DL/KL/AF NYC-BCN $75 each way, but >$400 YQ. Can't spring even the smallest leak... Any suggestions?

I couldn't believe my eyes, but my first try: € 247 rt a.i. non stop, with 3x.
Just keep searching and the reward will be there!

Wow! I could've bet that DL's T class

END-ON-END
END-ON-END COMBINATIONS PERMITTED. VALIDATE ALL FARE
COMBINATIONS.
PROVIDED -
COMBINATIONS ARE FOR CARRIER KL/AF/AZ/OK/DL
OR FOR CARRIER AS/QX.

wouldn't allow 3X. I am guessing your ST member is not DL.

The Frenchy seems to "given" into rule breaking much easier but not as low as € 276, but I just tried a few.

True! But I don't think I am going to spend more time on this 🙂 I don't travel on ST, am very loyal to OW.

Nevertheless, I'm rooting for you, hopefully you can get it under 200!!!

Anyone could help me bringing down this one ?

This is scary. I got it down to € 272 rt a.i. with a 3x. It might no be the same fare though. Basefare € 69 each way. Before the 3x there wasn't a YQ, but a YR of € 320.
In between bringing Tapas to Mao you have 5 hours to drink a Heineken. After that you will have 4-star noodles. Going back it is 3-star all the way. Not much time to drink another Heineken.

I noticed that AA has a matching base, I am guessing it was filed yesterday:

AA OLXQ2 NYC to BCN $75
AA OLXQ2 BCN to NYC $75
AA YQ $420

PERMITTED 08NOV 11 THROUGH 16DEC 11 OR 25DEC 11 THROUGH
01APR 12 ON THE OUTBOUND TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.

Hints on the 3X? The specific routing details you gave aren't important on this, as connection times and operating carriers will vary based on the actual days you're looking at. This fare isn't terribly appealing because of the minimum stay, but I'm trying to hone my skills.

I'll also throw out there that a little orange juice with pasta can get sub $500 a/i for Mao. Tapas on one end with room for optimization on the other. Having a Staropramen before your first flight gives $443.30 a/i. Swap the Staropramen for a baguette and you're around $471.

There are several NYC-BCN fares filed with rt base of $150 with YQYR of $440. I've been reading like crazy trying to figure out how to dump most/all of the YQ on *A, but no luck so far. Will be curious to hear if others are having success.

I'm able to get rid of about half of the YQ, but my 3x adds it nearly all back, only saving $50.

It is easier to trick:

BA OLXQ2 NYC to BCN $75
BA OLXQ2 BCN to NYC $75
BA YQ $424

Isn't that 3x called "The newberry express"?
