CM allows EQM to CO.
No you will not get UA miles for this---Copa is not a Star partner.

Me, neither. I never could find the fare that Mennix found (even on the dates and booking engines that he posted), but I previously found the $1400 or so that I posted on 10/29-11/01, 11/12-11/19, first half of December, and early January. It doesn't show for any of these now, so I guess it's gone. I regret not booking one.

Thanks for the tip.
I found the fare matched by LH, CO, DL, AF, UA.
Being in ATL, I preferred the LH option of flying out of ATL direct.
Booked ATL-FRA-LIS-FRA-ATL in Business on LH for 1855 USD. Great rate for ATL.
Similar rates available for CDG, FCO, LHR, MUC ,BCN. And from most US cities

All of EU in onsale during Thanksgiving week. No need to pick crappy US with transcons in economy (or even their joke of an F cabin). CO, LH, and UA have matched (in *) -- along with AF/KL/DL and AA/IB. I will be choosing AA which means 3-class F for the long-hauls. Go to coupon connection here. Barely shake a tree and soon-to-expire VIPs are falling loose (for a song).

Not true on those dates for SFO. UA is $3600, and so is CO and AF. The cheapest is delta at $2800. Nobody is at $2129 out of SFO Nov 26-28 except US Air.

All the airlines except US have a minimum stay requirement of 3 nights (2 nights in Europe plus the 1 night redeye flight).

The US fare allows the return flight on the first Sunday.

This is a great find. For example SFO-FRA prices out at $2,190 to $2,224 for 11/26, return 11/30, on Delta.com with a choice of flights on DL, AF, and KL.

Time to play around with other city pairs to see what else is available.
