MKE-BWI $108 R/T Majors No Min 7day

Available every day except Sunday. I assumed this was an AirTran match fare but it's only showing up on the big six at this time. AirTran and Midwest are $10 more.

Sample (UA) Routing Rules for TRA7ON1:
ROUTING 42 FROM MKE-UA-CHI-UA-
VIA CLT/CLE/DTT/DAY/CMH/IND-UA-
OR VIA ABE/HAR/ROA/SDF/RIC/CAK/CRW/
ORF-UA-
OR VIA PIT-UA-PHL-UA-
OR VIA BUF-UA-ROC-UA-
TO WAS-UA-PHL-UA-CLT-UA-BWI*
OR TO WAS-UA-NYC/EWR-UA-BWI*
OR TO NYC/EWR-UA-WAS-UA-BWI*
OR TO WAS-UA-NYC-UA-BOS-UA-BWI*

This has been posted many times. Its actually a $98 base fare to compete with airtrans $49 each way fare. Should come out to about $116.50 with taxes, used to be $111.50 before oct 1st. I guess the government added a $5 additional fee starting the 1st.

I apologize for not doing a search, but I can tell you that it has come and gone over those few months, cause it wasn't there last week when I had to book a trip.

So...it's back

So true. Many of the fares listed here are time sensitive so the "do a search" mantra does not apply IMHO.

The extra bucks for tickets are for the Sept 11 security fees, reinstituted October 1 after a summer hiatus.

GREAT rates are also available from DCA.
NW routing, FYI, permits IAH on CO metal!
...'tis often a jungle jet, however.
