Cheapest LAX - BOM now on united site seems to be 798 but return is on swiss air. Great find though! Unbelievable price to India.

I got $ 826 going on LH and returning on LX on Vayama. 21 Nov to 30 Nov. Problem is that it is Fare Basis K which I believe does not accrue mileage.

codeshare K class

I can't seem to find anything sub $800 that doesn't include a LH or LX codeshare in K class, which doesn't accrue any miles on UA. Anyone else finding anything that accrues 100% miles on all segments?

Nope,you loose abouth 4000 miles to LH on UA or any other program I know. I think you get something like 25 pct on MM for LH sector.

Hmm, I guess just because it says K class on UA's site when you book doesn't necessarily mean it will book into that class on LH or LX. I would suggest complete a booking on UA, wait for the confirmation email, go to LH or LX to look up your booking there (using the "other confirmation numbers" link on your booking information on UA's site to get the codeshare's confirmation number), and then check your fare class with them. If the fare class on the codeshare is one that is listed on UA's site as a class that accrues miles then I think you would be okay. You can always cancel with 24 hours so there's no risk.

I would do it myself but I already booked and canceled a booking after realizing the K problem without stopping to think I should check with the codeshare to confirm the class.

Please let us know how it goes!
