare.

If you would like to get a good price I would suggest checking CMB-BKK-LAX

CMB-BKK-LAX is a great published fare at about $1,400 in business, but I have been unsuccessful in actually booking that fare on that route. All I can get is about $2,700.00.

The "unrestricted" TG C-class fare from FRA is EUR4209.

Why not use LH or SK or OS - and start in LHR?

Around EUR1800+taxes / person.

Or EUR 1580 + taxes LH ATH-FRA-BKK-FRA-ATH in Business. No discount for spouse/2nd person though.


From: Frankfurt, Germany (FRA-Frankfurt Intl.)
To: Bangkok, Thailand (BKK-Bangkok Intl.)

$1400 is a great price, but ARN/CPH-CMB is not that great, best price I found was 6835SEK with CSA.
