Flights are with Star Alliance carriers. Dates are fairly flexible.
https://www.google.co.uk/flights/#se...-ZRHARN1LX1250
ARN-SFO
SFO-ORD
ORD-ARN
Was able to buy similar dates for myself a bit cheaper about a month ago.
Let me know what you think of this find!!

It's a good price, but it books in K-class which only earns 50%. So in a mileage run point of view, it's not fantastic.

Two issues in your post:
1. "Only earns 50%", in your program maybe, so let's not poo-poo everyone here.
2. "Only earns 50%", we talkin' EQM or RDM?

I clicked through and it looks like it would earn me 3cpm on PQM on UA, which is the generally accepted MR equation of (Spend) / (EQM).

I think the more important caveat would be that ARN, OSL, and CPH seem to be quite inexpensive with flights in general.. not that this isn't a mileage run.

Fair fare to SFO but nothing special/extraordinary. Most promo fares to the US ex ARN or OSL are in this range.

But UA in coach is a bad choice!

As for UA, I only checked wheretocredit.com, and it said 50%. As it did for every other program too, for that matter.
Where talking EQM.

wheretocredit only gives you RDM. Swiss K is 100% for EQM.
