    Now remember, I am still learning, and I think I have come up with half an answer after thinking about it anyway. What does DONE4, *ONE4, DCIR22, etc relate to?

    Is D or * the class of travel (ie you could have a FONE4 and a YONE4 as well)?

    Are they only relating to oneworld carriers?

    If I was planning a trip BNE-MBJ in Y, is there an option to use one of these fares that might be cheaper or better value for money that the straight BNE-MBJ-BNE? (I know it is a bit late to be asking this question, but at least I will know for next time).

    And where does one go to find these fares online, or is it these fares that require TA assistance?

    A lot of this is explained in the 'stickies' at the top of the oneWORLD forum on Flyer Talk.

    Thanks serfty, that looks great. There is so much info about, I would never have found it. There have been a couple of questions I've asked where the answers have had links to FT in sections I never new existed!

    And a quick note for the casual reader who does not want to trawl through FT (although it's a great resource, and well worth the effort) ...

    Yes, the first letter of a *ONEn (e.g. DONE4) is the booking class.
    Nearly. First, Business and Economy Class bookings are made in "A", "D" and "L" classes respectively (although your boarding pass will still have the usual cabin initial, namely "F", "J" or "Y").

    The "ONE" refers to oneworld.

    The last digit refers to the number of continents covered.

    So a business class booking from Australia which visits North America, Europe and Asia (even if it is only a transit stop of 1.5 hours) is called a DONE4. The ones I do, which are down the back of the bus, are referred to as a LONE4.

    Yes, that's what the "ONE" in the middle of the code means.

    Click here to see info about (but not the actual costs of) *ONEn fare types. Other fare types are also covered on the oneworld site.

    Similarly, DCIR22 is a OneWorld CirclePacific fare, booked in D class bucket (business class) with a maximum of 22,000 miles. Again, the booking classes are A=First Class, D=Business Class, L=Economy Class. *CIRxx is available in 22,000, 26,000 and 29,000 mile versions, where the xx=22, 26 or 29 accordingly.
