US: Euro-MSP/DTW, from $331 a/i; G fare

GLE7SN, found on usairways.com and expedia (but not orbitz).

No penalty for weekend travel. In fact, immediate weekend turn-arounds are possible with no fare premium.

Sample dates used for pricing: 01/24 - 01/25

BRU seems to be the cheapest origination, available for $331. Other Euro origins available for under $400, but most are around $450.

Interesting post!
I found as low as $311 all-in on EXP, for weekdays, on BRU-MSP. FYI, the BRU-PHL segment is on the dreaded 757.
But you can route (for about $30-50 more) via FRA on A333 and via ORD/PHL/LHR on 767.

Nice find!
What got my attention is that BRU-MSP is 126.50 Euros and MSP-BRU only 36.50 Euros!
As open jaws are permitted and the fare rules say no HIP check I wonder if somebody managed to abuse this by using the return part and getting another cheap outbound part. Unfortunately the T fares for EU->US are rather expensive.

The great price caught my eye, thanks OP, but then I did a little research on the demographics of this carrier's vitriolic human cargo.
What the heck is happening to F (aka, I wanted to deck a guy in F)
and
Do you ever just want to punch the Barclays/Juniper M/C Guy in the concourse?

The price is sweet but make sure your tetanus shots are up to date.

Do you mean FRA-ORD on a UA codeshare is available?
