UA SEA-MCO/FLL $205rt ai 3.0CPM DEC-EOS

Not currently a UA flyer, but thought this might be helpful.

G class fare valid Now-EOS for around $205, later months are around $220 rt ai. Multiple connections allowed; it looks like EWR connections earn the most mileage. Watch out for direct flights on SEA-MCO. EWR connections give around 3339 miles each way for just over 3.0 CPM.

Fares are also available on a one-way basis, with some December availability.

Only AS flies SEA-MCO direct. So do you mean look out for the AS fares?

I think Tide_from_PAE really meant direct... direct (to be distinguished from non-stop) as in a single flight number "through flight" that would only earn EQM equivalent to the distance between the city pair as opposed to the EQM of the two separate legs (SEA-EWR-MCO).

This.

There are two SEA-MCO "direct" flights on UA most days. Supposedly SHARES will now split out the segments for CPU purposes but not for mileage earning to my knowledge.

I was referring to the airline definition of direct meaning same flight number, but with stops. In addition to the SEA-UA Hub-MCO flights, I also noticed some flights that went UA Hub-Other UA Hub-SEA, so it pays to look at the flight numbers before booking.

Sadly, this doesn't seem to work in reverse. Lowest I've found in 2013 is $316+. Good find from the west coast, though!
