Right. And there's plenty of discussion on Flyertalk about whether you REALLY need to take the Amtrak segment. Some folks have used this as a workaround to get cheaper UA fares out of EWR. I haven't followed it closely this year, so I don't know if this loophole still works. For folks originating in Philly, it's usually more trouble than it's worth to take the train, unless the 30th St. Station is convenient for you. You do save a few dollar is PFCs this way, as train taxes are lower.
