    Where did you find that, I tried to KAYAK it, but came up with $380+ from MIA on UA. Tried march 2 dep, mar 2 return. Is there a minimum night stay? I'm finding fare code HUAUPN.

    Fare is bookable - but you can't just choose your dates and expect to find the fare. Rather you need to find dates that the lowest fare is available.

    GA14KN is fare basis - so that means there has to be G inventory available on all flights.

    My post in this thread may be helpful in finding dates that are avaialble:

    Thanks for the insight, I'll approach it your way! I was opting for the "retail" way out!

    I'm finding the fares, and even kayak shows them on their mini calendar but they are not coming up as bookable options. No Matter, I'm in GRR was just screwing around with trying to book. I know from past experiences those super low fares come and go very quickly. I read your other thread and picked up a couple of things that I hadnt used in my searches. thanks again!

    Is it correct that this fare basis (GA14KN) would not accrue OnePass miles even though it is miles-earning for MP, or am I misunderstanding something?

    G was just added to United fares as a deep discount fare. While the charts may not yet be updated, I would expect it to earn full miles in CO (and every other airline that gives full miles for deep discount UA fares).

    I would not expect to automatically earn CO miles with a G fare. S;)me of super-low fares are designated as industry/consolidator fares that do not accrue miles. I thought G was one of those buckets. It may have changed recently. If so, and you buy/fly one of these, you may need to convince CO to give you credit.
