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.

Is ZFV dead?
« Reply #75 on: April 24, 2014, 02:48:02 PM »
Zfv was a great way to shave off a couple of bucks off fares out of EWR. I just noticed that there are no tickets for sale out of zfv. All searches on UAs site and Matrix are coming up empty. Can anyone explain this one??

Maybe it is due to this,
