Well Kansas City here we come again! Both United and Delta have a $79 base fare out in the San Diego to Kansas City market tonight – no love for American.
The fare is valid now through the end-of-schedule, but as you can imagine, there is basically no inventory available on this particular routing during the summer months. Think fall and winter.
With the now combined Continental and United, I’m a bit wary of booking this far in advance. I used to be able to easily suggest even wackier routings when being rebooked due to a schedule change, but I fear Shares and getting an ex-Continental agent. That said, I’m still booking one.
