United Airlines Fare Snafu Maybe?

Currently Being Moderated

Hello campers,

 

I've been looking at different days in January to head to SJD and try out the new JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa: San Jose del Cabo Luxury Hotels.  Random search of a couple of days in that month bring me to this far for Business Class when looking at specific days

 

 

Fares listed are for the entire trip per person and include taxes and fees. Additional bag charges may apply.

The fare displayed is the lowest available for the dates requested; however some flights may not be in the cabin you requested.

United flights include those operated by our Express partners.

There is a lesson here folks, ALWAYS search different options for your travel on the web sites.  Oh by the way the economy fare is using the main reservation page for specific dates comes up like this.  Just plane (pun intended).

    Just booked our trip for different dates than above, but it all looked the same as above and has been ticked.

    This is great, thanks for sharing, IAHFLYR! I wouldn't mind waking up in Cabo. This is tempting....

    IAHFLYR,

     

    I'm a little confused about the bottom graphic you posted.  The fare shows Round Trip $742 for Economy Class. That was suppose to be cost for Business Class right?

      Nope, that was Economy.....yes very very strange indeed so that I why we are now ticketed to SDJ.   Every now and again I'll stumble into something like this, but within a few days or even hours it is gone.

    $750 R/T P/P to Cabo and back in economy seems really high to me, though I would consider it a normal price for F/C.  We can fly R/T to SJD for $325-$425 economy or about $800 F/C on - well, you know which airline.  We will select seats in row 6 (miles of legroom) of the econ cabin and will request upgrades and hope for the best.  I would not ever consider $800 for a < 3 hr. flight in F/C.

     

    As an aside, I saw the point saver offer for an ocean front room.  When I looked at the last week in March (closer to our anniversary), the point saver for an ocean front room was available, but I paused and the next day, it was only offered at full points.  I snoozed, I "loosed."   So we're going in February on the point saver deal.  Really awesome that they offered not just a basic room on points, but specifically ocean view and ocean front rooms as well.

     

    Thank you so much IAHFLYR, for pointing out the point saver offer to me!   We are very excited!

      I just looked at the fare again today and it is $324 Economy and $706 FC.....fares are simply silly as they bounce back and forth as well as hotel rates. 

       

      The point saver for when we are going is no longer available so maybe we go the last one!!

       

      Yes, Cabo awaits.

        We in NYC area have been seeing fall airfares falling . There have been several AA fares LGA-ORD for $80 R/T for Tues, Wed and Sat departures. Even the other dates are yielding fares in the $119-$159 R/T range which is still fantastic. Everyone knows fall is their low season and travel is down so they have to cut prices to fill planes. The great thing is now with Twitter, you can follow a couple pages (TheFlightDeal) and they pop right up on your phone. I can see alerts for all kinds of fares as soon as the airline posts them.

          Not that I would take a ride on them, but with Spirit getting into the huge UA HUB here some places have lower fares now even if not substantially lower.  There is just something about getting on Spirit that seems wrong in my head. lol

            My first flight (BUR - LGA) was on a TWA Constellation!   I graduated to 707's in 1959 and now sit in the first cabin about 75% of my flights.

             

            Board a Spirit flight would be similar to climbing in a Cessna 172!!!!  The difference is I would be the pilot in the Cessna and I wouldn't be charged for:  1. Visiting the restroom prior to take off   2. Cost of the towels in the rest room

            3. fee for bringing by knapsack  4 choosing to sit down instead of holding on to a pole on take off .......etc....etc....etc

             

            Flying UA in first class is as close to "roughing it" at my age that I want.

             

            IAHFLYR you and I need to continually solve all of Marriott's  problems in row 2 or 3!!!!

              misterchk,

               

              I'd say more like being on board a C150 and yes you can be the pilot and I'll do the radio calls, unless you want me to fly the thing inverted (if it's an aerobatic C150)!!!
