Newark To Paris Round-Trip Nonstop In British Airways Open Skies Business Class For $1,168 Or JFK To Paris In American Business Class For $1,300

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Update, 04/23: Incredibly, this deal is still alive.  Definitely the best bang for your buck for flights to Europe.

——————————————————————————————————-

Originally posted on 04/17:

The BA deal from JFK or Newark to Paris died last night, but British Airways is back with very good good business class fares from Newark to Paris/Orly.  The British Airways JFK to Paris/Orly fares are significantly higher, though American still has cheap fares from JFK to Paris/CDG.

You can depart on most dates between now through October 24. A Saturday night stay is required.

From Paris you can connect to other cities in Europe on the cheap with Avios/miles or with the numerous low-cost carriers that operate across the pond. You should be able to get cheap tickets or awards to Israel as well.

Here’s how to knock down the price to $1,167 round-trip.

-Use this link to access the BA AARP site.

AARP members get $400 off BA business class tickets. Anyone can join AARP for $16. Just click “Log in to your AARP account here” to join AARP for $16 or to login to your existing AARP account.

Creating an account takes just a minute and as soon as you open an account you can make a login and then unlock the BA offer which can be used an unlimited amount of times.

Only 1 passenger needs to have an AARP account.

Once you are logged in just use the BA AARP link again (you may need to click on “verify membership) and search for a flight from NYC to Paris in business class. British Airways’ Open Skies affiliate airline operates daily service from both JFK and Newark to Paris/Orly. The business class seat converts into a lie-flat bed.

Select the Open Skies options and on the next screen locate the promotion code or eVoucher field and enter the following code: CARDOFFERU
Officially you are supposed to use the BA Visa to use that code, but made a confirmed/e-ticketed booking yesterday with a Sapphire Preferred Visa and it went through just fine.

You’ll also earn 10,902 Avios for the trip.

Cancellations are permitted within 24 hours for free over the phone (I used this myself yesterday). After 24 hours the fee is a whopping $500 per ticket.

You can also fly from JFK to CDG on American for $1,300 after the AARP discount, though the additional 10% off doesn’t apply to American flights.

HOT! HURRY! NYC To Paris Nonstop In British Airways Open Skies Business Class For $981 Round-Trip!

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Update #3: Dead!

Update #2, 2:15pm: The multi-passenger discount is now dead.
The price is now $1,167.24 after both discounts regardless of the number of passengers.

Update #1, 1:15pm: This fare is still alive, but you can now only depart between May 16 and August 23.
———————————————————————————————
British Airways has some very good good business class fares between NYC and Paris.

You can depart any day between now through September 3. As long as you depart NYC by September 3 you can return anytime after that.

-You can depart between May 16 and August 23. As long as you depart NYC by August 23 you can return anytime after that. A Saturday night stay is required.

-From Paris of course you can connect to other cities in Europe on the cheap with Avios/miles or with the numerous low-cost carriers that operate across the pond. You should be able to get cheap tickets or awards to Israel as well.

-The sale fare for business class for 2 or more passengers is $1,491 per passenger. Business class for 1 passenger is $1,697.

Here’s how to knock down the price for multiple passengers down to $981 or for one passenger down to $1,167 round-trip.

-Use this link to access the BA AARP site.

AARP members get $400 off BA business class tickets. Anyone can join AARP for $16. Just click “Log in to your AARP account here” to join AARP for $16 or to login to your existing AARP account.

Creating an account takes just a minute and as soon as you open an account you can make a login and then unlock the BA offer which can be used an unlimited amount of times.

Only 1 passenger needs to have an AARP account.

Once you are logged in just use the BA AARP link again (you may need to click on “verify membership) and search for a flight from NYC to Paris in business class. British Airways’ Open Skies affiliate airline operates daily service from both JFK and Newark to Paris/Orly. The business class seat converts into a lie-flat bed.

Select the Open Skies options and on the next screen locate the promotion code or eVoucher field and enter the following code: CARDOFFERU

That code brought down the price for 2 passengers to just $1,963.68 or just $981.84 per passenger round-trip in business class!

Each passenger will also earn 10,902 Avios for the trip.

