    Hello everyone! Call me newb and overwhelmed. I've pretty much gotten this whole thing down EXCEPT mileage runs!

    I'm out of CLT so it makes sense for me to go with USAir to try and get my first elite status. Especially with Trial Preferred and about 10k miles of business travel in August (something I normally don't get). While I have TP, I figure I might as well try and max out and shoot for CP or at least P with some mileage runs. Unfortunately I can't seem to find anything good out of CLT.

    I am seeing lots of talk about MR to SJU. I just found fares for $190 and $208 all-in on USair from NYC to SJU on FareCompare. I looked the fare up on Expert flyer and got this:


    Code:
    Search:    Departing NYC on 08/10/12 for SJU
    Fare basis code EBZA1SXX
    Flying US
    Routing code 251
    EBZA1SXX            64.00        128.00    US ROUTE:0251     
                                                                 
    SPECIFIED          ROUTE: 0251                               
    TRAVEL MUST NOT BE NONSTOP.

    How do I take this information and find the flights to give me these prices? I'm pretty lost here and I think I am just missing one crucial piece.

    Waiting for my lightbulb to click on!!!

    Thanks!
    Phil

    Welcome to Milepoint! I've recently gotten a subscription to EF and am in the process of learning how to use it effectively. However, I'm sure you'll get an answer soon. There are many EF experts in these threads...

    To find what you're looking for I'd skip EF and head straight to ITA (http://matrix.itasoftware.com). Put in NYC and SJU and choose the flexible dates option. Set 0-1 night (assuming that's what you're willing to do) and see what it comes back with.

    If you want to force US metal then click the advanced routing codes option and put US+ in those two boxes.
