    via Scott's Cheap Flights. But Miami is definitely the most interesting of the 3.

      Strongly disagree. Phoenix is probably one of the best and most under-rated destinations in the USA. Miami, and Florida in general is not pleasant.

      • Agreed! Gateway to amazing national parks in Arizona.

          Few hours from the South Rim and GC National Park. Flagstaff is also a really great spot. Overall Arizona is epic. Desert Botanical Garden is also a must.

    • 21 February to 21 March is the sales period - Ultra is just outside of that

    United's Mileage Plus miles earning is based solely on the cost of the ticket, not the number of miles flown. That changed back in 2014 or so. I think the OP was looking at the "specialty" tickets section of Earning Miles on United's website. I don't think these tickets qualify for that label. It's actually better to earn the 50% than it is to earn the 5 X fare (or higher if you have premier status). You will not earn many miles with a $800 fare. First off, they convert the fare into USD, and some taxes do not count. They use the "base fare" and the 5 times (or higher) multiplier. United was by far and away a better frequent flyer program pre-2015, and even better before 2012. Back then, I'd fly twice to NYC, and in doing so, I'd earn enough miles for a return trip back. Nowadays, the frequent flyer benefits are on par with Qantas, and maybe even a bit worse.

      All true, but keeping someone in the air at 1000kmh for $20 an hour is a pretty good trick.

    Good price but below average on/off flight experience.

    We usually see around this price into LAX. Basically you are getting across USA for $0 - nice… Wish was available from Brisbane.

  • Wow,crazy price to the East Coast.

  • For this price I would be willing to tolerate United.

    Good price, but Miami is a very overrated destination - it's an even faker Sydney with a man-made beach and terrible public transport. This flight would be great for a Florida Keys holiday though as flights to Miami are rarely this cheap.

      Or as a launching pad for another cheap flight to somewhere awesome in the Caribbean or Mexico!

        Launching pad you say.

        That comment is heavy with meaning.

    • Key West is on my bucket list, what's the average of flight prices usually? Would Miami be worth just an overnighter seeing as you're flying into there anyway?

      • Grab a cheap limo and head straight for South beach, well worth a couple of days even just wandering around, it can be expensive but you can avoid that and it is truly unique, you could take a short cruise, lay on a beautiful beach if that's your thing, hire a pushy, people watch on Ocean Drive, I'm tempted to go back at these prices, and head to the caribbean afterwards, do it!

        • Sounds pretty good to me! Cheers for the tips

  • The dates I looked at had a 6~ hour layover spread across two separate stops each way, just something to keep in mind

      You'll need about that for clearing immigration at the TSA
