United this morning matched a Delta base fare of $88 one-way in the New York to San Jose market, but act RIGHT NOW if you’re interested as Delta has already pulled the fare. I wouldn’t expect United to keep its fare live beyond an hour or so today.
Here’s the nitty-gritty and an example itinerary.
Routing: LaGuardia to Houston to Los Angeles to San Jose r/t
Routing rules: NYC-CHI/CLE/EWR/WAS-CHI/DEN/HOU-LAX/SFO-SJC
Travel period: Now through end of schedule
Minimum stay requirement: None
Day of week restrictions: None
Fare basis: NA14HN, 14-day advance purchase
Fare: $224.40 roundtrip all-in
Premier Qualifying Miles earned: 6,590 (assumes 500-mile minimums)
Cents-per-mile (CPM): 3.41
The above itinerary was found using ITA’s Matrix Airfare Search, but can be booked on United directly or with greater ease using Hipmunk.
