  1. The above dates no longer has above fair price.

    1. Asalamualaikum, I've checked and I'm still seeing the dates outlined on the post showing the same price as of this moment, however they might change day by day. Here's the flight dates shown in the example:;iti=YYZ,YTZ_JED_2016-05-07*JED_KWI_2016-05-19*KWI_YYZ,YTZ_2016-05-20;tt=m

      You may have to play around with the dates a little bit. You can also go to google flights and search for Toronto to Kuwait in "Round Trip" search which will show all the available price drops mentioned in the article in April, May, and June, and then model your Multi-City flight according to those dates.
