    Not able to use this myself but thought others may. Found for this month sat-sun and other dates in March, as well as other combos of flights. I think its about 3.3 cpm.

    It does, but very limited results. A few days in March. Tue/Wed in April, Some weekends in May. And they all seem to require overnight.

    Last week I had trouble getting a routing I found on ITA to show up on CO. Some things you can try:

    - Try searching one way separately instead of RT
    - Select the departing time
    - If you find the first segment but the price is higher, click all the way thru since it might price out at the end
    - Restrict the search to G class fares in the advanced settings

    After playing around with it enough using a combination of the above, I was able to book it on continental.com

    I am fining the G fares that ITA is giving for the routings and the price that you quoted in the top of this post. Searching one way and putting the departing time. Only problem is getting the routing to work out. I guess if it were easy, everyone would be doing it.

    Since I couldn't use it I never tried to book, I had to play though. The above suggestions seem to work. I was able to pull up 2 one ways on CO's site. However, slightly altered. 3/5 bos-sfo-phx arr. in phx at 3:42pm then leaving phx 8:53pm -sfo-iad-bos. Just watch the times, match them up from ita to co and you may have to click through. My return first showed up at $853 or so, but the times were the same as ita, I clicked anyways then the $89+ fare showed up and the final one way was $114.

    If anyone books please post.

    I was able to price it out to $221 RT ai/i BOS-SFO-PHX-SFO-BOS on May 14/15. Wan't able to find the IAD connection, but it still prices out to about $.03/mile.

    Good glad it worked! Just to specify a bit more I searched one way bos-phx found an sfo connection, then multi city phx-sfo-bos and found the iad connection in that.

    What dates do you have open the next two months? I have been searching a lot of dates for this fare tonight. Maybe I came across one that fits your schedule.

    Good point! I forgot to mention this. It will help if you search your one way as a multi-city to force the connection city to come up. Glad you got it to appear.

    I am able to find complex routings on ITA, but no luck on CO.com also tried calling CO and it prices in L instead of G even though ITA says same exact routes/flights/airline/everything is available in G. I'm not used to CO!

    Holy crap CO give me a heart attack. I was messing around with flights last night and i guess i somehow put a flight on hold for today. I got a check in reminder call and i freaked out. I went in and it said not ticketed. what a relief.

    I'm not having any luck with multi-city and can never get it to work. I'm new to CO so maybe i'm just doing it wrong
