UA: LAS-BDL/BUF/BWI/CMH/ALB/IND $197 ai (Apr, May; $213 ai eos)

UA has a bunch of fares to/from LAS for around $200 until EOS. Creative routing can yield ~3 cpm fares. Mostly mid-week but there are some weekend immediate turnarounds available. Bookable on UA as well as other sites.

More cities, too!

Such as PVD, RDU, TPA, JAX, PIT, etc. The usual suspects.

I don't know how long this is going to last, I keep finding fares on ITA then on UA.com or Orbitz the fare is higher.

Either ITA really sucks [I have had a few dates where it showed a decent fare, then when I click on it to view the results the fares were $50-75 more] or UA is pulling those fares.

Availability is draining, as more people book in the G bucket. Looks like the cheaper fare is valid until end of September, with the higher fare quoted by the OP showing for post-October 1 dates.

I waited too long and all of the weekend fares are gone it seems... I was looking for a Saturday same day turnaround ex-PIT

I spent too much time toying with the routings.

Sorry about that! My past experience with advanced booking has been that I could usually take advantage of schedule changes. Usually able to get CO agents to get the routing I liked. Good luck!
