    As posted on FT, LH loaded a bunch of $0 base fares on some routes out of C2 that connect through FRA. Decent MR opportunities. Looks like availability is drying up, but you can still snag some amazing fares for those routes.

    Sample:


    Dep: NOV 12, HEL-FRA, FRA-BOG
    Ret: NOV 13, BOG-FRA,FRA-HEL
    AI: $349 13,198mi.

    Supposedly books into L-class. Be aware it is low/non-earning in many programs.
    Awesome fares though, but sadly the misses could not be persuaded due to the safety concerns of the two countries.

    It works for arrival in Bogota, Cali, Caracas, Cartagena or Medellín if connecting in FRA.

    Ya, agreed on the earning caution. I always assume people are familiar with these or will look into them before booking anything, but good to note!

    Note that this is a MPM fare (7419 miles allowed for ARN-BOG).
    Transfers:
    3 TRANSFERS PERMITTED IN EACH DIRECTION.
    2 PERMITTED IN EUROPE IN EACH DIRECTION
    1 PERMITTED IN AREA 1 IN EACH DIRECTION.

    Two transfers in Europe mean you can do things like BOG-FRA-MUC-ARN either to earn more miles on the way or route it through an airport from which you want to start (in this case: end your trip and somehow forget to check in for the next segment).

    Other people already booked this and it shows up on ITA:
    ARN-DUS-MIA-BOG-FRA-ARN with MIA-BOG on AA.
    AA flight books into Q
     
  6. I suspect LH have arrived at the office this morning and corrected their mistake. ITA is now showing $670+ it seems.

    Yes. Can be marked as (gone) I guess. Congratulations to everybody that got on this.
