INCREDIBLE: West Coast – Paris or London in Air France First Class for Just $636

I just wrote about an Air France first class fare from the West Coast to London for ~ $1500 roundtrip. Incredible.

Dan’s Deals points out that this fare is available as a one way for $636 as well. And that’s especially useful.

Here’s San Francisco – Paris in Air France first class connecting to intra-European business class to London.

Here’s LAX – Paris in Air France first class, conneceting to intra-European business class to London.

Note that the Airbus A380 of course has Air France’s older first class cabin if that matters to you.

Since these are one ways, if you prefer your destination to be Paris consider just getting off there. Throwaway tickets always present the risk or challenge that in the event of irregular operations (eg Air France cancels the flight) they may decide to put you on a different routing, for instance buying you a non-stop on British Airways to London. It’s worth reading up on the usefulness and risks of throwaway ticketing.

  1. Google flights show availability, but when you go forward the price jumps to around $9,000. Wierd.

  2. Gary, in my haste to book I accidentally entered my first and last name backwards on one of my AF tickets. Am i out of luck here?
    I know it would be ill advised to contact AF at this point. Curious how you would proceed…

  3. I snagged it. Gone in a matter of minutes around 10am ET. We’ll see if it is honored… ticket status is confirmed.
