  1. At least show some etiquette and hat tip while you are busy leaching someone else’s work.

  2. Zozeppelin – Who am I supposed to hat tip?

    This was found through Google Flights when I woke up today.

    I don’t see it on The Flight Deal.
    So seriously, I don’t know where you think I found this fare?

    FlyerTalk?

  3. Hi there,

    I’m actually planning on going to MAD for Thanksgiving, leaving on the 20th and returning on the 29th — this is perfect! In fact, I was thinking of taking a side trip from MAD to RAK — question: can I split up the segments so that I arrive MAD on the 21st, leave for RAK on the 24th, come back to MAD on the 26th and then leave for SFO on the 29th? Thanks in advance for your help!

  4. @Y.C. – you can do that, but probably not on the $750 fare. International transit can only be 24 hours. You are doing stopovers more than 24 hours. Probably need two tickets to get lowest price.

  5. Air Fare Watch Dog, you may remember them from such moments as publishing specifics on a fuel dumping that single handedly sent that hobby 10x further underground.

    RAK seemed a bit random for someone to stumble on considering the timing, but I’ll redact, apologize and give you the benefit of the doubt since you beat TFD to the LAX-LIM fare (nice work).

    Note that this IB fare is missing YQ when connecting on Air Nostrum metal.

  6. Air Fare Watch Dog – I figured that out a couple minutes ago.

    I have been in this field of work for some time. I was in communication with George Hobica back in 2003-04 about helping AFWD find discount fares for Airfare Watchdog. I have had the skill to find discount airfares for many years. Google flights makes it easy these days.

  7. Although it was bound to happen by someone else if AFWD didn’t do it, they really hurt the whole community tremendously, and the rest is history. That and all they do all day is poach everyone else’s finds. It is always amusing to see the domino effect usually started by TFD or FT, then blogs (and FT bots) and AFWD poaches. The euro blogs are worse.

    Automated GDS searching > google flights. Its the constructions that make things interesting 🙂
