What Gives? CLE-LAX/SFO pricing at full Y until end of schedule

All CLE to SFO flights, including CLE-IAH-SFO are pricing at full Y until end of schedule. CLE to LAX also pricing at full Y until end of schedule.
(EWR-SFO are also pricing in H class until end of schedule.)

Obviously,
I know that CLE to OAK and SJC are pricing "normally".
I know that CLE-XXX-IAH/EWR-SFO flights are also pricing "normally".


What's the consensus?

Short term anomoly for one-ways or permanent opportunity for a LCC?

Not sure what end of schedule means I know we have a schedule change in Mar. I priced those trips two weeks from now and it priced correctly.

end of schedule = farthest most date in the future which a flight can be booked.

Pricing out okay for me too.

If you see it again on CO I'd run over and check the 3rd party sites to see if they're faring it out correctly.

Hopefully they will be, and if so, CO will enjoy quite the spike in LFGs.

Yes, it's pricing....but as I said, in FULL Y on any date.
That the question/reason for thread.....


Pick any date (including Christmas):

CLE - SFO pricing at $409 (in Y class).
CLE-IAH-SFO pricing at $409 (in Y class).
(Expedeeee pricing the same.)

Exactly what price are you seeing for CLE-SFO, for example, on 29-April????

I'm looking at a r/t, out on 5/13 and back on 5/20, for 198+ on both XP and CO.

Yes, J. Edward, r/ts are pricing correctly.

All CLE-SFO one-ways pricing at $409 until end of schedule.

(There's a CLE-IAH-OAK pricing at $99 on my target date...guess I'll be going into to OAK.)

Want to fly into SFO for convenience reasons and out of OAK for equipment reasons (the 6:XX a.m. SFO-IAH is a 735 while the 6:XX am OAK-IAH is a 738).

Multiple Destinations:
CLE-SFO, OAK-CLE pricing the outbound/first leg in full Y.


As you know, the first thing I checked was alternative pricing sites.

Perhaps this is a fundamental change in one-way pricing in certain markets/routes ???????

Same pricing "scheme" holds true for EWR-SFO.
The one-way pricing is in H class at over $500 while the r/t is less than $300...

I think this is nothing new for CO. DCA-EWR one-ways have priced at full Y for ages, no matter how far in advance.

I don't know if OW N/S CLE-LAX/SFO were always Y only, but they are almost always more than the RT...

Ooooooooohhh.

Well, when you say it like that!

FWIW, o/w's out of IAH to the west coast often make it up to the higher Y/H's buckets too.
