I flew FLL-EWR a few months back, skipped the ZFV portion.
Wouldn't the miles for the train post if United doesn't even know if I took it?

Did you skip both inbound and outbound?

was this a roundtrip ticket or 2 one ways?

Did any United agen even mention anything about train ride leg

For me this was the most useful tool learned at the DD seminar.
:/ Hope this doesn't disappear.

I don't think its over, it just haves to do with a ZFV sale, UA makes sometimes ZFV sales and that's when we extend the sale to EWR etc....

Just used ZFV to shave $150 off a OW ticket from MIA-EWR.
Is there an OTA where I can book the ticket or is it only bookable on UA.com?
All the OTA's that I tried didn't recognize it as a valid airport.
