Amazing find

It can be booked on co.com as well. On co.com it implies that the base fare is $55 each way.

If YQ can be dropped then it would be as low as 1.7 cpm (without factoring in the cost of the third strike)... unfortunately nothing I've tried has met with any success yet.

Per the VH4SX8W fare rules: 1 FREE STOPOVER PERMITTED IN EWR/IAH AIRPORTS

So it should be possible to do something like
- LIS-EWR
- and then 6 days later EWR-IAH-CCS-IAH-EWR-LIS

Alas, when I try to do that it prices the outbound at the higher QH3SX8W fare, instead of this VH4SX8W fare. V class is available on all flights. The stopover rules are the same. I diffed the fare rules from co.com, byte for byte, and the only difference between the V and Q fares is in the maximum stay (2 months for V, 3 months for Q). Why wouldn't it price at V? Any tips?

Fare rules allow routing (though no stopover) through Panama as well. Be aware that Copa flights earn miles in OnePass, but not for other *A airlines.

Is someone able to post the fare rules or at least what the minimum stay is? Can you do an immediate turn or 1 night stay? i can't bring it up on ITA but can book it on co.com, however the best I can do is with a 5 day stopover.

I've also found it in december over the Xmas/NY period, but routes through Panama on the outbound and through Panama and belguim on the return so not quite as many miles.
