Same base fares are in the GDS for ex-ORD as well, so presumably same price ex-ORD. Odd that *A would lead w lower fares from 2 UA hubs.

Note that while this is a great deal, you will net more PQP for UA MP if you fly with AC rather than LH/LX due to where the planes stop. In fact, with the current 2 stop config, this is near optimal.

Great fare, thanks OP

Looks like it's 90 day max between the first leg and return.

I was so excited with my previous mileage calculation I had a fat finger entry and I was going to Cuba instead of Barcelona. Someone pointed that out on a different thread. I wasnt cross posting just asking two different questions on two different areas

AC yields ~5k PQP from this!

Yes! If you add another connection each way, you can reach 5K PQP. Ex; SFO-YUL-BRU-BCN/ BCN-MUC-YYZ-SFO. Just make sure the TATL are operated by AC

These are fares that are jointly filed by The A++ ATI (UA/AC/LH/LX/OS/SN) under their (approved) cartel. *A has nothing to do with it
