My buddy sent me this award he recently booked on United, and commented that it was awfully cheap. Originally, he had booked an open jaw, SFO-SIN (on the new 787 nonstop!), TPE-SFO and it had priced out at 75,000 United miles, but he decided to see if he could complete the round trip and booked a new trip with the same itinerary, but added a leg on EVA from Singapore to Taipei.
And mysteriously, the award only priced at 60,000 United miles. This makes no sense at all, given that a one way Asia award should be *at least* 35,000 miles.
I tried to replicate with no success, but hey, maybe United.bomb is good for something every once in a while.
Has anyone seen anything like this?
