Title: TLV-BCN in J - 558$ (Looks like a mistake fare)
Post by: B.D.Da'ehu on June 09, 2015, 01:07:26 AM
Just came across this on FT.

TLV-BCN in J, Bookable on Alitalia.com. Looks like a mistake fare as it usually goes for 950-1000$ and i did not find any published promotion. Dates from tomorrow until mid September (many options)

Nice option for a summer holidays in BCN with the family

Also good for flying blue members at 200%+status bonus of 50%-100%, as platinum for example you will earn over 12,000 miles...

Isn't this just a blocked middle seat?

It is the standard "European business class" with the middle seat blocked.

it's not necessarily a bad deal, prices for TLV-BCN in the summer can get really high so 560$ isn't too bad even for Y let alone J.

That's EXACTLY what you get. I flew TLV-FCO-CDG last month, got that plus a small pasta dish and some decent wine. I was the only passenger in the cabin (2 1/2 rows, 10 seats in total, a few occupied by AZ crewmembers dedheading back to Rome. I used Delta Miles as the mileage usage was a mere 5000 over coach, did not have to wait an hour in line for TLV security as the Business Class line was so short, and I did get Lounge access in TLV. Not a real Business Class but not a horror either.

Summing it up, if it is $ 100 over coach, it's worth it but not if it is $ 300.

(All of the above is from FT)

not worth it, usually can get Y for at least $200 less.

Still alive. It isn't a price mistake it's a sale. Travel needs to be 3-30 days. They also have Y for 160 EUR

If they gave Y for 160 then you got to be loony to pay that price for J paying for the middle seat itself is cheaper
