NW/DL vs UA fare to Asia

UA has constant on sale fare to Asia since late summer. But surprisingly, NW/DL just ignores UA's on sale fare and insists on their high price (difference more $200) for most US-Asia city pairs.

I think NW/DL just dreams of selling the seats for those high fares.

Any thoughts?

Yes: fly UA. You can use the price difference to purchase E+ seats. Or you can just keep it.

Are you referring to lowest discount fares? I've found NW to be same or cheaper than UA this summer (May, June, and July trips MCI-SIN via MSP/DTW & NRT), BUT I've been booking "lowest refundable" fares b/c my schedule changes. NW was in the $1800 to $2400 RT vs. $2200 to $3600 range for UA via ORD & NRT.
