    Can’t be the fuel surcharge… G fares on the direct JFK-TLV service don’t get charged YQ/YR either, but still are in the 1000+$ range…

    Bloggers ruin everything! (says a guy who already booked his trip JFK-ZRH-TLV)

    @theblakefish because this information isn’t your personal property? If you discovered it and want to control who uses it, keep it to yourself.

    @Oliver …I don’t know that I agree…I just keep things close to vest and try and fly under the radar.

    But then again, I don’t own a blog… 😉

    It didn’t last long anyway and I see now that it is all over the web…

    Hi I would like to know if anyone could give me advise on what to do I booked earlier today on Cheaptickets but I did not book for my baby who will be 15 months can I add him on now? Or does anyone have any idea on how I can get him on the flight ( on my lap) do I call the airline or cheaptickets?

    @theblakefish — the MR forum on FT isn’t exactly a secret place that the airlines or others in the industry don’t know about. So I am not sure what the concern is — that non-FT users (blog readers) get to benefit from a deal? It’s not like FT MR doesn’t have a huge “lurker” audience that doesn’t actually contribute to the site and just picks up information.

    @Oliver – I know of another blogger on UPGRD who has killed at least 2 deals that I know of, hence my immediate concern. I did not know that it was previously posted in other spots before it was posted here. Since Boarding Area doesn’t allow me to delete earlier comments, I had no way of retracting my comment. My apologies. Now, let’s get back to airline stuff… 🙂
