United YVR to LIM r/t $1248 J Dec/Jan

Just booked:

Saturday, December 30, 2017
Wednesday, January 10, 2018

The airfare you paid on this itinerary totals: 2234 USD (two tickets)
The taxes, fees, and surcharges paid total: 281.94 USD (again two tickets)

Seemingly lots of availability after the holidays. Leaving on 12/30 opens up a departure option that is only 14h vs 24h between 12/25-12/29.

Was planning on to SEA->HND after the holiday with my kiddo, but saw this and for the price, couldn't say no. Why so cheap?

Go gentle on me please. This is my first post to this particular part of the forum!

Great deal thanks for posting. Looks like YVR IAH isn’t lieflat but I’m not sure if UA operates flatbeds on that route. I doubt it.

Standard price for the route.
IAH-LIM is 767. GF says it's lie flat.
AM is $100CDN cheaper, but not lie flat.
Routing through EWR available.

Correct; YVR-IAH will be domestic first.

All UA widebodies are lie-flat in J, so that's accurate. (EWR-LIM is also lie-flat).

The routing rules allow YVR-SFO-EWR-LIM, which would be lie-flat after the first two hours. ~28K PQM on UA for US$1249 (~1118 PQD). Requires 50 day advance purchase and 7 day minimum stay; it can be done with a Saturday night stay instead for about $170 more.
