ex-CMB fares “pulled”

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:

From One MIle at a Time

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.



  1. Wow, I actually *just* booked this fare one week ago for travel at the end of the year. Prices out on Matrix at 150% now.

  2. Glad I was able to take advantage of this before the increase. Thanks for the update! For what it’s worth, it was still possible to book on Emirates, but you had to book a Qantas codeshare operated by Emirates.
