It seems like the CMB fares have been raised by 50% which is the biggest blow to this fare since EK didn’t allow this fare to be booked with their flights.
ExpertFlyer now shows a different fare code (I believe the original one was AAOWISC):
This prices as $3500 on ITA Matrix:
It seems the fare rules are even stricter, although that’s negligible given the change to the price:
The fare originally priced like this:
That basically means it is now not economically feasible at all to position to take advantage of this fare and essentially now I consider the fare gone (with a new fare code made).
I really wanted to book one of these earlier and it looks like I now can’t. Too bad. Deals come and deals go all the time.
