It’s already out on the blogosphere so I’m not sharing anything that hasn’t already been on twitter and Flyertalk for at least a day.
There is currently a fare from the Seychelles to Dublin in Business for less than many fares. Search Flyertalk, Frequent Flyer University, or Canadian Kilometers for more details about the fare and dates.
I haven’t been one to take advantage of
mistake customer friendly fares before, but I’ve wanted to go to Seychelles and Heels First Travel always stresses to have a list of places you will go sooner if you can find a good fare. I also needed to book a trip to Dublin for TBEX Europe so a SEZ-DUB fare worked for me.
I’ll be going from Charlotte to SEZ, spending a few days in SEZ, then taking the customer friendly business fare to DUB, attending TBEX, then flying on the direct home.
Fare: 223 GBP + award ticket booked on United (open jaw) for 70,000 points (in economy) + $52.50. I had to transfer some points from Chase to finalize the booking, but it worked out just fine.
I didn’t do a stopover at any of my destinations and I still need to figure out what to do about hotels at both of those destinations, but oh well!
See you in Dublin if you are going to TBEX!
