UA: STL-ORD-DEN-SEA-PDX-LAX $91.50 AI O/W 2.44cpm 3746 miles

This one-way fare was loaded this evening sometime. Fare basis LAK14GS, 14-day advance purchase, valid Tu/We/Sa, commence travel by June 20th.

Lots of dates available in April as of a moment ago for this routing (4/13, 4/14, 4/17, 4/24, 4/27, 4/28). Saw one in March and a few in May, too.

$91.50 all-in, 3746 miles at 2.44cpm

Routing as stated can be done in single day. Booked on .bomb (multi-city). I made two separate one-ways for a roundtrip originating in LAX (my LAX-SFO-SEA-ORD-STL bookings were $87.80ai for those one-ways).

Edited to add: This assumes you earn the 500-mile minimum as an elite.

could also route STL-ORD-IAH-DEN-SFO-LAX for same price (and about 8 more miles ) -- only the short STL-ORD is on UX.

Fantastic fare for those in LAX and STL. I'm seeing some dates where the base fare comes up to $160 on a same day turn up til June 2.

Wish I could find this starting ORD. It seems like its always harder to find something from ORD.

Is 8 miles really worth the extra stop?

Probably a good fare for those in STL but not in QLA. There are too many things that can and will go wrong with these four/five transfer hops on UA with too many hops on UX with no F.

Besides I though that we had agreed here not to post convoluted routings but rather the straight fare. Anyone can have a look at the routing rules or try ITA to see what comes up.

It's not an extra stop, it's an extra EQS and for those of us who qualify on segments, it can make a big difference I will admit it's tough to pick up an extra segment between ORD and DEN when you can fly the new C on that route as I did last month...tough to give that up for a CRJ via FSD....lol.

I'm seeing the o/w STL-LAX, LAX-STL fare with 1-2 stop options for $85+. But for 3+ stops, I'm getting $218 o/w for this route on .bomb and other sites. Any help?

I believe the L class availability is gone.

4/13, 4/14, 4/17 and 4/24 still show L availability at the $91.50ai.

This must be a real newbie question, but can you tell me exactly how you are entering the route it into .bomb?

For example, on 4/17 on .bomb using multi-city, I enter LAX-SEA, SEA-STL. I see if I stop once in ORD or DEN, prices are $85+, but if I scroll down to the ones that stop at PDX or SFO on the LAX-SEA leg and prices are $200+.

Thanks!
