Montreal to Dubai - $189 to $210 CAD roundtrip including taxes [error fare]

Dubai

Royal Air Maroc is showing flights from Montreal to Dubai for $189 to $210 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop each way, in Casablanca, Morocco.

The flight between Casablanca and Dubai is with Emirates.

I have some doubts as to whether these can be ticketed, since it appears to be an error fare that is showing up on about half of booking sites, and not all.

Update Nov 4th: Well I was wrong, these are being ticketed, through Emirates (see comments section below).

Update Nov 5th: These are no longer available.

You can also find Multi-City trips for the same price and visit both destinations...

Montreal (YUL) to Casablanca (CMN)
Casablanca (CMN) to Dubai (DXB)
Dubai (DXB) to Montreal (YUL)

Availability for travel

November 2021

January, February, March, April, May, June 2022

    Did you mean to say that you see your Booking Reference on Emirates?
    That's not the same thing as receiving the details of an e-ticket by email.
    Until you do, it still could get canceled.

    Also, it shows both flights in Royal Air Maroc are in FIRST!! I'll update if this changes.

    How can you say "ticketed"?
    Did you receive e-ticket details by email?

    Has Ruben  been here?
       Ruben on November 4th, 2021

    @B
    Once you add email information in the emirates website , you can go to the passengers preferences details , then scroll down and click on print ticket. There, you will see eticket number for each passenger. These will also appear in Royal Air Maroc page with the (AT) confirmation received.
    You should receive an email from Emirates with all this information once email is updated.
    I added all passengers info, passport, emergency contact, seats , etc.
    Everything is confirmed.

    Thanks for your patience. Yep, that looks more like an e-ticket:

    https://i.vgy.me/s9ZIs0.png

    I haven't traveled since march 2019, has the issuance of e-ticket changed since then? Don't they still send those automatically by email?
    Maybe Chris Myden can chime in?
    Does that look solid?

    Has Chris_Myden been here?

    Ticket receipt says flight cost $2 each, with the rest of the cost being associated with airport fees and taxes.

    i got confirmation emails. Still can't believe it.

    Always a relief when these kinds of situations work out, I know how disappointing it can be when they don't.

    R: Above, Ruben also mentioned getting First between YUL and CMN.

    Has @R been here?
       @R on November 5th, 2021

    @R
    Indeed. I got the FIRST CLASS fare when checking into Emirates in the YUL-CMN legs. However, when you hit print tickets there (i tried it just this morning) , all flights are shown as Economy. I tried to check with a friend who works at Emirates to see if I can get confirmation of either. But most likely, I think it’s economy. It would be a steal inside another steal if it’d be First Class as well even in Royal Air Maroc lol .
    If I get any sort of confirmation I’ll update.

    Hi,
    I was able to get a PNR, and for both my flights (air Maroc and emirates) but today morning got an email saying gotogate has cancelled my ticket due to a technical issue. I had booked it using gotogate and was also charged.
    My booking was also shown on the airmaroc website.
    Is there anything I can do.

    Has Anonymous been here?
       Anonymous on November 5th, 2021

    @Ali.C Unfortunately, I don't think you can do anything about it. Someone more experienced than me like @Chris_Myden might chime in about that. You win some, you lose some. Next!

    Has Jean-Francois been here?

    With 2 of my friends we made 3 separate bookings on Nov 3 at night on Gotogate. On the morning of the 4th, one of my friends got an email that his ticket has been cancelled for technical reasons. The other 2 bookings are still valid and confirmed on RAM and Emirates as of Nov 6... fingers crossed!

    Has N been here?
       N on November 6th, 2021

    So when they cancel the ticket do they refund the money you paid ?

    Has Jean-Francois been here?
       Jean-Francois on November 6th, 2021

    Yes they refund

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on November 6th, 2021

    Unfortunately what can happen sometimes is that at a certain point during the frenzy the airlines involved realize the mistake and correct the price. But for a short period of time after that, the booking site involved is still showing the mistake price, so a person thinks they have booked it, but it's actually too late, and it can't really be ticketed from the airline by the booking site.

