The following accruals were estimated for IAH-CDG-IST round trip travel on AF metal without considering any elite status bonuses or ongoing promotions.

Conclusion

This seems to be a one week promotional fare from the transatlantic SkyTeam partners. Alitalia is also offering a similar fare but given the current state of the airline (we’ve discussed it before), better to stay clear from their flights for the time being.

    Hi, probably this has been asked before but out of curiosity, how do you select the airfare of the day? A bit of a digression but is there a way to use ITA Matrix to find out the lowest price per mile to/from any destination within a given time frame? That could be useful for mileage runs I suppose… I use ITA but I have been surprised that I could sometimes find lower fares elsewhere. I suppose it could be due to a different ticketing area.
