[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.

You could try to change to an alternate flight or routing with C availability, but don't. I'm as uppity as anyone, but given the paltry fare you're paying I'd forget about this minor chink in what is a suit of mithril. We had to fly coach CAK-ORD and ORD-CAK on this deal. No biggie. Enjoy your vacation.

What should I do?
You posted your reply in a thread about UA Z fares to Europe, you might get more help if you posted in the Delta Airlines forum.

Got back a few days ago.
7 segments. The only two that were on time were the UA ones.
2 LH & 3 AC segments were late. None more than 30 minutes.

Looking forward to the next deal!

ST (DL/AF/KL/AZ) and OW (AA/BA/IB) had sub-$2k deals this week, mostly to each other's European hubs. I don't think *A matched. AFAIK, they've all been pulled, but that doesn't mean they won't come back in the next few days.
