(FARE GONE) UA/"Air One" JFK-FCO $296 a/i via "PL trick"

Modified PL... I found it via Kayak.com.... make sure that you search for the specific dates, choose "Air One" as the airline since that will trigger the "PL trick" and then hit "cheaptickets.com" on the sites to search...

confirmed for purchase $296 JFK-IAD-FCO-IAD-JFK for Feb 1-9 but I don't see any reason why this won't work for other dates. Just gotta make sure that your original fare shows both UA flights and Air One as a UA codeshare, if it shows all Air One then it won't work right.

But it's out there.. play around with it...

We've seen the PL trick to Europe and now recently to Africa, I want to see it to S. America and Asia.

Since I can't make a coherent post at 4am, I'm using snagit to snap some screenshots with arrows as to what to look at.

Start at www.kayak.com/buzz

Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3:

Step 4:

Follow these steps... it should be clear. YMMV on the absolute exact price since it will vary by dates but the $296 was found on Feb 1-9.

Excellent find! Does one get full UA miles on this since it's operated by UA?

On the UA segments, yes collect RDM and EQM. RDM on AP, but no EQM.

Just to clarify, EQMs and RDMs on AP flight number but UA operated correct?



This seems to be a T fare so not upgradeable.
