ARN,CPH to IAD,IAH,EWR,ORD mileage run via GIG opportunity

There is an interesting mileage run deal on this thread - UA: LIS-GIG (via EWR & IAH) 706.66 (V fare; 19602 mi, USD 4.6cpm; multi-city bkg.)

I was going to book a CPH-ORD, and booked a CPH-MUC-ORD-IAH-GIG return trip for 6340 dkk (850) in stead. That gives me around 23000 eb points (4.9cpm usd).

I have one overnight in ORD on the way over, and 3 on the return (worked for 10 days in ord too).

I'm flying SK to and from MUC and LH over the pond both ways.

It's possible to fly A380 between FRA and IAH for this trip, but I needed to offload the bags in ORD.

FirstClassSE booked this:

Very interesting.

I'm not sure however of the EB earnings on UA V class.

Here it says "minimum 600".

Does that mean 100% earning?

Yes - all classes on UA earn at least 100% nowadays.

Just to let you know, the same flight works for EZE:

CPH-MUC-ORD-IAH-EZE return trip for 6827 dkk.

hmm...I think I will stick to the one-stop LH connection via FRA

The cheapest fare should be in the same region - admittedly, may not earn 100% in EB or any other *A FFP, but I can survive this rather than 3 transfers to/from EZE
