Winner of the Contest will receive one (1) pair of tickets for travel on Air France operated flights in Premium Economy class between an Air France USA gateway and Paris, France, subject to all fare rules, terms and conditions. Tickets are distributed as one roundtrip set of tickets for Winner and one roundtrip set of tickets for Winner’s Travel Companion.
Winner and their Travel Companion may depart from one of the following Air France USA gateways only: Atlanta (airport code: ATL), Boston (airport code: BOS), Chicago (airport code: ORD), Detroit (airport code: DTW), Houston (airport code: IAH), Los Angeles (airport code: LAX), Miami (airport code: MIA), Minneapolis-Saint Paul (airport code: MSP), New York (airport code: JFK), San Francisco (airport code: SFO), Washington D.C. (airport code: IAD). The aforementioned gateways are those from which Air France intends to operate in 2017. For some gateways, Air France only operates on a seasonal basis and a Winner’s departure/return date preference may not be available. In the event that at time of a Winner’s travel dates Air France no longer operates from one or more of the gateways, and should this cancellation affect a gateway initially chosen by the Winner, tickets will be reissued departing from a USA gateway where Air France still operates with Winner/Travel Companion responsible for all costs associated with transportation to and from the outbound Air France USA gateway.
The Air France round-trip Premium Economy tickets are only valid for Air France-operated flights (i.e. no codeshares) and may not be applied towards accruals for any frequent flyer or similar-type program, including Flying Blue of Skymiles. Tickets may be subject to certain restrictions, including without limitation, availability in designated prize ticket fare classes and blackout dates (Blackout dates for usage: 12/16/17-12/31/17. Other blackout dates or restrictions may apply.) Air France will attempt to accommodate the Winner’s preferred dates but has no obligation to do so and all specifics thereof will be at Air France’s sole discretion. Air France flight numbers and dates of travel for the Winner’s Travel Companion must mirror those of Winner (i.e. they must travel together); all terms and conditions attached to Winner’s travel shall also apply to the Winner’s Travel Companion. The routing of the Premium Economy class tickets must be direct to Paris (CDG or ORY). No additional travel is allowed with the Premium Economy class tickets nor may additional segments be added; Actual retail value of tickets may vary based on fluctuations in prices for airfare. Air travel must be prescheduled by Air France at least two (2) weeks but no more than six (6) months prior to departure. Tickets must be issued and travel completed by March 30th, 2018.
Premium Economy class prize tickets are nonrefundable, nontransferable, not for sale, and no substitution by Winner and their Travel Companion or cash equivalent is allowed, except at Air France's sole discretion. Premium Economy class prize tickets are not valid for upgrades. Air France will not replace any lost, mutilated, or stolen tickets or travel vouchers and is not responsible if the trip is delayed, postponed, or cancelled for any reason. Winner and their Travel Companion are responsible for obtaining all necessary travel documentation including passports and visas, and are solely responsible for travel to and from the originating outbound gateway. All additional costs associated with the flights including but not limited to lodging accommodations, transportation and meals at destination are the sole responsibility of the Winner and their Travel Companion.
