UA: ZFV-LAS (or LAS-ZFV) $66 o/w -> 2.7cpm

ZFV-EWR-LAS for $66 = 2.9cpm
ZFV-EWR-IAH-LAS for $70 = 2.7cpm

Routes via SFO (ZFV-EWR-SFO-LAS) will only credit for ZFV-EWR-LAS since EWR-SFO-LAS is a "direct" (note: *not* "non-stop") flight from EWR-LAS and share the same flight number (814).

N fare, 58.60 USD + Tax
Travel permitted Tue/Wed/Sat

2 transfers permitted in each direction

Routing:

Code:
TRAVEL MUST NOT BE NONSTOP                                                      
  1 * PHL/ZFV-CLT/WAS/EWR/CHI/CLE-HOU/DEN/CHI-LAS                               
  2 * ZFV-ZWI/ZVE/ZTF-CLT/WAS/EWR/CHI/CLE-HOU/DEN/CHI-LAS                       
  3 * PHL-HOU/DEN/CHI-LAS
So, if you find N class, you can squeeze in two transfers, however SFO is not allowed according to the fare rules...

Ahh, looks like EWR-SFO-LAS is the same flight number (814)...so I think you'll only get mileage for the direct EWR-LAS, right?

Unfair! Someone who wants US Div w/ this tix could try to split into 2 segs and when submitting to US website as a retro. Let's see what happens?

That routing is 3.1cpm (not bad, but not as good as the train options).

$20 well spent if you actually want to go to PHL airport for one reason or another

in any case too much to position from SMF/RNO. the $ of positioning flights on WN is the same as the transcons even with the WN sale.

if flying it as a one way ex-PHL, yes. this is hidden city ticketing, it's frowned upon by the airlines but if not conducted frequently, its unlikely to raise any flags against your account.

Probably, but in case of IROPS or schedule changes, you might get tossed on the EWR-LAS direct flight.

Where are you seeing routing via SFO? The only availability I am seeing is non-stop EWR-LAS (works out at 3.4 cpm, excluding the rail portion).
