    Air Canada to Montreal changing to Brussels Air.

    Similar rates from most US cities (examples: DCA $262, LAX $282 ai RT)

    Mostly Feb./March but some April/May for @ $100 more.

    If you book through Vayama and credit the flight to CO is it 100% eqm? How do I find the fare code for this particular itinerary?

    I'm looking to credit to UA/CO as well. Any idea on how to verify how many EQMS/RDMS we would get?

    It's all Air Canada, it's just Brussels Air Coded, but its Operated by Air Canada so 100% mileage

    I'm also interested in booking...but I can't find the fare code or more details. I'd also want to credit to UA/CO. Anyone finding anything &/or already booked who can shed light on RDM/EQM crediting to UA/CO?

    ...sorry didn't refresh and just saw zabes post. I think I'm going to book.

    I can confirm it books into L

    Edited to add: That is the fare class that shows when I pull up my reservation at aircanada.com.

    Shouldn't matter much since all TATL AC fares qualify for 100% EQM/RDM or better.

    I'm going March 16-18 via YUL, with a 10 hour layover on the outbound to head into town and cause some trouble. Got it at $350. Annoying that Vayama has a $70 ticketing fee but that is way better than the $440 YQ so I guess I cannot complain too much. :oops:

    I spotted dates on ITA looking for the $697 fares on 1-2 night stays and then those mapped 1:1 as available on Vayama when I searched for flights.

    Also, make sure you're using a referral link for Vayama bookings. They pay pretty well. If you don't have one PM me and I'll send you mine.

    Couple of dates that I had seen the low fares on earlier are showing high $600's now. I think the low fares are either selling out or they caught the mistake. Too bad my next couple of months were already too full and I couldn't take advantage. Congrats to those who were able to.

    I actually saw this sale last week too. I posted about it on m blog! Too bad nobody reads it ;).

    I guess it is a recurring error.

    Missed it that time and this time. Damn. I cant find anything other than OP original dates.

    Any luck for dates in March?

    To correct myself, I guess it could still earn you only 0% on the North America legs (from IAH/NYC/etc to YYZ/YUL) if it were a deep-discount fare class. But if it is L, then you're probably safe.

    AC codeshares are often good for deals, mistakes or otherwise. Too bad they charge an arm and a leg if you only want to go to Canada. Why can I fly from SEA to ORD for $250 but from SEA to YYZ for $500?

    Are you saying you were able to search ITA for a parallel fare then searched for it on Vayama and it was at the lower price?

    How did you know they matched up?

    Also does anybody else have links for when they signed up? Searched Kayak for diff dates because the OP link still takes you too $232 even though refreshing the search gets you the $672.

    Shot in the dark but it might work. Gracias.

    I went to Brussels at the end of last January from JFK on Iberia for $308.26. I wonder if sales or mistake fares to Brussels occur around this time yearly...

    This is long gone, but the reasoning behind this was that Vayama wasn't charging YQ (fuel surcharge) - base fare was the same no matter where you looked.
