    did you really mean Bradley? never seen a DFW/BDL combo before! and we're missing a few other key components here.

    more details: UA, routing via IAH. red eye for 4 hour flight (arrive 5am local). no one day turn available. min 2 on mon/tue. 4456 miles RT from DFW. $133.40.

    for BDL, both early morning flights connecting at EWR. 3452 miles.

    Yep -- we really did mean BDL. Also SJU is avilable from STL for the same price

    Bunch of stuff to STT at $190 - $206 from PHL/CLT/DFW/PHX/PIT/STL

    I must be doing something wrong because I am still getting a midd $200 price. What are you using for the search?

    On ITA
    dfw::ua+ // sju::ua+
    select calendar of lowest fare
    on length of stay "0-7"

    So I found it at $134 on ITA and then went to United site and its bringing up a price of $300 for exact same flights. (FYI I am new to all of this.)

    On further review I am guessing that I have to call in for this reservation and supply them with the booking code? Is there any way for me to enter the booking code myself?

    I seem to be late to the ball game for these all the time... However, I have never been to SJU (and since HNL which I wanted to go in May was over 875 for me) I thought I'd give this a try.

    It's about a 3 hour drive to BDL, but I'll stay overnight on the outbound.

    All in 274.00 for BDL-EWR-SJU and return. Certainly not 140, but still not a bad price I don't think.
