  1. I think DL screwed up with this, TBH. If this is in fact a legit sale (and it seems to be with all of the restrictions), they lose the ability to claim any future error is a mistake fare. Their CoC only says that they “do not, or do not intend to file $0 fares.” NW used to use the language “zero or near zero.”

    So by offering a legit $1 base fare (with $199.20 in “international surcharges”) they take away the ability to argue that the fare is “so damn cheap a reasonable person would have to know it’s a mistake.”

  2. The one problem with so many damn miles is that I plan my leave 1-2 years out, and fly overseas in business. I have almost no current need for an essentially “last minute” coach ticket that I actually have to pay for, no matter how good the “deal.”

  3. Not to come across as paranoid, neither nation is one I would spend my whole time.IMHO,things could go crazy, anytime in the near future in either country. As a jumping off point to explore the region, if the flight saves you money, why not.

  4. good leverage opportunity with the Club Carlson promotion. I see AAA rates at Istanbul Tuzla property for $72 net depending on the dates

  5. L, how do you do the IAD to Dub for $345?
    I can’t find such amazing price.

    What is the search criteria?
