Yep, it is true that it's not the lowest fare but it's still a $600 saving in our scenario, that is when they finally approve our fare. The beauty of buying both tickets as opposed to doing the 2-for-1 is I can also use my miles to upgrade both of us to business class but at this point, I'd rather save $600. With the two-for-one fare, not only does just one person get the FF miles, you can't use any upgrades. I actually used to own and operate a travel business that primarily serves international travelers and this 2-for-1 fare is still the cheapest....
