    Have to make a trip to Champaign Urbana (CMI) on AA.

    Done with work travel for a little while and need 15 or so segments to reach EXP for the year again.

    Anyone have any segment runs leaving NYC? to CMI or to anywhere?

    US has been doing some crazy BDL-IAD fares for under $100 r/t, maybe you can credit to AA?

    Interesting, I see on the US website that BDL-IAD is as cheap as $112 each way. But there's at least one connecting flight (PHL or CLT) turning that trip into 4-6 hours. But, you can leave from BWI-BDL on WN for $69 each way advance purchase, that is refundable (unlike US) on a non-stop (~1 hour).

    Simply put, that's why WN has done so well to get to where it is today.

    Good point, although for the purposes of a segment run, having a stop in PHL wouldn't be that bad. :)

    Looking at ITA, I see 0-day trips for $91 and $97 with US on 10/7 from BDL to DCA, and I believe IAD for a few bucks more. Should be relatively easy / cheap for the OP to grab those 15 segments.
