They don't, only a US Airways lounge at BDL.

Great find. This must be like 1 of 2 deals into/out of BDL that's discovered, no? I'm mostly UA, so this is not too applicable, but at that price I'm tempted to just do the trip without regard for the miles and the status!

UA has similar; example 12/13OCT

BDL-IAD-LAX; LAX-SFO-CLE-BDL 5573mi for $190 or 3.4cpm

Can't find a red-eye return, which would be nice as opposed to hanging out at LAX from 1AM-6AM.

UA matching. Seeing $187 for most of September.

LAX-IAH-IAD-BDL-EWR-IAH-LAX nets 6348 EQM with 500-mile minimum, at 190.80, or 3.01cpm.

EDIT: LAX-SFO-IAD-BDL-IAD-SFO-LAX nets 6838 with 500-mile minimum at 193.80, or 2.83cpm.

Also, when trying to book on UA.com, there's a single flight number option (UA590)? It's a two-stop, double-equipment change flight. You only get LAX-BDL credit for that one, not with the stops it takes, right?

looks like it has been pulled. and you could not do a same day turn so with a hotel it was not the greatest. but would have been great for a mini vacation!

Thanks for this! I've been waiting for a sub 3 cent MR out of LAX. Just booked it. You rock!

Is this gone. Can't seem to get it to work. Even without multi segment routing?

Bolding mine: Yes-if it is one flight number, it's origin to destination mileage as if non-stop vs segment by segment if each flight is booked separately using the multi-city option

Yeah, that's what I thought. Was definitely surprised to see the single flight number option for LAX-BDL!
