Fare basis LA21SF. Looks like it's available until Dec at least.

Good routing opportunities - UA has PDX, SEA, and LAX codeshares on AC.

Looks like it's good in both directions. On the most "direct" routing (YYC-DEN-PHL) good for ~4900 miles RT (>5 CPM) but you mileage mavens can probably find creative routings for far better.

$367 ai for YVR-PHL

Not quite so good as the $326 ai that I got a few weeks ago for May, but still pretty good.

Seats seem to be available beginning late August, and then it's good pretty good availability. I'm seeing $284 all in originating in PHL -- a Star alliance hub city, so lots of potential beneficiaries.

The fare is only $99 each way, which is fantastic. It's those darn ridiculous trans-border fees that elevate it above true mileage-run/travel-on-a-lark levels.

FYI, I worked this route for about 27k miles recently. It wasn't pretty (think nested PNRs; Calgary winter weather), but it got the job done and with ecerts managed to keep the cpm reasonable.

Thanks, OP!
