This error fare is similar to the one I shared a couple of months ago, for flights from Oslo to Singapore.

This is perfect for Asia-based travellers planning to redeem miles for flights from Europe, and looking for a flight to the region.

Air France Boeing 777-300ER Business Class seat

Unfortunately, Air France is not flying its aircraft with newer Business Class seats to Asia just yet.

The older cabin has the same 1-2-1 cabin configuration, with lesser technology and smaller screens.

Bottom line

This is an amazing error fare for a long-haul flight in Business Class, between Asia and Europe.

As there is a good chance that this is an error fare, it is advisable to defer making firm travel plans for at least the next couple of weeks, as the airline may cancel your booking and issue a refund (currency fluctuations may result in some monetary loss).

Historically, travellers who book error fares for flights in the coming days have a greater success of flying the itinerary (before the airline has time to react).

All the best!
