    An only slightly more expensive version of what The Flight Deal just advertised... I just booked SMF for $194 at 4.2 CPM.

    Same-day turns from September through November, including some Saturdays (the big deal for me). Routing through IAH, I couldn't seem to get their super-deal involving LAX and IAH to go for it. (Trying to throw PHX in the mix doesn't work out given the limited UA capacity on that route).

    I gave up on SFO/SJC early in the search since the fares weren't cheap(er) enough for the gas to be worth it, but they were there and were definitely cheaper if you were willing to open-jaw.

    Bonus: Even as a silver I've had great 'luck' getting upgraded on weekends between SMF and IAH... and by 'luck' I mean there seem to be empty F seats even after everyone has been upgraded.

    Also available from BUR/SNA

    Max miles would be BUR/SNA::SFO IAH // ELP::IAH SFO on ITA
    Sample 9/9 - 10.
    It's a red eye flight from SFO - IAH so you will avoid the need for a hotel
    5,246 miles
