    The easiest way is to find possibilities on ITA, then book it as segments on .bomb. As someone somewhat new to the process, let me see if I can walk you through it.

    First, go to ITA Matrix: http://matrix.itasoftware.com/

    For your search, you'll put in BUF for Departing, CMH of course for Destination

    For the routing code, input UA,CO UA,CO UA,CO+ - that will request that ITA come back with 2 connections if at all possible, if not more. It will then search for flights meeting those parameters and come back to you showing routes and fares. (If you really want just UA flights, eliminate the COs above).

    Hope that gets you started on the yellow brick... er, wonderful world of ITA searching.

    UA's routing rules only allow 1 stop between BUF and CMH.
