    Where have the e-fares gone? Seems like for the last few weeks, they either have not come out at all, or have posted much later (i.e. Wednesday vs. Tuesday). AA's e-fares, which consistently suck, have been been posting as usual.

    Even though I am an AA elite, I rely on UA e-fares to get to my TVC home every other weekend, either on UA, or better, on AA when UA features ORD-TVC and AA silently matches. This is really messing up our plans.

    Is this a multi-week glitch, or a glimpse at the future?

    Since this board came about, I find don't find myself on FT much.:D

    That said, there is in fact a discussion on FT. Nothing conclusive.
    http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unit...lidated-where-e-fares-week-thread-merged.html

    On the issue of the holidays and snow causing them to not issue, the really strange thing is that in the past, when the fares were not offered, at least there was a link to them and a "No E-fares this week--please check back" type message. Lately there has been zilch.

    My understanding is that they were suspended for a while to deal with some synchronization of things between UA and CO. They are back, sort of, but only the "this weekend" ones. I really hope the Saturday ones return at some point.

    There are lots of weekend (leave Saturday, return Monday or Tuesday) fares out there. From CO. ;)

    The CO version have been more competitively priced than the AA/DL/US ones in recent memory IMO. Starting at $119++ r/t rather than $159 or $189 is a nice thing.

    Looks like efares are back, but just the current weekend fares. No midweek, same-day, or next week fares posted.
     
  9. Uh-Oh.... Looks like United might have killed them permanently. I have trouble believing there is nothing out of DEN or ORD for this weekend.
