I've noticed that recently, both the website and the spam emails about "Special Deals" are totally void of anything about why the fares are so "special". No pricing. No dates/times for when the specials are good for. For instance United.com has two "special" International Air Deals and they even specify that: Problem is no fares are shown. At all. And if you click on each of the two offerings, there are no specifics on when these "special fares" are available/valid for. It is really puzzling why they would bother to promote something as special, but be totally lacking with information on why it is special.
