[FARE GONE] Lots of UA ATL-AMS (and other cities) Z fares; less than $2k for July

There are two categories of US cities involved, DL hubs and other, generally secondary, airports.
From some DL Hubs, UA P fares are valid to a much wider range of cities in Europe:
SLC/MSP/DTW/ATL/CVG/MEM-AMS/MXP/FCO/CDG/MLA/VCE/TRN/FLR/NAP/PMO/CTA/BUD/PRG/CPH/IST/WAW/ARN/OSL/KRK/PRG/TLL/RIX/etc
(but not JFK nor LAX?)

Other airports are valid to a smaller set of cities in Europe:
BOS/SJC/SMF/MOD/BWI/BUR/ONT/SNA/PSP/HNL/SEA/PDX/AUS/PIT/TUS/TPA/ALB/etc/etc-AMS/MXP/FCO/CDG/MLA/VCE/TRN/FLR/NAP/PMO/CTA/etc

Most UA hubs don't have the fare filed (not SFO for sure), but apparently EWR has at least EWR-VCE/NCE (but not EWR-MXP/PMO/FCO/CDG)

Some destinations in Europe have a slightly higher base fare:
MRS/LYS

(please add more cities to either origin or destination side that are valid)


Be careful in your airline selection - there are PQM/RDM implications to this. For example, for the UA program, UA P earns 150% PQM/RDM, LH P earns 100% PQM/RDM, and it appears that OS P earns nothing.
Similarly it looks like UA P class credited to Aegean (A3) earns nothing. Visit this United webpage then click on the Star Alliance partner to determine mileage earnings.

Looks like some OTA's are still pricing with the deals. Dummy booking now for BOS-CDG in Aug on Cheapoair.com has LX and AC coming in at $1600 in biz.

Looks to be gone from the Bay area - was in the process of booking SJC - CDG and fare more than doubled by the time I got to farelock. Looks like it's also gone from SMF, and either of those two to AMS, FCO or CDG.

I got one r/t SJC to AMS for sub-$1500 so I count myself lucky!

As I was helping a friend book a ticket on united.com at around 11:30 am EDT, it died (from multiple USA origin cities). But I quickly switched to Orbitz and got the ticket issued (they did earn a small number of "Orbucks" that way, too). As it's now after 12 noon EDT, I'm not sure if the fare is still available through the online travel agencies, but if you want one, I'd book ASAP -- literally.

You guys are paying way too much. In fact more than double too much. Look at other thread.

Thanks, OP. Got three...including a one-day trip to Rome with my SO over the 4th. At those prices, one is compelled to fly somewhere. It's mandatory. Not only that, 1K will now be a slam dunk for us.
