UA MR LAX-IAD(EWR)-FLL 265-300rt

Hi guys, I just found a mileage run deal with United from LAX-IAD(EWR)-FLL rt $240-300
Avaliable mid June, second day return avaliable.

Total 6378miles. Around 0.38c/mile. I know this is not the best deal for many, but for those who donít have time to go to Asia or Europe, this deal is much easier.

Tips: I just realized that itís possible to use Skiplagged to find mileage run deals. It recommended lax-ewr skiplagged fll, but when MR, no harm to fly the fll lag.

Actually, there is potentially a huge harm with this. Do it repeatedly and UA could demand the fare difference or shut down your account; which negates the point of a MR

Although Skiplagged recommended me to skip ewr-fll, I can still fly to fll as Iím mr. Iím flying longer distance without breaking the rules. My point is that Skiplagged is a good tool to find mr route if I still fly the ďskipped lagĒ, and I donít need to search tons of transfer on google flights to find the cheapest one.

Misread you then, thought you meant to skip the final leg. I suppose you could use skiplagged for that purpose; the problem sometimes though is that it doesn't differentiate between basic economy fares, so the true price is often much higher from a MR perspective.

Can skiplagged display multi-city itineraries?
Can't seem to find that.
Thanks

I think you mean 3.8Ę/mile (or maybe $.038/mile). But definitely not 0.38Ę/mile.