Cancellations are permitted within 24 hours for free over the phone (I just used this myself). After 24 hours the fee is a whopping $500 per ticket.

Charter A Private Jet From Toronto To Chicago Tomorrow For $536

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

JetSuite offers last-minute deals to rent out a private jet on the cheap.

Tomorrow they have a flight from Toronto to Chicago at 1pm.

You can bring up to 6 passengers, so your cost per seat can be as low as $89. WiFi and refreshments and free. A lap child under 2 is free as well.

If it says to wait to request that means someone else has it in their cart until the time expires as shown.  It will change to sold out if they actually book it.

The reason it’s so cheap is that they need to ferry the planes anyway for customers paying the big bucks so they offer deals that change daily based on where they need to ferry the planes.

If you’re looking for a return flight, there are 5 seats available to fly back from Chicago nonstop to Toronto on Friday at 6am or 2 seats on Thursday at 6am in business class for 9K BA Avios plus $5.60 per person.

So who’s going to go for a Milt’s and/or Shallots run? If you book it be sure to post a trip report with pics on DDF :D

American Will Honor $442 Business Class Tickets To China; From Aurora Borealis Hunting To Posting Deals…

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

This past Tuesday night I managed to type up a post while on an Aurora Borealis hunt about $442 business class tickets to China on American.

The base fare on the tickets was $0, which American initially tried using as a reason to not honor the fares.  But in the end all purchased tickets will be honored.

American will not be honoring tickets if you only held the reservation, though some people who had their holds cancelled were able to call up and have it reinstated.

Bottom line is, don’t rely on award holds during price mistakes. Book first, ask questions second. And don’t forget to book a seat for your infant!
Another lesson from past mistakes is to fly quickly if possible.

During United’s 4 mile glitch to Hong Kong and the London first class glitch, those that traveled right away (there are trip reports posted on DDF) had their full itineraries honored. In 2012 Mimi and I were en-route to Buenos Aires within 2 hours of booking first class glitch tickets. Though that takes a lot flexibility.

If you landed business class tickets to China and you have or know of anyone that has a systemwide upgrade you can even upgrade the ticket to first class, as American has no minimum fare requirement on their systemwide upgrades.

In case you’re interested about my half of the story and why my post on the deal was rather succinct.

I was still reeling from missing out on a DDF Photography DO to Iceland that took place in late February. DDF photography guru “Something Fishy” leads Photo DOs that are legendary. Last January 4 DDF members flew to Cleveland where we took incredible pictures during the polar vortex before I grilled up some steaks for the DO.

We had an awesome trip to Israel, but I missed out on this bucket list experience:

 

 

 

So on Tuesday when I read that the northern lights would be viewable due to a solar storm and clear conditions I went out to the country looking for them.  And yes, I had a laptop with me just in case there would be a deal.

Ironically my brother alerted me to the deal on DDF and it was posted by none other than Something Fishy who referenced Lucky’s post on the deal. I’ve already heard from several people who got tickets to China thanks to the post, so having the laptop proved worthwhile!

I did get some pictures which of course aren’t in the same realm as Something Fishy’s otherworldly pictures.  Then again mine were taken in Cleveland, not Iceland, and I don’t know a thing about post-processing.

Ever so faint, but it is there:

???????????????????????????????

TAM: Fly Nonstop From JFK-Toronto For $60 And Toronto-JFK For $97 With Free Luggage

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Bookable on CheapoAir.

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
Earn 3 points per dollar on airfare with the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card.

Limited seats are available. Always search for 1 seat and then work your way up to the number of seats you need in order to book as many seats on sale as you can.

Brazilian carrier TAM will start flying nonstop between JFK and Toronto later this month.

It’s a tag-on flight from Sao Paulo and operated so that the 767 doesn’t just sit parked at JFK all day.  It’s a 5th freedom route that allows a foreign carrier to sell tickets on select routes between 2 other countries.  Similar to the JFK-Vancouver 777 route that is sold by Cathay Pacific.

TAM’s merger partner LAN used to serve the route, but that ended a few years ago.

TAM is a OneWorld airline, so you can use Avios for this route.  The rates are the same as for flights on American, 4.5K Avios in coach and 9K Avios in business each way.

