Most wide open routes (using the term relatively) that I've seen so far are EWR-BUR and BDL-LAS. Everything else is incredibly spotty. DCA might prove really valuable due to the US promo if traveled before 9/30.

"In celebration of our new DCA service, earn double miles when you fly to or from Reagan National Airport.
Here’s how:
Book July 7 – August 5, 2012
Travel July 7 - September 30, 2012
No registration required" (Not double elite miles, just double award miles)

If you are willing to go for a week, things open up....but 1 nighters do indeed look spotty.
Thanks for pointing out the DCA promo

AA has some decent enough LAX/SAN-BDL rates going right now, won't post as they're over 5 cpm, but when combined, could make this a little stronger by getting around that stay requirement. Too bad I can't go Tuesday or Wednesday right now at all.

I am absolutely mad right now. I just spent ~$637 on COPA to GIG for 11K EQMs when I could have waited and got the same EQMs for less on US albeit I would probably have to fly two or more seperate times.

I would much, much rather go to GIG than fly to any of the available places on US.

I see some of these going into R. What fare class is that on US?

Trust me...I'm not shedding any tears because of this trip. OTOH, I would rather get the EQMs for less dollars.

In September, you can fly Tuesday nights DCA-CLT-LAX (flights leaving around 6:30 p.m.) and then LAX-CLT-DCA back on Wednesday afternoon for $172. 5020 miles at 3 cents per mile (if I calculated correctly). I don't know how the double miles would work on that though--I'm assuming b/n DCA and PHL. If so, it would be slightly more miles on top of the 5020.

It'd be for the entire trip. So you'd get 5k elite miles, and 10k US miles. 12 of those (not that 12 are available at that price!) would get you a RT award in F on *A to the North Asia region on Dividend Miles.

Also of note, there is an $18 each way for a round trip base fare on US PHX-LAS, works out to $62 AI RT, or $31 a segment, not bad.
