UA: YYC-PHX via ORD and SFO/LAX - $300 ai - 3.9 to 4.3 cpm possible

First MR post.

Books in K for all segments.

YYC-ORD-LAX-PHX-LAX-ORD-YYC leaving 9/25 OR 10/1,8,22 = $300; 6980 miles and 4.3 cpm - redeye back from LAX to ORD on 757 gets you ORD-YYC next morning.

YYC-ORD-SFO-PHX-SFO-ORD-YYC leaving 10/1 = $300; 7744 miles and 3.9 cpm but quick overnight required in SFO.

Lots of work, but we don't get much here in YYC.

Cheers.

Also have to give a high-five here too, as it's hard to find good MR's from any Canadian city!

Question AC fare match?

I was curious if AC was matching, to meet their low fare guarantee?

Sure enough, there are some low "Flex" fares on aircanada.com! Also, works in reverse!

never tip off AC, they just call UA to cancel the fare....
