Cm: Bos-scl $336, 3.2 cpm

Seeing lots of dates for BOS-PTY-SCL-PTY-BOS on Copa for $336. 10,645 mi. = 3.2 CPM. Won't come up on ITA but I've gotten it to price through on Orbitz with SkyScanner, so I think it'll book. Pretty good deal!

Great! Seems like a "very very special" price, I tried other combinations and it is available also ex ORD.

NP!
I don't see anything past middle of December.
for those interested looks like the business class is about the same as the normal for coach. I don't live in Boston, maybe this is normal prices.
The business price goes well into March 2016

Cool find. This is a published fare BOS-SCL, TZ00F, base fare $240 r/t. Refundable against a $140 change fee.

Books into T. Valid routing is BOS-PTY-SCL only. Does not allow stopovers.Not upgradeable with CM upgrade certs (which exclude T fare class). Prices as $240 plus $83 in XT taxes, $5.50 in XC taxes, and $7 in XY taxes. Requires a 3 day stay e.g. Thu--Sun or Fri--Mon as shortest possible trip.

Not sure what the CM Y situation is like and this is a long coach trip. I have taken CM J previously on a PTY-LIM sector; it is like domestic UA recliner J but with slightly better food and pretty good service.

Thanks mherdeg for the clarification, since I couldn't find it on CM website and only on few ota's I thought it was a sort of mistake.

I think it's an inventory thing. When I look in ITA and places, I don't find "T" inventory available on the return sectors SCL-PTY-BOS. The outbound prices into T okay but the return prices in a more expensive fare class because ITA and other OTAs can't find T inventory.

However, Orbitz seems to have access to T inventory and is okay reserving and ticketing it. So maybe an issue with how different OTAs get different fare bucket availability given to them.

As seris7 mentioned: available from ORD as well. Showing 680$ but once you click through:



Use flex-search to find available days.
