UA/AA: IAD/DCA to LAX in September $211

Same day turn $211. I found 3 night stays for $217. I only looked for nonstops in September using Ita Matrix.

Note that the $211 shown on GF or matrix is Basic Economy which doesn't earn miles. About $260 to bump it into G.

I saw Tuesday/Wednesdays and some scattered weekend dates into December from both IAD and BWI

No miles. Not a problem for me.

I am trying for two million lifetime miles in UA. I assume I will get
lifetime miles.

When you ASSume...

"Certain MileagePlus and Premier member benefits are not available

If you're a MileagePlus member, you will still earn award miles based on the fare and your MileagePlus status. However, MileagePlus members will not earn Premier qualifying credit or lifetime miles or toward the four-segment minimum, and they won't receive some benefits"

Basic Economy has killed the mileage/status runs.

Concur

But also, we need to distinguish in the titles on these threads somehow that its BE

When I ran these fares, it's $30-40 for a regular fare which is still decent in this day and age but none the less a significant increase when compared to the price in the title.

Once I cross the million miler threshold on United, I'll be switching most of my flying to Alaska. Lots of non stops out of San Diego now.

DCA to LAX on AA from $211

I am finding dca to lax for $211 in September for a same day turn. The price is $217 for a one or three day stay. Fare class is O.
Gone in a flash. I had found this on ita matrix.
Sunday evening. I'm finding the $211 fares again on AA for same day turns out of DCA on Ita Matrix.
