Air Canada Fares

Air Canada advertises on their website “Air Canada Lowest Price Guarantee always at AirCanada.com

An opportunity to check this out came today.

There is a return flight in July from JFK – DUS via Air Canada available on Orbitz for $869.00

A quick check at the Air Canada website shows this same return trip, on the same dates (20 July/26July) is priced at $1169.00.  The actual trip is JFK-YYZ-DUS, then DUS-YYZ-JFK.  $300.00 in savings are available by not using the guaranteed lowest price at Air Canada dot com.

Also, because this trip involves Tango and Lufthansa, Aeroplan miles would accumulate at 50% for part of the trip, and 0% for another part of the trip.

When I eliminate the JFK – YYZ leg of the trip, and using the same parameters, a return flight from YYZ – DUS comes in at a whopping $1818.00

What this means is I could book a return flight from YYZ – JFK on Air Canada’s website, book the Orbitz flight from JFK – DUS, and save $481.00 versus flying direct from YYZ – DUS.

Confusing?  Damn right!
