    While not a "terrific" mileage run, it's at least under 4 cpm, which is becoming more difficult to find.

    Fare basis GAP14CS
    14-day advance purchase
    Valid Mon-Sat
    Valid June 6 - November 13
    No minimum stay

    Example: July 26th, return July 27th

    I've looked for this on ITA, Continental and United. I a bit of newbie. Am I doing something wrong or has perhaps the fare expired?

    Hi, sorry for the delay in responding... it's still out there.

    On ITA, I generally start with the month-long search and enter "LAX:: IAH CLE" in the from box, and "MCI:: CLE IAH" in the to box. July 26th is still there, and a ton of dates in August.

    Got it. Thank you. I was able to pick the dates available then book on the CO site. I guess I need to learn all of the coding on ITA.

    Thanks for posting that! Used it as my first attempt using FareCompare and ITA to find and verify a posted fare and go all the way through to reservations. Makes me a little less "afraid" of the tools.
