UA: CLE-PHX $240 - $270 RT ai CPM as low as 3.8

CLE-PHX is currently available for $240 roundtrip all-in, which works out to 6.9 cpm. Add in connections for the following results [thanks to hobo13 for help constructing this!]:

CLE-SFO-PHX r/t: 5624 miles - $261.20 - 4.6 cpm
CLE-IAH-SFO-PHX r/t: 6744 miles - $265.80 - 3.9cpm
CLE-IAD-SFO-PHX r/t: 7140 miles - $268.80 - 3.8cpm

You can replace SFO with LAX for greater flight availability (but less miles/cpm).

Routing rules for constructing your own MR:
1. CLE-CHI/CLE/DEN/HOU/WAS-DEN/HOU/LAX/SFO-PHX
2. CLE-DEN/HOU/LAX/SFO-PHX

Plenty of availability through mid-November.
Will go under 4 cpm if properly routed via IAD and SFO both ways.

The problem is that its very market specific. 4 cpm might be good for CLE but for Phoenix, its rather poor. If this is the standard I could open at least dozen threads for everyday fares.

Can someone post the routing rules for this? Having a hard time getting the SFO/IAD connection to show up.

As they say, Google is your friend. And since Google owns ITA (for better or WORSE), that's all you need.

Seriously, it's all about knowing the syntax to do ITA searches. Also consider, swapping LAX for SFO, as usually there is more availability (especially with the UA schedule reduction on SFO-PHX.)

If I put in X:IAD as a routing code on the ITA site, prices jump up to $362. If I try to build in any more connections than that, I get a message that says "Bad route specification."

If you found something better than CLE-SFO-PHX, please share.

Thanks for the clarification! Original post updated with additional routings that can bring cpm down to 3.9 or so.

CLE-IAD-SFO-PHX should be 7140 RT, assuming 500 mins.

CLE-IAD-SFO > CLE-IAH-SFO
