Does this make sense??

Just researching a possible route, and I see that flight 7670 (SLC-SFO-RNO) is showing "Coach Flexible" at $864, and "First Non-refundable" at $175....

Coach is 689 dollars MORE than first?

No one ever said airline pricing was rational. There is always a significant difference, however, in refundable vs. non-refundable prices.

This is definitely a UA metal - just make sure you really fly in First and not in E+ - view the seat map before buying a ticket. After viewing the seat map (IMHO E+ section was displayed and not F), I decided to fly via PHX (for the same routing SLC to RNO) just to make sure I really fly in F (only for the miles and not really for the service & G&T in plastic glasses)
