and the sometimes-visible-through-ITN "E class" which purportedly is for reward upgrades.

If this list is specific to CO,

M is domestic economy reward.
Q is discounted economy.

Must be specific to CO as "R" on AA is upgrade on 3 class domestic transcons, "W" on NW is the award bucket for WP awards.

Not sure where I'm going, but I'm gettting there fast.

I'm pretty sure that A is premium first, not discounted.

A used to be discounted First Class, it started as a FC fare at a price about $10 more then a Y fare. A and F got switched around about 1995.

What's the point of this topic?

Obviously the original poster is wrong -- 1) fare classes vary between airlines and 2) A is full First Class on CO as we all too well know...

You've never flown R class on a CO MD80?
