UNITED FARE SO I HIGH
I’m looking at fares for my next trip – BKK to SBA via NRT & SFO 11 Nov to Dec 29,2019 (7:10a-4:20p), in business class.
This fare on United website is $5700; I was shocked to find the exact same flights on EXPEDIA for $4123. The itinerary is exactly the same in United and Expedia. How can there be such a huge difference.
The flights are as follows:
Bangkok to Tokyo Narita-United 7968 operated by All Nippon Airways
Tokyo Narita to San Francisco-United 838
San Francisco to Santa Barbara-United 5251 operated by Skywest DBA United Express
How can UNITED charge so much more? I’d ask United about this but don’t know where to send it to, or who to send it to.
You could try pricing it on google flights and then linking back to to United to book. United may only open up certain fare classes on particular channels. Why not book through Expedia?
