Fare of the Day: Cheaper to Fly Business Class this Summer?!

Tracy Stewart, March 14, 2011
Fares from Washington DC:

    Fly from Boston to Paris this summer in business class for $1,455 round-trip, including all taxes. Before you have a coronary, let us repeat, that figure is for business class, and for peak summer. We remember summers when a seat in economy was going for nearly as much, so this really is a great fare!

    In fact, when checking this fare, we noticed seats in economy were actually priced HIGHER than seats in business ($675 vs $633)? Wha?! Stranger still? That higher biz class fare is NONSTOP whereas the higher economy ticket is a connecting flight.

     You can find these fares on AA.com and Travelocity, but good luck finding them on Kayak. We searched again for a peak summer business class trip to London and found the very same itinerary (same dates, same everything) on Kayak listed for more than double. Compare below, first on American and then on Kayak:
