I cannot repeat it on One Two Trip or ITA. Anyone else with this issue?

Amazing fare, obviously belongs in a more secretive part of this site though. Seems to have very limited availability sadly.

Great find! Keep in mind some of those Milan connections actually require changing airports.

The BA one even makes for useful throwaway ticketing even with checked luggage for a one-way to LHR. [There is an LHR-LGW land sector at your own expense that involves claiming bags at LHR.]

$218 for a one-way from NYC to LHR that earns pretty useful miles is a pretty good deal.

The JFK-CTA deal is still showing on CheapoAir, but the $181 fare is only the base fare. With tax, title, license, and YQ, it's $320. Still a helluva deal but not the $181 you were expecting.

For instance, I recently priced out an itinerary for international travel on *A partners that included only a single UAX segment (everything else was NH and AC J). I was able to issue it no problem on UA.com, but no way no how could I get it through a search of the UA website.
I am pretty proficient on Matrix, but have only played around with Google Flights a little bit, mainly because I cannot find a calendar function like Matrix has. Does it have one and I'm just missing it? When I'm looking for MR's, because I have a flexible schedule, I use the calendar function a lot. Also, how about a multi-city search.

Matrix has been so on-again, off-again lately that I'd like to find an alternative. Thanks!

I wasn't able to pull it up on Matrix with the proper syntax for what I saw on Cheapoair at $291 on NOV 5-9.

I'd like to be able to search up other dates for January perhaps.
