    Ex. Mar. 1-7 2010 Books on Vayama for $509.83 AI

    As remorse has set in for not booking during the Delta bonanza, I was just browsing and found this which works out to 12,957 miles. I believe the AC segments book into an L bucket but I'm not sure about where the LX segments book into, so please correct me if I'm wrong about this earning full mileage accrual for UA and CO flyers.

    Price can't compare to the deal two days ago, but I guess it's better than nothing. I also noticed that the base fares for *A hovers around $200 and $300-400 in taxes, so you trick it gurus might be able to trim the fat off.

    I can only see $592 on ITA. The $592 fare has a P bucket for the Swiss flights (PICSWIUS), which earns 0 miles on MP:

    I'd try to check the fare basis for the $510 fare before booking or find another *A program that earns 100% miles for all LX fares.

    Quick update
    A LX P fare earns:
    50% on Aeroplan: http://www1.aeroplan.com/earn_miles/our_partners/partner_details.do?Partner=SwissAir
    0% on Onepass: http://www.continental.com/CMS/en-U...s/Pages/AirlinePartnerDetails.aspx?ItemId=297
    0% on DM: http://www.usairways.com/en-US/dividendmiles/earnmiles/staralliance_swiss.html
    50% on M&M: http://www.miles-and-more.com/online/portal/mam/de/earn/flight/offer?nodeid=2510711&l=en&cid=18002
    0% on DC: http://www.flybmi.com/bmi/en-gb/loyalty-programmes/diamond-club/how-to-earn-miles/flights.aspx

    I'm not saying this is necessarily a P fare, but at this point I'd be worried about mileage accrual.