In coach you’ll get 1 free 50 pound bag, in business you’ll get 3 free bags.

With the current sale it’s worth just saving those miles for another time.

Valid JFK-Toronto $60 dates:
March: 29, 30, 31.
April: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23.

Valid JFK-Toronto $65 dates:
April: 22, 24, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.
May: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.

Valid Toronto-JFK $97 dates:
March: 29, 30, 31.
April: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 23.

April: 22, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.

Charter A Private Jet From NYC To West Palm Beach Today For $1,073

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Update: The Teterboro flight has been booked, the Newburgh flights is still available.

————————————————————————-

JetSuite offers last-minute deals to rent out a private jet on the cheap.

Today they have 2 flights from the NYC region to West Palm Beach, FL.

There’s a flight available from Teterboro at 11:30am and a flight available from Newburgh/Stewart at 1:15pm.

You can bring up to 6 passengers, so your cost per seat can be as low as $178.

If you’re looking for a return flight, there are at least 6 seats available to fly back from West Palm Beach nonstop to LaGuardia on Wednesday or Thursday for just 7.5K BA Avios per person.

WiFi and refreshments and free. A lap child under 2 is free.

The reason it’s relatively cheap is that they need to ferry the planes anyway for customers paying the big bucks so they offer deals that change daily based on where they need to ferry the planes.

If it says to wait to request that means someone else has it in their cart until the time expires as shown. It will change to sold out if they actually book it.

If you book it be sure to post a trip report with pics on DDF 😀

Don’t need the whole plane? In the past DDF members have split a plane, so make a post there if you want to join in on some fun!

DoT Will Not Compel United To Honor Tickets Purchased In Danish Kroner

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

-United Will Not Honor Danish Kroner Tickets
—————————————————————————————–

I joked on the DansDeals Forums that the Vegas line for the United first class tickets from London to be honored was 9:1.

And now we know it conclusively, the DoT will not be enforcing tickets bought with Danish Kroner:

“On February 11, 2015, a currency exchange-rate error in 3rd party software supplied to United affected several thousand bookings on United’s Denmark-facing website. Specifically, this error temporarily caused flights originating in the United Kingdom and denominated in Danish Kroners (DKK) to be presented at only a fraction of their intended prices. While United filed fares correctly, this software error caused amounts charged to be significantly lower than prices offered through all other distribution channels or available in any other currency.

United promptly voided transactions affected by this exchange rate error, reversed all associated charges and contacted customers directly through email and other methods. Customers should not have any resulting charges related to voided reservations nor should they need to take any proactive steps to seek a refund of charges.

The Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has informed United that it does not intend to pursue enforcement action in this matter. With the agreement of the DOT, this statement replaces the requirement to provide individual responses to those interested in this issue who have corresponded with the DOT or with United.”

United Will Not Honor Danish Kroner Tickets

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

United has just put out this statement:

“United is voiding the bookings of several thousand individuals who were attempting to take advantage of an error a third-party software provider made when it applied an incorrect currency exchange rate, despite United having properly filed its fares. Most of these bookings were for travel originating in the United Kingdom, and the level of bookings made with Danish Kroner as the local currency was significantly higher than normal during the limited period that customers made these bookings.

In other words: Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.

I’m not going to tell you whether to complain or not, but it’s definitely within your rights to file a complaint to the US DoT. DoT regulations state that mistake fares that contain travel to, from, or connecting in the USA must be honored. United obviously thinks that they will not be found in violation of those regulations under these circumstances or else they would have honored the tickets, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have the right to file a claim.

You win some and you lose some in these cases. Over 10+ years of blogging years I’ve covered dozens of fares like these including first class travel to Hawaii for $50 and all-expenses paid 5 star vacations in Las Vegas. Many of these have worked out, while some do not.  This one will fall in the latter it seems.

Sometimes it’s hard to even tell which are glitches, such as a “mistake fare” on United that was “leaked” online by a Norweigan airline on purpose and last month’s $63 round-trip transcontinental fares.

One thing is for sure. There will be a next time and we’ll go through all of this again. Want to take part?
