IATA just updated the currencies it seems.

Now there's only a 8.5% difference.

It's not very complicated.
Until 410pm it was ~20% off.
Now it seems to be ~8% off.

Found a deal on Kayak from JFK-CDG. On American Kayak $1044 http://www.kayak.com/flights/NYC-PAR/2015-02-24/2015-03-03
On Russian Kayak 51816 RUB which translates to $758 http://www.kayak.ru/flights/NYC-CDG/2015-02-24/2015-03-03
American Kayak does not offer the same combination of airlines.

I agree. But, I'm not a gambler- unfortunately. It could make some profit.

You can always cancel within 24hrs, so you have the upper hand with the gamble.

With the airfare deals, yeah. But, I'm referring to actually buying RUB via the exchange rate right now.
