UA ordinarily flies LAX-LAS nonstop when not on a skeleton schedule due to a global crisis. And clearly the elevated price is because many of the seats on one or both of those specific connecting...

LH has insane married segment control on their awards. No way to know that there isn't simply no I space on ORD-PVG for that LH flight.

I think a better question is when has LAX-SFO or SFO-LAS ever cost $361 (one-way)? The answer is not particularly often, but I'm sure someone has paid that before. And equivalently for selling those...

I still don't understand why people look at a particular flight pair and assume that a VP at United sat down and said "yup, we want to charge $1,444 for all our LAX-LAS pax... that's our new...

It's overnight Chicago time before the second calendar day prior to scheduled departure. I might have my terms messed up a little, but essentially that's when the DCS record is created (seatmap is...

There's a lot of supply chain fixed costs which have to be recovered before the marginal profits come rolling in, and with loads down this much they probably struggle to break even (and some of these...

I mean I would happily take your bet at 1,000,000:1 odds. After all you said there is zero chance, right? I should probably charge shipping for the $0.01 check though :)

Endorsements are NOCBBG/NOASR, so this is definitely endorsed as a Basic Economy ticket. Travelocity probably messed something up with the rebooking, but good luck getting anyone to admit that.

All middle seats are blocked, yes. They may be assigned by the computer or at the gate, but they will show as occupied on that seatmap due to the block.

I feel like it's pretty straightforward that flying on any carrier is miserable at the moment, which, I guess whatever since we're not supposed to be flying without dire need. I certainly won't be...

Clearly it is a fundamental human right to get the exclusive use of a new 747-8 for a $99 SFO-EWR ticket, haven't you heard? :p

Probably roughly when schools get out. It's two things pushing it - summer travel ramping up (more people dumped onto fewer flights) and the further out it is the fewer people have canceled yet.

I'd lean towards waiting then, and bite the bullet with $5k per ticket if things don't improve. It's a gamble either way though; if you have a strong preference for a convenient routing at any price...

There is a daily 319 SFO-IAD through 05-Jul-20 on the schedule. It's sold out on the several days I looked at in the month of June.

(3) Inconvenient routing with multiple stops or overnights

It is currently full - they will not sell you tickets. We cannot say why, or whether it will change. It is likely full of old bookings who have not yet canceled their travel, but if they instituted...

If you mean the $6,300 price I saw on a random date (30-Jun) it's pricing in full PE on SFO-EWR (J0 O4 Y0), inserting a fare break in EWR, and continuing on in full Y.

Exactly - the conditions for a refund would be a letter from a physician stating that you (specifically) cannot fly at any point for the duration of ticket validity.
