If I go onto the American Airlines website and look for direct Business flights Paris-Miami-Paris for say outbound 23rd Feb 2014 inbound 8th March 2014 – this is what I get:
But if I go to Iberia.com and set my country as France (website is then in French but Google chrome will translate it), then ask for the same tickets on the same AA flights, I get:
- Iberia CDG-MIA
- Which is about £900 – less than half the price that American are selling the tickets for.
- I could also find availability on flights to lots of other US cities – albeit with connecting flights.
- The only downside is that the American Airlines aircraft out of Paris don’t usually have the full-lie-flat business seat. The upside is a really low business fare with full One World miles and tier points.
