Already headed to EZE on those dates; on the previous $606 deal. Wish I had come up with this crazy routing!

It looks to be nice there; highs in the mid 60s, lows in the mid 50s.

Many thanks for the keen eye. The fare ran last month and I bought one ticket at that time. I have been regretting not buying a second at the same price for travel on a later date.

You have erased my regret.

Blimey!

Phx has some $669 fares July 21/22/23.

Question about ITA search: when I do a month-long search PHX-EZE, 7/18 thru "30 days later", I see the $669 fares.
If I change the search dates to one day later, 7/19 thru "30 days later", those fares don't appear. Why?

Mr. Raffles longhaul, you are without a doubt, my favorite person-du-jour!

I haven't been able to reproduce this, though I'd be very interested in tracking it down if I could.

If you still see it, could you PM me the details? Thanks!
