*A - EWR > MAD - $272 USD return

Spotted on Google flights:

https://www.google.com/flights?lite=0#flt=/m/02_286./m/056_y.2020-03-19.EWRYYZ0AC7653~YYZMAD0AC836*/m/056_y./m/02_286.2020-03-26.MADEWR0UA50;c:CAD;e:1;sd:1;t:b;sp:2.CAD.37193*2 .CAD.37193

Good availability throughout this year and next. Tickets are booked into Economy Basic which only earn 50% PQM on UA (cannot comment on other * partners). However, for this deal you have a number of *A partners to choose from including UA, AC and LX. Upgrading the fare to normal economy will cost you another $150 USD more which for many may not be worth it since you're only getting extra miles out of the upgrade if you're already an elite (i.e. E+ seating is free on UA even in Economy Basic if you book the ticket in a certain way).

Safe Travels,

James

I guess AC is playing ping pong rather than tennis since they won't deign those of us in YYZ with a route

Has anyone been able to find the SFO TO LON U/A airfare for $299. I checked the day after this was posted on skyscanner, matrix ita, google flites, kayak United, and did not find it.

That route on UA is back up to around $410.
usually these super discounted fares don't last long. (don't tell that to the current BCN/MAD fares <300 that have been around over a week)

SFO usually has some good fares. SFO-BCN now is $340s.. if you're looking for UA op only... then... maybe you'll have to wait around longer lol