    Although that might not explain what happened with Jean-Francois. In some cases you might have people that made multiple bookings at once on the same dates for the same flights, but the airline really only had X number of seats available at the cheap price on a given date, so they couldn't all be ticketed from the airline.

    Has B been here?
       B on November 6th, 2021

    @Chris_Myden Is there a way to trigger a cancellation with full refund on such an error fare? I have buyer's remorse because of the grueling schedule: 20 hours each way. I paid for Flexible tickets but GoToGate can't help me change flights and will only cancel if I take a $140 penalty. (I might as well go now.) Neither RAM nor Emirates will help either. Some people feel disappointed because they get a cancellation and of course, since I would like a cancellation, they won't cancel.

    @A

    Thanks but I don't think I could sell with a name change because it was bought via GoToGate and it's a single ticket. Late January 11 days. Still hoping for a change of schedule (which I would refuse) or an outright cancellation (with full refund).

    Disaster! Our flight AT246 got cancelled from CMN --> DBX and the new option leaves before our flight from YUL --> CMN arrives.

    the flight is a RAM flight
    The ticket is a emirates ticket 176****

    - RAM says they can't do anything since ticketed by Emirates
    - Flight Network is saying they can switch me to a flight YUL-YYZ and YYZ-DXB themselves but leaving a few days later
    -I asked if I can modify the return as well and they said it would be possible
    -It seems like the ball is in Emirates court - Obviously YYZ-DXB on emirates is going to be a sweet flight, i am thinking to make a change to the return so I get an emirates direct flight to return

    Has Samuel been here?
       Samuel on November 12th, 2021

    I booked through mytrip.com from the 3 rd to 23 of February. I got ticketed through emirates right away, with 3 of the 4 flights on first! Following a return-flight change notification, I called mytrip.com. They said the airline would allow a change and to do so would cost me 45$.
    She also said she can see that I got first-class seats but changing my itinerary would probably send me back to economy. Since I bought the ticket I have been wondering what the hell I'm gonna do in Dubai for 3 weeks. I am considering a trip within the trip to Mumbai on SpiceAir (320$) because Dubai seems pretty limited and like Vegas without the cheao booze (and far!)and I never would have gone had it not been for this insane fare error.

They’ll be leaving one day early and their connection is close to 24 hrs in Casablanca. Can they ask for accommodations from the airlines? Just wondering if that’s an option.

    Our flight got changed from casablanca to dxb, to one day prior. I called mytrip, paid $45.00 and our flight was changed from montreal to one day earlier. Ehich made sense. Now my entire outbound trip is cancelled, i called mytrip and they keep on transferring me and putting me on hold which gets disconnected.

    Outbound flight from Casablanca to Dubai got pushed to earlier. Actually departs BEFORE we even arrive in Casablanca from MTL. Gonna be contacting Gotogate to figure this out but doesn’t look good for the trip. More like scummy method to have ppl cancel their flights.

       Foz on November 18th, 2021

    @Benoit,, Vino and James24.
    I’m in the same shoes. Half of my family leaves on the Friday and their tickets are ok. Mine and three other kids are leaving on the Saturday and had the same problem. I called air Marco, they attempted to fix it but couldn’t. I called Emirates, they also couldn’t help. Finally I called gotogate and after speaking to three separate agents, they made me pay $45 and will attempt to put me on a flight from Montreal to Toronto and directly to Dubai. I have to wait for 3 days to get the approval from Emirates. I hope they agree to the switch.

    RAM told me that if the issue doesn’t get fixed 72 hours before departure, then they will deal with it directly without involving gotogate. So if I don’t get it fixed, I’ll wait and see.
    I’ll let you know if the switch is successful in a few more days.

