    While we all discuss if premium fares need a sub-forum or not I think it will be good to start posting some. (If already exists mods please move this post)
    This is a very good one on SQ 77W business. Only airline to fly this route non-stop... and in style on course!

    GRU-BCN round trip 3.260$ all in.

    Books in J (EOS). Refundable for a fee (100$).
    Cheers!

    LAN business class SFO-UIO, base is $405 ow. SFO-LIM-UIO is around $910, but LIM-UIO is in premium coach on a 319. Unlimited stopovers allowed, 3 day min stay. Ticket by Mar 14th, fly by Apr 30th. I looked up the routing info:

    Code:
     1. SFO-AA-MIA-LA-CCS-LA-GYE-XL-UIO
     2. SFO-AA-MIA-XL-UIO
     3. SFO-LA-LIM-LA-UIO
     4. SFO-US-CLT-US-MIA-LA-CCS-LA-GYE-XL-UIO
     5. SFO-US-CLT-US-MIA-XL-UIO
    
    This has great potential given the unlimited free stopovers (though I did not try to price any itinerary).

    This is probably in response to AA's South America J sale, so I'd keep an eye open for other city pairs. Have a look at http://www.farecompare.com/search/yupfares.html for your home airport (make sure to include Central America/South America/Carribean).

    This is a good excuse to bump this thread. [​IMG]
    Playing with the MIA-LON fare I've founded what in my opinion is the best route on this deal (if you credit to *A)

    MIA-YYZ-LHR (AC metal)
    LHR-IAD-MIA (UA metal)
    1278$ RT ai

    Also
    BOS-YYZ-LHR
    LHR-YYZ-BOS
    1240$ RT ai

    UA: SJU to SAN

    UA has a decent 469++ or $499 a.i fare.. it's an A fare, which when credited to BD, A3 or LH will credit at 300%. :)

    Here's an interesting routing SJU-IAD-BOS-SFO-SAN
    Dates: Most of April and May
    3.04 CPM for paid First (600 mile min and 300% credit)

    On a side note, starting April 1st, bmi will no longer credit US at 300% only at a new rate of 150% so for those looking for cheap status runs... this is as good as it gets, a CPM of 3.04 for paid First (600 mile min and 300% credit)

    Also, if you book on Expedia , no extra fees unlike on the Turkish websites, also this flight allows you a free stopover in IST and the IST-GRU can be changed at will... so you can sped a few months in IST/Europe and then fly down to Brazil... :D

    careful, BD no longer credits US at 300%, most of these fares will work in both directions, I bought them in OW form to add 5 segments per ticket... I think the UA deal also worked out of LAS which could be routed via SFO and LAX and a few more short hauls segments which add a nice 600 min... :)
