[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.

LAS-CDG: BF $1564 ai is back!

Just booked 06/29-07/16 LAS-CDG for $1563.60...P class. UA/AC metal otubound; UA metal inbound. Smokin'....looks like my entire summer will be spent on planes in business completing my 1K!

Looks like UA metal from July 1 is there, too. Didn't try any other cities yet as was crapping myself to hurry and get this booked.

Works LAS-AMS also for $1470!

HNL - CDG is the same $1564 as well. Can't believe they put these fares back on the market.

Just put a 7-day fare lock on SMF-ORD-AMS-IAH-SMF
UA-472 SMF-ORD First (A-320)
UA-909 ORD-AMS BusinessFirst (B767-300)
UA-59 AMS-IAH BusinessFirst (B777-200)
UA-1015 IAH-SMF First (B737-800)

Fare class = P all segments.
Depart Sun 24-Aug
Return Sun 31-Aug

$1479.79 all in

Looked at plenty of availability out of SMF for July & August to both AMS and CDG. Checked other European destinations such as FRA, LON, BRU, ZRH but they are all much higher.

I guess it wasn't a "mistake" then if they brought it back?

Be careful with P class if flying on UA and crediting to A3. It's not an eligible booking class http://en.aegeanair.com/milesandbonu...-miles/#UNITED

If i book a short connection time and there's a schedule change which will leave me to misconnect, can I switch co-terminals (SJC to SFO)? Thanks.
