Just curious If you check the forum related to "most EQM for the dollar" over on "that other website", there's really insanely good fares fares on UA, CO, DL, AA, some of the European airlines, etc. They pop up from time to time--- like UA selling B-fares ORD-SFO for $300 r/t around Christmas (but for travel well into 2011), or the current $193 a.i. to Copenhagen on DL. Some of these fares are so low that they've got to be mistakes--- someone fat-fingered the price, or put the decimal in the wrong place, or left out a number somewhere, or left out a fuel surcharge. They don't stick around long, that's for sure. My question: why do we never see stuff like this on US? Sure there were some nice deals during last year's Twitter promo, but I've never seen a Y/B anywhere for $300 on US. Are US data entry people that much more accurate? Or is it just that the folks on "that other website" seem to really dislike US, so nobody's looking for mistake fares on US? Bonus question: tips on how to find such fares would be appreciated. I know about using Expert Flyer and looking for good deals, finding alternate routings, and the FareCompare CPM calculator, etc, all the usual sources, but I feel like I'm missing a whole lot of what's out there. I usually search EF from a short list of origins and destinations, for example, so I'll never see a crazy fare from MCO, but there's too many airports for me to search them all by hand. If there's a better method, I'll gladly do it. Just not sure of how to get started. But I sure would like a Y/B-up to the West coast for $300 or a trip to Europe for less than that, if it's on Star Alliance (but normally the UA fares don't work for me because the positioning into ORD isn't cheap and I lose whatever savings the fare offers by just going to meet the plane). Even better if it's US where I can hope for an elite upgrade or use a CP certificate!
