    I tried copying and pasting the T&C in, but it won't let me. Keeps saying to enter a valid message. :confused:

    My wife misread this offer and thought it was a flight to Paris for $99. Thanks to all you fine folks, I was already well-acquainted with OpenSkies and knew that was way too good to be true and got to deliver the bad news. Guess it's time to crank up the Skypeso calculator and figure out how to get to Paris...

    Where are you located and when do you want to go? I recently spent some pesos on a trip including Paris, and some gateways had pretty good availability to Paris on AF.

    Those questions are actually keeping me from booking any big trips at the moment. A possible transfer for my job is making it difficult to make long term plans at the moment. Thanks for the offer though!

    Anyone here have an idea what the approximate taxes would be for departing ORY? It's a great deal for $99 assuming the taxes aren't absurd and you can time the dates you want to travel. That's the risk I see with this voucher.

    I’m fairly skeptical of a $499 discount when it cannot be used for other offers.

    Doesn't openskies have discounts all regularly? Such as the current $715 each way from Washington to Paris?

    For example here is the current pricing one-way for Thanksgiving IAD – ORY.
    Biz Seat Value $1,676.60
    Biz Seat Semi-Flex Biz $2,238.60
    Biz Seat Flex $2,738.60

    Obviously if this is only valid on the Biz Seat Flex its only helpful if you are able to plan ahead to buy a full priced ticket. My argument is if you can plan ahead to by full priced then usually you could just by a discounted ticket most of the time.