    I’m not giving up yet. Will attempt a switch with the airlines again in 2 days.

       Foz on November 19th, 2021

    Update 2:
    Apparently I’ve been confirmed automatically on a different flight for the next day.
    My advice is always contact the airlines to see what they’ve done to remedy the problem before canceling with gotogate.

    Has Vino been here?
       Vino on November 19th, 2021

    I'm wondering if they are getting cancelled if the new flights are on emirates, but not so if the modification is with RAM flights only.

    @Foz ur updates are greatly appreciated. How did u find out about the new flight? Email from RAM? Debating if i should contact RAM or gotogate.

    Has Foz been here?
       Foz on November 20th, 2021

    @Benoit. I called RAM on the English line and the agents were not helpful. I don’t speak French so I called the Arabic line. With a little bit of struggle due to the differences in our dialects, I was able to get info that helped me when I called Emirates. The agents at Emirates said that my booking is confirmed at their end but the agents at gotogate would need to confirm at their end. When I called gotogate, the new flights were not showing on their system. After much of going back and forth between the three places, Emirates issued an warning email to gotogate letting them know of their obligation to call on my behalf and confirm the flight even if it’s not showing on their system - as long as the client (me) is okay with it.
    Anyhow, long story short, I’m confirmed on the Emirates side (although the plane is by RAM) pending gotogate confirmation.
    Gotogate was telling me to request a refund. We all know that we’re not going to see these prices in the near future.
    Keep trying. Hopefully it will be resolved.

    Has Vino been here?
       Vino on November 23rd, 2021

    @foz That's a lot of back and forth. I hope Gotogate will stop giving you the run around. For me, my flight to Dubai works out. It's just my return home is much earlier shortening my trip. Not sure if it is worth taking the risk to try and modify the return flight home to a few days later, but that would be my preference. I reached out to Emirates to try and gather some info and they were nice but directed me back to the travel agency, which in my case is Flight Network (seems Gotogate & Flightnetwork have the same parent company). Surprisingly the modifications I received from Royal Air Maroc, were not reflecting on Emirates website nor with the Emirates agent I spoke to.

    Has Rid been here?
       Rid on November 23rd, 2021

    @foz, thank you for the updates.
    Exact same issue I am facing. GoToGate told us that the flight has been cancelled but when you talk with RAM or Emirates, the flights are not cancelled. Spoke again with GoToGate, they said they will "try again"....and sent another request in.

    I feel like GoToGate is just trying to make up cancellations and wants the $45 fee for cancellation. I am not sure what to do at this point. I know this 2nd request they've made will have the exact same result. I actually doubt they even make the request to emirates in the first place.

    I think Emirates should be the one to take responsibility and fix the tickets without having to deal with GoToGate or another agency.

    If anyone has any other ideas to share, please do.

    Has Samuel been here?
       Samuel on November 23rd, 2021

    To me, besides the shortening of the trip, it is the 36 hour layover in morocco for the return, possibly requiring another pcr test in casablanca since I'm gonna have to leave the airport.

    The flight AT244 scheduled on Thursday 17 february 7:35 pm from Casablanca to Dubai has been cancelled by RAM, my flight was changed to Friday 18 February 3:05 pm by Flight network, I paid 45$, not sure if it requires another pcr test if I stay in the airport, if I leave the airport, I've not found where to do this pcr test, I'll arrive at casablanca thursday 17 february at 9:00 am and my flight from casablanca to dubai is Friday 18 February 3:05 pm, does someone know where to do the pcr test in Casablanca and be able to get the result within 24 hours or less ?

    Has Benoit been here?
       Benoit on November 23rd, 2021

    Gotogate moved my departure to the next day since RAM canceled the original outbound flight. Couldnt get the Montreal-Toronto-Dubai some folks in this thread had. Shorter trip in dubai but happy with the alternate option. Paid $45 but hopefully no more changes.
