Starting Jan 1st this year UA 1P and 1K get 100% RDM bonus on AC, and 2P get 25% - same as flying on UA metal.

Point-wise the only thing you miss out on by flying AC over UA is the potential for DEQM.

re:AC/ HKG FARE on Cheapoair

You can't make seat selection on ac's website . However, you could request aisle seat on cheapoair's website once ticketed . After requesting , seat assignments will be automatically generated and shown on your itinerary on aircanada.com -> manage booking .

How did you (or did you?) make your seat selection?

Thanks,

That is making this fare very tempting, even from EWR. It will be more miles from NYC, if combined with a separate transcon from NYC-SFO. The fare seems to be very much alive. I was trying to see if it pulls up, OCT25/NOV15. From SFO it shows $498+72 and from EWR it is $738+56.

It does seem to be still active for other dates, however the date I booked earlier (Sept 10 - 14) are coming up more expensive, perhaps there is only a handful of seats available on each flight at this price?

That's always the case, isn't it?

fare is still there. today US had seats on some flights that were within $50.

I think AC is just dumping seats on its YVR flights, the error might be letting us get seats on the YYZ flights.

I snagged one, but true to billing, CheapOair has failed to email me a ticket number some 6 hours later. I wonder whether this is really going to happen. Will post what class it books into when I actually feel I have a ticket. The six digit RLOC doesn't register with AirCanada. I don't get a good feeling about this--- after no reply to my inquiry by email and half an hour on hold, I was cut off holding further. What kind of business conducts itself this way?

I haven't received the AC ticket number yet either, I called cheapoair, they said it may take 24 hours to receive it.

Note that fare is also good if you use the multi-city option and want to end your trip at PDX....also go to/from SEA for $498 before taxes....doesn't seem to require 6 nights or even 4 for that matter.
