    I thought you didn’t get points and were not eligible for upgrades on priceline?

  2. aaron says:

    Deal is DEAD.

  3. Miah says:

    I got an April ticket on price line. It wasn’t available to purchase anywhere else. Now it looks like the fair is gone. It looks like its operated by american, do you think I can use a SWU?

  4. allie says:

    I tried purchasing 2 RT tickets. I input all my info, and they gave me a priceline reservation #. At this point, I’m under the impression that I got the deal. Afterwards, they said that the transaction didn’t go through, and I can’t get the deal. Any way I can fight this? I tried calling priceline and it’s impossible to talk to a live person.

    Thanks in advance.

      @allie – a confirmation number isn’t much from a claim standpoint. it needs to be ticketed, which didnt happen. sorry it didnt work out. 🙁

    Hi TFD,

    I’ve been reading your newsletter everyday in order to find a deal to Tokyo, of course my email arrived 4 hours after users reported the deal to have already been sold out. Any other tips for finding a cheap flight to Tokyo from NY in April?

    Or is there a way to specifically subscribe to any new topics you post regarding Tokyo, this way I can act immediately?


    • Star says:

      Check Malaysia Airlines. Was able to fly to LAX to Tokyo October 2013 for $600rt. They were having a sale last year that was being promoted for about 2 months in the spring of 2013.

  6. Miah says:

    Looks like I was lucky to get mine. I have a us-airway conformation number so I assume they cant take it back now.

  7. clayd333 says:

    I skipped it because I wasn’t comfortable w/ Priceline..

    • TFD says:

      @clayd333 – we dont recommend anyone that we wouldn’t use ourselves or services that charge more or does not give miles.
